Lake Norman

Lake Norman is the largest lake in the greater Charlotte area and one of the largest man-made lakes in NC. Created in 1959 by Duke Power, Lake Norman, and the city’s other lakes help provide the city of Charlotte with hydroelectric power. They’re also one of the biggest draws to the area, offering boating, water skiing, waterfront dining, and year-round recreational activities!

With its pristine natural beauty, Lake Norman provides a serene setting while offering easy access to all the amenities of Charlotte. With over 500 miles of shoreline, the 34-mile-long lake encompasses over 32,000 acres and provides incredible views for waterfront homes and condos along its shores. The lake area is well-equipped with docks, marinas, launches, restaurants, and shopping areas. Many have developed in just the last decade or two. With no horsepower or speed limits on the lake, you will see everything from powerboats to pontoons, kayaks to canoes. And don’t forget that early morning on Lake Norman is a fisherman’s paradise! Whether you love boating, swimming, water skiing, rowing, wakeboarding, sailing, or fishing, Lake Norman offers something for everyone. It’s even home to Charlotte’s only beach.

Lake Norman provides the foundation for several of the area’s fastest-growing towns and cities. Cities like Huntersville, Davidson, Mooresville, and Cornelius have experienced unprecedented growth in recent years thanks to easy highway access to Charlotte and the outward expansion of the area’s population. Homes here range from European-style mansions to Lake Norman waterfront homes to two-bedroom condos and townhomes. Living near the lake is still incredibly affordable compared to many other major metropolitan areas.
