I am trailering my SeaDoo up from Florida this weekend and will be staying near Lake Nantahala. Looks like they have 1 boat ramp. It looks like
Lake Santeela and Fontana are good candidates for some riding.

Anyone on the board have experience here or frequent them?

I see where a New Zealand firm is offering Jet Boat rides on Fontana.
Check out their video (and accents) on the video link at bottom right.

I'm used to 88 degree water, last time I rafted Nantahala it was like 49 degrees in the summer!
