Every year when Father’s Day rolls around, dads get an assortment of the strangest gifts in the store. A biography of a sports legend he’s never heard of, outdoor technology for that weeklong hiking excursion he’s supposedly always wanted to try, and ties in a variety of colors and shades that suit his family more than the man himself. If you want to give dad a gift he’ll love—and remember—the best present is quality time. Here are 4 Lake Nantahala Father’s Day activities for you and your family.
- Fishing: There’s no better Father’s Day gift than a morning of relaxation, nature, and dad’s favorite people. Lake Nantahala, the Nantahala River, and the streams near the Reflection gated community have an impressive array of fish to catch. Find dad’s favorite fishing spot or explore the shores of North Carolina mountain creeks.
- Golfing: If your father or husband prefers a slower paced sport, take him golfing for Father’s Day. The Nantahala village has several scenic golf courses nearby, including Cherokee Hills Golf Course in nearby Murphy, NC. Find other courses nestled into the Great Smokey Mountains and the Nantahala National Forest.
- Boating: Nothing else gives dad the rest and relaxation of a Father’s Day spent on the lake. Pack a cooler, rent a boat, and enjoy the warm sunshine and lakeside breezes of an afternoon on the water.
- Homemade Food: Does your dad love to grill, munch homemade snacks, and sip refreshing drinks by the lake? Plan a family cookout for Father’s Day. Prepare tasty, marinated steaks or keep it classic with burgers. Don’t forget to make his favorite dessert from scratch!
Show dad you love him by making new memories. Enjoy your Father’s Day at Lake Nantahala with your favorite North Carolina mountain man.
