Outdoor Access

The Lake Lure area’s beauty, diversity of outdoor experiences and easy access to adventures makes it a premier vacation destination. Surrounded by the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, the 104 feet deep clear lake is a treasure in the Hickory Nut Gorge. With abundant trails and local flora and fauna, there is something for every type of outdoor adventurer.

Kayaking is a fantastic way to adventure around the lake. The Washburn Marina has a kayak launch for those bringing their own boat. If you are looking for fast moving water, check out the Broad River, located below the lake.

Stand Up Paddle Boarding*
Explore the lake on a stand up paddle board to take in the views and find secluded swimming spots.

*Note: for all watercraft, both motorized and non-motorized, you must obtain a permit issued by the Town of Lake Lure.

Lake Lure is excellent for both warm and cold-water species of fish. Species include: largemouth and smallmouth bass, trout, bream/bluegills, crappie, perch, white bass, carp, and several species of catfish. And don’t forget to purchase your fishing license from the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission. If you’re interested in trout fishing, it’s recommended to explore other nearby rivers and streams in the region, such as the Green River or the Davidson River, which offer better trout fishing opportunities in western North Carolina.

Within ten minutes of the lake explore Chimney Rock State Park with spectacular vistas, Party Rock with a 180-degree view of the lake , Rumbling Bald Loop with climbing opportunities, Dittmer-Watts Nature Trail for easy to moderate options, and Morse Park with wonderful local flora and fauna. Within twenty minutes check out Hickory Nut Falls to cool off in the mist from the waterfall, Youngs Mountain to hike a more moderate to challenging trail, and Devil’s Head to enjoy the view from the granite rock outcropping. Thirty minutes away, enjoy Little Bradley Falls hike for a triple-tiered, 50+ foot wall of gorgeousness and Big Bradley Falls hike, a more technical hike to a 100-foot waterfall. If you are up for a longer drive and more strenuous trails, within fifty minutes access the amazing hiking at Buffalo Creek Park and Weed Patch Mountain.
