About Galts Ferry Park
Located on the South side of Allatoona, Galt's Ferry Park is a beautiful spot to enjoy the Lake with a swimming beach, playground, boat ramp, and restrooms. No pets or alcohol allowed. This park requires a $5 parking fee and/or a $5 launch fee for launching boats.
Samples are collected by trained CRBI Swim Guide staff weekly (each Thursday) from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Results are analyzed and published each Friday here and at coosa.org.
A test does not meet water quality standards when a presumptive E. coli level has an EPA Beach Action Value higher than 235 MPN/100ml. At this level, EPA estimates that more than 8 out of 1000 swimmers could become ill.
