Catawba River

Rivers, North Carolina
The postcard is misleading as there is no Lake Catawba in Mecklenburg County. It is in fact a portion of the Catawba River. The latter rises in the Blue Ridge Mountains on the Buncombe-McDowell County line and flows through McDowell and Burke County before continuing down through Caldwell, Alexander, Iredell, Lincoln, Mecklenburg and Gaston. It enters South Carolina approximately twenty-one miles west of Charlotte and joins the Big Wateree River.
