Nicest park in or around NW Atlanta area that we have found. Friendly management, very decent spots. Well maintained. We camped at Allatoona Landing Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground would be much better if not for the trains which come by every 20 minutes or so during weekdays (slightly less on weekends) and train horns are very loud and close! Lots of shady sites which would be great in summer. Lakeside sites would be nice also but no cable or WiFi back there. This park has obviously seen better days years ago and has gone down greatly since. Overall I felt a rating of 6 is generous. If we had a better choice of parks in this area I would have stayed elsewhere but we wanted conveniences of WiFi and cable TV for March Madness games. We camped at Allatoona Landing Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This a beautiful park but only a few sites have sewer, we booked a sewer site but ended up on non-sewer site. Went to office and asked for sewer. Was given two sites. Both were too out of level so we moved back to original site. The worst thing about this park is the trains. Every two hours a train comes within feet of the property and blows horn to make sure every one is awake. The staff was nice but we were not offered assistance to the site. Most of the sites are empty. There were level sites with sewer but we were not offered one. This park is OK for a day or two but not good for us for longer periods. Other than the trains, this is a nice park We camped at Allatoona Landing Campground in a Motorhome.

We selected this park for a two-night shake down of our new to us RV. The site we reserved was lakeside and we were clearly informed at time of reservation that there was no cable, sewer, and the WiFi would probably not reach. We were pleased with the site. It backed right up to the lake and was pretty. We went swimming right from our campsite. The office staff was friendly and helpful. We declined help with finding our site as it was very simple. The site was not level but considering the banks of the lake, not unexpected. We did have to use our full complement of leveling devices to get our back end up enough to reach an acceptable level. Overall, one can tell that the park was once a much more vibrant place and has since seen significant decline. Many of sites have broken paving and few are level. The restroom and bathhouse were clean and in good working order. The train tracks are nearby and very active. Expect significant train noise. It is clearly no longer as nice as the website portrays but it is perfectly acceptable. If I were to return, I would select the same slot and be content. We camped at Allatoona Landing Campground in a Motorhome.

Pretty campground. Caters to boaters and fisherman using Lake Allatoona. Appear to be lots of permanent units for folks using the resort. We got in late, well after dark, so the security officer handled our booking. I've never had such a fast tour of an RV park in my life. I couldn't tell a thing about the sites we'd supposedly seen. Paved sites, but they're not all level. We drove to the site we were assigned, but it was nowhere near level. We just took another one that was close to level and set up, knowing we were leaving the next morning. Campground store was well-stocked. Park is several miles off the interstate, but it's a nice place to stay. Advise getting there during daylight so you can pick out a more level spot than we did. Back-in space, but it wasn't a problem. We camped at Allatoona Landing Campground in a Motorhome.

This was the first we had stayed here since March of 2012, and a lot of changes have been made. The main thing is the permanents are no longer here, in fact you may not stay longer than 1 month. This makes the campground much better without looking at all the trashy units. Many of the sites are not level, and only about 21 are full hook up, although they do have gray water hookups available throughout the park. It is possible to find a level site or a site to accommodate a big rig. The train tracks are nearby, but for the Atlanta area it is satisfactory for a visit. The Wi-Fi worked well. Much, much better than in the past. We camped at Allatoona Landing Campground in a Motorhome.

Previous reviews are very correct. There is an extremely narrow road getting to campground. Check in very difficult, took a long time and the staff could not tell us how to get to our site. When asked how to pull onto the pull thru site she told us hook-ups were on the "right" side, meaning "correct" side but she did not know how to get there. Wifi is non existent. The campground is full of old units, seasonal. We wish someone could explain why such good ratings in the directories. Other overnight campers had same opinion as us, and would never return. We locked the door and went to bed early but that did not work due to the constant trains going through the campground. We camped at Allatoona Landing Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We were absolutely appalled at what we found here, especially for the price and the false advertising. The beach, pool, buildings and other amenities have not been kept up for years. I found it very funny that the camp store in the office, has beach and pool toys/clothes galore. The staff is not helpful and do not understand what it is you have to complain about. The Wi-Fi simply doesn't work. The sites are varied, few are level in any way, only a very few FHU (many with gray water drainage only), some blacktop, some cement, few with patio area. This is a campground, not an RV park. And it appears to be a campground for trailer trash and many fulltime residents. The bathhouse was unclean and not maintained with shower heads missing. The trains are incessant, sometimes 15 minutes apart. This is an $18/night campground, not $38. We will not be back although we have family in the area. We will find something else.

