Andy's Trout Farm and Cabins

14 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents200 acres · Otto, NC
Andy's Trout Farm opened to the public in 1965.  It was founded and developed by Andy and Hazel Cope, with some help from their family.  In the late 1950's, while Andy was operating a service station in Dillard, GA, many travelers inquired about places to fish and camp.  The Copes used some mountain land, which they owned in the Betty's Creek Community, to develop Betty's Creek Recreation Area!  Later, they changed the name to Andy's Trout Farm and built rental cabins along the stream. They had found the ideal spot to raise rainbow trout . The cold mountain stream flowing from the mountains of North Carolina into Betty's Creek provided the water needed. It took the family several months to get a hatchery in operation for hatching, and ponds built for growing the trout. They began running the fish farm and selling trout that were caught from the catch-out ponds. They dressed the catch and even had a restaurant across the road from the fishing office! In 1968 Andy and Hazel Cope were granted the "Farm Family of the Year Awards"-  in both North Carolina and Georgia!

Roamstead

69 sites · Lodging6 acres · Cosby, TN
Roamstead was born on a family RV trip across the country. Our founders noticed their glamorous plans often ended in glorified parking lots or dirty campgrounds without amenities or thought regarding design. Alongside that, many campgrounds seemed unapproachable to those who hadn’t been before. A vision was born to reinvent 'roughing it' in a way that could welcome all adventurers to experience the magic of the great outdoors. We believe the beauty of nature should be experienced by everyone. It's good for your health, and the more we connect with and learn about the outdoors, the more we'll feel compelled to protect it. Whether you've been camping all your life or this would be your first trip, we're here for you. We aim to build a bridge (you know, a metaphorical one) to the great outdoors, where all adventures can truly feel welcome. Roamstead is committed to making our outdoor spaces accessible to everyone. At our Smoky Mountains location, we're partnering with Friends of the Smokies to do just that. Friends assists the National Park Service in its mission to preserve and protect the Great Smoky Mountains National Park by raising funds and public awareness, and providing volunteers for needed projects. They restore trails, build handicap accessible access points, and provide urban youth educational opportunities in the park, to name just a few of their many projects. A dollar of each stay at Roamstead Smoky Mountains is donated back to Friends of the Smokies to help continue their mission.

Cabins in Allatoona Lake guide

With more than 12,000 surface acres and 270 miles of shoreline, Lake Allatoona is a water paradise. More than 20 public recreation areas with ramps and launches and eight commercial marinas offer easy boat access to the lake, while an abundance of shoreline fishing and jetties draw anglers to the well-stocked lake. Swimming, paddling, and other water sports are also popular. On land, visitors can go hiking, biking, wildlife spotting, and hunting through the surrounding rolling hills and thick hardwood forests. More than a dozen public and private campgrounds make it easy to stay around the lake, whether you prefer tent camping, RV camping, or cabins.

Where to Go

North Allatoona Lake

The US Army Corps of Engineers Upper Stamp Creek and McKaskey Creek campgrounds can be found near the central northern branches of Allatoona Lake, near Corbin. The two campgrounds are located near boat ramps and swimming beaches, and together offer 80 campsites for tents and RVs, with water and electric hookups, picnic tables and dump stations. Barstow County’s Gatewood Park also offers tent and RV sites, and includes a boat ramp, swim area, and picnic shelters.

Central Allatoona Lake

Just east of Cartersville, Red Top Mountain State Park is centrally located on a peninsula between two arms of the lake. The popular park offers more than 15 miles of hiking and biking trails, boat ramps and docks, playgrounds, picnic areas, and more than 100 options for staying overnight, including walk-in campsites, tent, trailer, and RV sites with electric hookups, cottages, and a yurt.

South Allatoona Lake

The southern branches of the lake have the most options for campers. The largest is the Corps of Engineer McKinney Campground, with 150 tent and RV sites, some lakefront. Nearby, the county-run Clark Creek North Campground offers all waterfront tent and RV sites, with a dock and swim beach, while Clark Creek South Campground has a boat launch. Several private campgrounds also include cabins and cottages. The Corps of Engineer operate the Old Highway 41#3 Campground, the southernmost of the lake campgrounds, near Acworth.

East Allatoona Lake

Three Corps of Engineer campgrounds let campers stay along the eastern shores of the lake, near Woodstock and Holly Springs. Sweetwater Campground, at the northern end, offers 150 tent and RV sites, including lakefront sites, while Victoria Campground and Payne Campground together offer more than 130 sites for tents and RVs. All campgrounds are located near docks and swimming beaches, and include fire rings, picnic areas, and dump stations.
