The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers maintains many Day Use areas near Lake Allatoona and the Etowah River. With the exception of Upper Stamp Creek and Knox Bridge, they are handicap accessible. Most have picnic areas that are ideal for barbecues and parties. The Day Use area closing time is 9 PM — with the exception of Sweetwater, which closes at 8 PM.
Cooper Branch Park and Riverside Park are open for the season. The Splash & Play at Riverside Park will open on Memorial Day, Monday, May 28, 2012.
Unfortunately, Kellogg Creek and Old Highway 41 #2 Day Use Area will be closed for the entire 2012 season.
Boat ramps at Blockhouse, Clark Creek, Cooper Branch, Galt’s Ferry, Payne, Stamp Creek, Tanyard and Victoria are open year-round 24/7, depending on water levels.
Unplug yourself. Try to unplug your kids. Go outside. Have a picnic on Lake Allatoona!
