Pettigrew State Park In North Carolina Is A Big Secluded Treasure
If you’re looking for a place to relax and unwind, then you certainly have a wealth of places to choose from in North Carolina. But if you’re looking for a big secluded treasure, then place yourself along the shady shores of Lake Phelps. While the Tar Heel State has a number of other lakes like Lake Norman, Lake Glenville, and Lake Lure that are wildly popular, Lake Phelps, on the contrary, is very underrated as a family destination. This makes it a perfect place for a day trip, a weekend, or a longer stay.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
If you’re already putting some thought into places you’ll go when it’s safe to explore North Carolina again, then Pettigrew State Park is definitely one big, secluded gem that’s worthy of a visit.
To stay up to date on the open/close status of Pettigrew State Park, you can visit the official website and check for the Status of Park Facilities link. Each NC State Park’s status during these uncertain times is different. As of now, the park is open, but the office, restrooms, and swimming pier are not. Of course, we’re all hoping this will change as soon as it’s safe to return to normal status.
