This is a great park located less than an hour north of Atlanta with well-maintained, clean, and quiet trails and campsites. I tent-camped on waterfront campsites for a total of 6 nights over two weeks in July. The campground section of the park is gated with a combination lock. If camping, keep the gate code handy. I look forward to camping here again.
Lake Allatoona is beautiful and swimming was nice, with clean, clear water and no clay muck at the bottom like at Lake Thurmond/ Clarks Hill. Do note that there are rather populous small fish that will nibble on idle swimmers (not problematic but can be a bit startling initially), much more-so than in other lakes I've visited.
