    Independence Day Weekend at Brookside

    Yesterday we celebrated Independence Day and the campground was completely full.  Folks from all over North Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee--and throughout the south--decided to spend their holiday here at Brookside.

    Did you visit Brookside this weekend?  If so, we'd love for you to share your stories--and photos--and we will feature them on the website.

    Here's a preview of what the campground looked like over the weekend:



    The Falls

    The second biggest thrill on the Nantahala River has to be the falls.  Why second?  Because the "bump" right before the falls always seems to surprise people. 

    Here are some great shots of customers going down the falls:

     And sometimes they fall . . .

    But don't worry.  All customers receive life jackets before heading down the river, so swimming skills are not necessary. 

    Join the fun and make a reservation today!
