Raleigh Rowing Center

Located on beautiful Lake Wheeler in Raleigh, North Carolina, Raleigh Rowing Center promotes both recreational and competitive sculling for adults.

Why Raleigh Rowing Center?

  • Have you always wanted to try rowing, but didn’t know where to go?
  • Would you love having access to a great fleet of quads, doubles, and singles and a fun and supportive group of people to row with?
  • Have you always dreamed of a beautiful lake that has specified no-wake hours?!
