The name for Lake Mattamuskeet comes from an Indian word for
"shallow lake" or "moving swamp." Only 5 feet deep, the lake is
freshwater. Residents once attempted to drain the lake for farming
purposes, but the lake is now preserved as a wildlife refuge.
Visitors can enjoy a visit to this now serene lake.
