The Shaggy Goat Farm

1 site · Lodging17 acres · Waleska, GA
Are you interested in lots of R & R with some peaceful hammock time? This is the place for you! Are you interested in starting a hobby farm or homestead? This is the place for you! Are you interested in learning a bit about goats, chickens, bees, or gardening? This is the place for you! Are you interested in biking & hiking? This is the place for you! Are you interested in stars & an endless night sky? This is the place for you! Are you interested in unplugging & just living... Are you interested in reliable cell service or wifi? This is not the place for you! Our wi-fi usually/sometimes works and most cell phones will work if you walk up the driveway and down the road a bit. Some people might think of that as a negative. We think of it as a positive! Your peace and entertainment can come from our massive book collection, our indoor games and puzzles, our outdoor games such as horseshoes, corn-hole, Bocce, badminton, or just swinging in the hammock and watching the chickens wander around. Are you interested in a pristine farm that looks like it could be a magazine? This is not the place for you! On certain days it looks amazing - other times not so much. It is awesome and fun but a work in progress (even after 20 years) and we usually have a ton of interesting projects going on. Do you want to always have all aspects of this farm available at ALL times? This is not the place for you! We have baby goats in Spring, fresh eggs available to you usually every day, at least one hive is usually available, fresh veggies usually May – October. However, is an organic farm, so we never quite know what to expect. Changes and new opportunities are always right around the corner! When you are asking about booking, I can let you know what is usually around at that time. If you are really hard-core there are always fun chores available to learn about (or help with) – mucking the barn (and composting), painting or fixing fences, chopping firewood, feeding and brushing the horse, goats, pig, dogs, planning garden, planting garden, weeding the garden, harvesting, canning, you can always put on a bee suit and check on the bees, etc. You can also bring a tent (or borrow ours) and use our 17 acres of woods and pastures as a campground. Camping on our property is amazing - the only decision you have to make is whether to stare into your campfire or stare up at the gorgeous starry sky. You can use the cottage for cooking and cleaning up.

Cabins in Allatoona Lake with swimming 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.
