The only thing better than living in the mountains is living in the mountains on a lake. Connestee Falls offers that opportunity times four with one of the most impressive private lake systems in Western North Carolina. Watch this short video for a bird's eye preview of the Lakes.
Lake Atagahi 80 Acres • 59' Deep • 2890' Above Sea Level
Lake Ticoa 75 Acres • 92' Deep • 2810' Above Sea Level
Lake Tiaroga 31 Acres • 32' Deep • 2950' Above Sea Level
Lake Wanteska 45 Acres • 62' Deep • 2440' Above Sea Level
The four lakes of Connestee Falls make our locale unique within the region and constitute major scenic and recreational attractions for residents. Our community is fortunate that, except for one small stream helping feed Lake Atagahi, the watersheds for all four lakes are completely within our boundaries, thus giving us virtually complete control over our lake water quality.
Three of the lakes have storage areas for small boats (fee required). All lakes have boat-launching ramps. Unless noted otherwise, all four lakes contain our five predominant fish species in varying numbers including largemouth bass, bluegill/bream, catfish, yellow perch, and rainbow trout. A stocking program ensures there are plenty of fish for healthy aquatics and to please resident fishing enthusiasts.
BOATING ON OUR LAKES
A variety of small craft populate our shores and ply our pristine waters. They range from tiny kayaks barely big enough for the paddler to 24-foot pontoon boats that will hold a dozen persons. There are scores of colorful canoes, traditional rowboats, sailboards and sailing prams, and even a racing shell or two. Gasoline powered watercraft are not allowed in the lakes to ensure their water quality and the quiet environment that surrounds them.
