Lake Gordon

Lake Gordon
Welcome to our smallest lake, Lake Gordon.  It is one of the many great discoveries you can make while exploring Mecklenburg County.

Lake Gordon is owned by the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries (DGIF).  It is a long but small lake, taking up a relatively small footprint of 157 acres.  It is located a few miles to the West of South Hill along Highway 58.  Click here for a map.

This is primarily a fishing lake, with light recreation also available such as canoeing and kayaking.

DGIF Fishing Report:

Lake Gordon has a very good largemouth bass population. Recent sampling showed many bass over 15 inches, with a fair number of bass over 20 inches. Lake Gordon also has good redear sunfish populations, fair crappie and chain pickerel populations, and is a very good channel catfish lake. Channel catfish are stocked in alternating years.

Access Information:
