Camping at Lake Reidsville

Lake Reidsville
630 Water Works Road

Lake Reidsville is a variety recreation facility, which is open every day for daily activities year round. It is managed by Superintendent of Parks & Recreation Nick Aceves, who supervises both Lake Reidsville and Lake Hunt for the City. This recreation facility boasts a 750-acre lake and park that provides many outdoor activities as well as top-notch facilities available for a variety of events. Swimming, however, is not allowed since Lake Reidsville is a municipal water source.

The facilities on site add to the recreational experience, including boating, fishing, camping, and disc golf:

Boating & Skiing

Visitors can bring their boat, canoe or kayak to enjoy a day on the lake, including the many coves and fishing holes throughout. Skiing can be done in designated areas.


Lake Reidsville's campground features 46 wooded sites with water and electricity while 28 sites are full hook-up. There are hot water shower facilities and restrooms, fishing piers, nature trails and a bird watching trail to enjoy. Boat storage is also available.

The Lake's Edge course is geared for both family and professional play. Designed by Innova, the "Nike" of Disc Golf, the course begins near the Camp Store.

    I will bring some firewood and Phyllis and I will host a fire (which we may need) at least one night. Saturday may be best since it get dark early and everyone will need to set up. Drop by, say hi & get warm. See you there!

      If you don't want to reserve ahead they told me last year that if they fill up for a weekend you can call that morning and they will let you save one of the other sites. I got on a wait list for a reservable site one year and they called me when someone cancelled. Helpful staff.

    Planning to do some Kayak Fishing. Also thought it would be fun to try and get someone to show us the how to's of Disc Golf since they have a certified course there. Will post more when I get this worked out.
