“Outstand beach”

Smith Mountain Lake State Park
Attraction details
Reviewed July 10, 2012

The beach has always been clean and well maintained each time I have visited with my Grandchildren. There are life guards on duty and safe areas are well marked. Outstanding snack bar and the prices most certainly seemed reasonable. Great for all ages!

We stayed a week in the cabins,it was such a great week. The park is well maintained,very clean. You feel very secure,the park police are constantly driving through checking things out. The cabins are extremely nice, cute & comfortable.. the staff is extremely friendly and very helpful. So many things to do in the park and on the lake. Loved the hiking trails and the lakes water is so clear. I would recommend this park to everybody. Such a great place to stay. The park rangers and staff are amazing. Thanks for a great week.

My husband, myself, sister and brother-in-law, as well as 6 other friends are RV enthusiasts. Our first love is Virginia State Parks for their beauty, accessibility, historical interest and relaxation. For Easter break, we travelled about 5 1/2 hours with our RVs to SML. This is an absolutely beautiful, pastoral, scenic destination. Even if you do a day trip, it is worth the time. The lake is beautiful. We plan to come back in the summer, because the place apparently ROCKS then. There are local wineries for wine tasting, historical homes and the D-Day Memorial is in nearby historic Bedford, VA. Fishing is good and there is a beach access during the summer. You can rent or launch your own boat, rent house boats or take a boat tour of the lake. The locals are glad you came! Virginia State Parks are for LOVERS!
