Rowboats are better than no boats. You can still catch fish in an old bass boat held together by Bondo, duct tape and prayer. The Fortunate Ones pull beauties on skis in boats with sound systems more powerful than VW Beetles. Sooner or later, everyone who is owned by a boat will need one of the fine marinas on Lake Allatoona. Take your pick!
The Big Daddy of Marinas on Lake Allatoona
Park Marina — inside Red Top Mountain State Park — is open every day to serve boaters on Lake Allatoona. They can accommodate boats of any size and their many services will make all your visits valuable and enjoyable.
They never settle for what was best last year or the year before. For more than 30-years, they have continually upgraded, updated and improved all they have to offer your family and your watercraft.
Park Marina is home to Paradise Boat Rentals, where you can rent boats in just about any size, color or flavor: pontoon boats, runabouts and personal watercraft.
Park Marina is the Lake Allatoona’s largest marine repair service for anything from drive replacement to seasonal maintenance.

Master the seas, then come ashore to bid the day goodbye at Sunset Grill.
Victoria Harbour Marina on Lake Allatoona has the deepest water on Allatoona. That means no depth issues, even when the lake is drawn down for winter or during other low-water conditions.
Their break wall helps keep the harbor safe. Gated docks help keep your property secure and there’s convenient parking for access to wet slips.
The best part — whether you moor your boat there or not — is Sunset Grill. The best place this side of Tahiti to watch a sunset.
