Situated between Burke and McDowell Counties, Lake James is the uppermost lake in the Catawba River system, and was originally created by Duke Power. Lake James NC is an integral part of the area’s economy, and provides not only hydroelectric power for the region, but also endless fun for the whole family.

Living on Lake James you can enjoy the usual lake activities like swimming, boating, fishing, water skiing, and jet skiing, as well as activities like hiking, mountain biking and bird watching.  Lake James is surrounded by several natural areas and state parks. One such park, Lake James State Park, is 605 acres and is located along the southern shoreline of the lake. Here you can explore part of the Overmountain Victory National Historic Trail which connects to the renowned Mountains to the Sea Trail that is so frequently hiked.

In addition to the great outdoor activities and endless recreation to be had on Lake James, the lake is also home to several different native species of animals, flowers and fish. Bald eagles nest along the shoreline and soar about the lake during different seasons, and the native flowers found on the banks are some of the most biologically diverse in the country. In addition to the lake's enormous supply of bass, catfish, and muskellunge, Lake James is also home to a species of freshwater jellyfish. The jellyfish are harmless and unique to the lake.
