Are you looking for something different from your typical summer vacation to the beach? Are you are wanting something more adventurous that is suitable for the entire family? Why not give the mountains of SC, NC & TN a try! Wildwater has lodging and outdoor activities for families ages 4-94!
The unique Yurt lodging at the Nantahala provides a great place for families to bond in a rustic outdoor setting where there is a sense of camping, but Mom gets a Queen-sized bed and hot showers! The Nantahala and Pigeon Rivers are close by for great family rafting; ages 7 and up can raft at the Nantahala, ages 4 and up can raft the Lower Pigeon (little over an hour away). There is a canopy tour at both locations for ages 10 and up and a Kidzip at the Nantahala for ages 4 and up. Do you have Grandma and Grandpa with you? Although we regularly see 3 generations on our canopy tours, the Jeep tour is perfect for those who aren’t up for prolonged activity. And, don’t forget the Great Smoky Mountains Railroad and train adventures for the entire family!
“Unique and Stunning! This place (Nantahala Yurts) was my answer to camping with the family. We have two 7 year olds and wanted to get them outdoors and adventuring. I wanted something a little more comfortable and this is what we found. This was such an amazing experience we are already planning our next trip…. Sleeping to the true sounds of nature on a queen-size bed. Perfection!” March, 2016
Not enough options yet? The Chattooga has multiple lodging options including bunk yurts, cottages & the larger, fully furnished Jawbone & Corkscrew Cabins. There are 3 rafting options for ages 8 & up on the Chattooga River- Section III Mini 1/2 day trip, Section III full-day trip, and the ultimate Section IV trip (ages 12 & up). Is there anyone who wants to give whitewater kayaking a try? Sign them up for the Kayak Clinic. Or maybe you want something more relaxing? Take a tour on Lake Tugaloo on our lake kayaks or stand up paddle boards. Also located on the Wildwater Chattooga campus is our zipline canopy tour for ages 10 and up.
If you are planning to spend some of your mountain time in the Asheville area, the Asheville Adventure Center can keep everyone entertained all day. Try out the full Canopy Tour through some old growth Oak trees, and for those little ones who aren’t 10 years old yet, the KidZip is a great option. After everyone is done playing on the zip lines, take a trip around the high ropes adventure course at the Adventure Park. The 5 different level sky paths that offer challenges from easy and moderate skill levels to the most difficult, everyone can pick their own path and level of difficulty.
