History – Located on the Dinwiddie-Chesterfield county line, the name of the lake comes from the combination of the two county names (Chesterfield- Dinwiddie). The lake was man-made in 1968 during the construction of the George F. Brasfield Dam on the Appomattox River. The lake provides water and power to citizens of Chesterfield, Prince George, and Dinwiddie boating

Fishing – Lake Chesdin is home to a wide array of fish. The lake is most notable for its supply of largemouth bass with some reporting to be over 20-inches long. There is also an abundant supply of crappie, walleye, bluegill, channel catfish, and more. Lake Chesdin offers a public 24-hour boat launch and 3 marinas for all your fishing needs.
