Waterfalls, Lakes and Parks
The beauty of Headwaters is highlighted by the many natural landforms that grace the property. These include two spring-fed lakes, six waterfalls and nine parks. You can’t help but feel relaxed as you listen to the rush of water as it cascades down a waterfall, float without a care across the calm waters of a lake or just take in all the flora and fauna that call the lush forests and mountains of Headwaters home.

The Lakeside Park with a covered picnic pavilion and including a mountain stone fireplace is a beautiful setting for a picnic, wedding or outdoor party. The timber frame shelter is situated at the head of our upper lake adjacent to the Fall Creek. The outdoor fireplace provides ambiance and two grill areas allow owners to have a family cookout.

Deer Creek Park features a three acre wonderland of trails, bridges, two 2-story tree houses, campsites, picnic areas and a swinging bridge. This one-of-a-kind park is nestled in a cove that features two streams and small trout pond. An easy walking trail connects picnic areas, camp sites and a small amphitheater with a fire pit. Both of the two-story timber frame tree houses are the main attractions as they make for great play areas for kids of all ages. The entire park is illuminated at night for enjoyment in the evenings and there’s even a small refrigerator for storing cool drinks and food for your picnic.

Stoney Creek Park is located on the lower lake and features a 30′ fishing pier and unique picnic area with a twelve foot stone picnic table and an outdoor grill. Wooden footbridges cross Stoney Creek which features a 200′ cascading stream and beautiful landscaping. This is just the place for family gatherings and, if you’re a dog lover, to let your four legged friend run free.

Fall Creek Falls Park was our first signature park centered on our premier Fall Creek Waterfall. This park is easily accessed by a short walk ending in a magical wooded cove of rocks, trees, moss and water. The waterfall has a 30′ vertical drop over a massive granite rock formation and the water continues to cascade downward another 200′ and drops 60′ in the process as the creek makes its way down to the upper lake and Lakeside Park. The rock formations around the waterfall are awe inspiring‚Ķ enjoy a picnic by the cool spray of the waterfall in the summer or hike up to it and take in the view when it freezes in the winter.

Sunset Park with a sweeping view of the Pisgah National Forest is perfect for watching brilliant sunsets. This park is a small viewing area intended as a gathering place for friends to meet as the sun goes down to the west. There’s a small parking area for two or three vehicles with a beautifully landscaped patio of stone pavers with a swing and rustic, but comfortable, natural furniture.
