Red Top Mountain State Park / Cartersville, GA Area

We are in the planning stages of going to the Cartersville Georgia area in the first week of October 2013. My Nephew and his Wife are expecting their first at the end of August, so we would like to visit.
We are thinking of staying in the Cartersville area and possibly at Red Top Mountain State Park that is located on Allatoona Lake. We see that there are several COE parks in the area, with that some of them close at the beginning of September (strange?).

So if you have ever visited the area what are your recommendations?

Other then visiting with them we also plan on going to the Atlanta Aquarium.

Thanks in advance !

Red Top is VERY tight and unless you are lucky you will not find a site you can easily get on. I would suggest you plan to stau at McKinney COE. Lots of good sites just a little farther down the road from Cartersville. North of Cartersville there is a good park in Adairsville...Harvest Moon. Abit more expensive than COE but a nice stop over....about 60 miles north of Atlanta. Don't miss the western museum in Cartersville it is special.

Thanks for the COE information.

I was also looking at the KOA in the Cartersville Area since they have full hookups. We plan on staying a week, with my KOA discount it is around $35 a night with full hookups, cable and wifi.

We stay at the KOA in Cartersville as overnights on our way north in the spring and on the way south in the fall. It is an ok rv park, but the manager there seemed a bit odd. I see from RV Park Reviews :: Home that new management is on board.

Red Top is not, for us, a favorite - too tight, mainly. Some of our stays at COEs in the area have been spoiled by some urban "party hearty" crowds that seemed to take over sometimes. We stop at the Fruit Jar Cafe restaurant when we stay in Cartersville - the only place I have been with a bean bar.

We've stayed at Altoona landing quite a bit, before sister got a place that would accommodate us! Forget the cost.
