    A pretty lake

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This was a very pleasant spot in which to break our drive between Charlotte and the Blue Ridge Mountains. It’s a man-made lake, which National Geographic has called one of the most beautiful in the world. Set at the foot of Chimney Rock in Hickory Nut Gorge the lake is long and not very wide. Many people appeared to have lovely homes on the shores, complete with boathouses, and it’s very much a recreational stretch of water – fishing, boating etc. We simply stopped to stretch our legs with a short walk and take some photos, though it would also make a great picnic place. You can also do boat tours (see website below), swim or simply relax on the beach.
