Join Graham Recreation & Parks for a fun-filled family afternoon at Graham-Mebane Lake. Come out and bank fish for free or head out on the water for a paddling adventure with the options of kayaking or canoeing, and pontoon boat tours as space allows (tentative). The Park & Play Mobile Recreation Van will also be available to provide family fun with a variety of yard games. Feel free to bring a picnic to enjoy under the shade by the water.
Every participant must wear a PFD/life jacket while participating in water activities. The smallest PFD available at the lake is rated for youth 30lbs-50lbs. If your child wishes to participate in water activities but weighs less than 30 lbs., you must bring an appropriately sized Type I, II, or III, Coast Guard approved PFD.
We encourage you to bring your own fishing rods as we have limited supplies for loaning. Live bait will be available to purchase. As a reminder, all people aged 16 years and older are required to have a valid fishing license to fish in North Carolina waters. Fishing licenses can be purchased from the NC Wildlife Resources Commission website or from a local tackle shop or outdoor retailer that serves as a wildlife service agent.
Please note: All children must have adult supervision at all times during this program. Persons must be of walking age to enter any rental boat. Persons aged 8 and under must be in a canoe or tandem kayak with a parent or legal guardian. Persons 9 to 15 years of age may be allowed to launch or operate a solo kayak/watercraft if they are accompanied on the lake by a parent or legal guardian. For the pontoon boat tours, all persons under 16 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Please arrive early to guarantee a time on the water.
