Stayed one night on my way back to Savannah.....reservation process was smooth and was given a site number on reservation number 11. When we arrived on a Sunday at about 1500 MWR staff was on hand and gave me all the info I needed, process was quick and easy. WIFI worked well. I was told rental pontoon boats and fuel would be available in a couple of weeks and there were covered slips for rent on long term basis! Roads could use a little help narrow and curvy but I didn’t really have any problem getting in and out of heavily wooded site although it was a little narrow on my paved site. We had a great view of the lake and look forward to returning! Wish it had full hook-ups and showers and bathroom needed cleaning!
Great place, this was my second visit in the motorhome and wanted to add that since falling under Kingsbay the property is looking good and you can tell they have gotten funding to spruce this place up. I have a 38 foot class A and there are about 5 sites I can back into. Bathhouse looks great and was nice and warm. The extra speed bumps added going past the office are overkill and pretty rough on the airbags no matter how slow you go. Will be back.
Talk about luck, I was looking for a place to stay overnight close to the Allatoona Pass Battlefield site, and this place popped up -- only 2 miles away. We stayed in one of their two bedroom cabins; all the comforts of home at a great price. Excellent dining in Acworth, GA only 3 or 4 miles away. We couldn't have been any happier.
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!
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.
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 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.
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.
