Fishing – These are truly "golden pond" experiences. Bass Lake on the Blue Ridge Parkway, with its handicapped accessible trail, is popular in all four seasons. So is Price Lake, with another beautiful lakeshore hike. That path passes through the Parkway's biggest campground with stunning shoreline camp sites. Price Lake also offers one of the area's best family boating opportunities. The calm lake is perfect for paddling-and canoes, rowboats, and starting in 2013, kayaks, are available for rent at the lake. Fishing is permitted too, with bait available for sale and fishing tackle for rent.Trout Lake almost hides in Blowing Rock's Moses Cone Park-but you can find it!
