With more than 500 miles of shoreline, Lake Norman is the largest manmade lake in North Carolina. Whether you like the speed of a jet ski or prefer to take a more leisurely pace, you can find a watersport that suits your mood on Lake Norman.
Spend the day at Lake Norman State Park, which offers year-round boating, fishing, camping, hiking and mountain bike trails. You can rent Stand Up Paddleboards, kayaks and canoes to enjoy the beautiful shoreline around the park. There’s also a swim area with a 125-yard-long sand beach that’s open from April to October.
If you want to enjoy other areas of the lake, look into water toy rentals. You can rent paddleboards, kayaks, jet skis, and boats for partial or full days out on the lake. For a truly unique experience, schedule a wakeboarding lesson with a professional wakeboarder at STP Wake or Ride LKN.
