Hmm.  Maybe it's a really good fishing hole?

Gotta be something to the owners, one would think!

If it's private property, the owner(s) don't have to do anything with it.

Agree 100%.    Just sayn' they could if they wanted to.  

Seems like a pretty big tax liability and headache for them and the community right now.    Seems.   Again, don't know much about it.   Hasn't been several drownings there over years? ( years after/since it was closed to the public)    

Which is why, and now I'm repeating myself, the fewer people know about the place, the better.  Good grief.

Exactly.

If it was my property, I'd worry about liability issues regarding trespassers.  Does "posting" alleviate that?

Agree, me too.  Good question about "posted".    Don't homeowner insurance companies require pool owners to have them fully fenced in or enclosed in order to provide liability  insurance coverage?   Think so.    That might not be apples to apples though.  



When #64 was being widened, some genius and friends thought it was a brilliant idea to steal a piece of heavy equipment and drive it right into the water.


Yeah, I've heard that from many people.  Along with other things.   Heard, have not confirmed, that a SCUBA club/organization of some sort has used or does use the place for certification and recreation.

I went there in early 70's when it wasn't off limits. Was just a simple place to go cool off for a swim with locals. Word spread and it got out of control. Parties, diving off the cliffs bean. I stopped going because it was no longer peaceful or enjoyable. Bad apples spoiled the basket thing.

This was not the 1st person to die in there and maybe not the last. Has been posted/no trespassing etc. for decades. Diving off a rock quarry cliff into deep waters not knowing what jagged remains are underneath the water just isn't very bright to begin with just saying. Dive into a boulder, the boulder is going to win.

Sorry this young man lost his life and prayers for his family.

Posting minimizes liability since the trespasser is committing a crime to be on the property.

That makes perfect sense.  With laws and courts being what they are, I'd bet liability is not eliminated.  Too Bad.   Especially in cases like this, where someone really has to ignore signs, go around, through or over clear barriers to entry.

Give credit where due, WRAL never identified the lake as far as I can tell.

Maybe not, but I remember a source calling it Sugar Lake.  Which, of course, is not its name, but there ya go.

Well, to anyone that has lived here any great length of time~Sugar Lake would be a well known 'name' and where and what it is or was.. There ya' go.
It's an abandoned quarry with some dangerous cliffs that many attempted and some with not too successful outcomes...like most quarry holes. Sorry this young man lost his life there. Likely dared the cliff dives and lost?

Sadly no.   This time, word on the street is,  it was a young man one year graduated from Northwood, alcohol, and a few questions for those there with him.  Still under investigation by our Sheriff's office.

Just can't resist the snark, can you.

Only snark is you. I'm merely stating what I know of the property and how dangerous it can be. I witnessed a diving injury there. I never went back. I put ? mark behind if diving off cliffs, because that is how most injuries or deaths here or in other quarries have happened. Often times alcohol etc. involved. This site's been posted for no entry for decades. That is known as trespassing. I don't see where the property owner should be held liable. Signs are posted for a reason. They assisted in rescue effort by clearing a pathway for emergency responders to access it sounds like. It's not a public property.

Again, sad for the young man's loss of life and to his family for their loss. Hopefully his friends learned some hard lessons as well.

Does anyone know the origin of the name of the road?
