“Bring your wallet”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2012

I would like Lake Norman better if it wasn't taken over by rich people. There is very little public access and few bargains to be had in the area.

“Beautiful Lake!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2012

If you can afford to rent a boat, Lake Norman is a great place to explore. It is lined with mostly large homes, and public access is a little tricky to find (Lake Norman State Park and a handful of county parks).

“Beautiful big lake”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2011

The water is crystal clear and warms quickly in the Spring. Not many beaches available. Duke State Park is very nice and allows camping and hiking with boat ramps.
