Welcome to Furry Takeover, a relaxed camping Style Event held in the Smoky Mountains at the Fontana Dam Resort.  There are tons of things to do around the resort including disc golf, lounging in the lazy river, tennis, putt-putt, tons of hiking trails, and much more.  

Outside the resort just a couple miles away is the Tail of The Dragon, a fun twisty road with no intersecting roads which consist of 318 curves in 11 miles. There are tons of great roads for cruising as well and just checking out the scenery.

There are also tons of absolutely beautiful scenery everywhere you go, from waterfalls, rivers, lakes, and mountains. This event relies heavily on your transportation to get around between events and traveling the wonderful roads around the resort. It is possible to walk to the events but there are lots of hills and the events are spread throughout the resort. 

About Furry Takeover


We are Furry Takeover!

We were established back in Spring 2018 and held our first takeover August 24-26. In 2019, FTO grew in size and numbers to the point that the staff decided to transition the wonderful furry meet into something everyone can get involved with. As always, we are dedicated to making Furry Takeover great for everyone.



We have a wonderful staff, and founder/chairman Kyle Hicks who is working hard to encourage and expand our team.  If you would like to be part of our great team please email us at
