Red Top Mountain State Park is named for the soil's rich red color caused by high iron-ore content. This mountain was once an important mining area and a historically significant battlefield. The park maintains Allatoona Pass Battlefield for the public.
This park is popular as it sits on Lake Allatoona and is ideal for swimming, water skiing and fishing. There are also 15 miles of trails winding through the forest. Click here for more information about the trails on my Hike and Bike Trails website.
There are two boat launching ramps and a privately operated marina. A lakeside beach offers swimming with a miniature golf course nearby. There are 18 cottages and one yurt for rent.
We camped here in August 2018 in our Travato Van and the park was very quiet due to school starting. The sites sit up from the water but the woods are welcome shade. The road through the campground is very narrow and curvy. There is one section just for big rigs with pull-through sites.
DIRECTIONS FROM ATLANTA:
I-75 N to exit 285 (Red top Mountain Road)
Turn right at the end of the ramp and travel 1.8 miles to the Visitor Center.
