Cartersville is a long way from Atlanta. Does your interest truly lie in Atlanta or in the NW corner of GA?

What time of year will you be in the area?

There are a good number of campgrounds in the NW corner of GA but finding full hook-ups can be difficult. Closer into Atlanta on the I-75 corrodore there are some really nice state parks and corp of engineers camp grounds, again few full hook ups. Jumping over to GA-400 (also known as Hwy 19) and just north of the city, less than 30 miles, is Twin Lakes RV Park. They have full hook-ups. It used to be a country park but civilization has begun to encompass it.

Not all of these campgrounds that I hinted at are open year around. Need to know when you plan to visit.

jperry29,
Thanks for the information and I guess I left out some useful information that people might need to answer this.
We will be staying around Memorial Weekend. Cartersville is a way out, but it isn't too far for our meeting with family from Atlanta. We figured the closer we are to Atlanta over that holiday, the harder it will be to find a campground with larger sites for a family visit.

Memorial weekend, that makes a big difference. Regardless of where you want to camp you will need to get a reservation as soon as you can. There won't be a campground within 400 miles with an open spot.

But your options are better knowing this far in advance. I would suggest that you look at Red Top Mountain or McKinney camp ground. Red Top is a GA State Park and McKinney is a Corp of Engineers facility. Both are accessed from I-75. McKinney is down on the water of Lake Alatoona while Red Top is a small mountain with heavy woods near Lake Alatoona.

McKinney is typical Corp of Engineers, paved roads, concrete and some gravel pads, well maintained bathrooms and showers. Red Top also has has paved roads but the sights are large and widely spaced. In typical GA State park fashion the bathrooms and showers are not quite as nice as Corp of Engineers. The deer population is heavy, they will walk into your sight while you are sitting there. In fact the population is beyond the park's ability to support it and a private company is hired from time to time to come in and cull the heard.

I really appreciate all the information, it sounds like the corp campground would be the best. It looks like with the size of your rig, our 32' travel trailer w/slide should fit into the sites.
We normally stay either in the state parks or the corps parks, but if we could bother you again, is there a particular site or sites that you prefer.
We will have an elderly person along with us on this trip, is there any recommendations on a campground that would have full hookups. Just trying to look at all our options, especially since we have never been in this area.

McKinney is a nice park I would recommend site 120 or 128 if they are still available, both are large pull thrus and are quite near the potties. McKinney like most CoE parks in GA has small bathrooms through out the park, but only 1 or 2 shower houses.

jaycocampers, thanks for recommending the 120 or 128 sites. We were unable to get them so, we had to settle for #72, it looked to be long eough for our tt, and we have to hope that we have enough room to get our slide out.

Check out "Stone Mountain". They have an excellent campground, with full hookups. The are also part of the "Passport America" grop. close to Atlanta, but on the the East side.
