When the mills broke ground in Cramerton it was due to the abundance and accessibility to natural resources.  As Cramerton has grown and evolved, the town has capitalized on having the South Fork River flowing through middle of town, being home to the closest mountains to uptown Charlotte, and connected its residents through a series of trails, greenways, sidewalks and pedestrian bridges.  All of this has made Cramerton the premier Eco-Tourism destination in the region.
Cramerton, NC is everyone's playground!  With over 180 acres of park and open space, over 10 miles of trail, 10 different river access or fishing piers, and a booming Parks and Recreation Department, there is no shortage of ways to play.  Cramerton is home to over 3.5 miles of River Frontage, mountain golfing, and a 30 acre island park.
If that doesn't get you excited, Cramerton is nestled in the perfect location to be at local attractions like Christmas Town, USA; county attraction such as Crowder's Mountain State Park; and regional attractions like the U.S. National Whitewater Center in mere minutes from your doorstep.  Check out all our awesomeness below!
