Lake Lure

Located in Western North Carolina, the town of Lake Lure sits in the heart of Hickory Nut Gorge, east of Asheville. The Rocky Broad River winds its way down through Hickory Nut Gorge, and the water flows through the valley that feeds Lake Lure. The Town of Lake Lure encompasses 13.25 square miles including the lake with a large central body of deep water, three long bays, and an island of seven acres.  The lake is literally a tea cup surround my high mountain peaks. The climate is unusually temperate as Lake Lure lies in the “thermal belt” of the Western North Carolina Mountains and foothills.

The lake is the number one attraction and the reason so many families visit Lake Lure year after year. National Geographic has called Lake Lure one of the most beautiful man-made lakes in the world. Visitors come to enjoy the 720 acres of lake, sparkling clean beach area, and the incredible Blue Ridge mountain range including Chimney Rock.
