Lake Phelps is North Carolina’s second largest natural lake, covering 16,600 acres and 5 miles across at its egg-shaped center. Yet despite its size, it took nearly three hundred years before European settlers finally stumbled upon it. This fact will have you scratching your head as you pull into the main parking area at Pettigrew State Park. In a state dominated by forest, hills, and mountains, a state where vistas are few, here on the open Albemarle Peninsula you can see for miles: acre after acre of cotton, corn, and soybean fields.
