Bartow County’s Gatewood Park

Located east of Cartersville and north of the Allatoona Dam, Gatewood Park in Bartow County offers numerous amenities for those who love Lake Allatoona.

Campers will be happy to know the park has picturesque lakeside sites with hookups, and some primitive sites as well.  All are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Be warned, lakeside sites book up quickly during good weather and in the summer. Unlike the other campsites around the lake, there is no minimum length of stay required on weekends or holidays. Dogs are allowed; however their shots must be current; and, they must be kept on a leash that is no longer than six feet.
