Hidden Lake (Temporarily Unavailable)
Camping on Palmetto-Peartree Preserve's
Hidden Lake
Hidden Lake is certainly one of the highlights along the Palmetto-Peartree Preserve Paddle Trail. This roughly 10 acre blackwater lake is accessible from the Albemarle Sound down a quarter mile entrance channel. A sign at the beginning of the channel will let you know you have arrived, but keep your eyes open because “Hidden” Lake is certainly a fitting name. As you paddle past cypress trees and Spanish moss you’ll quickly get a sense of what an enchanted, serene location this is. On the eastern edge of the lake you’ll find our camping platform, an ideal location to bird watch by day and stargaze by night.
Camping Reservations
Overnight campers must hold a reservation and valid permit to use
the platform.

Day users are welcome to use the platform for picnicking and bird watching, provided that no permit is posted at the canoe dock, indicating the platform has been reserved.

Day users must vacate the platform by 3pm. Funding for the platform was provided by the Anheuser-Busch Foundation and the NC Adopt- A- Trail program.
