  • This is a great place for camping and hiking but is still really close to civilization. There's a pool for summer enjoyment and trails all around for hiking and habitat watching. Nightly rates are pre...  more »

  • Love this place. Been going for years. Today was my first time on the sweet gum trail though and was very disappointed that it was not well marked. (Several crossovers and crossroads that were both bathed red). Love my state parks! Camping, hiking, boating, day trips. Love that our state parks are also dog friendly (just wish more people would pick up after their dogs and there were more "poop bag stations" for those that don't plan ahead). So much more.
  • What a great park. There is camping, hiking, boating and fishing. In the Camping area the showers are warm. There is a Landry so you can keep your clothes clean. The restrooms are clean and well maintained. This park is on huge lake and hiking is just amazing. Dear are through the park. The Ranger Staff is super. They go above and beyond to make sure you feel welcome. Definitely a park to stop by and enjoy. Bicycle are a good thing to bring here as there are ample places to ride.
  • I can't say enough good things about red top mountain. We've had a boat and been on the lake there at allatoona since 2008. For the most part, everyone that enjoys this lake is there for the fun of it and to spend time with good friends. of course there's the occasion drunk that spoils things for everyone but thankfully that's not the norm. Whether you like boating, swimming, fishing, or just hanging out on a beautiful day, red top mountain is a beautiful place to spend it.
  • Beautiful lake! Water was semi clean. The facility is not well maintained. No real restroom or water at picnic areas when it marks on the map as restroom. It has only dirty porta potty . Small visitor center parking was full with a dirty restroom. Staff was nice. Many buildings were either shut down / temp fenced in, or looks like it can fall down anytime..
  • This is the place to go and enjoy different outdoor activities, either as a family or with youth groups. I had visited the campgrounds and the park with the youth group I lead several times and it has been a wonderful experience. Red Top Mountain campgrounds are well maintained, they have easy access to hiking trails, its the restrooms are clean and well kept. They have the Americorps team leading some of the activities and classes like Archery. This was our third year attending this class and everybody had a wonderful time. The park is just 50 min away from the Atlanta perimeter, very easy to access any time of the year.
