The Lochmere Lake real estate market is a beautiful, but lesser known, marketplace for lake property in North Carolina.
Lochmere Lake sits in Cary, North Carolina, under 15 miles from Raleigh. This lake is 650 acres of water and 150 acres of land. Lochmere Lake has become a very up-and-coming lake in North Carolina.
This is the largest lake in the community and the only one to offer boating with electric trolling motors or no motors. There is a boat ramp and dock for residents to use if they don't live on the shore. Swimming and inflatable rafts/rings are not allowed.
Anglers can toss a line out for bass and panfish, but the bass is catch and release only. The frequent fish in this lake are largemouth bass, redear, crappie, blue gill, catfish, and carp. Other community amenities are walking trails, biking trails, three community pools, tennis courts, and volleyball courts.
As the capital of North Carolina, Raleigh has lots to do and see!
