Boaters visit Carters Lake to enjoy its solitude and scenic beauty. Whether you're in a powerboat, sailboat, or paddling along the shoreline in a canoe, Carters Lake offers everyone an enjoyable boating experience.
Carters Lake has multiple public boat ramps for easy access. Boat ramps are located at Damsite, Doll Mountain, Woodring Branch and Ridgeway. The reregulation pool also has a boat launch located near the powerhouse off old Hwy 411. All boaters launching outside a developed campground are required to pay a $5 day use fee or purchase an annual day use pass. No fee is required to launch at the reregulation pool ramp.
