This was our first trip to SML and it was awesome! We have not been camping in years and our daughter never before. We forgot what we were missing! The campsites are great, the entire park is well maintained! Our young daughter loved it. The playgrounds are great, the beach is very nice and it was so convenient to rent... More

We recently did a day visit to SMLSP, primarily for hiking. After a lovely hike about, with very convenient parking at the trail head, we also drove around the park to see all the facilities. We had a nice break at the fishing pier (bathrooms and soda machines there too), stopped to see the tobacco barn, and went in the... More

Area around the lake is beautiful. Boating on the lake was a wonderful experience for our family. We engaged in a variety of water sports and swam. The water was very clean.

Smith Mountain lake is a beautiful setting that unfortunately has become overdeveloped with housing and rental units. However, the state park retains the charm that I remember when this lake was less developed. The trails are well maintained and pleasant forested walks. The beach area has excellent swimming. Many of the coves alongside the trails offer small beaches that are... More

They were one of the only campgrounds that actually had tent camping. They were very friendly, had a lot of spots to swim, and had a lot of dock access. The camp sites were a good distant from each other so you had privacy. They have huge showers, and great maintenance for the rest areas. If we ever stop back... More

It was a beautiful day and the park offered several hiking trails. After asking the employee at the visitor center for the best trails to see the lake, she suggested a couple. They were moderate trails and offered beautiful views of the lake. It was definitely worth the visit.

We really loved this park and the campground. We must thank a friend who planned a wedding party in the area because we would not have stayed here otherwise. The campground is away from other activities in the park, which reduces traffic in/out and makes it feel a bit more secure. The campground is set up with a nice loop... More

I'm so incredibly thrilled with this place that I'm going to go the extra mile on this review to help others and spread the good word! Campground: • Tent sites - awesome! Large areas with nice rock beds for the largest of tents, with both picnic table and fire pit also on the rocks, especially nice when hit with heavy... More
