“Paddle Down an Unspoiled River!”
With more than 5,000 acres of land around Lake Phelps and the Scuppernong River including over 16,600 acres of water, Pettigrew State Park is an ideal blend of nature, history and recreation. Explore Lake Phelps and cast your line into crystal-clear waters where largemouth bass reign. Take a trip back in time at the grave of a great Confederate general. Or hug a tree as wide as an elephant. Paddle down one of North Carolina's last undeveloped rivers. Pettigrew exhibits its history among picturesque natural surroundings. Majestic cypress trees tower above as the branches of tulip poplar and swamp chestnut oak provide perches for songbirds. Wildflowers decorate the landscape with a splash of color.
Dugout canoes mentioned are no longer at the site (moved to a college campus). Also this does not mention Somerset Place within walking distance- good representative plantation for this area and interesting enslaved population research.
