Lake Fun & Activities

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, rentals, repairs, and gas stops to refuel. With no horsepower or speed limit on Lake Norman, boats and pontoons share the glistening waters with kayaks, canoes and paddleboarders.

For your safety, life jackets are required for ALL boats and jet skis.
