Lake Norman CampingLake Norman camping can be an absolute blast for the entire family! The beach, nature, and lake itself all make it such a great place to get away from the fast pace of everyday life. There are a number of unique campgrounds in the area, each with various advantages to choose from. There is truly something for every camper near Lake Norman; it’s just a question of what you’re looking for.

Lake Norman State Park is probably the most popular campground near the lake. The beach is beautiful. They are never short on lifeguards (who take their jobs very seriously, by the way). That’s an important factor when traveling with kids who are not always aware of their surroundings. The campgrounds themselves are convenient as well, and they are dog-friendly. The state park also has some great hiking and biking trails, so bring those mountain bikes and your hiking equipment with you.

    If you want to go camping but still experience modern features like wi-fi or post offices and banks, Cross Country Campground will be perfect. We went there two years ago and even my reluctant teenage daughter had a blast. The service was irreproachable and will definitely come back again in the near future.
