Lake, located on National Highway No. 1, came into existence in 1972.
Covering 17 acres and built imaginatively on a marshy and shallow land,
the lake complex fascinates with its greens. The tourist attractions have
grown with time.
The lake derives its name from the town of Karnal, a place that celebrates Karna, one of the heroes of the epic Mahabharata. Though there are hints of antiquity in and around the town, no concrete evidence about its ancient traditions can be seen here. The town came to be known only for its British military base, which later shifted to Ambala.
The structures around the shimmering emerald coloured lake provide some of the most delightful luxuries for tourists. Designer decorated guestrooms look out on the lake, with each room facing landscaped surroundings. The tall eucalyptus shut off the din of the highway. Karna Lake also has twin luxury cottages, which are quiet and restful. The interiors are designer decorated and a world apart in themselves.
A well-equipped conference hall is an integral part of the complex, replete with steno cabin and allied facilities.
Facilities: Motel with piped-in channel music, deluxe family huts, Whistling Teal Restaurant, bar, ice-cream parlour, lounge-cum-conference room, new conference hall, boating, angling, a gift shop, snack shop and spacious lawn for picnickers.
