There are plenty of activities to enjoy on the grounds around the lodge, such as playing horseshoes or volleyball, running in the grass, relaxing on the docks, and excellent fishing (permits required). And bring your own boat or jet skis to keep at your dock for cruising the beautiful crystal blue W. Kerr Scott Lake with its 55 miles of shoreline and 1,475 acres of surface. Or take a 5-minute walk from the lodge and rent a canoe, kayak, or mountain bike from Wilderness Lodge Canoes and Kayaks. We even offer drop-offs and pick-ups for self-guided canoeing or kayak trips down the Yadkin River which gracefully empties into the lake only a few miles from your dock.

Rent bikes and explore the mountain biking trails such as the Overmountain Victory National Historic Trail and the Dark Mountain Trails which wind around the lake. As guests of the Wilderness Lodge you will also receive substantial rental and river trip discounts from Wilderness Canoe and Kayaks.

You'll never run out of things to do outdoors! Visit any of the 4 state parks around the lake, visit Skyline Marina or one of the 2 bookstores, hunt for deer and wild turkey in any of the 5 wildlife management areas (license required and seasonal restrictions apply), swim and sunbathe at any of the 5 designated swimming beaches, or just jump off your private dock and swim at the lodge, fish off of any of the 3 fishing piers or just catch 'em from your own dock (permit required), stop and rest while the children tire themselves out on one of the 8 playgrounds, explore the 3 overlooks, and don't forget to pack your lunch and eat at one of the 9 picnic areas. Whatever your interests, this mountain lake paradise has something for you!

So whether you are looking for a quiet, peaceful retreat for your family to get away from everything, or you need a premier gathering place for a wedding or family reunion, or you want a single vacation destination full of adventure and family entertainment, this spectacular lodge will meet your needs and exceed your expectations! Located between Wilkesboro and Boone and Blowing Rock just 25 minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway, you can experience the beauty and serenity of lakefront living, the grandeur of the Blue Ridge Mountains, and the unlimited possibilities for adventure in shopping, dining, and outdoor adventure found in the High Country of North Carolina all from this remarkable Wilderness Lodge.
