About Beach at Red Top Mountain
Located in the beautiful Red Top Mountain State Park, the Beach at Red Top Mountain is a popular swimming spot on Allatoona just outside of Cartersville. Visitors can also enjoy camping, hiking trails, and several playgrounds. Visitors must have an annual GA State Park ParkPass or pay a $5 daily parking fee.
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.
