Lake Brandt is an 816-acre municipal reservoir. The lake was originally built in 1925 and raised to its present level in 1958. Lake Brandt is named in honor of Leon Brandt, who served as Mayor of Greensboro from 1907-1908.

Lake Brandt features fishing, stand-up paddle boarding (SUP), kayaking and canoeing. Fishing is most successful for largemouth bass, crappie, and catfish.

Rowboats, kayaks, SUPs, and canoes are available to the public on a rental basis. View activity and rental fees chart. Three launch ramps are also available to launch private boats.
