Lake Rhodhiss offers 90 miles of shoreline and a surface area of approximately 3,060 acres between the counties of Burke and Caldwell. Because Lake Rhodhiss is a reliable source of water for the nearby cities of Granite Falls, Lenoir, Morganton and Valdese, Duke Energy keeps the lake levels fairly even year round. The energy company, also, provides four boat access areas and one bank fishing area in cooperation with the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission.
