Visit Lake Norman

The newly redesigned gift shop at our visitor center in Cornelius is your go-to spot to find Lake Norman apparel, novelties, gifts and more! We offer a variety of shirts, sweatshirts, hats, keychains/stickers, drinkware, books, and even photography. We've recently expanded our product line just in time for the holidays, with the return of classic items like our Navy Crewneck and new additions like our Yellow Circle Map T-Shirt! Also, we've partnered with LKN Local, an apparel company in Mooresville, to provide some of their most popular items like their Striped Terry Hoodie and Embroidered 1/4 Zip Fleece.

Not only have we improved our selection of Lake Norman apparel, but we also have added many new novelties and gift items which are perfect for the holidays. Our new LN Wine Thermoses or Wooden Bottle Opener would make great additions to any household, and our new LKN Ball Ornaments can add some Southern charm to the tree this year. We provide all of our products on our online store, so you can now browse all of our merchandise and have them shipped to your home or picked up at the visitor center. Our visitor center is open Monday – Friday 9 am-5 pm so come by and say hello!
