Keep Summer Cool at Lake Chatuge

Our star attraction is sparkling Lake Chatuge, surrounded by beautiful mountain ranges and rippling with summer fun. It’s the perfect waterway for all adventurers. Our lake is known as a haven for bass fishers, with largemouth, spotted, striped and hybrid bass. Whether you’re a skilled and serious angler, or you’re casting your first line, our plentiful fishing opportunities will leave you hooked. Our marinas also offer plentiful boat, paddleboard and other watercraft rentals, perfect for enjoying a day on our lake. Enjoy high-speed thrills by wakeboarding or water skiing across our pristine waters, or take a more leisurely route with a relaxing paddleboard or kayak adventure through our naturally made coves and inlets. Nothing will cool you off quite like taking a dip and making a splash on Lake Chatuge!

Snap the Perfect Scenic Selfie
No family vacation is complete without snapping that beautiful family photo! Our many hiking trails and overlooks provide the perfect backdrop for getting that perfect shot that will hang in your hallways and on grandma’s fridge for years to come. For an easy adventure with stunning payoff, explore Bell Mountain! A paved road winds its way up most of this mountainside. Here, you’ll find rock formations covered in spray paint art, offering a unique backdrop for a few quick photos. For those really wanting that money shot, follow the sets of stairs to reach the mountain’s peak and snap your selfie with a view of the entirety of Lake Chatuge! Another scenic spot easily accessible for the whole family is Cupid Falls. Located near the Young Harris College campus, a short, easy hike leads you directly to this hidden gem of a waterfall. Splash in the shallow, cool waters that surround and get that Instagram-worthy selfie! We’ve also put together a full guide to all family-friendly hikes for those who want to explore more of our natural wonderland.
