The restaurant inside the Lodge offer really great food! We really enjoy it every time that we go there. Their seafood buffet on Fridays is delicious as well as their Surf & Turf buffet on Saturdays......from crablegs to carved prime rib and a lot of other things....all you can eat. Well worth the money! We will be going back.
We didn't know what to expect when we got there because we couldn't find any photo's or reviews online. We decided to give it a try because it was our anniversary and they were having a Primitive Arts and Crafts Show that weekend. When we arrived the first thing I noticed was how clean the park was and how big. The park offers picnicing, swimming, miniature golf, fishing, hiking, a playground and a marina. We ventured on to the lodge after riding around the park for a bit, when we saw the lodge it was very nice. It was secluded away from all the other activities and had trails to walk right across the parking lot from your room. I went inside and checked in we were a bit earlier than the 4:00p.m. check in time but they just smiled and checked us right in. The staff was very friendly and the lobby very spacious and decorated beautifully. They also have there own resturant on the premises but to me it was a bit too pricey Friday night's seafood buffet was $16.95 per person and so was Saturday nights BBQ buffet. My husband and I dove into Marrietta on Friday night for supper and drove into Cartersville Saturday night for supper, so you do have LOTS of other options on dining. We went to our room and got settled in I culdn't believe how nice the room was and it was emaculatly clean. Then I tested out the bed....OH MY GOSH these were the most comfortable beds I have ever incountered in a hotel of any kind they just formed to fit your body. I had 2 of the best nights sleep. On Saturday I walked down to the Primitive Arts and Crafts festival it was small and it wasn't what I thought it would be and it didn't really even hold up to their description of the events and some of the volunteers weren't friendly for ex. they stated in the ads there would be farm animals there was 1 chicken and 1 sheep, they stated there would be food well they were cooking apple cobblers over open fires but you couldn't have any you couldn't even buy any, anyway I thought it was kinda a bust but I just went back up to the lodge and we enjoyed all the other things the park had to enjoy I certainly won't hold this against the park.I would and definatly will recommend this lodge to all of my family and friends for there weekend getaways!!!!
Was here Memorial weekend.....We were shafted and I emailed the park on issue etc never got a call. First come First serve basis had I known I would have come 2 hrs earlier for camp site. We had trouble w/ campers next to us...... and site guy made it worse then he got quite was in wrong. We were on a double site. The host told me the campsite # the last on the lake. But its suppose to be double rented by a group that is together so that was horrible for us and camper next to us. Our site had water n elec. and we had the better bath house. There are some things to do in this park. But its an ave park, mostly lake for the big boaters AND I HAVE SEEN BETTER STATE PARKS LIKE STN MTN.One part of lake to fish, put boat in, and its non beach area people get in NO bathrooms that needs to CHANGE!( Vogel is not one of your better either, just for a quick day thats it or to stay while viewing area at a cheap price.

There are a number of hiking trails, Lake Allatoona, a beach area, playground, campground, boat ramps, picnic shelters. a handicap accessible trail, group sheltetrs. lodge rooms and more. The staff and park volunteers offer a wide variety of programs for the public. You can watch a blacksmith at work, experience the life of pioneers,take a guided night hike,learn about snakes and other wildlife, listen to Bluegrass music, go on a hayride, swim, fish, and so much more. It will cost you $3 parking but where else can you do so much for so little?
Red Top Mountain State Park offers a fantastic location for camping with the whole family. The best part about Red Top and what sets it apart from other destinations, is the entertainment available while you're camping. You don't even have to leave the park to keep the whole family entertained!
They start the weekend with a night hike on Friday nights. Saturday's feature Snake Encounters, pioneer demonstrations at their cabin and mountain music in the evenings. Sundays often include a hayride with campfire, marshmallows and stories!
This is, by far, the single shining star in the state park system. Well worth the camping fees or even just a day visit which is only three bucks!
