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.

Love places like that. Hardly anyone around, do my metal detecting and Bicycling. Have coffee with anyone that wants some.
