Cable Cove Campground Professional Review and Guide

"If you look at most maps, Cable Cove Campground appears to be right on Fontana Lake, but in reality it’s not, so don’t be fooled. There is, however, a small, slow-moving creek that runs through the property with some campsites right beside it. So you can get a waterfront camping experience here, just not the one you might be expecting. The sites are wooded and very well spaced.

A nearby boat ramp affords easy access to Fontana Lake, and the area offers miles of hiking trails. One thing to keep in mind: The area tends to stay damp. So if you are tent camping, be sure to bring a tarp to place underneath it as a barrier from the wet ground, no matter what time of year it is."
