Day Trips to Lake Junaluska

Lake Junaluska


Lake Junaluska is your choice lake getaway in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. This two hundred acre manmade lake is a prime destination for kayaking, boating, fishing, swimming, and general marine recreation. Being just a hop, skip, and jump away from the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, it’s an ideal location to blend lake and mountain vacations.

In addition to having the benefits of both a lake and mountain park, Lake Junaluska is also right next to beautiful Asheville, the “San Francisco of the East,” a quirky and artsy destination that’s also full of history and life. If the boating and hiking in the mountains aren’t enough to keep you busy, Asheville will surely provide you with neverending options.

Only a short 8 mile drive from Buffalo Creek, Lake Jualuska is beautiful spot to spend the day.
