We rented a camp site, by the water (close to the dam). Very relaxing. It would have been nice if the bath house had more than 1 shower (and could be a little cleaner). Overall super place. Even with renting just the campsite, the amenities are included. Lunch at the Wildwood Grill and Spirits (excellent). Yes there is a Lodge... More

Fontana Village Resort is not what it used to be. The rooms definitely need to be redone. For the price paid ($150) we expected something nicer. We booked a room that said it had a private terrace. There was no outside terrace on the lower level. It looked out on the parking lot. Some of the rooms had chairs outside... More

I first passed through here almost 30 years ago and have visited many time since. About 6 years ago I brought my wife and two sons here and they fell in love with it. It's a great place for families since there is so much to do if you like outdoors activities: hiking, swimming, floating in lazy river, fishing, mini-golf,... More

The property is beautiful. We requested a cabana room, which they had ready for us. However, I'm somewhat handicapped because of a back injury and can't climb stairs well, so we had to change rooms. They moved us to another room, which was ground floor. The room definitely need some updating for sure. The carpet was old and warn. The... More

We visited this resort in July and had a wonderful time. It is a very secluded area but with so much to do, you don't have to leave! There are pools, fire pits, mini golf, disc golf and more! There are 2 restaurants on-site, one is more pub style and the other is their finer dining, both very good. At... More

I grew up coming to Fontana Village every summer. It has been at least 25 years since I had been there. We always used to either stay in a cabin or in an RV at the campground by the dam. My daughter is working nearby and had 25 hours off so my son and I picked her up and headed... More

We stayed in the lodge, 2 queens. It would have been nice to have a mini-refrigerator, as most rooms in this price range would have one. The bathroom was fine, beds were fine. The whole resort has great wifi, which is good because cell service is almost non-existent in this part of the mountains. The pool at the lodge is... More

We had about 10 rooms in various phases of the property and about 40 people staying for July 4 weekend. I personally stayed in a Cabana room which was MUCH nicer than the website portrays - I recommend the property update their website because it was so much nicer and quaint in person. The vaulted ceiling made the room feel... More
