Things to Do


Whether you come with your family or with a group of colleagues, you will enjoy the fellowship and recreation that Lake Junaluska Conference and Retreat Center has to offer. Gather the kids for a stroll around the lake and revel in our peaceful mountain setting. Along the way you will experience the beauty of the Rose Walk, the tranquility of the Frances Asbury Trail as well as our spectacular butterfly garden and waterfall. While you are here, relax poolside and enjoy the beautiful views from our aquatic center, which also includes canoes, kayaks and paddleboard rentals for further exploration of our 200-acre lake.

Along with our spectacular grounds and lovely vistas, be sure to take advantage of our many activities during your stay. Our on-site 18-hole golf course is perfect for a tournament with colleagues or just a round with your friends. Or, get competitive with a game of tennis, pickleball, basketball, sand volleyball, mini golf or shuffle board. All of these activities are located on-site, making group logistics and organization easy and fun.
