Your guide to Lake Gaston

Introduction

Straddling five counties on the border between Virginia and North Carolina, Lake Gaston is a getaway for anyone looking for remote lakefront recreation. Created in 1963 by a dam on the Roanoke River in the tiny town of Thelma, NC, the lake encompasses 20,000 acres and spans 34 miles, with more than 350 miles of shoreline. Yet given its sheer size, Lake Gaston can still feel like a locals’ secret. Stocked with game fish like striped and largemouth bass, sunfish, and several varieties of catfish, it draws in-the-know anglers as well as watersport enthusiasts who are lured by its warm, clear waters. Water skiing, wakeboarding, tubing, jet skiing — just about anything you can do on a placid body of water, you can do in Lake Gaston. Only you won’t have to fight off the crowds.


When is the best time to stay in a vacation rental in Lake Gaston?

True to the surrounding region, Lake Gaston experiences warm and comfortable summers and mild winters. During the summer months, temperatures average in the mid- to high 80s Fahrenheit during the day, then drop to the 60s after sunset. Humidity can be quite high in summer (though lake breezes help), and the season also welcomes lots of rain. Winter is typically mild, with daytime temperatures in the 50s. Overnight lows hover around freezing, though seldom drop much below the low 30s. Winter is fairly dry, though there’s occasionally a dusting of snow. During the spring, temperatures are comfortable — typically in the mid-60s to high 70s, falling to the high 30s to low 50s at night. Fall can be warm — sometimes in the low 80s — though most days are in the 70s and 80s, dropping to the 40s and 50s after sunset.


What are the top things to do in Lake Gaston?

Littleton

A quick 10-minute drive from the center of Lake Gaston is Littleton, NC, a charming small town with a handful of shops and services. If you’re making a day trip, be sure to stop by the famous Cryptozoology & Paranormal Museum — AKA the Bigfoot Museum.

Medoc Mountain State Park

Less than 30 minutes south of Lake Gaston is Medoc Mountain State Park, with its 10 miles of well-kept trails, canoe and kayak landings, and a lovely picnic area in a meadow. The park encompasses several creeks, including Fishing Creek, which is said to be one of the cleanest in the region.

Roanoke Canal Museum & Trail

Even if you skip the museum, this beautiful trail about a half-hour east of Lake Gaston makes for a worthy detour, especially if you have mountain bikes in tow. Spanning 7.5 miles between Roanoke Rapids and River Falls Park in nearby Weldon, the trail parallels the canal’s original towpath and offers photo opportunities along the way, including the historic Chockoyotte Creek aqueduct.
