Lake Glenville is a reservoir located just 8 miles from Cashiers, North Carolina. It was formed by the damming of the west fork of the Tuckasegee River in 1941. Between 1951 and 2002, it was officially known as “Thorpe Reservoir” after J. E. S. Thorpe, Nantahala Power’s first president. It is still listed as such on many maps. The lake bottom plunges as steeply as the mountains that meet the shore. The depth a short distance from the water’s edge may register 80 feet (24 m) or more. The lake also has 26 miles (42 km) of shoreline and the highest elevation of any lake east of the Mississippi. For those interested, we provide jet ski rentals and boat rentals on this lake.
