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.


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.


Canoes are located onsite for group campers only.  Campers and visitors can bring their own watercraft (limit 10 horsepower) or canoes/kayaks.  All personal watercraft must be washed onsite at the park office before launching into the lake.


Though fish populations are low due to the acidity of the water, the lake has a population of yellow perch ready to provide a challenge for anglers. The public may fish in the lake when the group camps are not in use by obtaining permission from park staff. Fishing is permitted only during park hours. Please conform to the regulations of the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission.
