Rhodes Pond

Rhodes Pond was built in the 1700’s by a dam crossing the Black River. Now owned by the NC Wildlife Commission, it served as a gristmill and saw mill, which became a hub for settlement. It has also been the site of a cotton gin, turpentine distillery, post office, tourist court, gas station, and restaurant. Today Rhodes Pond is a favorite spot for fishing, canoeing, photography, and sunsets. The lake encompasses 460 acres of tea-colored water filled with bright lilies, beavers, and enormous groves of cypress. The Black River is the heart of Rhodes Pond, feeding it continually with both wildlife and a large variety of fish native to the river. The remains of the old mill site and dam are intact. You can fish, picnic, canoe, hike and more. It has a new boat ramp with a floating dock. The NC Wildlife Commission is also in the process of building a fishing pier to include handicap accessibility. Open daily and free to the public.
