The Natural Swimming Hole At Tucker Lake In North Carolina Will Take You Back To The Good Ole Days
Summertime is synonymous with family time. For many, the memories of summer vacations taken decades ago and the lingering memories of fun-filled adventures with siblings, parents, and extended family are rekindled each summer. If you want to revisit the era before enormous (and expensive) waterparks dotted the landscape in North Carolina, then plan a day trip over to Benson (near the intersection of I-95 and I-40) for a day spent in a natural swimming hole that’ll take you back to the good old days.
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/
Free parking is available, as well as a special, shaded parking area that costs $2/car. For more information, see this super informational page on the official website for Tucker Lake Recreation in Benson, North Carolina. As a mere point of geographical reference, this natural waterpark is located approximately 30 minutes from Fayetteville, Raleigh, Clinton, Clayton, and Smithfield.
