Lake Trace Sandhills, NC

Lake Trace: 315 Acres of Natural Beauty

Lake Trace Sandhills, NCLake Trace is the landmark of the entire Carolina Trace community. As you enter the gated community, the beauty of the lake creates a sense of tranquility as the cares of the world seem to slip away in this calm and peaceful setting, with seven miles of shoreline and panoramic views of undisturbed hardwoods.

The 315-acre lake is ideal for pontoon boats, kayaks, canoes, sailing and fishing. As part of our environmental efforts, only electric motors are allowed on Lake Trace. Behind the Clubhouse is a marina where members dock their pontoon boats, allowing non-lakefront owners access to Lake Trace. The Club also has storage facilities for smaller boats.

Perfect for Water Activities of All Sorts

Lake Trace was formed by damming water of the Upper Little River several decades ago. Stocked with a variety of fish, including bass, bream and catfish, Lake Trace has yielded a number of record-sized catches. Those hauls have extended beyond Lake Trace as well, one of the many ponds throughout the community once held the national record for a sunfish catch.

Members can enjoy fishing along the shore, or out on the 315 acres of the lake from boats, canoes or kayaks. Many of our members are also part of TUFF, or the Trace Union of Fervent Fishermen, which provides a close-knit community for local fishing enthusiasts. So no matter how you enjoy fishing or water sports in general, Lake Trace is the perfect location for all waterfront activities.
