Historic Fontana Village was originally a small town built in the early 1940s for workers from around the country that came to construct the Fontana Dam, a Tennessee Valley Authority project to support the war effort. These days the Village is a hopping tourist destination with lodging ranging from a campground, to rental cabins, to more traditional lodge style rooms. There are four dining options at Fontana Village with more elegant dining at the Mountview Bistro, the casual Wildwood Grill, spirits and beverages at the Bears Den Lounge, an ice cream parlor and several snack options. The Fontana Village Marina is a full service marina with boat rentals, store and gift shop, and an excellent view of the lake.
Prince Boat Dock
Prince Boat Dock offers an on-lake experience with floating cabins. The cabins have all the comforts of home with a full kitchen, two bedrooms along with sleeper sofa, full bath, and large docks for grilling and entertaining. PBD also offers pontoon boat rentals and marina store.
Almond Boat Park
Almond Boat Park has the only lake front cabin rentals on Fontana. The cabins are 1-2 bedrooms with 1-2 full bathrooms, accommodating up to eight people. They are clean and neat with linens provided, full kitchen, and Wi-Fi. Almond also has a RV park with full hook-up and 30 amp or 50 amp electrical service.
These are just a few of the many options around the lake. For more on-lake options, there are several privately owned rental houseboats listed on Airbnb and VRBO.
