Look to North Carolina’s Hyco Lake if you’re searching for lake homes for sale. Hyco Lake is the largest and most popular lake in the region, spanning into both Caswell and Person counties. Known by locals and visitors alike for its great fishing, outdoor recreation, and stunning scenery, Hyco Lake invites you to experience it for yourself before being tempted to call it home!
Hyco Lake is larger than its sister, Mayo Lake, and holds a whopping 25 billion gallons of fresh water. While the reservoir was constructed in the 1960s, Hyco Lake’s pool was given a boost by Hurricane Hilda, which dumped enough rain to permanently raise water levels. This all bodes well for anglers, who revel in the lake’s year-round fishing. Hyco Lake is open for fishing 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, as it’s continually warm waters make fishing a favorite pastime all year long. On any given day, you’re likely to hunt down anything from crappie, bass, perch, catfish, and bluegill to walleye, sunfish, and sauger. During the summer months the fishing is especially fruitful after a good rain, when oxygen is recirculated through the deeper waters. Rain or shine, you’ll enjoy a day of fishing on Hyco Lake any and every time!
Twisting, turning, and spreading winding fingers in all directions, Hyco Lake’s shoreline reaches 120 miles. The lake itself covers 3,750 acres, making it perfectly suited for a variety of water sports. Lake homes for sale are dispersed among several recreation areas and undeveloped land. There’s plenty of room to spread out your arms, or beach towel, and settle in. Numerous public boat ramps, piers, boardwalks, and docks are available to ensure launching your water toy of choice is always an option, and covered boat storage facilities are also offered for your convenience. In addition to boating, Jet Skiing, kayaking, and pontoon boating, knee boarding and water skiing attract their own enthusiasts. Of course, with so much open shoreline and unspoiled beach to indulge in, we wouldn’t blame you for simply basking in the North Carolina sun for awhile!

Lake view properties have year-round access to campsites, tennis courts, a public swimming beach, picnic area, and bath house.
