For 17.75 with full hook-up cable and WiFi, level pull through next to office, great helpfull owners, can't believe anyone would give them a negative review. Would stay again in a heart beat. - rdb1

I agree that this is a difficult park to rate. There appears to be only 2 pull-through spots for overnighters, or short stays. We were right behind the office pulled up next to restrooms and laundry. We were warned to watch where we parked, and make sure we didn't hit the roof of the building with our slide. It was a quiet park, good WiFi and no issues with water, electric or sewer. Site was level. The two sites that they use as pull throughs, look as though they are part of their interior roads normally. Owners were very nice. The roads getting to the park are very narrow. We would stay here again for an overnight stop. - Vicki K

Paid the Passport America rate of $15, plus $2 for electric and tax. This place is hard to rate. Almost all sites are permanents or storage units and they surround the perimeter of the property. The 2 FHU transient sites are behind and next to the far side of the office building. The office building has the bathrooms and laundry on the backside of it. The 2 overflow sites are on the near side and in front of the office building. They have a fairly large and not very level field that could be used for dry parking. Our first night was in the near side overflow with 50 amp, cable and water. It is on the road side of the office. Our next 3 nights were in the FHU behind the office and right next to the bathrooms. The WiFi is usable. We had a lot of foot traffic all around our RV as we were next to the bathrooms and laundry. But the people are very friendly here. As long as you know what your in for, this place does work out for the price. Some people might not like the closeness to the office building and people walking all around their unit. But, for the price it is a place we would return to. - Bob and Inga

This is an interesting park to review. The park is clean, neat, obviously well cared for and the staff was friendly. Our area was for short timers like us. The "upper" section was for longer stay people, we were told mainly construction folks working in the area. This area was also neat and orderly. Other quests were very friendly and we had many pleasant exchanges during our short stay.
The only down side was the park bordered a trailer shop so the sound of air tools could be heard from our site and the side of the garage was 30 yards from the front of our trailer. Still, we had a very pleasant two night stay and would stay there again if passing through. - Bandguy

We stayed for two nights while traveling south to Florida driving a 45ft MH and towing a car. The CG was easy access on and off the highway and access through the campground was easy; we were able to navigate the park with the car attached with no difficulty. Internal roads and sites are gravel and sites are long and mostly level. Utilities are well placed and work well. Two sewer hook-ups per site, on each end. Wifi did not work at all for us but our Verizon hot spot was good enough for email and light internet surfing. Campground staff were very nice and helpful. We would stay here again if in the area. - LvR

We were just passing through; it seemed OK . Got hooked up had no cable or WiFi, which were advertised. We decided to go ahead a take shower so we would be ready to go next morning . We both waited till next morning--no light in women's bathroom. It was still out next morning but was light enough to see with the high up windows .
Don't know if there was a problem but expected to have cable and WiFi. So might need to ask before checking in. The shower was nice and clean even though the light was shot. - SJBama

Decent location for our needs in Atlanta. Easy on-off to I-75 with a Pilot at the same exit. All gravel with fairly level sites with okay shade. The A sites are very close together. Our 42 ft MH pulling a toad was too long to stay hooked up and still get to the sewer hookup which used 30ft of hose. Office not open for much of the day. Opens at 2. Lady checking us in was rather rude and put out by customers. One other camper we spoke to had similar comments about the staff. Of all the CGs we have stayed at this was the most unfriendly of all. Too bad. Probably wont be back. - msrebel

Located half mile off I-75, easy to get in and out with big rigs. Also at the same exit, two large truck stops for fuel. Stayed here one night, had a site up front. Site was gravel, as well as long and wide enough for 40ft with tow, three slides extended. We couldn't level the rig, even when using blocks, but it was only off slightly and didn't cause any issues. WiFi worked good during the day, but was slow in the evening. The dog area up front is not enclosed, but was all grass with bags & trash cans. Road out front got busier as it got later in the day, but we didn't hear any noise in the rig with AC & fans running. Park itself was quiet and a good spot to stop ovWe didn't unhook, so ordered pizza from local place. Pizza was good, but delivery was slow! - KKColorado

