I've reviewed this park before, it's local to us and good for a shakedown to begin the season. The park doesn't change much, however the Ga weather can, so come prepared for it to change during your stay based on the season. This stay we were in site 82 which is a 20 ft back in, near the front of the park after you loop around the CG. The site was nice plenty of room for parking two cars , a long back in with a few pines to avoid but not to bad. The neighbors were kinda close but no worse than most parks. In this case we had good neighbors, with kids but very quite. Bath house close by but it's one of the older ones, do your self a favor and walk or drive up to the new bathhouse near entrance to the CG. This is something that The Park needs to address, upgrade the bath houses! Our camping buddies were across the road in site 83, it is a 40ft Back in, a huge lot with lots of privacy. These sites were, again near the entrance to the CG, and not on the lake but just a short walk to lake access. We will go to Red Top again, it's not only close for us but it's a favorite as well. We camped at Red Top Mountain State Park & Lodge in a Travel Trailer.

This was a go to for us in tent camping years ago, now we are back in the camping game, but in a 21 ft travel trailer. The Park is nice, lots to do, located on Allatoona Lake so fishing, swimming and great hiking trails. Nice shaded park for campers. Bath Houses were clean but older and could be updated. We stayed in site #80, a 20 ft back in , which is a tough back in but a good view and a big site. Lots of sites available with lake views and another section for big rigs long pull thrus, along with several 40 ft back ins. This is an older Park with a lot of traffic, but kept up well. We camped at Red Top Mountain State Park & Lodge in a Travel Trailer.

Red Top Mountain State Park Review Stayed the second week of May 2017 in a 35 foot class A motorhome. First, all the good things. Beautiful location very woodsy campground. Staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. Views of the lake are incredible. Hiking trails are phenomenal. Iron Mill trail is open for biking & hiking, it was wonderful. Stayed part of the week in a green back-in site and rest of the week in Red pull through site. Saw deer almost every day. Very relaxing & enjoyable. Bathrooms were clean & well-maintained. Negatives: If you are not comfortable driving your rig on tight narrow roads with trees on both sides, stick to the Red pull-through sites especially if your rig is larger than 30 feet. Check-in is at 1 PM and strictly enforced. There is only 1 RV parking space at the visitor center, if you arrive with another RV, one of you are stuck on the road near a curve (dangerous). Their reservation system is frustrating as you cannot reserve a specific site. You can only reserve a color coded site type. The Red pull through sites are the largest but have no lake views from the sites ( Lake views easily accidentally via short hike). Some of the back-in sites are very challenging due to curved narrow roads along with the trees and boulders. No sewer hookups. The dump station was easily accessible and well-maintained. Laundry facility was robust and clean. We did not go to the beach area at the lake. Dog-friendly campground with easy access to the hiking trails for dog walking. Sites have fire-rings. Sites were hard-packed dirt and somewhat level. On our back-in site there was only a 30 amp service but pull through site had 50 amp. Leveling at the back-in site required addition of leveling pads to our hydraulic jacks at rear of RV to get level. All-in-all a very nice campground. We camped at Red Top Mountain State Park & Lodge in a Motorhome.

Great park with lots of amentities. Lots of trails for hiking and even a wide dirt trail for biking. Beautiful setting on Allatoona Lake. The campground is adjacent to the 4-mile Iron Hill Trail for hiking, running, or mountain biking. Easy access to other trails in the park. There are 12 pull-through sites. We stayed in one of these and would definitely recommend them for all but the smallest of rigs. No lake views here, but sites are spacious and easy to get in and out. The roads in the campground are hilly and narrow. Use caution. The entrance to the campground is a coded gate. The campground seems more oriented to tent campers. The tent sites are next to the lake. Best to use the Glade Road entrance to the park. If you use the other, main entrance, you'll have to drive across a long, narrow, old bridge. The Glade Road entrance avoids this. When you get to the park, DO NOT CHECK IN AT THE VISITORS CENTER. There is no parking for RVs there. Instead, CHECK IN AT THE PARK OFFICE, which is on another road and not the main park road. Check in time is 1 pm, and THIS IS STRICTLY ENFORCED. If you arrive too early, you'll have to wait to check in. Overall, a nice camping experience in line with other Georgia state parks. We camped at Red Top Mountain State Park & Lodge in a Travel Trailer.

Good restaurants and cute downtown in nearby Cartersville. On the first Saturday evening each month in the spring, summer, and fall, classic cars are on display in the town square as part of a cruise in. Red Top has a variety of trails for hiking and running for all skill levels. We've run in the annual Red Top Rumble trail race in February, which is one of the most popular trail races in Georgia. You can also swim, boat, or fish in the lake.

Busy park just north of Atlanta and a short drive from I-75. Access to the park is fine, but parking at registration is tight for an RV. I had to park along the side of the road to register as cars were parked in the limited RV spaces. I stayed in a pull-through site and the access loop was a little narrow. Most sites are on a slight rise and fairly close to each other. Nice hiking and plenty of wildlife to observe. No wifi in the park that I could find. Faint train noises but not an issue in my opinion. I will be happy to stay here again. We camped at Red Top Mountain State Park & Lodge in a Travel Trailer.

