There is bouldering and kayaking available close to the dam. Says Informant
So many amusing things to do here at Lake Nicol, too splendid to be true. Here at Lake Nicol you'll most likely meet some folks from Northport. Bob's Campground and Marina is a pleasant local campground, and the charming marina of Eagle Cove Marina & Restaurant is a perfect spot to leave dry land behind. Meetinghouse Branch is close to Lake Nicol and is always a pleasure to
take a look at; if you would like to get out on the water, Blue Heron Marina is close by. This lake is so wonderful. While you're here at Lake Nicol and you want to go for a horse ride, you can stop at Ladybug Farm.
