Most US Army Corps of Engineers campsites around Allatoona are closed for the 2018 season, but you still have two USACE campgrounds open for autumn camping on Lake Allatoona. Opening dates for the 2019 season are listed below.
For those of us who don’t love barbecuing our bods in the hot summer sun, autumn is our favorite season in the South.
Warm days, cool nights, fewer thunderstorms and the beauty pageant of fall foliage illustrate God’s creation and make being outdoors a delight.
The USACE at Allatoona Lake provides eight campgrounds with 576 public campsites.
Each campground offers a wide range of campsites, including: double campsites, group campsites, primitive campsites, and premium campsites with electrical and water hookups.
