Lake Norman, the largest man-made lake in the Carolinas, is also THE place to go to have fun in the sun! Lake Norman, created by Duke Energy in 1963, has 520 miles of coastline and is over 30 miles long. The Lake Norman area is a collection of small towns and communities that surround the lake as well as Lake Norman State Park. Lakeside towns in the area include Mooresville, Cornelius, Huntersville, Denver, Sherrills Ford, Terrell, and Troutman. It is now one of the most popular and rapidly growing areas in North Carolina.
