Caldwell County


Outstanding recreational opportunities, the arts and community festivals make Caldwell County living even more enjoyable. Natural scenery in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains and a moderate southern climate add to Caldwell County's quality of life. We also have six golf courses in the county.

Boating, canoeing and water skiing on nearby lakes and snow skiing on the mountain slopes are less than an hour's drive away.

Caldwell County offers thousands of acres of pristine wilderness, scenic beauty, and a wide variety of outdoor activities. Caldwell County contains more than 50,000 acres of recreational land, much of it part of the Pisgah National Forest.
