Lake Communities

Fontana Lake is home to many. It provides lakefront living in the scenic Great Smoky Mountains of Western North Carolina. It’s secluded mountain living in a private community. Adventure and recreation abound. There’s nothing like waking up to see a Smoky Mountain Morning.

Fontana Lake is a 10,600 wilderness lake with some of the best bass and walleye fishing in the area. Fontana Lake offers several public marinas, and nearby boat rentals are also available as needed.

The neighborhood Tsali Biking Trail is one of the top mountain biking trails in the country. And the Appalachian Trail is in your backyard, as it crosses right through the Nantahala Outdoor Center at our south gate.
