Rowing and Crew

Year after year, rowing and crew teams from across the country visit Rumbling Bald to take advantage of our excellent training facilities and convenient proximity to Lake Lure. With summer residents away, you'll find plenty of water time from mid-February to early April. Lake Lure’s strict permitting process keeps day boating to a minimum, ensuring your team’s training sessions will be uninterrupted. We secure all permits on your behalf, allowing you to focus on your training goals.

Your team will have full access to all the Resort amenities including: Fitness Center, Indoor Pool and Hot Tub, Fitness Trails, and more...

You will also enjoy being able to store your boats and trailers on our beach with direct access to either shoreline or dry launching dock.

The Resort features 2 bedrooms, 2 bath condos with full living area kitchens and dining room as well as washers and dryers. These units also have 2 beds per bedroom and some even have an additional foldout sofa bed. With these accommodations, you can see that the potential to have more athletes sharing units means you can save a considerable amount of money.

The Resort also features meeting space, full salon and spa, tennis and basketball courts, indoor pool with Jacuzzi, sauna and steam room. We also offer special massage rates for the athletes. Due to the resort's location on over 3000 acres, there is also plenty of room to stretch your legs, and we have a complete fitness room including rowing machines. This year we are also pleased to offer 4 dry launching docks and racks to hold the skulls while on the beach.

In the past one of the highest reasons that teams have returned has been that we are right on the lake and because of our somewhat remote location it is easy to keep the students focused on training and studying. We also offer a night where the different schools can get together and mingle while roasting marshmallows on our private beach by the campfire.
