Appletree Group Campground: Group Campground near Nantahala River

Appletree Group Campground is a great group campground in Nantahala National Forest near the Nantahala River. This close proximity makes it a great spot for paddling or rafting the river, being about 15 or 20 minutes from the Nantahala Outdoor Center. There are four group sites, two that can accommodate 25 people, and two that can accommodate 50 people. Site D is furthest from the entrance and provides the most privacy from the other sites, but all of them are pretty spacious. Additional amenities at the campground include potable water, flush toilets, picnic shelters, fire rings, and showers. The Nantahala River runs right by the campground, which provides an opportunity for fishing for wild trout (NC fishing regulations apply). And there are several trails running through the campground, including a portion of the 70-mile Bartram Trail, providing great hiking.

Very nice National Forest campground in close proximity to whitewater adventure on the Nantahala River.

Firepoint on vacationrentals.com: A cabin w/Best view of Fontana and the Smokies

This is a very peaceful and comfortable house with incredible views and all the amenities. We watched the "smoke" rise off of Fontana lake and Clingman's Dome every morning. They have a nice deck off the master, picknic tables and fire pit which we hung out at a lot. We enjoyed toasting marshmallows every night.

The entrance to Tsali is so close. We can even see a Tsali trail from the yard. We went rafting down the Nantahala and motor boated on Fontana. We rented a boat at prince's boat dock which is just a mile away. Everyone was so nice. We enjoyed the train staion area in Bryson City one day and the nice shops. One day we went to Santeetlah lake to the Cheoah Point Beach. Very relaxing, fun and safe for the kids.

Views to die for! Total privacy. Room to turn a motor boat around. There is a trail down to the lake for swimming.

Nantahala Village: A Grand Old Mountain Resort

Nantahala Village offers a variety of accomodations. There is a modern lodge, and cabins from rustic to modern. Every year our family rents the Tabor House, an old farmhouse with a wrap around porch that was here before this property was a resort. We use it as a central gathering place, and then family members stay in different cabins which are clustered about. We find it a grand setup for our family. Busy schedules always keep some of us from making it, but last Septemer there were 71 of us present. That's four generations of our immediate family. I'm one of 12 siblings and just about all of us have children, and grandchildren. When we get together we have a blast.
