We were there a couple of months ago, we camped there in our 43' MH.
The road coming in is narrow, but a good 2 lanes wide, it is only the last ten miles that you just need to be careful and take it easy.

The campground is right at the foot of the dam and only has about 6 or 8 sites with 30 amp electricity and water. No sewer hook up, but they have a dump station by the entrance road. Very quite and nice view beside the river.

You need to check in at the main lodge about a mile or two up the road before setting up.

Ahhh... Lake Fontana. In 1991 my three sons and I spent 6 days hiking along the Appalachian Trail and the shores of Lake Fontana. A beautiful lake and one of our all time favorite trips.

If you want full hookups, there's a beautiful little campground named Teaberry Hill that's just off of NC28 about 18-miles before you get to Fontana Village (has a Robbinsville address - on Upper Sawyer Creek Rd.). You only have a mile or two of the twistie part of NC28 to navigate to get there. We stayed there 6-nights at the end of April for the "MINI's on the Dragon" event and will definitely be back. It's small - only a few sites and no bathhouse, but every site was nicely laid out in beautiful countryside. Owners are do-it-all folks and wonderful people. No cellphone service, but decent wifi and if your sat dish doesn't have a view (some sites do and some don't) the owner will hook you up to one of his.

Let me know if more questions.

If you are going all the way to Fontana Village to camp at their campground at the bottom of the dam I would check it out a little closer. We use to stay there 2x a year until 2004 and it was not the best. The power there is only 30 amps and if you can get 105 volts you will be lucky. The grass was always needing cutting and if it had been raining you might get stuck in your campsite. The best spots are the ones close to the bath house which was kept clean. To dump your tanks you had to go out the park turn around and come back in dump then go to campground turn around and then head out. There is about an8% grade just out the campground about 50 yds to go back up to the village. Just check It out
