A Private Mountain Lake Retreat

Camp Lake James is a private recreational club established in 2008 for the Old Wildlife and 1780 communities. In a spectacular mountain setting, Camp Lake James is located 45 minutes east of Asheville and one and half hours west of Charlotte in Nebo, North Carolina. </br></br> An environment free of the fast-paced lifestyle. We treasure creating lifelong memories in a place where life is elegant in its simplicity. Every day is rooted in family traditions, neighbors and friends coming together, and life vibrant with youthful energy. </br></br> Members spend their days kayaking or canoeing on clear mountain waters, cooling off in the pool, or unwinding around a crackling campfire while roasting marshmallows. After a day on the lake, nothing is better than kicking back at the Social Hall and getting a bite to eat at the Canteen.
