About Big Canoe®

Big Canoe® is a gated and planned residential community where deer frolic, wild turkey scramble through lush forests, birds sing in this Audubon sanctuary and residents think they live in heaven.

Encompassing over 7,500 acres, Big Canoe® is a North Georgia community nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Among its many beautiful features are seven soaring mountains, three sparkling lakes, numerous waterfalls, miles of hiking and biking trails, and abundant wildlife. This extraordinary lifestyle is located in Pickens and Dawson counties near the Appalachian Trail and Amicalola Falls. Big Canoe® is also near the Dawson National Forest, ensuring its pristine and natural surroundings. In addition, with elevations up to 3200 ft., Big Canoe® is a respite from the heat of the city.

With 30% of the land set aside as natural habitat and recreational areas, Big Canoe® is a paradise for hikers, fisherman, boaters, birdwatchers and folk who just know how to relax (or want to know).
