Lake Allatoona is located closest to Atlanta, Georgia but touches Cherokee County and small parts of Bartow County and Cobb County. It is a man made reservoir that drains water from 1,100 square miles of surrounding land. It’s home to several species of fish making it one of the best fishing destinations! It is especially known for the plentiful variety of striped bass, white bass, and spotted bass. That is why the Annual 2015 Bassmaster Classic was held this past February at a nearby lake, Lake Hartwell.
When you’re not fishing there are plenty of other activities available to try! Camping is a big recreational activity at Lake Allatoona! The Corps of Engineers manage the lake, the land and the area surrounding it, including several campgrounds and boat ramps.
