Map + Directions

Basic Directions
Using Interstate 40 in Raleigh as a reference point, take exit 297 (Lake Wheeler Road) and drive south, away from Raleigh. Stay on Lake Wheeler Rd, passing across Tryon Rd. Continue on Lake Wheeler Rd. until you pass flashing yellow lights at Simpkins Rd. which connects to Lake Wheeler Rd. on your left. Continue on Lake Wheeler Rd. and the park entrance will be on the road's right side. Make a right into the front entrance of the park and stay on the long winding road to the waterfront. Lake Wheeler Park can only be accessed via Lake Wheeler Rd. Although there is a small bridge that passes over Lake Wheeler by Penny Rd., fishing and the launching of boats is not allowed at that location.
