Smith Mountain Lake, Virginia

Smith Mountain Lake is Virginia’s second largest lake and Virginia’s most popular spot for a lake getaway. SML (as the locals call it) is known as “Jewel of the Blue Ridge Mountains” and features 20,600 acres of recreation, watersports, and aquatic enjoyment. The lake is a popular spot for power boating, sailing, canoeing, fishing, paddleboarding, waterskiing, wakeboarding, jetskiing, and more!

Off the water in the beautiful and gentle mountain landscape, enjoy four golf courses, hiking in SML State Park, or a nice lakeside picnic. The area has great shopping and dining and is particularly known for great antiquing finds!
