Boating - Non-Motorized

Visit the lakes and rivers in North Carolina’s National Forest to launch your watercraft, fish, swim or just enjoy the scenery and wildlife from the shorelines.  Many launches designed for motorized watercraft are managed cooperatively between the Forest Service and the North Carolina Wildlife Resource Commission.
