While you are here, you might want to check out the Sandhills Farmers’ Market on Chapel Hill Road. You can buy fresh produce, flowers and herbs, straight from the hard-working people who grow it. Plus, you can learn about old home remedies that you can still use – turpentine, poke salad and pine top tea. It is open every Saturday from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m.. There is even free kids activities every second Saturday of each month.
Spring Lake is also a perfect launching point to Fort Bragg, which is the largest Army installation in the country, hosting over 45,000 military personnel. It is also proud to be the home of the revered 82nd Airborne Division and the famed Golden Knights parachute team. Here, visitors can explore one of the many military-themed Cultural Heritage Trails available on our website.
If you have never tried shooting Clay Targets, you definitely need to try it. For there are few things as satisfying as watching clay targets explode when you shoot them. At the Spring Lake Clay Target Center, you can practice your aim – or try to develop a new one.
For a little change of pace, there’s the Lower Little River, which runs its way through Spring Lake. Bring your kayak or canoe and enjoy rippling waters, snow white sand and natures’ songs as you float through the woods.
