Going to Deep Creek has always been a yearly vacation event for my family - since I was a child, then with my wife, and then with our children, after we became parents. This is a cherished piece of Americana which changes in a way - but never really changes. The national park, with its breathtaking display of nature, is a peaceful refuge from the everyday pressures of the modern lifestyle. Whether one walks the trails of the park, sits and listens to the symphony of the crystal clear waters of Deep Creek, or seeks to outsmart that trophy trout, Deep Creek has something for everyone of every age. Since the early 1960s, tubing down the creek is a unique local tradition that continues to grow each year.

 
 
The lodge
is bordered by Deep Creek, which is the source of whitewater coming out of the park and dumping shortly thereafter into the Tuckasegee river. There are many varied vacation options in all directions. The GSMR ( Great Smokey Mountains Railway) is a mile away. In the weeks before Christmas, the arrival of the Polar Express is an unforgettable family event. Cherokee Indian Reservation is 10 miles away with museums, shops, and (for the adults) Harrah's Casino, if you feel lucky. Pioneer Village is a mile or so above Cherokee, followed by Mingus Mill. Gatlinburg lies just 35 miles beyond. The Gem Capitol, Franklin, NC holds untold riches in its
 

 
  gem mines, just waiting for the kids to find their treasures. Pigeon Forge is only a day trip, as is Cade's Cove (a mountain valley community preserved in time by the Park). If you want to see elk, then Cataloochee valley is the place. Then there's the uniquely spooky "Road to Nowhere " above Bryson City. Visit the website - just learning about it online will raise the hairs on the back of your neck. Visit if you dare!  

There just isn't anything like stepping out to the early morning fresh mountain air and listening to the babbling waters of Deep Creek. I hope you can experience this with us.
