Nantahala NC USA


I grew up white water rafting on the Nantahala River in North Carolina every summer up until 14yrs old. Unfortunately the family friend that planned all of the trips is dead, and none of the adults recall any details of where we were.

My brother and I are looking to camp two nights and spend one day (Friday) on the water, probably in a two man ducky.

I'm looking for recommendations for a beautiful green campsite, doesn't need to be finished with any amenities. Looking to be away from screaming kids or loud parties. Also looking for feedback on any of the many outfitters.

I appreciate your time!

Lost Mine Campground. About a mile from the NOC store/takeout. They don't allow partying. NOC is probably the highest price outfitter but you only have to ride the bus once since the takeout is at their place.
