The Clearest Lake In North Carolina Is Almost Too Beautiful To Be Real

You may be surprised to learn North Carolina’s clearest, most pristine lake has a natural, white sandy bottom and is slowly fed by artesian springs from deep beneath the earth’s surface. White Lake, located just outside of Elizabethtown, is a sight to behold and is surrounded with resorts, small theme parks, restaurants, boardwalks, and piers – all to serve the 200,000 tourists that flock to the lake each summer.
