When to Visit
Splash into Spring with NOC Adventures
Spring means Appalachian Trail hikers, budding flora, and an eagerness to shake that cabin fever brought on by the colder months of the year. Come on outside and enjoy the sunshine with a big adventure! Check out whitewater rafting on multiple Southeastern Rivers; see the new life emerging along the banks of the Wild and Scenic Chattooga, get ready for a summer on the river with a kayaking course, or take your pick of activities at our 500-acre Nantahala River Campus.
