While you’re staying in Spring Lake, don’t forget about all of the hidden gems you can find to explore and keep you busy. Our town is small, but that doesn’t mean we are lacking in things to do; whether you love the outdoors, history, or enjoying family time, we have plenty of fun to keep you entertained.
Don’t forget to check out the Sandhills Farmers’ Market on Chapel Hill Road. You can buy fresh produce, flowers, and herbs, directly from the hard-working people who grow them. Plus, you can learn about old home remedies that you can still use. It’s open every Saturday from 9am to 2pm, and every second Saturday of the month they offer free activities for kids.
Spring Lake is also the perfect launching point to Fort Bragg, which is the largest Army installation in the country. Fort Bragg hosts over 50,000 military personnel, and is also home of the revered 82nd Airborne Division, and the famed Golden Knights parachute team. Here, visitors can explore one of the many military-themed Cultural Heritage trails, military museums, or even catch some Airborne action, as long as you visit during a jump that’s open to the public.
Another great activity you may want to check is out clay target shooting. If you’ve never tried it, now is the perfect opportunity. At the Spring Lake Clay Target Center, you can practice your aim – or try to improve your current one.
For a little change of pace, there’s the Lower Little River, which runs its way through Spring Lake. Head to Spring Lake Outpost to kayak, canoe, and even tube down the river and enjoy rippling waters, snow white sand and nature’s songs as you float through the woods.
Did you know Spring Lake also has a championship golf course designed by Davis Love III? It was rated 4.5 stars by Golf Digest, which puts it up against some of the finest courses in the country. There’s 17 other courses in Cumberland County, making our area a secret haven for golf enthusiasts.
While Spring Lake is known for being a town beside Fort Bragg, that is definitely not all we are. Take the time to see what we have to offer, and make some incredible memories.
