Fingerlake over looks Fontana Lake and provides access for swimming. Several Nantahala River Outfitters that offer kayak and canoe lessons use Fingerlake for access to Fontana Lake. The area has parking, picnic tables and a vault toilet. Keep in mind that all freshwater swimming sites are "swim at your own risk." There are no lifeguards. Directions: As you head out of Bryson City on US 74 toward Almond, Stay right on 28. Fingerlake is on the left about 2 miles.
