Lake Norman’s Most Popular Boating Experiences

There are so many great things to do while you are on a Lake Norman boat rental. Lake boating is usually more relaxing than ocean boating because the water is much calmer. Some popular Lake Norman boat rental experiences might include these three activities.

Try Water Skiing
Water skiing is a fun activity to include on your Lake Norman boat rental. You may want to learn how to water ski from an experienced professional before you decide to hit the water on your own.

Do Some Wakeboarding
On your Lake Norman boat rental, you’ll find that wakeboards are especially useful accessories for the younger ones who may not know how to ski, but still want to be pulled along behind the boat.

Inflatable Rafts and Tubes
With inflatable rafts and tubes, your kids can be towed along or they can simply float around your boat leisurely. Especially if you allow your kids to invite a few friends, they might get more involved in other parts of the boat day too.

Lake Norman’s Best Bodies of Water

Visit Lake Norman State Park

Visit Lake Norman State Park for the hiking and swimming areas. Lake Norman State Park has a roped off area that is ideal for swimming. Sunbathe on the long sandy beach and then get your feet wet in the cool, clear water.

Explore the Lake’s Mysteries

Visitors to Lake Norman have claimed to have seen an unusual creature locally known as a wampus cat, a cougar-like animal from American folklore. There have also been several UFO sightings in the area, as well as rumors of monster-sized catfish in the lake. Bring along some rods and try your luck at fishing from your Lake Norman boat rental.

Take in Some Local History

While sailing along on your Lake Norman boat rental, you can easily visit the Cowan’s Ford Dam, where a battle was fought during the Revolutionary War in almost the exact spot where the dam is today.
