Farmer Lake
When you want a quiet, tranquil place to enjoy the best the great outdoors has to offer, think of S.R. Farmer Lake.  Located in central Caswell County, S.R. Farmer Lake is a 365 acre, Class A water shed built in 1986 for the City of Yanceyville.  A perfect place for fishing, recreational boating, water fowl hunting and picnics.  S.R. Farmer Lake is open from March 1st through November 30th.  The staff at S.R. Farmer Lake are willing to assist in whatever way possible to make your time spent here enjoyable.

S.R. Farmer Lake is a popular lake for many area anglers.  Its rural setting, restrictions on jet skis and swimming, and large bass population make it an ideal lake for fishing.

Anglers can choose to fish from the bank or off the wooden fishing pier located near the boat ramp.  Those desiring to fish off boats may do so by launching a privately owned craft (subject to a nominal launch fee). Canoes and kayaks are rented as well.

S.R. Farmer Lake is great for catching bass, crappie, catfish, bream and other species. Bass, catfish and crappie tournaments are held during the regular open season of the lake.

S.R. Farmer Lake also provides an excellent opportunity for the hunting of various species of waterfowl.  Teal, mallards, wood ducks and canadian geese use the lake as part of their southern flyway.

A covered picnic shelter is available for rental for business luncheons, birthday parties and other activities.  The shelter is available Monday - Saturday, 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. and Sunday 1 p.m. until 7 p.m.