This park is NOT big rig friendly. Asked for a pull-through site as we were only staying one night pulling our tow vehicle. Had to move sites due to not leveling, front driver's wheel at least 3 inches off the ground and rear duals as well. When we relocated, same problem, left with no choice but to unhook and re-set within the site. Still, could not level without front tires completely off the ground. Only good note, power and water pressure was good. We will not be back! - Adair

This was our first time staying at this park. We couldn't get a reservation at our regular stop on way to Florida so thought we would give this park a try. Staff was very friendly and helpful, but like many KOA parks the sites are tight. We were in a pull through, but our poor neighbor still had to move their truck off their site for us to pull out. The nice part of the park was that 2 pull through had brick patios with a nice patio set (for extra $$). The petting zoo is very small, but the peacocks were very cool and wandered all over. Not afraid of people at all. It rained the entire time we were there so didn't really spend much time outdoors. We did get our warm cookies, yum. All in all, not a bad place to lay over, but it is a little tight for bigger rigs. I wish I could give it a better rating as the staff was great but the uneven sites combined with the tight fit forces me to lower the score. I would go back though if I couldn't get into our favorite park. - LovinFT

WiFi did not work. Connected but would not stay connected. Park clean, easy in and out. If they can't have continuous Wifi they should not advertise. - Dick Schmidt

Nice campground. It's a county run park but it rivals most state parks, and most of the facilities look pretty new (in 2015). All camping spaces are paved, with decks, nice fire rings, etc. Restrooms are pretty standard in the campground. Several really nice playgrounds for the kids.
Only thing to be aware of is the steepness of the roads and some campsites. This campground is HILLY so many of the sites, the only flat space is the paved pad and the wood deck.
Caretaker was very nice. Beach area looks nice and has canoes to rent, but we were here in April and it wasn't open for the season yet. - Buddy Ray

Paved interior roads and sites. We opted to get a 'premium' site overlooking Lake Allatoona. Had walk down access to the lake also.
Sites are very large with a gravel pad for tents/shelter. Concrete picnic table and grill.
Nice beach and boat launch.
A word of caution to big rig owners, call in advance. Didn't see too many sites that would accommodate a 40' rig. - Iceman567

This campground is small with some tight turns. We stayed here during the week and the campground was nearly empty. The beach for the kids was nice and clean. Thursday and Friday it starting filling up and the quiet went away. The crowds also increased the demand on the shower facility. We would stay here again but I will be very selective of the campsite I choose. - walterwegozz

This was the first campground we stayed at with a travel trailer. The hosts were very nice and directed us to a different pull-through site than the one we registered with and it was SO much better. Almost all tent sites are on the water and the RV sites are inland, but they are wooded and quiet. I agree with another poster that there are few level sites than can handle large rigs, but we have a 17-footer so that didn't bother us. The lake was close by, fishing was OK, clean restrooms and showers and the swimming area was very well maintained. We will definitely return! - SimeralKing

Excellent campground! Not really a bad site in the campground, but the lakeside sites are amazing! However, no reservations are accepted, so you need to arrive during the week to get a lake site. There are several lakes for fishing, and a really nice beach right next to the campground. Ideal for biking and hiking as well. The only grills available in the campground are built into the fire-rings. There are at least four really nice handicap sites available that remained unused during our stay with a full campground. No sewer hookups at sites, but a nice dump station is at the campground exit. Very strict rules exist, so make sure to follow them! And when they say the lake is open from "Sunrise to Sunset," they mean 6:30 until 8:30 with no exceptions. We enjoyed our visit and will definitely return!! - RandyP

This is one of our favorite campgrounds because it's secluded, has excellent sites. Lakefront sites are spacious. Some sites are a bit unlevel. There is a beautiful beach for swimming. The scenery is gorgeous. This is a friendly campground. It is on a first come first serve basis and you fill out your envelope and pay on the honor system. Staff come by sites and are friendly. This is a dog friendly campground too. - hqndagal

