Access to Lake Wylie is conveniently located to the south at Copperhead Island boat launch.

If motorized watercraft do not interest you then Chapel Cove has a private canoe and kayak launch so residents can enjoy some of the lake’s 325 miles of shoreline and nature. In addition, Chapel Cove has a pool and splash pool, gym, walking trails and tennis, basketball and pickleball courts.
