The Stunning Sunrises At Badin Lake In North Carolina Are Worth Waking Up Early For

Badin Lake was created in 1917 when the Yadkin-Pee Dee River was dammed. With 115 miles of beautiful shoreline and warm waters in the summer, this lake is a truly wonderful place to spend the day…but an even better place to watch the sunrise!

Badin Lake is a favorite spot for fishing, hiking, camping, and hunting, but one of the best ways to explore this beautiful area is by kayak. There is a put in at the Old Whitney boat landing in New London, so grab a paddle (and a camera) and hit the water!

These photos were taken by Seth Myers during a morning paddle on Badin Lake. Although the fish weren’t biting, it’s easy to see why this sunrise was worth waking up early for!

Seth summed it up pretty perfectly: “Someone once asked about my favorite time of day. My response: watching the world wake up.”

Thank you to Seth Myers for sharing these beautiful photos with us! To see more of his stunning shots, check out this collection from a relaxing float down the Uwharrie River!
