You snooze … you lose.
Sorry, but our friends at the Army Corps of Engineers based at what they call Allatoona Lake — what we call Lake Allatoona — have bad news for those of us who didn’t plan far enough ahead.
As of Friday afternoon, June 21st, all the campsites for *all* Lake Allatoona Corps-managed campgrounds have been reserved for the July 4th holiday weekend — with one exception!
As of 8:54 PM, Friday, June 21st, there were eight tent sites available at Sweetwater Campground.
If that link has expired, go to www.Recreation.gov and answer the questions on the left-hand side of the page. After a few tries you should end up viewing all the campsites at Lake Allatoona.
Could there be a cancellation? Sure.
But if you cannot get a campsite at the lake, pitch a tent in your backyard and pretend you’re deep in the woods. At least you’ll be near your own shower.
