A Twist on Traditional Camping

With all of the amenities available in the Reflection Lake Nantahala community, it’s hard to find a reason to leave home. Our beautiful Summit Park provides an elegant pavilion, a fire pit, and access to nearby hiking, fishing, and golfing. But despite the cozy gardens and scenic view of our North Carolina lakeside cabins, sometimes the spirit of adventure calls. Luckily, a new trend in camping lets you explore the great outdoors without sacrificing your creature comforts.


CampingGlamping has been gaining popularity in National Forests and lakeside resorts for years, but only recently has it become a national phenomenon. Glamping, or “glamorous camping,” allows adventurers to enjoy the beauty of nature without forgoing home amenities. Unlike traditional campsites, “glamp grounds” have running water, comfortable beds, and luxury amenities. When researching your destination, you can choose how much your family wants to rough it. For example, some glamping resorts come with TV and internet, while others simply lessen the inconvenience of traditional camping by adding bathtubs and beds to each tent. Glamping resorts span the country, letting families study wildlife and explore forests from North Carolina to Montana in style.
