Lake Reidsville is a variety recreation facility, which is open every day for daily activities year round. It is managed by Superintendent of Parks & Recreation Nick Aceves, who supervises both Lake Reidsville and Lake Hunt for the City. This recreation facility boasts a 750-acre lake and park that provides many outdoor activities as well as top-notch facilities available for a variety of events.

Since June of 2007, Lake Reidsville has been home to Rockingham County's first disc golf course, Lake's Edge. Based on traditional golf, disc golf is a fast-growing sport where players throw a flying disc into a metal basket with chains hanging over it. The Lake's Edge course is geared for both family and professional play. Designed by Innova, the "Nike" of Disc Golf, the course begins near the Camp Store. The course is listed on the Disc Golf Directory on www.PDGA.com.
Concerts and special events are held throughout the season. The amphitheater is also available for rental. Contact Park staff.
Along with these activities and facilities, Lake Reidsville also offers a full schedule of special events throughout the season.
Fishing tournaments are typically held at least once a month during the season for area fishermen. These weekend tournaments include either team or one-person bass fishing or night catfish fishing.
