Historic Lake Tour

Hop aboard the famous Miss Hazel — a historic, U.S. Coast Guard-approved, 36-ft pontoon boat — for a scenic cruise along the beautiful Eagle and Hazel Creek waterways. This 1.5-hour tour features breathtaking views of the trails, forests, and mountains, and is accompanied by an experienced Captain sharing tales (some tall!) about everything within eyeline. This incredible experience brings visitors back to Fontana Village year after year, and should not be missed.
