Robbinsville is the county seat for Graham County, which is located in the far reaches of North Carolina's Appalachian Mountain region, near the Tennessee border. Many places boast of being "the best kept secret," but Robbinsville is truly one of North Carolina's hidden gems. This small village sits in a region of some of the highest and most remote mountains east of the Mississippi, with hundreds of thousands of acres of forested wilderness, crystal clear mountain streams, breathtaking views and recreational opportunities. Just a few of the places near Robbinsville to explore are the Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest, the Nantahala National Forest, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, and the Slickrock Creek Wilderness Area. A full two-thirds of Graham County is National Forest. It doesn't get much better than this for outdoor enthusiasts. Enjoy miles of hiking trails, mountain biking, boating, nature photography, whitewater rafting, canoeing, camping, lake fishing or fly-fishing. The trout streams near Robbinsville have earned a national reputation. Robbinsville is also just a short drive to the Cherohala Skyway, Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, Cherokee Indian Reservation and Casino, and the Snowbird Backcountry Area. Shop at the Stecoah Valley Center for local arts and crafts, and enjoy live Appalachian music every Saturday night throughout the summer. Accommodations vary as widely as the activities, with family hotels and motels, bed and breakfasts, rustic cabins and luxury vacation homes.
