The resort offers amazing beauty. The CoosawatteeRiverflows through the 10,000 + acre development consisting of more than 6,000 individual, privately owned lots. Divided by five miles of the beautiful CoosawatteeRiverwhere you can enjoy tubing, canoeing, fly-fishing and kayaking. The formation of the Coosawattee is where the Ellijay and Cartecay River meet then continues to flow about 7 miles where it feeds into Carter's Lake which is one of North Georgia's best kept secrets....well almost.
The beauty of the lake is breathe-taking. It is over 62 miles of unsurpassed beauty. Over 3,200 acres with hiking, camping, RV camping, beach, fishing, boating, skiing, mountain biking and hunting. Remember to take a drive by the CartersLakeDam. It is the tallest earthen dam east of the Mississippi River. There is a special park to enjoy family picnics and gatherings. The kids will love the park like setting with swing sets and slides. Keep in mind safety while swimming at CartersLake. It is more than 450 feet deep.
