At The Center Of It All

The Epicenter Of Everything Active

Live at the epicenter of everything active in the heart of the Smokies! Whether you’re up for the thrill of some whitewater sports on our famous Nantahala River – or the rush of the action at Harrah’s. Whether you’d like to challenge the mountain on some of the best biking/hiking trails anywhere, or kick back under one of her many waterfalls. Rockledge plays the perfect host at the center of it all, a magnet attracting outdoor enthusiast and those who’ve earned some restful solitude. Soaring mountain-lake-wilderness meshes seamlessly with the ultimate in outdoor adventure.


Take a hike to soak in some of nature’s most lush bounty – or ruin a good walk on one of our nearby championship golf courses. Have a hazy, lazy time fishing the incredible Fontana Lake and picnicking at our private Marina Park, or learn to fly fish or kayak on our reknown whitewater river and lunch at a mountain restaurant overlooking the action. Stay in wilderness shape in our fitness center with state-of-the-art equipment, or get some different exercise boutique-hopping and lunching in town (or gallery-hopping in nearby Asheville!). Have a family reunion weekend with a guided rafting trip for the whole gang – and feel free to use the Rockledge Lodge events kitchen, outdoor grille and social center…”.

Pursue your life on your terms!

Kayak toward a setting sun, take the kids for an outing on the water with water toys you didn’t even know existed, cocktail cruise surrounded by magnificence, drop a line or cast a fly on trophy trout streams. We share most of our Fontana Lake shoreline with The Great Smoky Mountain National Park and the Nantahla National Forest, protecting probably the most beautiful lake in North Carolina from commercial encroachment. And our trails, right at your doorstep, connect directly to the heart of The Appalachian Trail.

ALL the options are open on a daily basis! Rockledge offers perhaps the best convergence of wilderness amenities that exist in the Eastern United States. When you arrive at the bridge in Bryson City that says BOTH “Fontana Lake” AND “Nantahala River”, you’ve arrived at Rockledge! We share our mountain with the illustrious Nantahala Outdoor Center where world champion kayakers train. Go out our back gate and you’re in the NOC world of soaring zip lines, whitewater rafting and kayaking, riverside restaurants and tennis courts and some of the best fly-fishing anywhere. What’s more, Rockledge residents enjoy full priveleges at the NOC.
