“Beautiful location! We brought a boat and the Marina staff and Marina facilities were both excellent. Fontana Lake is the star of the area...simply gorgeous, well worth the trip. We were very happy and are planning on returning next year!”

our favorite place
“A well-needed, unplugged couple of days was just what the doctor ordered. The Marina and pontoon boat tour of Fontana Dam are worth seeing. The lake is so clean. We can't stop talking about our trip and we're telling all of our friends and relatives what GREAT fun we had!”

lots to do!
“We visited this resort in July and had a wonderful time. So much to do, you don't have to leave! You can rent pontoon boats, kayaks, and paddleboards and enjoy the amazing scenery on Fontana Lake. I'm really happy we took advantage of that!”
