Lake Chatuge is an area of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Northeastern Georgia, bordered on the north by North Carolina. It surrounds and takes its name from the TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority) electric generation reservior located here. This area became a resort destination soon after the lake was constructed and is now one of the fastest-growing areas of the region.
