Lake Norman, the largest man-made lake in the Carolinas, is the place for fun in the sun! Created in 1963 by Duke Energy, Lake Norman is 34 miles long with 520 miles of shoreline. The area is separated by four different counties, Iredell County, Catawba County, Mecklenburg County and Lincoln County. Nestled on the banks of beautiful Lake Norman are the towns of Cornelius, Davidson, Huntersville, Denver, Mooresville, Sherrills Ford and Troutman. These unique towns present a wide array of leisure amenities for visitors and guests including upscale shopping, restaurants, NASCAR, fishing and other water activities. From Lake Norman, you may enjoy the ease of traveling anywhere in the state, being just north of Charlotte, while the mountains and coast are a short drive away. Whatever your desire, find it at the Lakeside of Charlotte.
