Area Information

Local Area Information One of North Carolina's most beautiful natural resources, Lake Mattamuskeet will take your breath away. Located in the center of Hyde County, west of the Outer Banks, Lake Mattamuskeet is NC's largest natural lake. It's so big in fact, that it makes up the majority of the Mattamuskeet Natural Wildlife Refuge, an organization founded in 1995 to preserve the lake. Old Indian tales illustrate how the lake could have been created with mention of a "fire that burned for thirteen moons," but modern day scientists believe that it was created by a meteor shower or a prolonged underground peat fire.

The lake's recorded history dates back centuries beginning with a group of sixty English explorers from Sir Walter Raleigh's Roanoke Island expedition who stumbled across the lake in 1585.

Today, it's a refuge for nature lovers, hunters, fishermen, bird-watchers and anyone looking to enjoy the beauty of the great outdoors and one of North Carolina's most treasured resources.
