Overview

Overview

Located in the Cheoah Point Recreation Area in Nantahala National Forest, this cabin is part of a campground that includes tent and RV sites as well as a second cabin. The campground is situated on a peninsula in Santeetlah Lake, surrounded by mixed hardwood forest.

Cheoah Point Cabin 2 is reservable from the end of March through mid-October. This retreat offers a view of the lake from the front room and patio.

Natural Features:

Santeetlah Lake is man-made and offers 76 miles of shoreline surrounded by natural forest. There are many coves and inlets to discover and mountain views to enjoy.

Birders will find several bird species here. Spotted sandpiper and osprey are sometimes seen in the spring and summer. Red crossbills, green herons and prothonotary warblers have been known to visit during migration.

Recreation:

There's a playground within the recreation area, as well as a swim beach and boat ramp. Santeetlah Lake is ideal for fishing, power boating, non-motorized boating, sailing, jet skiing and water skiing. Anglers can find bass, walleye, trout, crappie and bream.

The Wauchecha Bald Trail is nearby, which starts as an easy hike but becomes more difficult. This trail eventually leads to the well-known Appalachian Trail.

Facilities:

This primitive cabin has two rooms and can sleep up to six people. The front room has a full bed frame and the back room has a set of bunk bed frames. Outside of the cabin is a concrete patio with a grill, picnic table, lantern post and electric outlet unit. There are no electrical outlets inside. There is no running water inside the cabin, but there are water spigots located throughout the campground. Flush toilets and shower facilities are located approximately 150 feet away.

Visitors may wish to bring pads or mattresses and bedding. Supplies and equipment for preparing food, in addition to a cooler, are recommended.

Nearby Attractions:

Great Smoky Mountains National Park is just a short distance away, offering an ideal day trip from Cheoah Point.
