Overview

Overview

Rattler Ford Group Campground sits near the swift-moving Santeetlah Creek in the Nantahala National Forest.

Groups of up to 25 guests can enjoy the creek, which is popular for fly fishing, as well as Lake Santeetlah, which provides countless water sports and activities.

Natural Features:

Large trees and thick forests provide moderate shade for the campground, while vast meadows also allow for sunshine and open play.

Nantahala is a Cherokee word meaning "land of the noonday sun," which is appropriate, as the sun only reaches the deep gorges of the western North Carolina mountains and valleys at midday.

Recreation:

The campground is located about 2.5 miles from the boat ramp at Lake Santeetlah, which provides visitors access to all types of water-related activities, including fishing, boating, canoeing and swimming.

Horseshoe pits and volleyball courts are available within the campground. Visitors can also enjoy a variety of hiking trails and scenic drives in the area.

Facilities:

The campground offers four sites, each with varying facilities, but all able to accommodate several tents and up to 25 guests. Multiple tables are available at each site, as well as lantern posts and campfire pits. Each site also provides an oversized grill.

Flush toilets and drinking water are provided at the campground, as well as hot showers. Some of the sites are situated near the water.

Nearby Attractions:

The entrance to Joyce Kilmer Wilderness, which contains nearly 6,000 acres of old-growth forest, is about a quarter-mile from the campground.
