Lake Glenville In North Carolina

Lake Glenville, North Carolina

Boating, camping and fishing.

Boating at Lake Glenville, aka Thorpe Lake, opens the world of fishing and water sports. This is a 1,470-acre lake in the southwest part of the state, located just miles southwest of Creswell, NC. Public boat launch ramps provide easy access to the lake. Healthy populations of largemouth and smallmouth bass which feed on schools of blueback herring and bream, make this a bass fishing paradise. In addition to great bass fishing, these waters provide opportunities for crappie, catfish, trout, sunfish and walleye anglers to enjoy some excellent fishing. Local marinas and boat rental options can assist with watercraft needs. Kayak and canoe fishing is popular, as is fishing from shore at a variety of locations around the lake. Pockets, points, coves and channels provide a wide variety for the many fish species in the lake to hold and feed.
