Beautiful Lake Gaston offers 20,000 acres of water that are a magnet for vacationers, fishermen, and water sports enthusiasts. The lake straddles the North Carolina and Virginia state borders and features plenty of boat ramps, fishing piers, picnic spots and swimming areas. Anglers will find that Lake Gaston is well stocked with the most popular regional game fish including striped bass, largemouth bass – even walleye. We think this area is also the Rockfish capital of the world. It’s the top spot in the area to enjoy a laid-back lifestyle.
Small-town living and improved work-life balance can be found here in this family-friendly community. Roanoke Rapids is a jumping off point for many outdoor adventures, close by the eastern-most shore of Lake Gaston, a popular area for fishing and recreational boating. Once home to many textile mills, the city’s historic district still boasts many restored buildings that lend charm to its downtown.
