Have the time of your life at beautiful Lake Lure, located in Hickory Nut Gorge of Rutherford County. The Blue Ridge Mountains surround the lake and area known for cinematic fame, including scenes from "Dirty Dancing" and "Last of the Mohicans." The lake offers opportunities to enjoy the water, from a public beach to guided boat tours to fishing to a chance to try the famous lake lift scene during the annual Dirty Dancing Festival. The Town of Lake Lure edges the lake, providing eating and lodging options.

"A quaint lake and a great area to visit!"
