With more than 500 miles of shoreline, Lake Norman is the largest manmade lake in North Carolina. It’s easy to find a secluded cove where you can spend the day with your family and enjoy the natural social distancing that happens on the water.
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. You can rent paddleboards, kayaks, jet skis, and boats for partial or full days out on the lake from one of the many rental shops around the area. Families love renting Stand Up Paddleboards to explore the shorelines. Pack a picnic lunch and make a whole day of it! You can also hire a fishing guide to help you navigate the great fishing spots on Lake Norman. For a truly unique experience, schedule a wakeboarding or wakesurfing lesson with a professional wakeboarder at Ride LKN Wake & Surf School or Stephen Pierce Wake.
