Bear Creek Marina is located on Lake James in the little community of Nebo, North Carolina, and is a shared resource of the surrounding cities of Marion and Morganton. Commanding national recognition as one of America's best small cities is nearby Asheville, North Carolina.
Bear Creek Marina hosts a variety of things to enjoy. You can go water skiing, sailing, fishing, jet skiing or simply relaxing. Every direction reveals a breathtaking vista of surrounding mountains--Table Rock, Grandfather Mountain, and Hawksbill. Amenities include tennis courts, beach area on Lake James, and three fishing ponds (no license required). The Marina includes a full service bar and grill, clean restrooms and an on-site store for supplies.
We offer a lake front on-site log cabin and camp sites which include water and septic. Located only a short distance from the many activities Western North Carolina has to offer this is the perfect spot for a weekend get-a-away or family vacation. The Blue Ridge Parkway, Biltmore House, Asheville's rich cultural influence, and Grandfather Mountain are just a few of the many interesting destinations for any adventure lover.
