Upper Stamp Creek Campground

Upper Stamp Creek Campground has 20 sites, 18 have electric and water hookups.  (That leaves two sites for brave souls who believe they can exist overnight without electricity within 100 feet.)  This campground is managed by the Army Corps of Engineers.  You won’t believe you’re an hour from the world’s busiest airport (unless you see planes blinking in the sky as you peacefully sleep under the stars).

Please Note

Upper Stamp Creek Campground closes for the season after Labor Day.


Lake Allatoona is one of the nation’s most frequently visited Corps of Engineers lakes. Nearly seven million visitors each year enjoy picnicking, swimming, camping, hunting, fishing, boating and observing wildlife along the 270 miles of shoreline.

The lake is annually restocked with bass, crappie, bream, gar and catfish, making it a popular destination for anglers. Fishing jetties are available at numerous shoreline fishing locations, and a dock is provided at the campground.

There are unconfirmed reports of swarms of fireflies that blink mysterious messages late at night.  Perhaps you’ll be among the fortunate few to witness this phenomenon.
