In Europe, fishing for carp and other “rough” fish has been a popular pastime for centuries. Now American anglers – both bait and fly fishermen - are falling in love with the sport of Carp Fishing. As anyone who has hooked a carp can attest, these hefty brutes fight harder and longer than just about any game fish you will ever hook!
The Adventure Village offers a one-acre pond full of Carp and Catfish, weighing from 1 to 30 pounds. The fishing pond is open to the public year-round, as well as providing village tenants with the opportunity to catch that fish of a lifetime. After a quick photograph, all carp must be released. Monthly tournaments during the spring, summer and fall add to the challenge of hooking and landing these whiskered, magnum-sized members of the minnow family.
When you are fishing at the Adventure Village and Lodging you can be rest assured that it will become one of your family-friendly past time. No alcohol, drugs or loud music is permitted. In addition we offer rental rods, scented carp bait, hooks and other fishing accessories in our Village Store.
We do ask all fisherman to abide by The Village Catch-&-Release Rule for the Carp and catfish.

If you prefer to catch trout thru the summer months there is a trout farm a 1/4 of a mile away. They will clean the trout and pack on ice for you to cook. The phone # for the trout location is 828-553-2217. Rent a tent site, RV Site, a Camping Cabin, Family Chalet or a Jacuzzi Suite, tour our 90 ares resort and make yourself at home. You will find it clean, peaceful, family and pet friendly.
We also carry all the information on all the river trips that are in the area and of course the 250 waterfalls that make us great.
