Campground off the highway a little bi and was very quiet. Most sites had shade but not all.The sites were level for the most part and not very spacious. The pool was great and refreshing. The bathrooms need an overall makeover. The camp host are over loaded they could use some summer help. The campground was sold out, better to make a reservation. - myo

Park is located near I-75, but no traffic noise was noticeable from our site. Most of the sites in the middle section of the park have trees. There is a pool, but it was not in service at this time. All of the sites are pull-through, but many are quite short; only long enough for a smaller trailer and possibly a tow vehicle. Only a few sites have sewer hook-up and most of these were the shorter sites. There is cable service with 48 channels. The park is fairly clean and adequate for an over night stop. The sites are not level. - Phaeton_Owner

Had a couple of short alerts on my electric volt meter, but otherwise utilities worked well, including WIFI with my signal amplifier. Roads are dirt and gravel so when dry it is very dusty. We requested and got a site that was open to the sky for satellite reception, but most sites are not. Cable worked fine, but like all KOAs, it had very limited list of channels. - ramblin' vagabonds

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

This is an older county park. Clean and neat. The roads were paved but narrow, twisty and hilly. The spots were cement and very level. Large rigs may have a difficult time maneuvering. There were picnic tables and fire rings and garbage barrel with a recycle bin at each spot. The view of the lake is beautiful. Bath house is dated but clean. Staff was very friendly and helpful. - esta34950

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

This is a very difficult park to rate. It is only a parking spot behind the office building in what appears to be a driveway, but it's the site. There are two that I saw. First off, be VERY CAREFUL walking in because I fell on the sidewalk leading to the office. It was 3-4 inches uneven, and someone was speaking to me while walking and I did not see it and fell on my newly replaced knee and other knee...hard. I am still sore today. I told the office lady they needed to mark that, and she did go outside and put a couple of stakes there. We had 50 amp service, sewer and water and cable and free wifi, so we were comfortable other than hurting. There are quite a few trains going through late at night, so what we thought would be quiet turned out to be a sleepless night. Most of the sites are permanent people, but they were quiet. We probably wouldn't stop there again just because of my bad experience, but if you just need a place with all the basics, they do have it. Their laundry was right next to our rv and only $1 for washer and $1 for dryer and that room was clean. The people were nice. - Ginny H

Mostly long term residents, our site was along side the office directly under the wifi tower. Even so, wifi very week and not really usable. Satellite friendly site. Big central lawn area great for dog walking. Very friendly staff and residents, eager to assist with recommendations for site seeing, restaurants, etc. Easy off hwy, short drive to historic downtown. All in all, a very nice little park. Would stay here again. - lovinretirement

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

The office staff is wonderful. We used a section of the park designed for overnighters. Pull-throughs, lots of space between rvs, good hookups, cable, sites rather level, roads and pads were smooth with good coat of gravel, grass trimmed with nice mulch accents, etc. Long term sites were equally clean and residents very friendly. The wi fi is lacking as when people come in from work, the system is overloaded. One aspect to give it a community feel, was a cute, small chapel in the middle of the park. If there on a Sunday, we would have definitely gone. Nice touch. The office also offers free popcorn to all guests (very good) which goes great with a glass of wine after a day's drive. We would stay here again. What a gem! - Bob & Ann

Loved this little gem of a park! Everything was superbly maintained. The campground is located a short distance off the interstate and very quiet and peaceful at night. Longer term campers appeared to be located on the south end of the campground and short term campers on the north. The utilities were all functional including power, water, cable and sewer. Plenty of room for big rigs and tow vehicles. The office staff and reservationist were first class: personable, professional and efficient. A well run campground which others in the business should aspire to. Great for an serene overnight stay either before or after fighting the traffic in Atlanta. - Jacarl

A very nice campground. Staff was very nice. A very clean and up kept campground. Sites are a little close, but not so close you are on top of each other. There are actually two sides to the campground. The "hill" side seemed to have full time living, but was kept clean. We were on the "flat" side and all are pull-thru. All and all, a nice, quiet, friendly campground. - Spirit1999

This was the opening weekend for the campground season. Park was in good shape. Area we were in had restrooms only, no bath house. Some site are smaller due to age of campground. Hosts are very friendly, and helpful. This is an old park built in 60's. First site we were reserved on could not get my camper on, even though it said it would accommodate. However hosts allowed us to move with no hassles. Good easy power hook up. Sites on the water are more expensive than inner sites. Weekend crowds book way ahead so you may or may not get a water site when lake is full. Over all good campground and location, as well as value. - RDM1980
May 2015 - $30.00
There are only 2 full hookup sites, 150 and 151, and I had 151 which is actually 2 sites. No wifi or cable, but other utilities worked fine. Site is in the trees, so no satellite reception and limited antenna reception. Park is spectacular located on Lake Alatoona and is about 10 miles from Canton. There is a pre-registration process, but it is worthless. I still had to go through the entire regular government check in process when I arrived. - ramblin' vagabonds

