Smith Mountain Lake, Virginia

At Smith Mountain Lake, you'll find wonderful places and people. Our area's great natural beauty--from the waters and woods to the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia--is the perfect destination for your very own style of fun, whether you seek days full of activities or just plain relaxing.

Vacationers come from all over to fish, enjoy the water sports and play on the 500 miles of shoreline. They usually end up discovering many unexpected delights. Friendly people and genuine hospitality make everyone feel welcome and there’s always something new to do. World-class historical sites, unique shopping opportunities from antiques to art galleries, the latest fashions, fantastic dining and entertainment options, and simply sitting back and enjoying the glorious scenery make everyday complete. Sound too good to be true? Just wait until you see our beautiful sunsets.

Be forewarned though….once you visit, you may not want to leave. In fact, our little community of 22,000 has grown in large part to the many vacationers who have decided to relocate permanently. The weather, our central location and a small town atmosphere make Smith Mountain Lake an excellent place to raise a family, start a business, or retire.
