Clay County is a quiet community tucked away in the southwestern corner of North Carolina where nature's beauty abounds. That beauty lies nearly unchanged. Located in the Mountains, just over the state line from Hiawassee GA, it's a nature lover's paradise. Outdoor activities are plentiful, and available most of the year. Lake Chatuge offers boating, fishing, kayaking and swimming. There are many places to camp in tents and RV's but even with all of this it's never overcrowded.

The Hiwassee River flows into and out of Lake Chatuge. Controlled bHiwassee River Hayesville NC, Upstream in Riverbendy the TVA, water releases are used to generate electricity, but also to preserve the health of the river itself. Fly fishing is a favorite past time. Rainbow's, Brown's and Brook trout can be caught all year. I mostly catch Rainbow Trout so I assume there are more of those!! The Hiwassee River also offers tubing, kayaking and canoeing. Hiking, bicycling, photography, horseback riding and motorcycling are also popular here. The "Tail of the Dragon" is not far away for motorcycle enthusiasts. The Blue Ridge Parkway is another great ride both for cars and motorcycles.
