Stay & play

Many of our out-of-town visitors love playing here so much, they come back again the next day – or wish they could! And with so many area attractions (see below), why not stay a while?

That’s why we’ve teamed up with the following lodging options to give you some Stay & Play options!

Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge mountains, among acres of pine and oak woods along the eastern shores of stunning Lake James – sits the best kept camping secret in North Carolina – Lake James Camping Resort and Marina.

Take exit 94 off I-40 and head northwest for 4-winding miles. You’ll be greeted by breathtaking views at every turn, and when you set sight of the crystal-clear blue waters of Lake James – you have arrived!

Tucked away near the Blue Ridge Mountains, yet only minutes from Lake James and Morganton, is a great family style retreat. The home is updated with 4 bedrooms, and 2 baths and is located at the end of a private road. Surrounded by woods, there is only one other home in sight.

The best part of this retreat are the two ponds, one for swimming, the other for catch and release fishing! You are only minutes away from local wineries, Lake James, Morganton downtown shopping, restaurants, craft breweries, Catawba River, parks and trails.
