Boating is a popular pastime at Lake Waccamaw. There is no boat access in the park, but two free public boat launch areas are available nearby. One is maintained by the NC Wildlife Resources Commission (WRC) while the other is operated by Lake Waccamaw State Park. Powerboats and sailboats may be launched from the boat ramps, but parking is limited. The waters of Lake Waccamaw are park property and all park rules apply.
Picnic tables and grills are conveniently placed beneath tall longleaf pines and turkey oaks draped with Spanish moss. Drinking water and restrooms are nearby. The picnic area and the restrooms, as well as some picnic tables, are accessible for persons with disabilities.
