This lake is a beautiful 8 square mile lake having a shoreline of 115 miles.
If you have a boat, Fish Tales Marina & Grille is a fine marina. A tour to Morrow Mountain State Park when you're here at Badin Lake is a good idea, and why not camp at Arrowhead while you're here at Badin Lake. The close by category I-II, 17.2-mile-long Route 1301 to Morrow Mountain State Park sector of whitewater on Uwharrie River is loads of fun. The skilled whitewater paddlers
should perhaps stay away from this bit of Uwharrie River. Whitewater rapids are risky matters, so you have to check current conditions in advance of a trip.
