A man-made reservoir, Falls Lake is located in the upper portion of the Neuse River Basin, nestled very near North Carolina's bustling "Triangle Area". The reservoir covers almost 12,500 acres with water, and is surrounded by 25,500 acres of public land. The dam is located just outside of Raleigh, and the lake stretches 22 miles upstream to the confluence of the Eno, Flat, and Little Rivers near Durham.
Falls Lake offers many recreational opportunities to the public. Boat launching, public marina, swim beach and picnic facilities are operated by the North Carolina State Parks.
