Acworth campers are on the doorstep of the Red Top Mountain State Park, which occupies a wooded peninsula that juts into Lake Allatoona. There are more than 15 miles of hiking trails to explore (including one that’s accessible to strollers and wheelchairs), with the four-mile Iron Hill Trail offering impressive views across the lake.
