Family fun

Nice plaza though it's too bad there are so many vacant store fronts. The miniature golf over the lake is fun. The gifts shops, ice cream parlor and gallery are always nice.

Have rented boats for the past two years. Nice boats, great service. No problems at all. Would recommend making your boat reservations early

There is many things to do on the Bridgewater! There is something for the whole entire family. The little miniature golf is super cute. Food and dessert is great! Must see!!

First time here this past week. We rented a speed boat. It was in great condition. The staff was nice and after we watched a short video on safety we were ready to go. The employee explained everything we would need to know about how the boat worked etc. We will surely rent from them again!

We were initially here to eat at Moosies, but it was a great place to walk around. There were other restaurants and shops, as well as a huge marina. The marina offers a variety of boats for rental.

Bridgewater Plaza has quite a few shops and restaurants and offers boat rentals, but the reason to come here is for the catfish. There is a large school of catfish that lives by the docks at the marina, and the store right next... More

My husband, two daughters and I went out on a pontoon boat for Mother's Day. Everyone was very friendly, and the boat was nice and clean. We had a wonderful time!

If you visit Smith Mountain Lake then you will visit Bridgewater Plaza and Bridgewater Marina. Everything happens here; rent boats, pizza, miniature golf, art gallery, feed the fish, burgers, beer, shops, water toys, gasoline, real estate, etc. etc. What more can I say, this is the focal point where everything happens on the lake.
