About Mountain Island Lake

Convenient Location

 

Less than half an hour drive from North Carolina's Charlotte-Douglas International Airport, Uptown Charlotte or the US National Whitewater Center, Mountain Island Lake is a popular choice for homeowners and visitors alike. The nearest principal traffic corridors, I-85 and I-485, provide access to local connector roadways which lead to the lake.

 

Public access areas are available at the Cowan's Ford Waterfowl Refuge and the Latta Plantation Park which are both operated by Mecklenburg County. Additional access areas are found at the Neck Road Access Area, the Riverbend Access Area and the Mountain Island Tailrace Fishing Area.

 

Historical and Topographical Features

The lake is the result of the damming of the Catawba River in 1924 in order to create the Mountain Island Hydroelectric Station. Named for the mountain which appears as an island in the lake, the surrounding waters have a depth of about 58 feet at the deepest point. With over 61 miles of shoreline, Mountain Island Lake covers some 3,281 acres within the counties of Mecklenburg, Gaston and Lincoln.

 

As a result of County and State funded acquisitions, approximately 74% of the lake's shoreline is protected. Mountain Island Lake has the distinction of being designated the first Important Bird Area in North Carolina. It provides habitat that is essential as a stopover for migratory birds, wintering waterfowl and other wildlife.

 

Popular Spot for Water Related Activities

Boating, water skiing, kayaking, paddle boarding and canoeing are popular pastimes along the waterway. The relatively shallow depth of the lake and the implementation of no wake zones keep motor boating traffic moderate. There are two public boat ramps which allow boaters access for launching. Fishing enthusiasts find that catfish, several varieties of bass, white perch and sunfish inhabit the lake.

 

Living On the Lake

Mountain Island Lake is home to a number of upscale communities. Residents enjoy the relaxed, natural setting found on the water while living in an area that is close to every metropolitan convenience. Luxurious custom built homes with boat docks and lifts are scattered along the lake. Many are on large estate lots. Vacant land is still available for development. Buffer areas and watershed restrictions ensure that the aesthetic appeal provided by the lake remains intact.
