I was out on the lake the previous Sunday afternoon.

I thought I would share photos of the lake

Below is photos of my favorite park in Mecklenburg County between Huntersville and Charlotte off Mountain Island Lake on Beatties Ford Road.

Latta Plantation Park













Latta Plantation is a very large park with oodles of trails for hiking or mountain biking, fishing, canoe/kayak access, equestrian run and horse trails.
Gorgeous lake views, volleyball, home to Latta Plantation that holds special events, nature museum and location of the Carolina Raptor Center.

HARDLY an honest depiction of the area, try being honest.. Show old downtown mooresville all the shacks, show the ghetto neighborhoods, show the standstill hornedous traffic, it's not all peaches and cream people for some reason this person wanted to make it appear that way. Not that the area is bad but be realisitic

Default Drove around some of these areas

On my recent trip I drove around Huntersville. I saw Wynfield Forest, downtown and the Vermillion development. Vermillion looks like it will be very nice, and right next to the light rail stop. I only found Vermillion by accident because I missed my turn at Old Statesville road.

Wynfield was really pretty driving into it, but I took the wrong direction at the fork in the road. Oops!

I never saw Lake Norman, I must not have been up far enough. But, from Huntersville, I headed over to Mountain Island Lake area which I really liked. I don't recall seeing Latta Plantation park. How do you get into it?

I really like north Charlotte. The scenery is closer to what I'm used to in Michigan with all the trees etc. Great pictures!
