Stanford Lake is located in the very scenic area the surrounds the village of Haenertsburg. It straddles the R71 road between Polokwane and Tzaneen. The lake feeds into Ebenezer Dam via a waterfall at its south-eastern point.

The lake is named after Harvey Stanford who built it as his own lake to satisfy his passion for fishing. Unfortunately the lake claimed his life when the 69 year old's canoe started leaking and he suffered a heart attack trying to swim to shore.

Stanford Lake College is situated on the northern side of the R71. This Christian ethos school must have one of the most beautiful campuses in the country.

There are a number of lodges and other accommodation on the shores of the lake and in the surrounding forests. Popular activities include hiking, birding, mountain biking and, of course, fishing.
