Located inside Pettigrew State Park. It is a beautiful clear shallow lake. Perfect place to take the kids swimming.

Lake Phelps is a beautiful pocosin lake in eastern North Carolina. There is a public boat landing at the State Park. The lake is a shallow clear water lake that is great for fishing and swimming.
