The Town of Lake Lure has scheduled a temporary draw down of lake lure water levels so we are unable to offer boat tours at this time.

This is a controlled, scheduled lowering of lake levels 6-8 feet below “full pond water levels". The Town of Lake Lure will begin raising the lake level back to full pond starting on February 15, 2020

Please do not be alarmed during your visit if you do not see lake water levels at their typical elevation; the water will return by early Spring, and be ready for a fantastic 2020 season!
