Spring Lake shares our love of freedom, which makes it a great base camp for families, visitors and businesses alike. Not to mention there’s a lot of things to do around here. Did you know Spring Lake has a championship golf course designed by David Love III? It was rated 4.5 stars by Golf Digest, which puts it up against some of the finest courses in the country. Plus, there are 17 other golf courses located in and around Cumberland County.
While you’re exploring Spring Lake, be sure to check out the Sandhills Farmer’s Market on Chapel Hill Road. You can buy fresh produce, flowers and herbs straight from the hard-working local people who grow it. Additionally, you can learn more about the old home remedies that you can still use today – turpentine, poke salad and pine top tea. The Market is open every Saturday starting in June and running through October. There are even free kids activities on the second Saturday of each month!
Spring Lake is also a perfect launching point to Fort Bragg, a site you will find on many of the military-themed Cultural Heritage Trails available on our website. Fort Bragg hosts over 45,000 military personnel and is the proud home of the revered 82nd Airborne Division and the famed Golden Knights parachute team.
If you have never tried shooting clay targets before, then you definitely need to mark it off your bucket list! There are few things as satisfying as watching them explode when you land a hit. At the Spring Lake clay Target Center, you can practice your aim – or try to develop a new one.
If you are looking for a little change of pace, why not check out the Lower Little River, which runs its way through the town of Spring Lake? Bring your kayak or canoe and enjoy rippling waters, snow white sand and nature’s songs as you peacefully float through the woods.
When your friends and family come for a visit, make Spring Lake hotels the base camp for all your excursions. For more information on what to do and where to stay in Spring Lake, go to www.VisitFayettevilleNC.com.
