What better way to spend a vacation in Western North Carolina than to raft our nationally known Nantahala River? Winding through what is commonly known as the Nantahala Gorge, the River is hemmed in by towering mountains and beautiful view of the sky. Rafting here is a wonderful way to make family memories, enjoy another aspect of God’s wonderful creation, and experience the delights of cold water and rapids.

Every summer, hundreds of tourists flock to the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina to visit the Nantahala. Flowing beside the two-lane US Highway 19/74, this lovely river is a striking combination of adventure and calm. The highway is dotted with numerous areas for picnicking and enjoying the river while staying dry. For the majority, however, paddling the river is the greatest attraction.

There are many local rafters who are ready to help make your trip down the river a success. There’s the Nantahala Outdoor Center, the Paddle Inn Rafting Company, WILDWATER, and Carolina Outfitters, to name a few. Book your journey down the Nantahala now!

If you are looking for a home-base from which to launch your adventures at the river, consider your search ended. Peachtree Cove RV Park is the perfect place to set up camp so you can enjoy days on the river to the fullest. Contact us for more information and to make your reservation.
