  • I decided on a last minute trip to Sandling beach recreational area after coming to NC from NY with my kids. The area itself is nice, however the water was very green (I understand it’s a lake) and...

  • Beautiful lake with natural shorelines. Renteda pontoon from Motor-Boatin', LLC and they launched the boat for us. What a great experience.

  • Out 1st trip here and wow! Very nice, clean campground. All sites in our loop (3, site 102) are very large with a lot of space between sites. You're in the woods which definitely helps keep things cooler. No problem navigating through or getting our 35' TT parked with an F250 that has an 8' bed. Haven't noticed any bug issues either. An easy 58 minute cruise from Burlington NC. If you haven't been here, give it try, you won't be disappointed.
  • This park is a hidden gem 💎 for sure. Plenty of space and covered areas to hold picnics and other functions. Bell shoreline of man-made lake. Check out my pictures and follow me. We had a family gathering there. There were plenty of Rangers driving through out park to keep patrons protected. Check out my pic's too! Ohh yeah, I even caught a snapshot of a Peacock too!