This was a disappointment for a highly rated campground. Signage/office was all nice, and sites were quiet,paved and pretty enough with trees and picnic tables and fire rings, etc. (though not that level, but can forgive due to slightly hilly lakeside area), but we noticed a weird sewage type smell right away and off and on the whole weekend. The next thing we noticed is that the pretty full campground was really a trailer park for quite permanent residents as evidenced by canopies set up with stuff piled under them next to RV's, and chairs/potted plants and stuff stored under RV's that looked like they had been there awhile. It dampens the whole "vacation atmosphere" (and they kept the nice little laundry room full). We never found the "great bank fishing" area advertised, and the "beautiful, sandy white beach" was very dirty and unkempt with pine straw/cones, weeds and dilapidated dock areas and a very old broken down playground was next to the beach. The pool was covered, but the area around it was covered in tree debris. A plus-a very nice new wooden playground with porch swings for the parents was next to the office. The bathrooms looked clean/roomy with nice tile and plenty of showers with changing areas (didn't actually use), but the showers were missing their shower heads. We already knew about the train noise, so it was no surprise, but can be a real issue at night. We knew this campground was more for boaters (very nice looking marina areas), and this was a little early in the season, but some of the amenities need a great deal of work and upkeep. Also, if a campground is really mostly a trailer park with permanent residents, should it be advertised with high scores in campground directories? We are used to state parks and I am concerned that all private campgrounds that I have reserved for a big trip this summer in our new RV are going to be like this. We camped at Allatoona Landing Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is a OLDER campground and long term tenants. Most of the sites have signs "not potable water" majority of the sites were not level. We noted 13 sites that were Big Rig suitable for overnight camping; of those 5 did not have sewer. The train noise was very disturbing at all hours (6pm,7pm, 9pm,12pm, 4am, 6am). For the price and condition with all the distractions they should consider this a $20 nightly rate. Walmart is a better consideration. We camped at Allatoona Landing Campground in a Motorhome.

We did not like this campground because of the noise of the trains. We also did not appreciate the unleveled camping spots. We also did not experience good internet connections. In addition, we did not appreciate the fact that many campers were allowed to discharge their grey water on the ground, which then ran downhill to lower camp sites. We camped at Allatoona Landing Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

I agree with others that this campground has a huge train problem. They roll through nearly every two hours. The staff are not eagerly willing to help when you require solutions to problems. We had very poor wireless services, which timed out regular with no corrections. Sites are very unlevel, paved but very poor to park your rig level on. The bottom sites are many times wet, as those above at higher sites, empty their grey water through water hoses from their rigs because they have NO sewer hookups at many sites. When we were here, we experienced many sites occupied by insurance people who were working from this park, attending to insurance claims in the immediate area from past storms. All run diesel trucks that are very noisy every morning. These people also over load the wireless network so it is very difficult to use for any length of time. Our experience was very poor and no one seemed to care about our concerns. We camped at Allatoona Landing Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a beautiful park, and the people are friendly and nice. There's just one reason I didn't give them a "10"-- Trains. Lots of 'em, all night long - blowing their horns and making the ground shake because they're about 50 yards away. For a light sleeper like myself, it was a long night. Had I had access to this website when we were making our plans for the night, I would have driven a little further, I think? We camped at Allatoona Landing Campground in a Motorhome.

We arrived a day early and after hours however, the nighttime attendant was very helpful and was able to call and get us a site for the evening. We had to move the next day but that was to be expected. The campground is on very hilly ground and their were very few level sites. The office staff was very helpful and friendly and were able to give you a lot of information about the surrounding area for dining and entertainment. Unfortunately, as previously stated by other reviewers, there are a lot of very loud trains which go by at all hours of the day and night. The road to the campground is fairly narrow and hilly with some sharp turns but has a good surface. The campground needs a little attention to be rated any higher. Their interior roads are getting bad and there is very little room to park a "toad" vehicle. We camped at Allatoona Landing Campground in a Motorhome.
