Black Mountain is the “Front Porch of Western North Carolina”

Outdoor recreation is one of Black Mountain's hallmarks and nearby fishing holes abound. Just north of town, the 10-acre Lake Tomahawk and its bankside walkways are a favorite spot for a stroll, fishing off the peer, or a non-motorized boat ride. Several local summer camps are some of the most long-established in the area.
