MOCCASIN CREEK STATE PARK
Known as the park ?where spring spends the summer,? Moccasin Creek is nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains on the shores of lovely 2,800-acre Lake Burton. Despite its mountain location, the park is relatively flat, offering easy navigation for large RVs, children?s bicycles and wheelchairs. A fully accessible fishing pier sits above a trout-filled creek open only to physically challenged visitors, senior citizens and children. Tour the adjacent trout rearing station, hike on several nearby mountain trails or simply relax in this peaceful setting. The park?s central location makes it a perfect jumping off spot for mountain exploration.
The park offers a variety of boating options. It is located on the shores of Lake Burton, which allows for motorized and non-motorized boats. There's an accessible fishing pier in a trout-filled stream where visitors can fish from their boat or canoe/kayak rentals are also available at the park office. A private company operates seasonal pontoon boat tours around lake as well.
Enjoy fishing in a 54-acre lake, home to largemouth bass, bluegill and channel catfish. Trout streams are also available.
