One of Lake Allatoona’s favorite spots is Old Highway 41 #3 Campground, about 40 miles north of Atlanta, near the town of Acworth. This delightful Army Corps of Engineers getaway has 44 campsites (43 standard, 1 RV), all with electric and water hookups.
Lakefront sites are available, giving visitors sweeping views of the magnificent lake. Fire rings, picnic areas, drinking water, flush toilets and showers are provided. Even “less enthusiastic” campers will find comfortable conditions at this pleasant campground.
Old Highway 41 #3 Campground is open through Labor Day.
Old Highway 41 #2 Day Use Area will be closed during the 2012 season.
Boating, fishing, canoeing, kayaking, and swimming are popular activities along Lake Allatoona, an 11-mile-long treasure created by the Army Corps of Engineers. You’ll find hundreds of spots along the 270 miles of shoreline for picnicking, hiking, hunting, and relaxing.
