Lake Gaston is on the Virginia/North Carolina border spanning 34 miles and covering five counties which include Mecklenburg and Brunswick in Virginia and Warren, Halifax, and Northampton in North Carolina. The lake boasts more than 350 miles of beautiful shoreline and is well stocked with game fish including striped bass, largemouth bass, crappie, sunfish, and several varieties of catfish.
Lake Gaston was created some 50 years ago as a hydroelectric power source and is owned by Dominion Power. Dominion regulates building along the shoreline and lake water levels. The controlled water levels and shoreline regulations create one of the BEST lake experiences around.
The Eaton Ferry Bridge is the mid-point of the lake and the site of several local events, including The Crossing each August and the Big Air Water Sports Fair each June that features local, regional, and national watersports talents.
There is no shortage of fun to be had on Lake Gaston. From boating and fishing to wakeboarding, skiing, and swimming, there is something for everyone! You can rent a boat at Morningstar Marinas or Poplar Pointe and then grab food and a drink and listen to some live music at The Pointe at Lake Gaston.
