    Northern Durham County is home to the village of Lake Michie, which is surrounded by towns like Butner and Rougemont.

    Residents of Lake Michie can go shopping at Cross Creek in Durham and eat at Hawthorne and Wood and El Jefecito.

    Average Size, with Amazing Experiences

    As a medium-sized lake with 480 acres, Lake Michie is ideal for those who want to feel alone while yet having access to a lot of room.

    Although swimming is prohibited in the lake, locals are still able to boat, kayak, canoe, fish, and unwind on the shore. Along with bull catfish, mud catfish, channel catfish, flathead catfish, blue catfish, chain pickerel, longnose gar, and other species, this region offers some of the best largemouth bass fishing.

    An ADA-accessible boathouse, a pier, and a canoe/kayak launch are located near the lake.
