Majestic, Idyllic

Lake Chatuge

Where's Lake Chatuge? At the top of Georgia, north of Brasstown Bald,

the highest point in the state, Lake Chatuge reflects mountain views in every direction.

The state line gives both Towns County in Georgia and Clay County in North Carolina a share of the 7,500-acre TVA lake edged by national forests, waterfront homes, recreation areas, and several marinas. Chatuge was created with a dam in 1942 that flooded a section of the Hiwassee River valley passing through both counties.

A strand of over twenty Georgia Mountain lakes is tucked between ridges, including Georgia Power’s Lake Burton, nearby Lake Seed, and Lake Rabun from the early 1900s, as well as TVA reservoirs at Lake Blue Ridge, Lake Nottely, and Lake Chatuge.
