Kayaking in North Carolina

Kayaking is one of the most popular water sports in North Carolina. There are several places to go kayaking in North Carolina. The most popular place is Lake Wylie. Lake Wylie is located in the western part of the state. The lake is approximately two miles long and about a quarter mile wide. It is also known as Lake Wylie State Park. This lake was formed by the construction of the Wylie Dam. The dam was built between 1955 and 1957. The dam is over 800 feet high.

The lake has a maximum depth of about 45 feet. There are three islands in the lake. These islands are called The Pines, The Point, and The Tops. The Pines Island is the largest island in the lake. It is a small island that is located near the dam. The Pines Island is approximately 2.5 acres. The Point Island is a little smaller than the Pines Island. It is located in the middle of the lake. The Tops Island is the smallest of the three islands. It is only about half an acre. There is a boat launch ramp on this island. There is also a campground on the island..
