You’ll Never Run Out of Things to Do
Kirkland Creek Campground is in the middle of Western North Carolina’s vast outdoor playground, a central location for dozens of great adventures. The area is anchored by the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, with entrances just minutes away in Bryson City and Cherokee, and the Nantahala Gorge with its zip lines and white water rafting.
In Bryson City, the Great Smoky Mountains Railroad carries upwards of 200,000 riders on its scenic excursions and special events each year. And in nearby Cherokee, cultural attractions like the Oconaluftee Indian Village and the outdoor pageant Unto These Hills entertain thousands each summer.
This page lists some of the area’s most popular activities and attractions. But to know everything there is to do and see in Western North Carolina, visit these pages on Bryson City’s informative website, GreatSmokies.com —
