Badin Lake is one of a series of lakes created by the damming of the Yadkin-Pee Dee River in the Uwharrie Lakes Region of the United States. The Badin Lake Dam was built in 1917 to support a local aluminum smelting plant (Alcoa Aluminum Company of America), and the associated community of Badin was named for the founder, Adrien Badin. Badin Lake is in the Piedmont area of North Carolina.. It is contained by Narrows Dam at the town of Badin, North Carolina. Sitting within a valley, the lake is very deep, with a maximum depth of 190 ft. The lake occupies 5,350 acres and has 115 miles of shoreline. Its waters have an average summer temperature of 84.4 °F and an average winter temperature of 50.6 °F. No ferries cross Badin Lake. The northernmost point of Morrow Mountain State Park is roughly 2 miles downstream from Narrows Dam. The lake lies within Stanly, Davidson, Montgomery, and Rowan counties. Much of the lake's eastern shoreline lies within the Uwharrie National Forest.
