Fairfield Lake is approximately 80 acres in size, 1 mile long and 35' deep at the deepest part.
The lake built in 1895. Before this it was a secluded watershed valley where gold and precious gems were mined. Georgetown Mine was the name of the mining 'town' and remains of the mining operations were flooded and remain to this day on the bottom of the lake.
You can canoe and explore the unbounded nature along the lake's shoreline, search for the perfect fishing hole (A North Carolina fishing license is required) in one of the fishing boats, or give your legs a workout in a paddle boat.
For even more fun on Fairfield Lake, try one of our Stand Up Paddleboards!
Fairfield Lake is home to several species of fish including bass, trout and crappie.
Deer are often seen high on Dobson Mountain overlooking the boat and beach area.
