We passed Fontana Lake and noticed people using a rope swing and paddle-boards. We pulled off the road and found a large parking lot where Bryson City Outdoors were set up and renting stand-up paddle-boards. We rented paddle-boards and tandem paddle-boards, oars and lifejackets for a small fee ($20 per hour). The lake was wonderfully warm, clear and such a... 更多
Fontana lake is beautiful. The town is small and very welcoming. I would highly recommend going to the Nantahala outdoor center, there are alot of different activities and it is also very nice and fun to sit by the river and watch the rafters and kayakers. If you want to have a long weekend Fontana is the place to go.... 更多
We rented a pontoon boat on this very long and beautiful lake. The water is an emerald green color and the scenery is gorgeous. Water temperature in August was 65-70 degrees.

We rented a pontoon from the Almond Boat Park and took off to the dam and back on a Monday in June. This is a huge, magnificent lake which had very little boat traffic on our adventure. The water level was very high, so for us “newbies” it was a little hard to find a decent place to tie up,... 更多
I enjoyed seeing the lake and dam. The information boards were quite helpful and interesting. We also visited Fontana Village. I was not very impressed with it. The food was average with a rather limited menu for vegetarians. The gift shops at both the dam and the village were rather junky with stuff made in Vietnam and did not represent... 更多
