Come visit Lake Wheeler Park for an afternoon of fishing, a relaxing wildlife watching experience or to have a picnic.

This 800 acre park and lake (650 acres of lake; 150 acres of park and land buffer) has rapidly become a favorite capital city getaway.

Enjoy the day on the water by launching your personally owned boat or by renting one of our boats. Personal Watercrafts (PWC), commonly known as Jet skis, are not allowed to launch at Lake Wheeler. Whether your goal is to go fishing, site seeing or exercise, we have the boat that's right for you.

The concessions area sells a variety of snacks, drinks, and fast food to include: chicken nuggets, french fries, hot dogs, popcorn, candy bars, ice cream, coffee, hot chocolate, soft drinks, sports drinks, bottled water, and our popular slushies.

The purchase of boat launches, fishing passes and boat rentals are also done at the concessions.
