Fontana Village is where fun comes with the territory and lasting memories are made generation after generation. We’re nestled in the Nantahala National Forest in the mountains of Western North Carolina, making us a perfect year-round destination. Our mission is to create an honest Smokies experience for our guests and to ensure that they’ll remember their stay with us for a lifetime. In fact, many of the same guests who stayed with us as kids, have now returned as parents with their own children, hoping to share with them the same authentic adventures.
People have been coming to Fontana Village since 1942 when the Tennessee Valley Authority began construction on the Fontana Dam. The reservoir it created has since been a destination for sports and water enthusiasts. Our surroundings slowly grew to add activities and more fun for all. Our full-service marina offers a wide range of boat and equipment rental, as well as lake tours!
Fontana Village Resort will make your motorcycle club event one to remember. Our year-round resort provides personalized attention and inspiring surroundings for your event. Experience the most exciting scenic highways in the country. Car and motorcycle clubs throughout the country base their events at Fontana because of its central location to the endless miles of forested roadways in the region such as the Tail of the Dragon, Cherohala Skyway, Moonshiner 28 and the Blue Ridge Parkway.
