Come Celebrate with us the AOC Annual Picnic overlooking lovely Lake Allatoona!

Lots of fun activities are planned, and we're still coming up with more great ideas.  We've reserved a shady lakefront picnic shelter and its adjoining large grassy recreation area.

We'll have food, hot off the grill!
Please bring your own cup to drink from. This will help us to be green and cut down on paper goods 

Tons of fun organized GAMES!  
Tug- o'-War, No-Hands Volleyball Race, Egg Toss for Distance, Scavenger Hunt, & Balloon Busting Race.
Sign up for specific games when you check in at the Picnic.
 - Supervised by Games Master Charlie Cottingham
He'll need a few volunteers.

Enjoy these other "play-'em-yourself" games: Volleyball, Badminton, & Frisbee Golf


 We are looking to have a great time this year, so come in your best spirits!

How to Get There:
Event Directions:

Take I-75 North to exit 285 Red Top Mtn Road. Take a right at the top of the ramp and go 1 mile to reach the park. You will cross over a bridge and take your first right into our area. if parking is full here go another 50 yards and park on the left in the overflow parking area.

All state parks have a $5 per vehicle charge for parking. With Red Top Mtn the actual place you pay is inside the park, NOT at the entrance. When you arrive please drive past the AOC area and the overflow parking on the left. take your next left, you will see the parking booth ahead. Pay for your vehicle and then come back and park. Because of this fee the AOC encourages everyone to find someone to carpool with.


Please make payment by April 30th.  After the cut off date of April 30th, you will be moved to the waitlist.
