Beautiful setting in the Piedmont of North Carolina. The park offers, boating, swimming, hiking and biking.

The park has about 15 miles of trails with different levels of difficulties . Hiked the Lake Channel Trail  along the lake with good views of the lake and the Blue Ridge Mountains.  Hiked the Mill's creek trail which is nicely shaded and offers good views of the lake and the Linville Gorge area. Hiked the Sandy Cliffs overlook trail which has very good views of the lake. I was there during a total solar eclipse which was fantastic.
