My favorite lake out of our three sites was Allatoona. It was practically in our backyard, and we walked to it on several occasions to go swimming, set off fireworks or watch the sun set. It was the lake that we used most often to go for our personal use, and on several occasions we traveled to some of the parks closest to us to have group barbecues/swimming outings. It is a beautiful lake that mostly locals use regularly, and you can tell that they really care about it. The rangers at Allatoona were all very friendly and accommodating, and they seemed to have a heightened sense of community involvement. I also thought the areas surrounding Allatoona were very beautiful.
