Discover A Pristine Paradise When You Visit North Carolina’s Lake Santeetlah

The Great Smoky Mountains National Park is a recreational resource recognized by the entire nation as the third most popular U.S. national park in the system, right behind the Blue Ridge Parkway and the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. In 2020, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park welcomed 12.1 million visitors, in spite of the world-wide pandemic. And within the park there are a number of must-see attractions, but you’d be remiss if you didn’t set aside some time to experience the pristine paradise found at a little-known lake on the southern end of the park.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
