Just minutes away from The Fork lie some of the best recreational opportunities in North Carolina. Enjoy fishing, boating, and other water sports at Lake Tillery, camping, hiking, and trail riding in the 50,000-plus acres of Uwharrie National Forest, and great golfing in the immediate area and in nearby Southern Pines.
The Fork is located about 40 miles east of Charlotte, on over 1600 acres of land, south of the town of Norwood, in Stanly County, North Carolina. Stanly County is situated in the south central portion of North Carolina in the gently rolling hills of the ancient Uwharrie Mountain range of the state’s Piedmont region.
Albemarle, the seat of Stanly County, is 42 miles northeast of Charlotte, 115 miles southwest of Raleigh, 125 miles east of the North Carolina mountains, and less than 200 miles west of the North Carolina coast. It truly can be described as an area of “accessible isolation,” near large market areas, yet not hampered by industrial areas threatening to smother it.
