Coosawattee River Resort

Meandering through East and West Ellijay you’ll find the Coosawattee River. What was once an intense 50 mile river that inspired James Dickey to write the 1970 novel “Deliverance”, has since been tamed by the construction of Carters Lake. Back in the day, the Coosawatee River was raging with spectacular class 4 rapids that rivaled those of the Chattooga River. Today, you can enjoy a comfortable float with only class 1 and 2 rapids. Amazingly enough after the river passes through Ellijay it continues on converging into the Conasauga River, the Oostanaula River, and finally the Tallapoosa River, before flowing into the Gulf of Mexico. Most notably in Ellijay, a large land development, The Coosawattee River Resort, planned its footprint around the beautiful Coosawattee River. Come out and explore the shoreline, fish from its banks, and float down her current!

Imagine social dynamics where all you have to worry about is what’s on the surface. That would be – say it slowly – A.W.E.S.O.M.E.!
While we usually think of hot summer days as the perfect time to enjoy the lake, it can actually be enjoyed year-round. Here are our Top 7 activities that you can enjoy lakeside.
Fishing
As with everything lake-related there are at least two functions related to every activity.  Fishing, for example, is also sunbathing.
That’s because even if you find fish through echo-location or triangulation or astrological charts, there’s no guarantee that once you put a wormed hook in front of them that they’ll eat. Pl? ...
