If you’re bringing a group to raft or zip at Wildwater, our 1900s-style Appalachian Barn Group Lodge is just the place for your family, youth group, church, scouting and organization retreats. Each of the six suites opens onto a large deck, and has its own bathroom. Suites vary from 4 to 8 bunks, and the lodge can accommodate up to 44 people total. Bring your own sheets, towels and pillows. There is a large communal dining hall that is perfect for group activities, and you can rent our kitchen, or use the outdoor charcoal grill to prepare meals.
Check-in & Check-out: Check-in is 3pm & check-out is 10:30am. We request that you check out before going out on your days adventures so we can clean for the next Guests. Keys are located in a mailbox at Wildwater Nantahala across Highway 19 at the Rafting Center.
Facilities: The Group Lodge is a bunkhouse designed for groups of 4-44 people. All rooms have heat, and each has a bathroom and shower. Five rooms house 8 individuals with an additional room is a ADA accessible 4-person room. Each bunk has a light and fan, but you’ll need to bring your own bedding, towel, and pillow. A group dining or meeting area is located downstairs in the barn and a separate kitchen is available for rent. The kitchen contains cooking utensils, but you’ll need to bring your own cups, plates and silverware.
