US 129 Tail of the Dragon

Recommended Posts

Years ago, before smartphones, I took a trip and found a neat little camping area that is not only free, but all the spots are on Lake Santeetlah near Robbinsville, NC. It is first come/first serve with no reservations. You could reasonably fit a 20' travel trailer or 25' C class rv, I wouldn't try for much larger owing to turn around room. Tent camping it fine. Road noise is non existent. It has 5 reasonably large spots, 2 are very level, 3 are not. It is 12 miles from "The Tail" if that's the star attraction for you. There is a open pit outhouse on site towards the entrance. I would encourage looking at the picture on the google listing as nothing I have taken with my 12 year old 6MP digital camera will do it justice. 



It is affectionately referred to as NSCR #1147

The Location (google is slightly misleading with the actual location)

The Google listing



If you have a casual interest in hydro or civil engineering like myself, The Santeetlah Dam has a nearly 5 mile long penstock to its powerhouse at the foot of Fontana Dam on the Little Tennessee River.


I will be going back out there towards the end of the year.
