Lake Norman is an “inland sea” with 520 miles of shoreline and a surface area of more than 32,475 acres in parts of four North Carolina counties. It is the largest manmade lake in our state.

Named after former Duke Power president Norman Cocke, Lake Norman is nearly as large as the other 10 lakes on the Catawba combined.

Duke partnered with the state in the establishment of the Lake Norman State Park. In addition, Duke has built two bank fishing areas and eight public boating access areas along the shoreline. One site is leased to Mecklenburg County and one to Iredell County. Visit our website for more information.
