1718 Lake Road (NC-56), Creedmoor NC 27522

As residents and visitors enter Creedmoor on NC-56, they are welcomed to the community by a picturesque lake that winds along the western boundary of the city limits.  Lake Rogers has always been a destination for locals to fish or enjoy a shaded picnic, but efforts by the City of Creedmoor and its citizens have turned this beautiful natural resource into a family recreation area woven into the fabric of the community. 

Lake Rogers is a destination for those wanting to spend an afternoon fishing, go for a paddle on the tranquil water, sit on the boardwalk and watch the sunset, enjoy a picnic, a day at the playground, or a quiet walk through the woods.

 


Shelter Rentals

Lake Rogers Park includes 4 picnic shelters, with amenities, that are available to the general public for reservation.  Reservations are available daily from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and require a 2-hour minimum rental.  Picnic shelters can be reserved by completing a Lake Rogers Park Shelter Rental Form located in the top left navigation bar.

Shelter Reservation, boat rental and boat launch fees are listed below To check the availability of a shelter, please email Creedmoor Parks & Recreation or call (919) 528-3332, Option 0.


Lake Concessions

The concession stand is open from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays from mid-April through mid-October.

Two or four-seat pedal boats, jon boats with oars, and nucanoes are available for rent on an hourly basis during operating hours. You must be 16 or older to rent, and must provide a driver's license or other valid form of identification.  Life jackets are provided and are required to be worn at all times.


Fishing

For those who enjoy fishing, Lake Rogers has a rebuilt fishing pier and four (4) fishing platforms.  Day or full season passes are available at City Hall or the concession stand during operating hours.  Make sure to have your boat launch pass with you at all times while on the lake.

Bass fishing is fair-to-good with best results during the spring and early summer months. Several bass in excess of 10 pounds have been taken from the lake. Bream fishing is fair around the pier during the spawning season. Bowfins (grindle) are caught on occasion and provide anglers with excellent sport. Other species common to the lake are white perch, carp, pickerel, gizzard shad, and yellow perch. Channel catfish were introduced in the 1970's and anglers report fair catches for this species.


Geese Population

Lake Rogers Park attracts Canadian Geese throughout the year and especially during the molting season.  Unfortunately, the presence of so many geese brings with it unwanted waste in the park.  The Parks and Recreation Department has implemented several initiatives to keep the geese from making the park their home, although those efforts have produced only marginal success over the years. 

The city has had many discussions with US Fish and Wildlife regarding approaches to goose management, and have been advised that the very first step to take is to ensure that park visitors are not feeding the geese.  Feeding the geese has many detrimental benefits including making them dependent on human food which causes them to abandon their natural food sources, as well as facilitating the elimination of waste throughout the park grounds.   This issue can lead to spread of disease and certainly poses a health hazard to park users.  Signage at the park has been erected to remind users not to feed the geese, and the city asks all users to help ensure this admonition is followed for the good of all who wish to use the facility.  For more information please download the brochure in the left navigation pane entitled "Do Not Feed Waterfowl".
