Outdoor Adventures in Spring Lake

If you’ve read our most recent blog post about why you should stay in Spring Lake if you’re visiting Fort Bragg, you know our proximity, hospitality, and restaurant choices can’t be beat! But if you’re looking for some fun in your down time, we’ve got that too! 

Spring Lake is the place to be if you love the outdoors. You’ll be amazed at all of the fun things we have in store. 

  1. Carver’s Creek State Park

Can you believe we have a state park right in our own backyard? Not only does it feature beautiful walking trails, it is also full of history. You can still visit The Rockefeller House, the former estate of James Stillman Rockefeller, the great nephew of John D. Rockefeller. The park also features regular events, from storytimes, to classes, to historical hikes. 

2. Spring Lake Outpost 

Looking for a way to get out on the water? Spring Lake Outpost is your spot if you are interested in kayaking or canoeing. They offer self guided 3 mile trips down the Little River, and include rentals and pick up. You can even canoe at night with their SLO Glow canoe trips. If you love exploring wildlife on the water, you absolutely must give this adventure a try. 

3. Anderson Creek Club Golf Course 

This course was designed by Anderson Love III and is one of the highest rated courses in the Sandhills. Anderson Creek Golf Course features 18 holes and a 10,000 square foot putting green, practice range, chipping area, and sand bunker. If you are a fan of hitting the links, this is a must-visit. 

4. Fort Bragg Clay Target Center 

This target center is one of the largest shotgun shooting facilities in the entire state. Whether you’re a beginner or a pro, this center is accessible for everyone. They also offer basic lessons on trap and skeet shooting. 

On top of these things to try right in town, our key location makes it easy to not only get back and forth to Fort Bragg, but we are also a quick trip to Fayetteville, Raleigh, the beach, and the mountains. Stay with us and see why so many in the veteran and active duty community have chosen to call us “home.”
