Information: Lake Rhodhiss spans 3,060 acres in Burke and Caldwell Counties of west central North Carolina, lying between Lake James and Lake Hickory. A view of surrounding mountain peaks and wildlife, coupled with Rhodhiss' sprawling quiet, makes the lake a beauty. It is a narrow river-like reservoir within the large Catawba River Basin. About three fourths of the lake's watershed is forested and only three percent developed, making the area a good choice for those who simply desire some rejuvenation in nature's lap. Rhodhiss Lake was filled after Duke Energy constructed a dam and hydro station in 1925. The dam is 65 feet high and 1,500 feet long. Duke Energy continues to control water uses, which include hydroelectric power, industrial and residential water supply, and waste assimilation. Visitors take full advantage of the lake's recreational opportunities and enjoy nearly every water sport in waters that remain constant throughout the year: water skiing, tubing, wakeboarding, jet skiing, swimming, and boating. Duke, in collaboration with the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission, provides four boat access areas and one bank fishing area for visitors' convenience. A marina offers a boat ramp, fuel, boat storage, restaurant, and grocery items.
