Published on behalf of the County of Brunswick County -  Stay Clear of Hazard Buoys  

This a reminder to all users of Lake Gaston to practice safe boating.  The County of Brunswick (Pea Hill Creek and Poplar Creek) has installed buoys for your safety.  They provide warnings, information, mark underwater hazards and provide a system for navigation.  Unfortunately, we have noticed an uptick in damages to buoys.  Damages to buoys will result in fines.  

Please take care while boating and enjoy your time on Lake Gaston!  

To report damaged buoys, please call the County of Brunswick at 434-848-3107.  

In County of Mecklenburg at 434-738-6191  

In North Carolina waters contact NC Wildlife at 919-707-0150
