Dates for 2019: Sept. 27th- 29th, 2019


Welcome to Furry Takeover, a relaxed camping Style Event held in the Smoky Mountains at the Fontana Dam Resort.  There is 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 event's are spread throughout the resort.
