About Roanoke Rapids Lake

Next to Lake Gaston

 

Roanoke Rapids Lake is a recreational body of water located downstream from Lake Gaston. The town of Roanoke Rapids includes restaurants, stores, Vidant North Hospital, and more.

The lake is within two hours of Raleigh, North Carolina, or Virginia Beach, Virginia.

 

A Peaceful Expanse

 

Covering 4,600 acres, Roanoke Rapids Lake is a beautiful view and a fine place of recreation. It features over 50 miles of shoreline and over half of that is left natural.

Roanoke Rapids Lake boasts a variety of waterfowl, shorebirds, and freshwater marsh birds for bird-watching enthusiasts to enjoy. These include ruddy ducks, mergansers, king rails, marsh wrens, and many more.

 

Time on the Water

 

Lake Gaston catches a lot of the weekend action so Roanoke Rapids Lake is left uncrowded. This leaves plenty of room for power boating, jet skiing, tubing, angling, and swimming.

Fishing for panfish, bluegill, redear sunfish, and largemouth bass is also popular at the lake, or head up-river where you can find an abundance of rockfish between March and May.

Roanoke Rapids Lake Day Use Area includes a boat ramp, swimming beach, and fishing pier on the lake. Its other amenities include a playground, frisbee golf course, nature trails, a volleyball court, and the Roanoke Canal Trailhead.

 

A Lake for the Whole Family

 

Residents and visitors alike will agree that Roanoke Rapids Lake is a lovely spot to catch a sunrise or sunset. Its serene waters and natural landscapes are the recipes for relaxation.

Whether you are looking for a full-time residence or vacation home, Roanoke Rapids Lake is a great place to start.

About Roanoke Rapids Lake

Roanoke Rapids Lake is an impounded reservoir located on the Roanoke River in Halifax County, NC. It is just downstream from Lake Gaston and offers a wide variety of recreational activities from boating to swimming.

 

Amenities Galore

The highlight of the lake is the Roanoke Lake Day Use Park, a 17-acre lake front recreation area opened in the spring of 2007. The beautiful facility offers picnic shelters, restrooms, a playground, sand volleyball, a nine-hole Frisbee golf course, a handicapped accessible fishing pier, a 1/2 mile wooded nature loop trail, and ample parking. There is also access to the Roanoke Canal Trail head, a 7-mile long trail that passes a historic aqueduct.

 

Bring the Boat

A boat dock and boat launch allow visitors to play and cruise on the lake's beautiful water. Fishing for panfish, bluegill, redear, and largemouth bass is also popular at the lake, or head up-river where you can find an abundance of rockfish between March and May. Frequent visitors agree that the lake is a great spot to catch a lovely sunrise or sunset.

 

A Bird-Watcher's Paradise

Roanoke Rapids Lake boasts a variety of waterfowl, shorebirds, and freshwater marsh birds for bird-watching enthusiasts to enjoy. The best time to view waterfowl like the ruddy duck, canvasback, hooded merganser, and ring-necked duck is between October and April. For shorebirds, visit between July and September when the lake levels may be more shallow and you can find mudflats. Between May and July is the best time to view the marsh birds like king rails and marsh wrens.
