Lake Wylie isn't actually an incorporated community. Rather, it's what's known as a Census Designated Place (CDP). This means there is no formal city government, but the U.S. Census Bureau does keep track of area demographics.
Located on a peninsula of Lake Wylie, the community of Lake Wylie is home to nearly 12,000 people and close to five square miles of land and water.
