Welcome To Beautiful Smith Mountain Lake, Virginia

     Smith Mountain Lake is without a doubt one of the most
beautiful residential-recreational lakes on the East Coast. It has
become home to a growing community of native Virginians as well
as many newcomers. Due to the area’s wide array of recreational
activities, mild climate, central location and breathtaking scenery;
Smith Mountain Lake has become a highly desired destination for
both full-time residents and vacationers alike.

 Location
    Smith Mountain Lake is nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of
beautiful Southwest Virginia. The lake has a total of over 500 miles
shoreline bordering Bedford, Franklin, and Pittsylvania Counties;
covering 20,600 surface acres. It’s central location makes it just a
short drive from many metropolitan areas along the east coast.

 Recreational Activities
    The lake provides us with many recreational opportunities that
include swimming, fishing, water skiing, wake boarding, golfing,
power boating, sailing, canoeing and jet skiing; just to name a few.
     Smith Mountain Lake is regularly stocked with many game fish,
earning it a reputation as one of the best all around fishing spots in
the eastern United States. The lake is known for its large number
of citation size fish; making it one of the hottest trophy fishing
lakes in the country and the site of many fishing tournaments.

 Climate
     Moderate temperatures, mild weather, and four distinct seasons make Smith Mountain Lake appealing to visit any time of the year. The average temperature is in the low to mid 80’s in the summer and the upper 30’s in the winter. Annual precipitation averages 41 inches of rain and 15 inches of snowfall.

 History
     Smith Mountain Lake was created by the construction of a
hydroelectric dam between the Smith Mountain Gap that was
completed on September 24, 1963. The 20,600 acre lake reached
“full pond” two and one-half years later on March 7, 1966 at 795
feet above sea level.
     The project makes maximum use of one of our planet’s most
precious natural resources, water, through a process called pumped storage. Water stored in Smith Mountain Lake first drops through the turbine generators in the Smith Mountain Dam power house to produce electricity. Instead of allowing all of the “used” water to run downstream, much is caught and held by Leesville Dam, the lower dam in the project, to be pumped back into Smith Mountain Lake later for re-use. A portion of the water goes through turbine generators at Leesville Lake; generating additional electricity.
