DID YOU KNOW!….
Lake Norman NC is the largest man-made lake in North Carolina, and is located in the northern part of Mecklenburg County, just 18 miles northwest of Charlotte. This “Inland Sea,” has over 520 miles of beautiful shoreline that extends over four counties – Mecklenburg, Iredell, Catawba and Lincoln. It was created when the Cowans Ford Dam was created on the Catawba River in 1967, and named for Norman Atwater Cocke, the former President of Duke Power, the company that created the lake. Lake Norman is 34 miles long and 8 miles wide and is 130 feet deep at its deepest point. It holds 32,500 surface acres of water. The Lake Norman area actually consists of several small towns and golf communities surrounding the lake and Lake Norman State Park. The towns that share the lake shoreline include Cornelius, Denver, Davidson and Mooresville. Twenty years ago, this area was primarily a weekend retreat, but that changed with the completion of I-77. It is now one of the most rapidly growing and popular areas in North Carolina, and its easily accessed via major interstates. Everyone loves Lake Norman – families, retirees, or couples looking for a romantic weekend retreat. The lake offers everything you’d expect from a lake this size, from power boating and sailing to swimming and fishing. The State Park has camping, hiking, biking trails and more. The golfing boom has taken over the Lake Norman area by storm. You’ll find several championship courses around the lake that offer challenging, affordable golfing at brand-new facilities as well as time-honored ones.