The rate is for a “40 foot, back-in site” with 30 amp electrical and water hookup. There is also a $5 per day fee for park use. The park has five types of camping: 40 ft. pull-through, 40 ft. back-in, 20 ft. back-in, tent w/power and water, and tent w/o utilities. We are over 20 feet, so we had two choices. The 40 ft. pull-through sites are lined up all in a row, so we did not want to do that, so we chose the 40 ft back-in and made on-line reservations, which are not site specific. The park is fairly easy access off on Interstate, with some fairly narrow roads but doable. You arrive at the Visitor Center/Camper Check-in, where, unfortunately, there is no parking for RVs for check-in; so we parked in the middle of the lot with lots of dirty looks from other visitors. After check-in we proceeded to the campground, just a short ways down the road. Be aware of the entrance gate. When we arrived, it was open. We proceeded through and it started closing. We barely avoided being hit by the gate. Apparently someone had come through before us and actived the gate, then it started to close. So make sure you let the gate close, enter your code before entering through the gate. This is a very strangely laid out campground. Many of the sites have a lot of slope and are on sharp curves. For larger RV’s I would not recommend anything but the 40 foot pull-through sites. We found a site, but it was very hard to get into, even for our smaller 27 foot RV. We also had difficulty leveling. The power was 30 amp with two-30 amp plugs. Power was good. The sites are so far separated that there is good privacy even though there is little vegetation. Prior reviewers complained about train noise; although we did hear trains, they were far in the distance and not a problem. It was very quiet and nicely dark at night. The campground is very tree-covered, but we were able to find a hole with our portable dish to get satellite TV, but don’t depend on it. We had good Verizon phone and data (4G) coverage. The hiking trails are very nice and are a major attraction for the park. We would stay here again, but would want to make for sure we arrive early enough to find a somewhat level site. We camped at Red Top Mountain State Park & Lodge in a Motorhome.

After a short mountain drive in the dark (scary for us newbies), we found our way to the gate just in time to catch the camp host before they locked down for the night (10 pm). A quick check-in and some excellent guidance from the host, we were set up in one of their large rig drive through sites. This was quick overnight for us, and the site was perfect. The pull through sites aren't level in the traditional sense, but they are 'crowned', and we found it a breeze to just stop when we were level. There was a nice concrete pad adjacent complete with a fire ring and a lantern hook. We had a delightful wind down listening to the night sounds of the woods. And woods they are. This is a densely wooded state park. Our closest neighbor was about 2 sites away, but they just as well have been a mile. There was lots of cover between us. After a good nights sleep, we woke up to deer in our yard, which made us wonder what else may have visited in the night. The closest bath house was closed for rehab, so we packed up and drove to the next bath house. This is when the character of the place shows. The drive gets very narrow, and steep at times. The sites in the next section are back-in, and probably not suitable for larger rigs (we're 25 feet and could have fit). The bath house was basic and adequate, tho they could use a shelf in the shower area. Once we cleaned up, we continued around the loop to exit and found that there was scant room to get our (little) rig by an inappropriately parked car. Things are tight around here! Of course this second loop was where the lakefront lots were (Lake Allatoona), and the view was spectacular. We didn't linger, but plan to come back and stay for a few days here soon. This park is very convenient to I-75, and well worth jumping off for. We camped at Red Top Mountain State Park & Lodge in a Motorhome.

After a stint in a few Alabama State parks, we very pleased with this park. The sites were had great separation and views of the lake were great from our site. Very clean grounds. The bathrooms were very dated and not clean. No problem for us as we use ours. Nice trails and very helpful camp hosts. If you are staying more than 2 nights, consider annual family pass as it includes 2 free nights camping for $75. Pays for itself if you go to more than 2 parks in a year. We camped at Red Top Mountain State Park & Lodge in a Motorhome.

Stayed 2 nights. Lots to do, especially for the kids. Stayed in a lakeside site. They do not really track what site you are at, just tell you what sites to pick from based on you rig. Camp host was friendly and followed us to a site. Mentioned were we could get free firewood for the evening. All the lots are shaded, very quiet. Park has tennis, a beach, boat rentals, minigolf, hiking, (riding trails?) I think. You can swim right at you site. Staff was very friendly and helpful as was the host. You could stay here for a week of enjoyment, will definitely stay here again. We camped at Red Top Mountain State Park & Lodge in a Motorhome.

This was very nice park. Some of the sites were not level. We did not look any further then the pull through sites. They are very tight getting in and out of. The park had a lot of things to do at it. A very nice lake. I prefer a back in site but with the size of these sites I would strongly suggest a pull through for a bigger vehicle. If in the area, we will be back. We camped at Red Top Mountain State Park & Lodge in a Fifth Wheel.

$28 full rate, seniors 20% less. Very limited number of sites suitable for motor home and larger rigs. All of those are in the first area, a row of 12 pull throughs. Don't venture deeper into the campground without first checking for a site. It is tight - real tight - and that was in the toad. But our site 11 was a nice long pull through, almost level, 50 amp, water, and a very limited cable lineup (about 12 stations). Easy access off of I-75. Cartersville has just about one of everything. Overall a very nice park and area. We camped at Red Top Mountain State Park & Lodge in a Motorhome.

This State park features nice shaded sites. It is not very good for big rigs because of tight narrow roads. No sewage, and poor phone/internet connectivity in this area. It is very quiet, with great outdoor walking trails.It is not really convenient for an overnight from interstate 24 but it worked out due to pull through sites. The sites arey are not very level.

We stayed 5 nights and LOVED it!!! It didn't hurt that it wasn't very crowed (during the week) and the weather was perfect! We were able to see deer around us the entire time! Shady spot, nice fire, beautiful scenery. Just perfect! The camp host was very nice. He helped us fix our lights as we were leaving. I hope he's here the next time we come. And we do plan on coming many times! Thank You Red Mountain for a great stay. We camped at Red Top Mountain State Park & Lodge in a Motorhome.
