Fontana Village

For over 8 years now, Fontana Village has served as Ground Zero for Miatas at the Gap. We fill the village each year with Miatas and friends in lodging that runs from simple campsites and RV hookups to hotel style rooms in the Main Lodge to a variety of private cabins. All vendors and tables are set up in the General Store parking lot across from the pool and ball fields. There are always a number of pre-planned events that stage in the General Store lot or other locations in the village and surrounding areas. These events can range from sightseeing tours to spirited canyon drives and everything in between. On Saturday afternoon, the vendor area is where the Graham County Tourism Board and Fontana Tourism Development Association provide a FREE LUNCH and Moss Motors provides FREE ICE CREAM after the Dam(n) Photo. Attendees gather here again Saturday Evening to celebrate the end of another great gathering with the charity raffle and the Beer & Wine Swap. Every year we are able to set aside a block of cabins, camping spots, and lodge rooms that are only available to our group. This block, except for the camping spots, is pre-negotiated at a special discount rate that is only available for attendees of MATG. To take advantage of these rates, you must register directly by phone and tell them you’re with the Miatas at the Gap group. Fontana Village also houses one of the few bars in the area, multiple restaurants, the General Store for all of your basic needs, and the Pit Stop where you can refill the gas tank, rehydrate and shop for some area memorabilia
