Potato Patch Road is the forest service road name that refers to what many call Conasauga Lake Road. It is part of the 70+ mile Cohutta Wilderness Loop. This portion of the route treats you to awe-inspiring older growth from below, and the tree tops close to your eye level. Further along the road, the underbrush becomes more dense and pronounced, hiding a few prime dispersed campsites. If dispersed camping is not your style, Lake Conasauga Campground is on the far west edge of the road and offers a few lovely sites nestled directly on the shore of the lake. Most of this road is closed from January - March.
