HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 7 September 2016

The Fontana Village Lodge was a wonderful re-discovery! I had been there years (and years) ago, but this visit was a revelation. With a number of different accommodation options, it's a terrific place for families to spend time together. The only problem was, our visit was too short to enjoy everything as much as we would have liked! First, you're...

Thank you for your excellent review! Fontana Village does not guarantee specific cabin numbers or campground spaces, but does their best to honor requests. Please keep in mind that the actual Fontana Campground is located one mile from the Village Center next to Fontana Dam and the Little Tennessee River.
