Fishing Pond

For a peaceful experience in the great outdoors, we recommend visiting Beaver Lake within the Coosawattee River Resort. This well-stocked, catch-and-release fishing pond is serene and welcoming to anglers ready to cast a line (no fishing license required for cabin guests).

It’s also a lovely spot to sit on a boulder, eat a picnic lunch, and watch the water ripples, a flock of geese, and adorable ducks.

Fireplace Room

Take a break from the great outdoors and head inside for a spell at the Fireplace Room. This rentable space within Coosawatee River Resort is great for private parties or group meetings. To reserve your slot, call the Reservations Office at 706.640.4038.

Wahoo! Splashing at a swimming pool in the summertime is always a blast. Within this Ellijay, GA, resort, you’ll have 2 outdoor options: a family pool and a serene pool. And don’t forget the heated indoor pool at the rec center!

  • Riverside Pool is the largest swimming pool at Coosawattee River Resort, and it even features a kiddy pool for the little ones. It’s a great pool area for families. There are also picnic tables, and it’s just across the suspension bridge from Fish Trap Park.
