Coopers Creek (variously known as Cooper’s Creek and Cooper Creek) is one of the most picturesque mountain streams in North Georgia.

It’s a favorite among fishermen and is one of the busiest places in the mountains on the opening day of trout season. The first time I ever went trout fishing was on Coopers Creek and the banks were full of tents crowded with eager anglers.

The creek follows Georgia Highway 60, one of the most beautiful drives in Georgia.

Though not in Suches proper, this store is nearby and has a Suches address. It’s now home to the Wildcat Country Store & Diner. Jeremy Burger writes: My great grandfather owned that store (Lester Tritt) prior to Carl and moved it from it’s original location to where it’s sits now. He also built the house across the street and my grandfather was born in it.
