Lake Fun & Activities
From wake-boarding and rowing to fishing and sailing, Lake Norman is a true water sports paradise. With so many acres and miles of shoreline open to the public, the best way to see the lake is by boat. Several marinas grace the shores of Lake Norman, providing boat launches, boat rentals, boat repairs, and gas stops for when you need to refuel. With no horsepower or speed limit on Lake Norman, power boats, bass boats, sailboats, and pontoons share the sparkling waters with kayaks, canoes, paddleboarders and even the occasional paddle boat.
