  1. Location

Location is everything! Fort Bragg is the largest Army base in the entire country, and that means lots of traffic. You could spend your day waiting in traffic, or you could stay in Spring Lake. We are located just outside of the gate, which means you can reach your destination in just minutes. In fact, our location makes us a popular lunchtime choice for soldiers who are stationed here, since they know they can get on and off post quickly.

2. Choices

We are a small town, but we have big choices. With seven hotels just outside of Fort Bragg, you have lots of great choices when it comes to where you stay, including 5 and 4.5 star hotels. Stay at a nationally recognized brand, or a locally owned spot, at a large hotel, or a smaller one. Spring Lake means you have the decision in your hands.

3. Things to Do

Looking for something to do during your down time? You don’t have to look far in Spring Lake. We are especially proud of being a paradise for nature lovers!

Head over to the Fort Bragg Clay Target Center to practice your shot, or to the Anderson Creek Golf Course to practice your swing. We are also home to parks, a play center, a farmers market, and more!

Spring Lake has the ultimate small town feeling. You’ll love our friendly demeanor and true Southern hospitality.
