I'm not sure who's in charge of keeping the public area up, but the bathrooms need serious help! We went on a rainy day and no one was using the area; however, the bathrooms were filthy. We could smell them before we got to them, but when we opened the doors they were so bad flies were swarming. Needless to say we did not enter!

The Good: The lake, as stated, is very beautiful The Bad: It would be an excellent idea not to have to utilize the bathroom. While present, they are very poorly attended. Actually, to use the word "attended" is likely not a good choice. Unless you can hold your breath for the period of time required to empty your bladder, I think it likely you'll pass. Further, the flies are legion both in the sink, on the walls and the actual toilet area appeared, hands down, to be their very favorite location. In this age of pandemic, not one single mask was to be seen in this area of Cashiers. Not one single one. The lake is virtually inaccessible unless you are staying at a home on the lake which provides access or you have a boat to drop in the water or are prepared to rent one. There is NO walking area around the Lake. There is a small beach area (less than 100') Again, no masks. Should you plan to try and go there it is apart from the lake in a place called The Pines. It is clear that Lake Glenville is not meant to be found even with Google directions on board. If we hadn't found a postman, we would have never found the lake. There is ABSOLUTELY NO SIGNAGE. I am not sure of the reason for that.

A wonderful and historic place to visit. Anyone traveling up or down 07 between Cashiers and Sylva NC must stop and visit the Lake Glenville Historic Museum. What a treat

Simply one of the most picturesque lakes we've ever seen. Some small towns on and near the lake that are charming and worth the time. If I was going to live on a lake, Lake Glenville would be a serious contender plus some good hiking trails nearby.

This lake is just north of Cashiers, NC. Fairly high elevation lake that is easily 10 degrees cooler than nearby Sylva. Three public access points near the dam on the north end. One has a boat launch, the middle one has a fishing pier & free swimming beach & the other has a fishing pier and boat launch. All free of fees. There are two boat rental marinas that are very reasonably priced. From the water you can access three beautiful waterfalls. There are also three fish attractors in the lake. There is a county park with camping & day use area. Wonderful destination for a day or a week or longer.
