We stopped at Fontana Village resort in March of 2015 while on our Appalachian Trail through hike. Due to the time of year it was relatively empty. I cannot report about customer service during busy times of year, but it was quite good in February when we were passing through. We used the Laundromat to clean our smelly hiker cothes... More

This place is terrible, and not a campground. It was so bad that after driving 3 hours and arriving at 5pm we didn't stay and ended up staying in cherokee instead. FIRST THINGS FIRST: DO NOT PLAN ON TOWING A CAMPER HERE UNLESS IT'S A POP UP. The steep winding road is simply not worth the terrible campground. After driving... More

Thank you so much for your review. Without a sports car or motorcycle the only things to do at the Resort are swimming in the two pools and lazy river, enjoying the miles of hiking and mountain biking trails, tennis, volleyball, basketball, mini golf, an 18 hole professional disc golf course, renting a kayak, canoe or pontoon boat at the...

We really enjoyed our stay this past Saturday at the Fontana Village Resort. Our room, in the lodge, was very clean and comfortable. The property was well kept with plenty of things to do. We rented a golf cart and drove all throughout the property. The staff was very friendly and made us feel welcomed. We ate dinner at the... More

Fontana Village is one of our favorite summer destinations. It's not fancy, but it's perfect for a relaxing trip in a beautiful location. The two best parts of this trip were the Mountainview Restaurant and a hike to Lookout Rock. JP led our hike to Lookout Rock and we had a great time with him. He pointed out all the... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in June 2016. The place is clean and comfortable and very quiet. We played putt putt golf one night and really had fun. There are 2 pools but we did not use them. They also had fires in the fire pits in the evening and provided ingredients to make smores.

Had a great time staying in the cabin at the resort. The Mountview restaurant was unbelievable good. Christy our waitress was very good and her recommendations were spot on. Only suggestion would be to have more activities early in the morning both me and my grandson are early birds.

We made a last minute decision to take a mini vacation to the mountains and came across this place. I could not have been more pleased.

We traded a timeshare week to this resort. Our accommodation was a 2 bedroom cabin (#524). The location of the resort was beautiful. My husband and son enjoyed many of the hiking trails, and we all enjoyed a morning of canoeing and kayaking on the lake. We also enjoyed visiting Fontana Dam. The staff, particularly in the restaurant, were very... More
