McKaskey Creek Campground

McKaskey Creek Campground has 51 campsites.  Thirty-two sites have electric and water hookups; some are premium and have water views.  Nineteen primitive sites (with no concrete pad) are also available at this Army Corps of Engineers facility.

McKaskey Creek Campground is on the Etowah River, a tributary of the Coosa River, which flows into Lake Allatoona.  The serene lake and peaceful surroundings offer a respite from city life. Visitors enjoy various water sports, hiking, hunting, and viewing wildlife.

Your new neighbors will be raccoons, bobcats, red and gray foxes, white tail deer, squirrels and chipmunks.  If you spot black bears roaming the area, please do not approach or feed them.

The area’s rolling hills are filled with lush oak, maple, black gum, dogwood, magnolia, pine and hickory trees.  Ferns and honeysuckle bushes cover the ground.
