Carolina Lakes is a gated community of approximately 1,700 homes (Deed Restrictions Apply).  The Association has approximately 35 miles of "private" paved roads and is best known for our Lakes: Crystal, Diamond, Mirror, Sapphire, Silver, Ski Lake, and Lake Carolina (the main lake-approximately 240 acre) with two marina pavilions.
Many of our residents enjoy boating, kayaking, and Golf, as well as woodsy feel of our community. Our diverse community includes active duty military, civilian contractors, retirees and a multitude of school age kids.  
Harnett County has four distinct seasons with a temperate climate and plenty of sunshine.  Within the past few years a variety of retail businesses have opened nearby and the cities of Sanford, Fayetteville and Raleigh is just a short drive away.
An example of our amenities and programs offered include:
A Swimming Pool (with lessons offered through the YMCA)
Scott Dyer Field (with Soccer Camp offered through Challenger Sports "British Soccer") 
Tennis Courts
Basketball Court
A Fitness Trail
Various Clubs and Groups
Many more great amenities!
