About Carters Lake

Small but Spectacular in the North Georgia Mountains

With sparkling waters and stunning views, Carters Lake is located in the Blue Ridge Mountains of north Georgia.

 

It covers about 3,200 acres, with 62 miles of often steep, undeveloped shoreline in Gilmer and Murray counties.

 

Carters Lake is about a two-hour drive from Atlanta, between the towns of Calhoun and Ellijay.

 

Georgia's Deepest Lake

Created by Carters Dam, the tallest earthen dam east of the Mississippi, Carters Lake is the deepest of Georgia's reservoir lakes, more than 450 feet deep in many places, and also one of the newest, created in 1977. It is filled by the Coosawattee River.

 

Public Lake Exclusively for Recreation

Carters Lake is popular for camping, fishing, picnicking, boating, mountain biking and hunting.

 

Spotted bass are dominant, but there are strong populations of striped, largemouth, hybrid and walleye bass, as well as catfish and crappie.

 

The US Corps of Engineers operates four camp grounds, four boat ramps, a beach, several picnic areas and playgrounds around the lake.

 

They have a Visitors Center with small museum and nature trail.

 

There are several hiking trails.
