We visit this area often. It's worth the trip if you want a beach feel and are in the area. There is a place to swim and bath houses. Also the have boat parking and ramp. You will need to bring towels, snacks and drinks . An umbrella also because shade is very limited.

I visited the area in late August. The weather was rather comfortable, but I did go early In the morning. No one was out and I had the mountain lake to myself so to speak. It was a quick trip but a rather beautiful spot to see.

Went from Millboro Springs to Lake Moomaw which is about an hour's drive. One time we went several years ago, hadn't had much rain during the year and the lake was all dried up. This time, however, lake was beautiful with different colors. Sandy beach had recently been raked and was very clean. When we go back next year, will... More

We spend most of our summers camping in the Western United States so a camping trip in Virginia was very different for us. The campground loop we stayed in is very well maintained and had 4 free showers and flush toilets. If you were a camper you didn't have to pay the $5 fee at the beach, which also had... More

Nice weather, great time with family and friends.... The boat rental was fun even though the boat stalled 3 times...... but the 2 people in charge that made a point of "visiting" our camp site in an effort to collect $40 that was credited to our boating fees as a curtesy OFFERED by the rental attendant were inconsiderate, rude and...

We spent some time at Lake Moomaw on a recent weekend trip to the VA mountains. The lake itself is very nice, and the facilities are well-kept and clean. As another reviewer mentioned, it is not the easiest lake to find, but the drives are very scenic, as well. So, as long as you are not in a rush, locating... More

This is a very nice lake to visit. Good fishing and places to swim and picnic. A little out of the way but worth the drive.
