At Lake Norman State Park, fun is just a matter of scale. On one hand, there’s the largest manmade lake in the state, Lake Norman. When filled to capacity, its surface area is 32,510 acres with a shoreline of 520 miles and a main channel 34 miles in length thus its nickname, the “Inland Sea.” Thirteen miles of the shoreline are in the state park, which provides boating access.
On another hand, the park boasts its own 33-acre lake where fishing and boating are enjoyed. And with hiking and biking trails, picnic areas, interpretive programs and campgrounds, there’s more to Lake Norman State Park than merely water.
Family Tent/Trailer Camping: Tent pads, picnic tables and grills are available at 33 sites. Occupancy is limited to one family or six people per site. Park gates are locked at the posted closing hours. Campers may not leave the park after closing or before 8 a.m. except in an emergency. The Family Campground is open from March 15th through November 30th.
Group Tent Camping: No more than 25 people are permitted on each site. Drinking water and restrooms are available nearby; picnic tables and a fire ring are provided at each site. The Group Campground is open from April through November.
