Activities

Hiking

The park is a great place for a hike! See the Trails page for more information.

While camping in the park, take advantage of the recreation opportunities offered by this unique bay lake. Relax along the lakeshore among beautiful cypress trees - some of which sprouted more than 400 years ago.

Swimming

A pier more than 500 feet long extends into the lake providing a perfect place for swimming and sunning. Swimming is permitted only for group campers and only in the designated area. Lifeguards are not provided; group leaders must provide swimming supervision.

Boating

Canoes are located onsite for group campers only. Visitors can bring their own watercraft (electric motors only) or canoes/kayaks. All personal watercraft must be washed or cleaned before launching into the lake.

Fishing

Though fish populations are low due to the acidity of the water, the lake has a population of yellow perch and chain pickerel ready to provide a challenge for anglers. Fishing is permitted from the pier and watercraft during open park hours. N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission regulations are enforced.
