“Lakeside Beach in Chatsworth!”
A scenic drive on Hwy. 52 near the Cohutta Wilderness leads visitors to this mountain getaway. Hikers, mountain bikers and horseback riders will find some of the most beautiful trails in Georgia, winding through hardwood forest and blueberry thickets, crossing streams and circling a pretty lake. Hikers can also explore a stone fire tower built by the Civilian Conservation Corps and an ancient rock wall which stand on the highest point of the mountain. The mysterious 855-foot-long wall is thought to have been built by early Indians as fortification against more hostile Indians or for ancient ceremonies. During summer, visitors can cool off on a lakeside beach, while stables offer guided horseback rides and stall rental throughout the year. Park guests may stay overnight in fully equipped cottages, a campground or backpacking campsites.
It was so fun staying here! There are really beautiful views along the road and the cabin we stayed in was so cozy, and the people working were friendly :)
The park is beautiful. There are many biking and hiking trails, a great swimming area and historical sites. We found it hard to maneuver our 30' trailer along the very narrow campground roads with tight turns and huge trees at the very edge. But we had a lakeside spot that was awesome. I was surprised see a cable tv terminal but the signal quality was so poor we turned it off.
