This beautiful location is NOT for large RV's. We have a 36 ft. Winnebago motorhome and it was nearly impossible to get into the site. Even worse was trying to get out. Derek, one of the office staff was very helpful in finding us another place to camp locally. The road into the park is narrow, winding and the two railroad crossings will test the strength of your tow hitch as it drags the ground. Would that I had been told when I made the reservation that the RV was too large! It would have saved a lot of aggravation.
J.A. left this review using the Directory software: - Excellent place. Very quiet except for highway sounds. The people were exceptionally friendly. I would love to return in the summer I'm sure it is beautiful.
I first stayed at the Navy Lakeside in a cabin back in December 1989. Now that I have an RV, I try and stay at least 3 times a year. The staff do go out of their way to accomodate your needs. Quaint and quiet, it is a perfect vacation spot with much to do on the lake. Some sites are small but I have not had a problem with my 32' class C. Highly recommend giving it a try!

C.W. left this review using the Directory software: - This is a well kept secret in the Atlanta area. Great facility and super nice staff. Campground is wooded with easy access to sites. Saw at least one pull thru site. Facility is right on Lake Allatoona. Lovely beach.

Great campground, Great Staff. Some RV sites are testy for larger RV' but there is ample help for getting in. Our youngest son lives in the area and the Lake is just beautiful and only a short drive to Atlanta. So quiet and peaceful. Easy access to the lake and beach and other activities. Only a few RV sites but all the cabins have great lake viewing morn, noon and evening. Only draw back I saw was to many permanents living there. Well kept secret there among Lake Alatonna, Ga.

Memorial Day Weekend 2011
My family and I spent Memorial Day Weekend at the Navy Site, we had a blast. Prices were very reasonable, and the staff was supper great. Never before in my life have I met folks that were that happy to help.

J.W. left this review using the Directory software: Visited November 22-23, 2010 while traveling from FL to TN. Convenient location to I-75 but the road is narrow and with lots of curves and RR crossings. Directions excellent. Very quite on a Weekday in November. Looks like 8 or 10 of the 12 campsites are occupied by long term campers. Will stop again if traveling in the area. Tony was very helpful making reservations and at check-in. Great view of lake. Will consider staying longer on next trip through the Atlanta area.

We live in Florida and my sister lives in NC...we met at Lake Allatoona Landing to camp and spend some time together....We found the Navy Facility after being at the Landing for a couple of days...Definitely much better. The price was less than half and much more private. Tony was a peach and helpful in many ways. We rented a boat and Joyce was especially helpful there. We plan on going again soon. We had a great time. Very beautiful there.

Beautiful view of the lake and sites are in the woods setting. One draw back, no sewer and at this time there is only one bathroom available. Walk to bathroom (up hill) is not bad, unless it is raining and you have any kind of problems with leg. They are working on all the cabins. The people are fantastic and very helpful. They did pass on info about the Army site which is scheduled to close. Don't expect the Navy to take it over - too expensive and too much work.
I'm a motorcycle camper so my needs and expectations are slightly different from car campers and vastly different from RV'ers and cabin campers. My report is based on my motocamping experience. The trail that leads to the tent sites is gravel and that includes the terrible gravel downhill that leads to the gravel parking area where campers are to park their vehicles/motorcycles. There is no parking at the actual tent sites. Once getting past the gravel issues the sites themselves are pleasant enough. Grassy with trees and a clear view to the lake. None of the tent sites have water or electricity and the restrooms are a good walk away so be prepared for an annoying walk when the urge to tinkle hits you in the middle of the night. No..no peeing next to the tree that's next to your tent. Very rude and nasty. So, as you can tell my experience with the World Famous Navy Site wasn't so world famous for me. I believe that they are also over priced since the sites are without electric or water, you have to park your vehicle in the parking area and haul your stuff to your site and of course the distance to the toilet/shower house is unreasonable. For some unknown reason they also will not rent one of their RV sites to tent campers. Even if we are willing to pay the RV site fee. Very strange. For me the best part was not having to obligate myself to a 2 night stay, even on weekends so that is a good thing.

I saw it was rated as Big-Rig unfriendly, but I got my 36' MH in with no problems! The camp was quiet, clean and Tony, the manager couldn't have been more help! The camp was crowded being a holiday weekend, but still, nestled in the woods with a great view of the lake, it couldn't have been a better weekend. And, the showers and restrooms were very clean and even with all the people using the campground during the day it was just fantastic. We were going to sight see a bit, but honestly, with the campground so nice - we never got around to it.

T.H. left this review using the Directory software: I enjoyed my stay the lake is wonderful I was at only camp site next to lake with full hookups but no cable very pleasant. You'll like this camp it is a wonderful place to stay and visit while in Atlanta area.
July 2004 to Current
This place is like no other place i had the pleasure of visiting, it has all the things you need for a day to hang out with friends and family or a place to bring your r/v or camper for a month get away or just grab one of their cabins, i have had the pleasure of knowing the staff at this facility for going on almost 5 years and since the first week it is like they have become family, i am going to be leaving the area soon and am going to miss this place, but knowing the people that work there it will only stay the same or improve on its already amazing lineage, get to know the people there they are great people, the security/ park manager Joe Collard lives on site and is always willing to help visitors in any way possible, tell them Billy sent ya.

Arrived after hours, staff was your helpful with instructions over the phone. I have a 28 ft motorhome which made access very easy for me. I would not suggest a larger camper or motorhome because most of the sites can not accommodate them. The only bad think was no sewer at each site. Having my pet was great. Customer service by the office staff was great.
I read the reviews and almost didn't stop. Thankfully we decided to give it a try. The people couldn't have been friendlier, the site couldn't have been better (unless there was some water in the lake), the clubhouse was clean, well designed and well stocked. And the showers were near fantastic--plenty of water pressure and very good shower heads. I had NO TROUBLE negotiating the hilly and tight roads in my 35-foot motorhome towing a minivan. The only downers were the lack of on-site sewer and the road and railroad noise that were nearly constant (the campground is adjacent to I-75 with a main railroad track in between). I had a couple of minor complaints that I voiced to the manager and he took care of them IMMEDIATELY. We liked it so much that we stayed four extra days and left Georgia during a blizzard (right, snow, a near white out at some points along the road). We are fulltimers and appreciate a place that makes an effort to make you feel comfortable--we were so comfortable we felt like family (kissin cousins, not feuding families). Give this place a try.
The campsite is located on the lake. It is surrounded by lots of trees, which the camp site is on the curvy hill. The road is very narrow, it is hard to get around if you have a big RV. However, the staff is very nice and helpfull.
Attempted to stay here after the "No Pets" at the Army Campground but the roads were nearly impossible to traverse with our motorhome and the sites were impossible with a 40' rig. Had to leave and go elsewhere.
