Lake Norman Counties
There are four Lake Norman counties that border Lake Norman; Lincoln County, Mecklenburg County, Catawba County and Iredell County. They meet in the middle of the lake.
Just like the Lake Norman towns, you’ll want to narrow your property search by deciding on which of the Lake Norman counties fits your individual needs. It could mean better schools, lower taxes, more public services. There’s a lot to decide!
Lake Norman is a lifestyle worth living! Built by Duke Power in 1963 it is 34 miles long and 8 miles across at its widest point. It is 760 feet above sea level and 140 feet at its deepest point.
Four highways surround Lake Norman and are used as reference points for each town. To the east is Interstate 77 (I-77), to the south is Highway 73, to the west is Highway 16 and the north is Highway 150.
Catawba County’s county seat is Newton but its largest city is Hickory NC and has a population of 154,810. It was named for the Catawba tribe of Native Americans, who once inhabited the area.
Iredell County has a population of 159,437. Its county seat is Statesville, but its largest town is Mooresville. The county’s largest river, the Catawba, forms much of its western border leading into Lake Norman, acting as the southern most boundary.
Located 29 miles northwest of Charlotte NC, Lincoln County offers lots of options and has a population of 78,000 people. East Lincoln County has shoreline on Lake Norman; in the middle, the City of Lincolnton is the county seat and West Lincoln County offers beautiful rich farm lands with rolling hills.
Charlotte NC is the county seat and largest city in Mecklenburg County. The population of Mecklenburg County is 990,977 people (by 2013 census estimates), making it both the most populated and densely populated county in North Carolina.
