We also offer boat storage, so you can fly in and not have to trailer
your boat up and down the road. We offer free airport shuttle service –
fly in for the weekend and we’ll shuttle you to Carter’s Lake.
Nestled at the southern end of the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Georgia,
Carter’s Lake offers a serene and restful respite from the hustle
and bustle. The dramatic landscape shifts from gentle rolling hills on the
southwest to steep mountains on the northeast near the dam.
The 60 miles of rugged shoreline and 3,220 acres of clear deep water make
it the smallest of Georgia’s Great Lakes. Laced with miles of hiking,
biking and nature trails, the area is filled with a wide variety of flora
Go back to nature at Carter’s Lake with a quiet, serene setting for
picnicking, fishing, water skiing or sight-seeing. Hike the nature trails,
challenge the popular mountain bike trails, or just spend the day on the
beach. The U.S. Army Corp of Engineers has developed many park areas around
the lake for day-use activities.
The area is also filled with Civil War history, Native American sites and
shopping from antiques to outlets. Fort Mountain State Park is also nearby
and two sate historic sites – the Chief Vann House and the New Echota
Cherokee Capital Historic Site near Calhoun – provide interesting
side trips. Read more about local
