The Coosawattee River Resort is located just a few miles outside of Ellijay and East Ellijay, Georgia in the beautiful North Georgia mountains only a short drive from Atlanta, GA, Chattanooga, TN and Murphy, NC. Here you can experience all of the beauty of all four seasons, each with its own personality and weather.
The Coosawattee River Resort is a 5,500 + acre development consisting of more than 7,000 individual, privately owned lots divided by 12 miles of the beautiful Coosawattee River. The Coosawattee River is formed where the Ellijay and Cartecay River meet and then travels for six or seven miles where it becomes Carter’s Lake, a gorgeous recreational lake formed by the Corps of Engineers. This area is home to wildlife of all descriptions – deer, wild turkeys, raccoons, bears, eagles, hawks and more, along with our stocked fishing pond for year around enjoyment.
We have over 300 miles of paved and gravel roads that can take you from urban congestion to primitive wilderness in minutes. Inside our boundaries you will find breathtaking views, noisy river lots, beautiful amenities, relaxing parks and camping sites and much, much more.
