A twenty-minute pontoon boat ride across Fontana Lake takes you to one of the most remote areas of the National Park, where wildlife sightings are commonplace and smoky mountain fly fishing is legendary.



Each year, millions of people “escape” to the Smokies, distancing themselves from the drudgery of their everyday routines for a refreshing brush with nature. Yet only few are lucky enough to really escape, leaving all traces of civilization behind — camping under the stars, fishing for wild mountain trout, following un-beaten paths into the wildest areas of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

You can be one of those lucky few. Smoky Mountain Adventures takes small groups of 5 to 12 campers across Fontana Lake to the remote North Shore forest for a memorable two-day guided outing. Everything is provided — the equipment, the food and the expert knowledge of one of the Smokies’ most experienced guides, Steve Claxton.

Your Smoky Mountain camping, hiking and fly fishing trip is just a phone call away.

Steve is featured on this Weather Channel segment about fishing on Hazel Creek in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
