Recreational Activities

Lake Norman offers a variety of Recreational activities appropriate for all ages. 

For the active family:  the U.S. National White Water Center is the perfect option. Activities include white water rafting, rock climbing, rope courses, hiking, biking trails, and more! They also have a great selection of local beers on tap! Speaking of beers, have you looked into a booze cruise with Charlotte Cycle boats? – This activity is adults only.

For a relaxing beach day: Ramsey creek is a popular spot for a picnic in the park and then hitting the beach. Afterwords, take the family out to a beautiful waterfront dinner on Lake Norman.

For the Children: Do they like animals? Take them to the Lazy 5 Ranch or the Zootastic Park of Lake Norman! If you are looking for a day trip further into town, check out the NASCAR Hall of Fame or the Discovery place. If you need local advise, we have our list ready.

As for golf, we’ve listed a mix of public and private courses. If you need further clarification on any activity or recommendations, contact us
