Alarka Boat Rentals
Fontana Lake, on Great Smoky Mountains National Park’s southwest border, is a worthy vacation destination. Easily accessed from Bryson City, N.C., the lake offers camping, hiking, fishing and boating in one of Appalachia’s most scenic areas. For a day of family fun, rent a 24-foot pontoon boat from Alarka and spend the afternoon tubing or exploring the lake’s hidden coves. If bass fishing is more your style, check out a 16-foot Seark to access honey holes inaccessible from land. The marina also coordinates with several guide services, to better your chances of landing a keeper to roast over the campfire that evening.
