John C. Campbell Folk School is at 1 Folk School Rd. The school's main office on Brasstown Road provides maps outlining self-guiding walking tours. Visitors can observe students at work in a variety of classes, including blacksmithing, pottery, woodworking, weaving, quilting and basketry. Self-guiding nature trails traverse the 300-acre campus; an on-site history center with photographs, crafts and exhibits documents the school's heritage.
Concerts and dance programs are held throughout the year.
