I checked out their website and downloaded their brochure. First time I've seen a campground make a virtue of having no tree cover for the campsites (i.e. "Most sites are in the open, with lots of lush, green grass underfoot," as their web page says) Maybe it's due to growing up in the stark terrain of southwest Oklahoma, where tree cover is hard to come by and the sun is merciless, but I definitely prefer shady campsites!

Still, it does look like a great place to hold a rally, given the facilities.

I wonder why those two COE campgrounds mentioned above (McKinney and Victoria) aren't listed on uscampgrounds.info? Unless I'm missing something. Are they relatively newer?

We stayed at our first COE campground last May (I think it was in northern Virginia, close to I-77, and absolutely loved it! And, the price was right, used the senior pass for 1/2 price!

Everyone has a preferance on shade/no shade. For me, I like open area parking. Too much stuff can fall out of trees, like limbs, sap, bird droppings, even the whole darn tree. We are fortunate to have awnings all the way around to help keep things cooler.

Historically Airstream rallys were held in large, open areas, perhaps contributing to the original design of "The Cove". Regardless, it is a great park and makes a good base camp from which to explore our SC mountain area.

Not that new. Allatoona Lake was in full operation in 1950, and the various Corps campgrounds and other parks around the lake collectively see about 6 million visitors per year, making it one of the most-visited lakes in the US.
