With more than 500 miles of shoreline, Lake Norman is the largest manmade lake in North Carolina. The pleasantly warm days of fall are perfect for exploring secluded coves and taking in the scenery.
One of the best ways to see the lake at a leisurely pace is by paddleboard. Don’t have one of your own? Rent one at one of the rental shops around the lake. Or if you want to speed things up a bit and explore a larger area, rent a boat or jet ski for the day. Check out all the rental options. Pack a picnic for the day or visit one of our lakefront restaurants for a bite.
You can also hire a fishing guide to help you navigate the great fishing spots on Lake Norman. For a truly unique experience, schedule a wakeboarding or wakesurfing lesson with a professional wakeboarder at Ride LKN Wake & Surf School or Stephen Pierce Wake.
