High Rock Lake

With 365 miles of shoreline and water surface covering 15,180 acres, High Rock Lake is the second largest lake in North Carolina behind Lake Norman. Serving as a reservoir lake on the Yadkin River, between Rowan and Davidson counties, High Rock Lake produces hydroelectric power for the surrounding communities.

Water control rules set forth by the High Rock Lake Association, the Yadkin River, and the various companies using the lake, help keep water level high and stable during recreational months. Boats, sailboats, jet skis, kayaks, canoes, and paddle boards are welcomed. Several public accesses and boat launches including Tamarac Marina, High Rock Lake Marina & Campground, Southmont Abbotts Creek, Buddle Creek, and Pebble Beach Access are available.

High Rock Lake is a hidden jewel in a country setting providing a quaint and quiet lake lifestyle. Lake living on High Rock offers excellent boating and fishing opportunities for bass, crappie, striper, bream, and catfish.
