Singletary Lake State Park

Singletary Lake State Park is open to the public for hiking, fishing, paddling and picnicking. The park also welcomes groups of 20 or more to enjoy camping, retreats and environmental education in the unique Carolina bay lakes region and within the 35,975-acre Bladen Lakes State Forest. Group campers should make reservations by contacting park staff well in advance of your visit. Two separate camps offer dormitory-style cabins, modern restrooms and mess hall. Visitors can embark on a learning adventure to discover the wonders of the Carolina bay ecosystem, and campers can swim in the lake’s waters from a 500-foot pier. Bay Tree Lake State Natural Area is also a part of Singletary Lake State Park, and is an easy 13-mile drive north of the park. Visitors may hike the natural area or register with the park office for vehicle access.

Singletary Lake State Park is the managing office for pier and buoy permits and all state lake regulations for White Lake and Bay Tree Lake. Pier and buoy registration and questions may be directed to the park office.