Lovely place to stay! We had 50 AMP, water, but no sewer. There is a dump station on site. Each overnight campsite has an area that is cleared out and contains small pebbles, where the grill, concrete picnic table, and fire ring is located. It was like a patio because there was adequate space to site around. We cannot say enough about the beauty of this park, which is along Lake Allatoona. It offers a beach area which has white sand, and a playground for children. Also contains a separate section for day campers. Nice areas for long walks and bicycle rides. Would recommend this park highly! - Ferdy

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. - CoachLen613

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. - MIke-Sunstar35F

Nice pull through sites. Easy to get in and out, dump station was easy to get to. - Brian Mullins

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

This is a very nice and wooded campground on the lake. There are lots of trees so not many sites have a clear view of the lake, but you can see the lake through the trees and there is easy access to it. The sites are spacious and have plenty of privacy thanks to the trees. The camp hosts are very nice as well. Verizon worked okay there, but with our booster it was better. AT&T actually worked better than Verizon. The only thing we did not like about this campground is it felt like we had a curfew. They lock the gate so you can't get in or out between 9pm and 7am. Not only does that seem unsafe in case of emergencies, but it's also inconvenient if we wanted to be out past 9pm, or if we had guests that didn't want to have to leave the park by 8:30pm (that's the rule for guests). Our purpose for staying there was to visit my sister who lives in that town and if we went to her house for the evening, we didn't want to have to get home by 9pm so we just ended up spending the night at her house. And when she visited us it was inconvenient that she had to leave by 8:30. This was in October and I believe the hours are a little better in the summer, but it's still a little unsettling knowing you're locked in for the night. In 3 years of fulltime travel we've never been at a campground that does this. We have been at several that have gates, but they always have a code so that people staying there can get in or out after hours. It would be nice if this park would implement a gate with a code. - Love2Camp777

A little hard to reach with low limbs and utility lines on narrow, hilly, curving road but ok if taken slowly. Easy, friendly check-in. Nice campground on a pretty lake. Tall, thick tree cover so hard to get satellite reception. A very few over the air stations available. Our site was long and level. Utilities were conveniently located and worked well. Site was nicely separated from others with plenty of space. Nice sitting area with table and fire ring. Restrooms were nearby and needed cleaning. Mainly a place to relax for a few days. Rate is with senior pass. - starwind

Our stay was great! We had a campsite on the waterfront - view was beautiful. Nearby campers were friendly and respectful of park rules and other campers. The park was clean and all sites were neat, spacious, and private. Our site was shaded and so comfortable. Camp hosts were extremely friendly and accommodating, enjoyed our visits with them going in and out. No WiFi which made it difficult for us to navigate locations in Georgia. Also no sewer hookups. All in all, though, our stay was very good. - bnkrn3y

We stayed for one night and wished we could have stayed more! We were in campsite #80. If you can get #82 or 98 they have a great view of the lake. Lots are spacious and offer some shade. Site surface is asphalt and features a fire ring and picnic table. - zjxgator

Two stars, just for the lakeside campsites....but I can't recommend McKinney. Read reviews elswhere, they are accurate. Great campsites, but a deeply ingrained culture of rudeness and outright hostility - nothing like anyone's ever encountered at a campground. The often referenced "extremely rude lady" at the office is just that, don't bother smiling and being pleasant, that apparently makes her even ruder. Strict? I was TWO whole minutes late pulling out from our campsite, the guy who rolled up on his golf cart yelled at me. Then, to make things worse our dog, who never strays, was briefly off leash because I was about to get her to jump in the car...she ran up to the guy to be friendly and he erupted "That's an automatic fine for being off leash!!!" This was my next door neighbor's favorite campground - so close to home - but last time he was there his dog broke his collar and chased a deer, up towards the office. They made him pack out and leave right away, no warning. A couple I met on the way to Blue Ridge said they were at McKinney and out on their scooters, which are street legal throughout GA, and were told they couldn't ride them because they were "like golf carts". They have two dogs, a friend of theirs came to visit just for a few minutes to borrow their kayak and was denied entrance because he had his dog with them and that would have made 3 dogs...for a few minutes. And don't waste your time pre-registering, they will never glance at your registration printout. We're booked at our favorite site there later this year, but now that I know we can be kicked out for the slightest infraction with no warning I guess I'll need to change our plans. Very sad, and I will contact the Corps of Engineers folks to register our dissatisfaction. - Gerald Tripp

This is a very nice campground with privacy between the rather spacious sites. I really didn't see any really bad sites. On the weekend the lake get noisy and busy with PWCs and boats. The roads and site pads are paved, with pea rock at each campsite which really helps with keeping the camp area clean from dirt and mud if it rains. The bath houses are small, but clean. TV stations are plenty coming out of Atlanta, but could not get the Satellite Dish to pick up a signal due to the tree cover. I really didn't see any really bad sites. Park staff can be a bit rude and very strict in rule enforcement. Deer were seen in and around the campground. Boat/ pontoon rental is available within 5 miles at one of the marinas in the area. - flourpedal
