Nantahala has a little of the outdoors for everyone
     The Nantahala River is located in the Great Smoky Mountain's Nantahala National Forest at base of the Nantahala Gorge. Just south of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park the river is the most popular whitewater rafting river in the United States. Its' relatively mild yet fast running waters make the Nantahala River an ideal family adventure. A vacation in Nantahala features the peaceful mountain atmosphere and the adventure of outdoor sports. We have a world-class whitewater river, the best trout fishing rivers on the eastern seaboard, breath-taking horseback riding trails on thousands of miles of National Forestry, and world famous mountain biking trails along the ridges of Great Smoky Mountains.

     Nantahala has other attractions for the young and young at heart. The Great Smoky Mountain Railroad runs along side of the Nantahala River and sits in the middle of its excursions depots. Pick one of its four departure points for a ride through the scenic foothills of the Smoky Mountains of Western North Carolina with a view of forests, country sides and rivers. Take a day's excursion to Fontana Lake to see the highest Dam in eastern America - an engineering masterpiece or spend the day in Cherokee, NC at the Oconaluftee Indian Village where the past comes alive at this authentic recreation of an 18th century Cherokee Indian community. Maybe your idea of fun is the newly built Harrah's Casino in Cherokee or Ghost Town In the Sky for the atmosphere of the Old West and the thrill of the world's most unusual roller coaster.
