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 the lake can be a part of the relaxing trip. We chose to picnic near one of the swim areas because most of the picnic areas were offset from the lake, with no views of the lake. However, there are picnic tables right next to the lake near the marina, which we discovered on a second trip to the lake after our picnic. We saw deer several times while we were driving around the lake, as well as red squirrel and chipmunks. This is a very lovely lake in the mountains, and is a great option for taking in the mountain views without having to hike. Many of the parking areas to access the picnic and swim areas are honor pay.
