Yeongnangho Lake is actually a naturally formed lagoon with a depth of 1.21 Km2 and a circumference of 7.8 Km. The name ‘Yeongnangho’ originated in Silla Period (57 BC – AD 935), when a young man named Hwarang and his friend Yeongnang were returning from the Geumgansan Mountains and they encountered a lake. Awestruck at the beauty of the lake they named it after Yeongnang.

Nearby Yeongnangho Lake is a resort with a golf course and canoe rentals, as well as many pedestrian pathways that joggers enjoy in morning. When visiting the lake, one must be sure to stop by the Beombawi Rock; 'Beom' means tiger in English. This rock takes on the form of a tiger. Many visitors climb this rock to enjoy beautiful views of the surrounding area.
