Mountain Island Lake is located on the Catawba River between Lake Norman and Lake Wylie. Although it is a small lake, it has a reputation as one of the best lakes for family fun. Mountain Island Lake provides the drinking water for the Charlotte region. No fuel docks or marinas are allowed and the boats are usually smaller.
Mountain Island Lake has some great waterfront communities with many residential docks. Due to it’s smaller size the lake is more susceptible to flooding. Years ago when the remnants of 3 tropical storms came through Lake Norman flooded by 1.5 feet but Mountain Island Lake flooded by over 5 feet. Some docks along with their boats broke free from their moorings and floated downstream.
Our years of experience working on Mountain Island Lake can serve you and your family by making sure the next flood doesn’t damage your dock.
