Nearby is Smith Mountain Lake, Virginia's largest lake and western Virginia's biggest playground. The recreational opportunities are outstanding with boating and fishing being the most popular. The lake holds the state record for citation striped bass. Smith Mountain Lake encompasses over 40 miles, 20,000 acres of water, and is surrounded by 500 miles of shoreline.

 The Blue Ridge Parkway

The Parkway idea came out of the Great Depression as a way to link Shenandoah and Great Smoky Mountains national parks by way of a recreational motor road. It was constructed in segments, usually from one major access point to another. Construction began in 1935 near the North Carolina - Virginia border and ended with completion of the section around Grandfather Mountain in 1987. The 469-mile Parkway preserves the natural and cultural features along its path and reveals the tremendous diversity of our southern Appalachian region. Since April 1939, over 600 million visits have been recorded, an average of almost 10 million a year, or 27,000 a day! From the profusion of wildflowers in spring to the spectacular color of autumn, each season unveils the character and splendor of the park. And the Blue Ridge Parkway is just minutes from our Camp.
