Lake Junaluska Travel Guide

High in the mountains of North Carolina, Lake Junaluska is a place to disconnect, relax, and escape the chaos of everyday life. The 200-acre lake is surrounded by over 1,200 acres of rolling hills and lush valleys just waiting to be explored. It was initially built as a mountain resort for the Methodist church in the early 1900s, but today it’s open to anyone with a desire to get out and appreciate the great outdoors. With a population of under 3,000, the community is super tight-knit, and has a few fun events come summertime.

Things to Do in Lake Junaluska

The iconic Rose Walk is a path along Lake Shore Drive that’s lined with rose bushes and makes for an excellent morning stroll. For another great walking option, hop on the Lake Junaluska walking trail, which surrounds the entirety of the lake. Out on the water, you should definitely consider doing a boat tour (motorized or paddle boat), and go fishing. Try to align your trip with the Smokey Mountain Folk Festival, the Fourth of July, or the Balsam Range Art of Music Festival.

Christmas also isn’t a bad time to visit. Although it can be cold, the Appalachian Christmas festival has live music, delicious food, and local artistry to keep you warm.

Best Time to Visit Lake Junaluska

Generally speaking, the best time to appreciate all there is in Lake Junaluska is during the summer. Visit between Memorial Day and Labor Day to witness most of the action.
