HAYESVILLE, N.C. — Jackrabbit Mountain Recreation Area is located in the Tusquitee Ranger District of the Nantahala National Forest. The Recreation Area is on a wooded peninsula of scenic 6,950-acre Lake Chatuge, with a backdrop of high mountain peaks.
Lake Chatuge is touted as the crown jewel of Tennessee Valley Authority’s system of lakes and is an impoundment of the Hiwassee River. Similar to a Swiss alpine lake setting, the lake is filled with a bounty of fish, from spotted, white and striped bass to catfish, crappie and sunfish.
Some of the sites and infrastructure within the campground were updated in recent years. There are no water or electric hookup sites. There are hot showers and drinking water available in each camping loop.
