At Lake Norman State Park, fun is just a matter of scale. On one hand, there's the largest man-made lake in the state, Lake Norman. When filled to capacity, its surface area is 32,510 acres with a shoreline of 520 miles and a main channel 34 miles in length -- thus its nickname, the "Inland Sea." Thirteen miles of the shoreline are in the state park, which provides boating access, fishing and a swimming beach. Boat rentals have been expanded to include kayaks and stand-up paddleboarding.

On another hand, the park boasts its own 33-acre lake. And with hiking and biking trails, picnic areas, interpretive programs and campgrounds, there's more to Lake Norman State Park than merely water.
