The most informative website for information about Lake Lure is

Beautiful Lake Lure, North Carolina as seen from Chimney Rock Park    

The lake is approximately 720 acres, with about twenty-one  miles of shoreline.

Located in Western North Carolina, Lake Lure sits in the heart of Hickory Nut Gorge. East of Asheville, the Rocky Broad River tears its way in a series of rapids down through Hickory Nut Gap. This crystal clear water flows through a valley shaped roughly in the form of a Maltese cross to make Lake Lure.

Great stretches of water, three long bays, an island of seven acres and many small bays and inlets with a background of tree clad hills and mountains.

The climate is unusually good as Lake Lure lies in the "Thermal Belt."

Lake Lure and the surrounding areas are famous for hiking, bird watching,  fishing (fly, spinning, lake and river), rock climbing, skiing, shopping, golfing, swimming and boating. Click here for more information about what to do in the Lake Lure area.


Dining: From hot dogs to fine dining, there are many locally-owned restaurants.  Enjoy romantic candlelit dinners by the lake, fine dining with incredible views, pubs & grilles, BBQ, Italian, Mexican & down-home on the river we have it all!  Click here for a list of restaurants!