Nice campground setting. Lots of shade. Nice beach. Bathrooms and showers where a bit dirty. Not much hot water. You must pay a one time vehicle fee, $3. 00, in addition to the camping fee. Very good fishing. Many camp sites are located right on the water. The campsites themselves were clean and level. Great place to bring a canoe. - flyby6563

We stayed here Labor Day Weekend. All of the State Park and COE campgrounds on Lake Allatoona tend to get reserved early, but this one doesn't. This is a little jewel of a campground. I think the sites are better than the ones at McCaskey Creek COE campground a few miles away. Some of the spots are really better left for tents as they are hard to get into with anything bigger than a class B. Rear lounge trailers have a lot of choices for great views as the back-in sites face the lake. However, in these same sites the patio faces the road or adjacent space with limited views of the lake. The better sites in the park are 8, 11 and 12 if you have a rear lounge and don't require the patio to be facing the lake. We stayed in site 11 and angled our trailer about 45 degrees to the pad and had a good view of the lake from the patio area. Site 14 is a very nice back-in with the patio facing the lake, but is only about 16 ft wide. Sites 24, 25 and 27 are also very nice, but are also a little narrow. Site 27 is on the end of a peninsula with lots of water surrounding it. Site 54 is nice, but also only about 16 ft wide. I would avoid sites 32-37 as they are very close together and on the main road through the campground with not much to view.
The roads are narrow, but easily navigable unless there is a vehicle coming the other way as all roads are two-way. There is a nice beach as you enter the park and nearby in another section of the park is the boat launch area. Water pressure is high (120psi).
The only complaint is how the spots are left by previous campers. Our fire ring was filled with partially burned trash, and we observed many empty spots where the fire rings were used as trash dumps. Despite this, we will return here again.
The campground is closed October through February. - GA Bob

We have been RVers for 36 years. We find Georgia State and County parks to be among the nation's best. Bartow Gatewood Park was not a disappointment. The foliage was stunning, the campground well kept and beautiful. The roads are paved as are many of the RV sites. There are plenty of lakefront sites with beautiful views, with decks built for the picnic tables. One side of the campground has a great view of the dam. We were greeted by the nicest hosts (Dicky & Vicky), who even delivered some firewood to our campsite for us. They were seen often driving through the park and if we were walking, they always stopped and asked if everything was OK and if we were enjoying our stay. I can't remember having such a nice reception in a government-owned park! Even though it is called Bartow Beach Campground, the beach was closed years ago, but there is a natural little beach that people enjoy swimming from. If I had to guess, I would say it's about 5 miles off I-75 out SR 20, and well worth the drive! - n2fun

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. - tripster

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. - j_parker

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. - TheJim

The park staff was friendly and courteous when checking in and very helpful on the phone when making same day reservations.
The campground is very clean, well kept up and has a "state park" feel with lots of full hookups. As in the other reviews, sites are not very level and takes a bit to get level enough. Sites are spaced apart nicely for a private park. The park is gated. Was not sure what to expect as we drove down a long rather narrow paved road in the middle of the hills and woods. Was pleasantly surprised. - NanciRV

Our first time staying here with our 18' travel trailer. This is a very social campground. Sites are close together and people visit. We liked it. Our neighbor (who full-times going back and forth between 2 parks) introduced us to several other campers who were very friendly and welcoming. We also meet several others on our own. Hookups are weird in that they are in front of the pads, meaning power and water have to run under the camper or around. Barely made it with our 30' water hose. Also used every bit of our leveling blocks to get somewhat level. Only downside is we were 2 hours late checking out (our own fault) and were charged a full night's rate. We will definitely return here and pay attention to the time on check-out day :) - Gpforet

Just a quick one nighter! A real forest feel to the place; felt like camping. Plenty of room to maneuver our 57' total length. Gated access with a code. We would stay again and longer next go-a-round. - Full Timers 2
