The Great Lakes of North Carolina

Record #:
The author’s discussion of NC lakes reflected their importance as a source of recreation such as fishing and swimming, as well as backdrops for camping and picnicking. Examples were size (the Kerr Reservoir, fifty thousand acres), type (natural lakes are only in the Coastal Plain), and depth (Mattamuskeet, its greatest depth five feet). Discussed also were eastern lakes’ three groupings (peninsula between Pamlico River and Albemarle Sound; Pocosin slough between New Bern and Bogue Sound; in Columbus and Bladen county).
