Chimney Rock State Park is a must see when you vacation in Rutherford County. Previously a for-profit tourist attraction, it was purchased recently by the state of North Carolina and is now a state park.

Lake Lure is a true mountain lake with a marina, water sports, and tours.  Surrounded by rental cabins, bed & breakfasts,  and other accommodations,  it offers perfect relaxing views from porches and verandas.

For a wild and scenic adventure,  travel  to Hickory Nut Gorge.   It passes through the villages of Lake Lure, Chimney Rock, Bat Cave, Bearwallow,  and Gerton.  It’s a busy recreational area with loads of shops and things to do.
