What makes Smith Mountain Lake so special? Finding paradise in a quiet lake community in southwestern Virginia is an unexpected pleasure! Smith Mountain Lake, Virginia, pleasantly surprises visitors each year by embodying all the qualities of a perfect retreat. From its expansive 20,600-acre body of pristine water with its serene Blue Ridge Mountain backdrop, to each of its convenient and charming townships, Smith Mountain Lake is idyllic. Here, our guests and residents have unrestrained access to refreshing boat excursions, thrilling explorations, heart-pumping water sports and top-notch fishing; and that’s only within the lake’s 500 miles of shoreline! Equally engaging activities and attractions await off the water, including bustling dining locations, renowned golf courses, historic monuments, eclectic shopping and fun-filled events. The excitement of a recreational lake next to the gorgeous Appalachians is what attracts our visitors. However, it is Smith Mountain Lake’s irresistible tranquility and inviting atmosphere that captures the hearts of new residents. I understand these strong feelings completely! There is nowhere else I would rather live, work and play. We are thrilled you have come to explore Virginia’s “Jewel of the Blue Ridge,” Smith Mountain Lake. While you are here, the most up-to-date information is available by logging on to our website, VisitSmithMountainLake.com, or by downloading the MyChamber app for smartphones. Enjoy discovering the treasures of Smith Mountain Lake, soon celebrating its 50th anniversary. You are in for an unforgettable experience.

here is no better way to experience Smith Mountain Lake than by getting out on it! The lake’s open bodies and sprawling channels offer an irresistible invitation to play, sightsee and relax in a breathtaking setting. Visitors will appreciate how easy it is to get on the water at Smith Mountain Lake, where local marinas offer everything needed to guarantee your family – from the youngest to the oldest – has a blast! Friendly marina employees can provide great ideas to make the most of a day on the lake. You may want to take the kids out for the time of their lives bouncing on an inflatable. Or perhaps a sunset cruise to dinner at a waterfront restaurant is more your speed. Anglers will surely want to gather up fishing gear and cast to their heart’s content. And the family athlete will love to crank up the adrenaline with a heart-pounding wakeboard or ski session. No matter how you choose to spend your time on the water, we can assure you’ll leave wanting to return … or stay forever.
Watercraft Tips for Boat Captains Jim shauberger
Boating at SML is always an adventure. Lake marinas and boat rental companies offer a wide variety of recreational vessels, including spacious and leisurely pontoons, speedboats, sporting craft and fishing schooners. If you’re planning a summer trip, be sure to secure your rental well ahead of time. Those who will be driving the boat will want to check the latest Virginia watercraft operation laws as they have changed recently. See Page 36.
Personal watercraft are known to provide an exciting ride and quick access from one on-water destination to another. PWCs (also known as jet skis, SeaDoos and wave runners) are built to accommodate one, two or three riders, and some are powerful enough to tow skiers or wakeboarders. Virginia has laws specifically for PWC drivers and riders, so be sure you are familiar with the latest requirements. See Page 37.
• Observe lake markers and no-wake zone markers • Display lights sunset to sunrise • No wake allowed near swimmers, docks and other boats • Drive to the right of center, passing oncoming boats should be port (left side) to port • Maintain a safe speed • Make eye contact or wave to other skippers to acknowledge awareness of each other’s presence and direction of travel. • Travel at lower-thannormal speeds in heavy traffic, at night and other times of low visibility.

• Avoid creating large displacement wakes while close to shore or running in small coves.
houseboat may be one of the most distinctive and memorable ways to spend time at Smith Mountain Lake. With this type of rental accommodation, your family will gain the full benefits of lake recreation and have even more time to explore the lakeâ€™s landscape while journeying from landmark to landmark. Houseboats come with standard lodging amenities such as kitchen, bathroom with shower, heating and air, fresh water and room to sleep 6-10. In addition, houseboats are designed for outdoor recreation, equipped with water slides, grills and outdoor furniture and prepped to carry all the swimming, fishing and water activity gear you may need. Because houseboats are a popular option at Smith Mountain Lake, you will want to secure your rental early and ensure the amenities you want are available. If a houseboat vacation at Smith Mountain Lake suits you, contact the areaâ€™s rental company well in advance.

sleek sailboat gliding across the water is one of the most captivating sights at Smith Mountain Lake. Loved by both sportsman and casual cruiser, a sailboat’s passengers are both challenged by tasks such as tacking and steering and soothed by its graceful motion. Sailing enthusiasts share a special camaraderie at SML where the sport has steadily gained popularity with locals and visitors.

Inflatable riding toys are popular on Smith Mountain Lake, and a guaranteed way to produce lots of giggles and memories. Children especially love bouncy rides on towables, which come in all shapes, colors and sizes. Local marinas and sporting goods retailers stock up for the summer, allowing visitors to purchase or rent their favorites. When towing adults or children, be sure to adhere to basic safety principles. Always wear a lifejacket, regardless of age. Only use inflatables during daylight hours, and always use an observer who can alert the boat driver if he or she needs to slow down or stop. frances pratt

urking in the underwater world of Smith Mountain Lake is one of its biggest draws. Within our dynamic, 20,600-acre reservoir is an abundance of popular game fish, including black bass, catfish, white perch, crappie, sunfish and carp. But the prized catch – striped bass – is what attracts fishermen of all skill levels to SML year-round. “There aren’t many places in the country that can support good striped bass,” says Dan Wilson, fisheries biologist with the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries. “Smith Mountain Lake is the premier striped bass fishery in the state and one of the premier striper fisheries on the East Coast.” So whether you’re a casual weekend angler or aspire to the professional tour, Smith Mountain Lake’s easy access, variety of fish species and distinctive underwater habitat make it an ideal fishing destination.
