Lake Norman Real EstateIf you love fishing, sailing, skiing, wakeboarding or generally just love being on or around the water, Lake Norman is for you. Created in the early 60’s as part of the Cowans Ford Dam construction project led by Duke Energy, Lake Norman is the largest manmade body of fresh water located in North Carolina. All told, it has over 520 miles of shoreline, covers over 50 miles of open water – even an Interstate (I-77) runs across it. Indeed, Lake Norman is as beautiful and busting as it is enormous.
Year round, local residents take advantage of this man made beauty in a variety of ways. There are a number of marinas and yacht clubs on and around the lake, including Lake Norman Yacht Club which hosts a number of South Atlantic Yacht Racing Association races throughout the year. Davidson College, which is located on the southeastern edge of Lake Norman, owns and operates a "Lake Campus" for students. Lake Norman State Park has two bank fishing areas and eight public boating access areas along the shoreline; one site is leased to Mecklenburg County and one to Iredell County. And the lake is a fisherman’s delight, containing a treasure trove of popular game fish such as catfish, crappie, bluegill yellow perch, as well as striped, largemouth and white bass. If you are not a hardcore outdoorsman and lacking your own equipment then fret not – from fishing tackle to boats, canoes to paddleboards to jet skis, there are plenty of rental options available to satisfy the weekend warrior.
