Area Attractions 

 

 
Fishing on the Coosawattee River - The fishing is great -  with spotted, redeye, and rock bass along with bluegill, redbreast, and tons of catfish, the trick is slowing down long enough to catch them, as the water flows very quickly through numerous rapids and rock gardens.  

Fishing on Carter's Lake - a 3230 acre reservoir located between Calhoun and Ellijay on the Coosawattee River

 

Hiking Trails in the Ellijay Area - There are several great hiking trails in the Ellijay area including the Appalachian Trail  at Springer Mountain, the Bartram Trail, the Big Rock Nature Trail and the Amicalola Falls Trail.

Blue Ridge Scenic Railway - The train route consists of a 26-mile round trip through historic Murphy Junction along the beautiful Toccoa River. This railroad was built over 100 years ago and is the only mainline railroad excursion service based in Georgia. 

Carter's Lake - Formed from the bed of the Coosawattee River between Ellijay and Carters, Georgia, this 3,000+ acre lake offers recreational opportunities for fishermen, hunters, campers, boatsmen, bikers, and hikers. Long before the creation of Carters Lake, this portion of the Coosawattee was known as one of the best whitewater rapids in the eastern United States.
Coosawattee River Resort - The Coosawattee River Resort is a 10,000 + acre development consisting of more than 6,500 individual, privately owned lots divided by five miles of the beautiful Coosawattee River. 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
Amicalola Falls - Amicalola, a Cherokee Indian word meaning tumbling waters, is an appropriate name for these 729-foot falls - the tallest east of the Mississippi River. An eight-mile approach trail leads from the park to Springer Mountain, the southern end of the 2,135-mile Appalachian Trail.
Tennessee Aquarium - The Tennessee Aquarium takes visitors from the mountains to the sea, and that adventure continues in the new Ocean Journey building. Explore a Tropical Cove, glide through a Butterfly Garden and dive into a Secret Reef.
