The Area

Lake Trace is the landmark of the entire Carolina Trace community. As you enter the gated community the beauty of the lake creates a sense of tranquility as the cares of the world seem to slip away in this calm and peaceful setting, with seven miles of shoreline and panoramic views of undisturbed hardwoods. The 315-acre lake is ideal for pontoon boats, kayaks, and canoes, sailing and fishing. As part of our environmental efforts, only electric motors are allowed on Lake Trace.

Behind the Clubhouse is a marina where members dock their pontoon boats allowing non-lakefront owners access to Lake Trace, in addition to allowing lakefront owners access to the Club via the marina. The Club also has storage racks for smaller boats, such as kayaks or canoes.

Lake Trace was formed by damming water of the Upper Little River several decades ago. Stocked with a variety of fish, including bass, bream and catfish, Lake Trace has yielded a number of record-sized catches. Those hauls have extended beyond Lake Trace as well, one of the many ponds throughout the community once held the national record for a sunfish catch.

Surrounding Lake Trace is a community of more than 1600 homes and property. There are a multitude of different POA’s with various home styles and prices to suit any family to a T. If you are interested in real estate please see our real estate section for more information and contacts.

Renovations will begin in 2015 to the grounds surrounding the Clubhouse.
