This 12-acre, artificial lake is nestled in the southeastern portion of the Long Cane Ranger District.

A heavily wooded campground offers 9 sites in the relaxing solitude of nature, with easy access for other recreational activities. A camp host is on site during peak season.

For your comfort and safety, there is a designated swimming and picnic area with a bath house. The day-area was designed to accommodate the fi shing en thu si ast with a pedestrian bridge and boat ramp for non-motorized boats. The lake is managed to enhance catfish, bream, and bass populations.

The trailhead for the Horn Creek Trail is at this site. Although primarily used by mountain bikes, hikers are welcome. This is a 5.7-mile, moderately difficult loop trail and winds through the rolling piedmont hills of oak, hickory, and pine forest.

The Lick Fork Lake Hiking Trail originates at the swimming area and travels around the lake, ending at the boat ramp. Hikers on this easy, 2- mile loop will enjoy seeing distinctive piedmont vegetation.
