Lake Norman - Picnic Areas
The Lake Norman State Park offers picnic tables in 3 areas. 2 are near the swimming area and another at the old swimming area. The picnic area near the old swimming area is not suggested at this time due to the construction of the new Visitors Center.
The Picnic Tables are available on a first come basis with no reservation needed. But the best spots go fast! Most have a grill near the table and are in wooded areas. Trash cans are available but not really close. Rest Rooms are also available at all 3 sites but the ones near the construction of the new Visitors Center may be closed.

- Mountain Biking
