The river begins at the confluence of the Ellijay and Cartecay rivers in the city of Ellijay in central Gilmer County. The river flows west through the foothills in the North Georgia mountains region and is a tributary of the Oostanaula River (which it turn is a tributary of the Coosa River). Primary tributaries of the Cooswattee River include Mountaintown Creek, Tails Creek, Cole Creek, Goble Branch, Harris Creek, Camp Branch, Lewis Branch, Woodring Branch, Fisher Creek, Talking Rock Creek, Willbanks Branch, Mineral Springs Branch, Rock Springs Branch, Sugar Branch, Duke Creek, Noblet Creek, Dry Creek, Salacoa Creek, Vanns Creek, and Crane Eater Creek

In Murray County, the river is impounded by Carters Dam, forming Carters Lake (which is located mostly in Gilmer County). Completed in 1977, Carters Dam is the tallest earthen dam east of the Mississippi River.[3] The Coosawattee river leaves the dam flowing west (directly into the Reregulation Reservoir) and briefly serves as the Murray-Gordon County line before entering Gordon County. Near New Echota, the Coosawattee meets the Conasauga River.[4]

This area was the center of Cherokee territory in north Georgia and southern Tennessee. In the early 1820s, they made New Echota their capital.

James Dickey used the Coosawattee River as the basis for his fictional "Cahulawassee River" in the novel, Deliverance (which was adapted into the 1972 feature film of the same name).
