Acworth, GA 30102
Description: Just a little north of Atlanta off of I-75. All roads are paved and quite hilly, too hilly for a pedal bike. We were in site 50 (W/E 50A) next to Dan and Tricia and had plenty of space and privacy. Nice waterfront spot and we could have put the boat in here if we felt like it. Sites are paved although the pavement has seen it’s better days. Some sites have too steep of an incline for big rigs but most are fine. Near the town of Acworth for shopping and Red Top Mountain State Park for hiking. Since this is near Atlanta, there are many marinas on the lake and the water got busy on the weekend. Trains run quite often on the far side of the lake and if the wind is blowing right, they sound closer.
Activities: We enjoyed campfires and shared meals with D&T. Bojangles in Acworth hit the spot! D&T took their boat for a spin while we relaxed. I enjoyed a nice hike with them at Red Top Mountain State Park which is just down the road. We looked at the cg there but it is not big rig friendly. It rained some but I still managed a couple of morning walks. Deer were quite used to humans as well as the Mallards and Canada Geese.
Trash and Recycle: Several dumpsters throughout the cg and at the dump station. No recycle.
