Lake Glenville, North Carolina

The crown jewel of Glenville, North Carolina, Lake Glenville is the highest lake east of the Mississippi River. At 3,494 feet above sea level, and with a surface area of 1,462 acres, it offers 26 miles of pristine shoreline for abundant recreation.

Offering boating, paddling, tubing, skiing, swimming, and fishing—as well as glorious Blue Ridge Mountain scenery and sunsets—Lake Glenville is located in Jackson County, about eight miles from the historic resort village of Cashiers.

Three waterfalls spill into this mountain lake—Hurricane, Mill Creek, and Norton. Below its dam, High Falls becomes a spectacle on the select days that water is released and kayakers navigate its rushing flow down the Tuckasegee River.

Country clubs, gated neighborhoods and working farms surround Lake Glenville.  As you stir its glassy surface, you’ll feel a stirring in your heart. This is authentic, mountain lake life at its finest.
