TOPTON, N.C. – In order to facilitate work for site enhancements, Duke Energy will temporarily close the Big Choga Access Area on Lake Nantahala beginning May 4.

Improvements to the Big Choga Access Area including paving the parking lot and constructing an accessible vault toilet. The boat ramp will be closed to facilitate the construction activities.
