Singletary Lake is similar to the other Bay Lakes in North Carolina: round, shallow, and filled with bay trees. It is the deepest of all of them at 11.8 feet, but not the largest. Other examples of Bay Lakes are: Lake Waccamaw State Park and Pettigrew State Park,
The State Park can be one of the most difficult to visit due to the two group campsites inside the park. When these are occupied, outside visitors are not allowed in. Calling the park in advance before stopping by is almost required, to guarantee that you'll actually be able to explore what the park has to offer. You can always stop by and get your passport stamped.
