Sweetwater Creek Campground

Sweetwater Creek Campground is beautifully maintained by the US Army Corps of Engineers.  You won’t believe you’re only an hour away from the world’s busiest airport.

If you cannot find a happy place at Sweetwater Creek Campground, with its 151 spacious campsites on Lake Allatoona, you might find a cheap motel somewhere.  Good luck with the towels.

They might not be perfect for honeymoons, but there are 43 tent sites that don’t have electricity.  It seems a few campers can survive for hours unplugged.  Somehow.

For the rest of us, there are 108 “normal” sites with water and electric hookups.  One is reserved for RVs.

Looking for a place to camp with a group?  There is an area at Sweetwater Creek Campground specifically set aside for groups.  All you have to do is talk them into camping outside.
