The 800-acre Oak Hollow Lake is an integral part of the 1,500-acre Oak Hollow Park complex. Oak Hollow Lake was built as a primary water supply for the City of High Point. The lake opened in 1972 for recreation use by the public.
The benefits of the beautiful lake have been phenomenal. Oak Hollow is a favorite site for all types of activity, including pleasure boating, fishing, skiing, sailing, canoeing and kayaking. Bank fishing is available in the Marina area.
The Marina facility offers a large parking area, multiple launch ramps, restrooms, bait and tackle, ice, drinks, snacks, sailboat rentals, classroom space, children’s playground, boat storage space and shelter rentals. A second large parking lot and multiple launch ramp area for sailboats are located across the lake from the Marina.
Oak Hollow Lake has been the site of many exciting sporting events, such as drag boat races, circuit boat races, sailboat regattas, ski tournaments and fishing tournaments.
Festival Park and the North Overlook are located at 1841 Eastchester Drive next to Oak Hollow Lake Dam. Each overlook has a stunning view of the lake offering scenic picnic locations for families and groups. Each of the overlooks has restrooms, two shelters (75 person capacity each) and ample parking. In addition, North Overlook has a children’s playground and swings.
Festival Park has been the site of many special events, such as outdoor concerts, boat racing, Fourth of July celebrations, festivals, company picnics, and a variety of smaller events. Festival Park offers space for vendors, stages, extra electrical outlets and large overflow parking areas. Plus, the site is easily accessed from major highways.
At this place we welcome the John Coltrane International Jazz & Blues Festival.
