A Visit at Victoria Campground, Georgia

We stayed a few days at this Corp of Engineers campground on Lake Allatoona near Woodstock, Georgia. What a beautiful campground. We found the staff friendly and helpful. The campground has 72 sites for rv and tenting.  There are pull-throughs and back-ins. We didn't see a bad site among them.  All are under at least partial shade, most full shade. The sites are arranged for great privacy, easy in and out, paved, and level. Some sites are "water front", most not. The bathhouses are clean and well maintained with a small laundry. The campground was very quiet even though full.

 Because we reserved at the last minute we had to split our stay between two sites. The first was #55, a pull-through "on the water". It is paved, level, shaded, has a nice patio with fire pit, picnic table, and corralled. Like all the sites it has 50/30/20 amp service, and water.

 This is the view from the patio looking through the trees to the lake. The site has a lot of space.

The second site was a back-in. Paved, level, shaded and private with a patio. No view of the lake, but still a great site.

 There are two loops which provide for plenty of safe biking and walking.  This is  good since there are no trails in this park.  Gotta get that exercise. The park's features are boating, swimming, and fishing.

 Some views of the loop: 

Speaking of that lake view from Site #55.  Due to drought and draining of the lake to supply water to counties south of Atlanta the lake was well drawn down. You can see how much by the private docks on the left and their relation to the lake.

The draw down is apparent at the marina....

 ...and the beach area.

 At the marina/day park there is a playground and picnic tables and grills. 

An island in the channel.  The water is normally touching the trees. Someday it will be full again. I learned to water ski here 66 years ago. Hardly this low back then. df

 We didn't see much wildlife except for deer. Not only at the marina, but in the front yards of private homes while going through a nearby populated area.
