Red Top Mountain State Park

On the way to my sister’s in Atlanta, we stopped and toured through Red Top Mountain State Park. It is just north of Atlanta, but we had never been there before. You enter by driving a long bridge over Lake Altoona, a manmade lake created by the Altoona Dam on the Chattahoochee River.

These pictures were taken while standing in campsites.

Not a bad view from any of them. The place was all but deserted on this chilly Thursday afternoon.

Sadly, the lodge has closed as a funding cutback. The cabins were closed for remodeling but are expected to reopen in April. The bathrooms need remodeling, but were functional.

It is such a lovely place though that we would like to come back and tent camp.
