Summer may be winding down, but there is still plenty of time to enjoy time on the lake, especially when you purchase a Cobb County home from Traton Homes at Great Oaks Estates. Nestled just minutes from the shores of lakes Allatoona and Acworth, residents of Great Oaks Estates have the opportunity to spend weekends and nights cooling off on the water.
Lakes Allatoona and Acworth offer a variety of outdoor activities, both on land and water. Here are some of the fun things you can enjoy before summer turns to fall:
Covering more than 12,000 acres and offering 270 miles of shoreline, Lake Allatoona is a popular spot for people looking to enjoy outdoor recreation. Lake Allatoona offers several boat ramps, both public and private, that can be used to access the water. Once out on the water, individuals can enjoy fishing, water skiing, jet skiing, tubing, wakeboarding and more. For those looking to stay on land, there are several parks located around the lake that offer picnic facilities, fishing access, playgrounds and swimming beaches. Families looking to spend a weekend under the stars have the opportunity to camp out along the shores of Lake Allatoona. Several campgrounds are located around the lake and are managed by the US Army Corp of Engineers.
Speaking of camping, residents who travel a little further north to Cartersville will find one of Georgia’s most popular state parks, Red Top Mountain State Park. In addition to camping, individuals can spend the night in the Red Top Mountain Lodge or rent one of the 18 cottages or cabins. At Red Top Mountain, visitors not only enjoy the lake, but the surrounding nature as they get some exercise on the hiking and mountain biking trails.
For residents looking to enjoy a peaceful lake outing, Lake Acworth is the perfect place to spend the weekend or an evening. This 260-acre man-made lake is located adjacent to Lake Allatoona, separated by a 1,500-foot long dam. Lake Acworth is a fisherman’s dream with 18 species of fish including:
- Largemouth Bass
- Redear Sunfish
- Black Crappie
- Gizzard Shad
- Common Carp
- White Crappie
- Spotted Bass
- Brown Bullhead
- Channel Catfish
- Yellow Perch

- Flathead Catfish
- Green Sunfish
- Golden Shiner
- Redbreast Sunfish
- Threadfin Shad
Fishing is allowed year round at Lake Acworth with parks around the lake open from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. Due to the size of Lake Acworth, boaters are limited to using electric motors or trolling motors when moving around the lake. No gas powered motors or personal watercrafts are allowed on the lake.
For those looking to enjoy some sand and water, Acworth Beach is located in Cauble Park on the north shore of Lake Acworth. The beach is open from Memorial Day to Labor Day weekend, so time is running out to enjoy a little beach time before the end of summer. In addition to the beach, Cauble Park offers boating, fishing, public restrooms, rental facilities, volleyball net, playgrounds, picnic areas and more.
