The area houses over 50 natural and man-­made lakes, including Big Lake, Boiling Spring’s 275-­acre centerpiece and a veritable dream incarnate for freshwater fishers and watersport enthusiasts in general.

Ensconced among thickets of pines, oaks, and sweet gum trees and home to a variety of rare and unique plant and animal species, Boiling Springs is especially enchanting.  Whether you’re looking for a peaceful vacation destination or a permanent relocation to tranquility, Boiling Spring Lakes may just be the getaway you’ve been looking for.

An Outdoor Sanctuary  

Not many areas can tout the same exquisite natural settings that Boiling Spring Lakes is immersed within. Nature fans can stroll through a portion of the Boiling Spring Lakes Nature Trail, which traverses through more than 6,000 acres of protected wildlife and vegetation, for the chance to observe some of North Carolina’s rare animal and plant species — some of which are exclusive inhabitants to the Boiling Spring Lakes Nature Preserve. Over 400 rare or endangered plant species are protected — including Venus Flytraps, pitcher plants, orchids and Rough­Leaf Loosestrife — as well as the federally endangered Red­Cockaded Woodpecker. 

Boiling Spring’s unique natural inhabitants are the result of a collaborative preservation effort on behalf of the N.C. Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services’ Plant Conservation Program, The Nature Conservancy, the City of Boiling Spring Lakes and the North Carolina Natural Heritage Program.
