Your guide to Smith Mountain Lake

All About Smith Mountain Lake

With 500 miles of shoreline set against a backdrop of raw natural beauty, this slice of southwest Virginia is perfect for outdoor adventuring. Smith Mountain Lake is a year-round destination with a little something for everyone, be it mountain biking, paddleboarding, golfing, wine tasting, or strawberry picking. On the lake itself, you’ll be privy to 22,000 acres of sparkling blue water and lake rentals galore. Initially created by the damming of the nearby Roanoke and Blackwater rivers, this manmade lake has become a favorite of summer travelers for its vast shoreline, still waters, and small-town charm. Families come back here year after year, with many people from surrounding cities choosing to call Smith Mountain Lake their second home.


When is the best time to stay in a vacation rental in Smith Mountain Lake?

Smith Mountain Lake is a nice place to be in summer, when the weather is hot enough to fully enjoy the cobalt blue waters and fresh air. Many travelers plan their vacations around Memorial Day and stay all the way through to Labor Day. If you’d rather experience Smith Mountain Lake at a quieter time without giving up the warmer weather, the weeks leading up to and those right after summer are your best bet. It will also give you the chance to take part in some wonderful celebrations like the annual Wine Festival in late September, the Beer & Barbeque Festival in May, or experience the magic of bluegrass at the Jubal Early Bluegrass Festival in late August.
