Make a splash or be a landlubber. While Smith Mountain Lake is famous for all kinds of boating, water sports, swimming, fishing and other water related activities, on shore you will find plenty to occupy your time as well. Golf, tennis, hiking and horseback riding are perfect for the athletic type while adventure seekers can even find thrills like parasailing and skydiving.

And best of all, the lake is a convenient and central base for touring nearby wineries, historical sites or a day of sightseeing along the scenic Blue Ridge Parkway.
