The Coosawattee 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.
The resort is expansive with approximately 300 miles of roads, six river parks, The Water Tower Conference Center, The Recreation Center, and The Villas at Coosawattee.
