OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES

Our outdoor activities include a playing in the streams, three in-ground trampolines, horseshoes, volleyball, playground complete with sandbox, multiple large bon fire areas and our fully stocked fishing pond allows you to catch fresh trout ideal for a campfire dinner. 

 

 

Also available is an outdoor covered kitchen with charcoal grills, electricity and water.  Our decking system with multiple picnic tables with umbrellas is ideal for groups desiring outdoor picnics and barbecues.  

For those rainy days we have hundreds of movie rentals and a TV room with over 300 satellite channels.

There are 4 waterfalls which are accessible from the observation deck or by a short hike. Speaking of hiking, there are miles of trails, including a 1.5 mile path connecting to the Appalachian Trail. For quiet time, there are many secluded spots on the property where you can just relax and listen to the sounds of nature.

 

SWIMMING & PLAYING IN THE WATER

Kids of all ages (and pets) can get wet in any of our streams including those right on your camping site.  You and your family can also hike to the middle part of the 200 foot waterfall where guests can get in and under a waterfall (wow! - just like Pedro in the photo).  Also, for deeper water swimming, the old YMCA's "refrigerator" swimming pond is located behind our main lodge.

 

DAILY FARM TOUR & ANIMAL FEEDING 

Enota also operates as a certified organic farm and has many family friendly animals (chickens, bunnies, goats, cows, mini horses, and more) on our farm.  Adults and children are welcome to help with our daily feedings.  The duck pond in front of the lodge is extremely popular and everyone has fun feeding the ducks. 


Help feed the animals - fun for the kids!  Meet at the farm at 4:00 p.m. - April, May, August, September Saturdays | June, July, October Daily

 

GARDENING & SUSTAINABILITY EDUCATION

helping in the gardenAs part of Enota charter, we are also an educational and charitable facility and offer classes to groups.  Adults and children can visit our organic garden, hydroelectric power plant, Cherokee ceremonial area and animal sanctuary to learn more about the heritage of this land and sustainability.  

 

TROUT FISHING

Enota's stocked trout pond is a great place for the kids to catch a fish or to catch dinner.  We can supply you with the poles and no license is required.  This is a catch and keep pond only with everything you catch - the greater of $7.00 per pound or per fish .  Stocked with about 500 trout averaging 1.25 pounds.

Another way to fish is in the National Forest adjoining Enota's property.  The state stocks the creek running along Road 180 and a Georgia license is required.

 

DAY PASSES & SCHOOL FIELD TRIPS

All activities are available to registered overnight guests.  For those families and individuals not staying with us, day passes are available.  Day passes are priced at $10 per adult or teen and $5 per child under the age of 13.  Pets are welcome at $5.  Day passes allow the use of the property for the day to include hiking trails, visiting the waterfalls, playground area with trampolines, picnic area and outdoor kitchen, trout fishing, daily farm tours and animal feedings, and any other events we may have for the day.

As a non-profit conservation and educational facility, Enota also hosts school field trips.  With at least 25 students, pricing is $15 per adult or teen and $10 per child 12 years and younger.  All Enota activities are available to students and as part of the field trip program, Enota educators will provide an in-depth, hands-on and fun educational experience at the organic farm and garden.  Click on the videos below to see some clips from recent school field trips.
