Graham-Mebane Lake is a 650-acre municipal reservoir.  Formerly known as Quaker Lake, the Lake was expanded from 150 acres to its’ present size in 1994.  In addition to Quaker Creek, four other creeks (Otter Creek, Mill Creek, Stagg Creek, and Back Creek) feed into the lake.

Graham-Mebane Lake offers sport fishing, boating, skiing, bank fishing, picnicking, and the peace of a relaxing afternoon.  The lake also offers tournaments and programs to participate in.  View our programs and events and our ski area policy.  The lake is the source of drinking water for the citizens of Graham, Mebane, Green Level, and Swepsonville, so no swimming or wading is allowed. For safety, Graham-Mebane Lake restricts admittance during periods of lightning, heavy rain, and fog until safe boating/fishing is assured.  The marina offers fishing supplies, worms, and crickets.  Restrooms are available on site along with ice, snacks, and drinks.  We have several free-of-charge picnic tables and grills located in the Bank Fishing Area offered on a first come basis.  View hours & fees.

Graham-Mebane Lake is an alcohol-free facility. Pets must be on a leash at all times. To ensure a safe trip, follow all NCWRC boating rules and regulations.
