Part of the Nantahala National Forest, this recreational lake consists of 3,000 acres of open water in the midst of green mountain slopes, and is ideal for fishing, kayaking and canoeing.
We stopped at the public beach and had a wonderful swim. Lovely views, clear water, and to start with we were only people there. Note there is nowhere to refill water or get food at the beach, but there are picnic tables.

We had a girls weekend and did whitewater rafting, our guide Su was amazing! He went above and beyond to make our experience a great one. This is my third time with Carolina Outfitters and I am never disappointed with the service. They always exceed expectations!

Really neat marina, clean bathrooms, our boat was very clean & comfortable for the sunset cruise that lasted a couple of hours. We actually got to see a black bear cub along the bank of the lake while on the cruise.

Their new bathrooms were clean and tidy. We were greeted by Sue and TK - who eventually were our guides. Our ground school was quick and informative, I liked that they told me the equipment was theirs and I was not to touch it. We all were outfied with our gear, helmets, gloves, and harnesses. They would touch all of the equipment. Leave the latching and unlatching to them. Good advise. Leave the professionals to ensure that I am safe. A quick pickup truck ride up the hill, and we were quickly on the first zip line that was for practicing form and for brake practice. This is the first Zip line i had done where I controlled the speed. The course was interesting. There were some interesting zips. A bit of a disappointment was that the longest of the zips was early on in our tour. Other zip tours I have had kept all guests tethered at all times. I would like to suggest that the guides keep their guests attached or tethered at all times. It was not :unsafe" it just is good practice. We finished with a short trip back to the headquarters where we were allowed to go inverted.... that was a HOOT...! Good time had by all.... give them a try.... they are good people and run a safe place....

The Wildland Trekking Company provides exceptional hiking tours and backpacking trips in Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Our Great Smoky Mountains hiking tours range from day hikes to all-inclusive, multi-day backpacking trips. All trips include gear, meals, snacks and a professional Smoky Mountains hiking guide!
I recently took the inn-based tour of the Smoky Mountains with Nicole as our guide and I highly recommend Wildland Trekking and Nicole. Nicole organized the hikes, planned, carried, and prepared all of our lunches and then drove us from location to location. On our trip the weather was ever changing -- sunshine, pouring rain, and then snow, but Nicole handled it all with a smile and a can do attitude. Although the Smoky Mountains can certainly be hiked without a guide I can't see why you wouldn't want one. We were completely pampered and catered to as we went from one end of the park to the other! Wildland Trekking is the way to go and if you can get Nicole as a guide -- WIN WIN!!

It's a fun drive but not if there's a car or motorcycle group on it that day. Too many need for Speed video game players and fast and furious movie fans want to try to drive like the professionals do and many learn the hard way that this is a road that demands caution, common sense and respect.
There are very few guardrails so if you go over it won't be fun.
There are several companies that take photos of cars on the road that you can purchase from their website of your car which is cool.

One may take a cable car ride into the depths of the Fontana Dam.
Very nice area, from the dam, visitor center, picnic areas and boat ramp. We had perfect weather to view this massive dam. It was impressive and big. The whole surrounding area was peaceful and relaxing. This would be a good place to have a picnic on the lake.

In the middle of a Valley this small town gallery and "Old School" is a unique way to see local artists ware. We happened to be there during the Spring Bluegrass Festival which turned out to be a small town gathering of talented local mountain musicians who belted out their versions of local bluegrass and showed their roots in music history of America. Very nice day and we will go again!

I love to go by this local farm and get produce when I am in the area. This time I found that they have added some locally sourced baked items. I bought 2 apple crumb pies made from apples from the orchard and they were excellent. Expect to pay more than you would at the grocery, but the quality and value is there!
