Spring Break Fun In Charlotte

Cane Creek Park Waxhaw

Do you need a good day trip?  Children home from school looking a little bored? Or even an afternoon? Cane Creek is about 15 minutes south of Waxhaw, making it easily accessible for an afternoon trip from Union County or South Charlotte- leave a little more time if you are coming from the north… but if you have children acting like they’ve been cooped up, looking a bit crazed from being indoors,  you’ll find it worth the drive. 🙂 (From personal experience!)

Cane Creek State park, in southern Union County is the perfect day tip- or long afternoon.  The northern side of the lake is for day use, the southern side is for overnight/camping. Directions

Cane Creek was packed Easter Sunday afternoon. A beautiful day to be outside, families were barbecuing, fishing, playing beach volleyball,  horseback riding, and jus having a good time. There is plenty of shade, and covered shelters for picnics.  Canoes are available, a small climbing wall, snack bar (hours?),and shaded playgrounds for the little guys and girls. The lake had a few boats out on it, but mostly it was shore fun that caught my eye.


Call 704-843-3919 for Park hours, there is a $4.00 vehicle entry fee  , swimming and miniature golf opens Memorial Day Weekend.
