Lake James State Park is where you want to go if you own a boat. It’s where you want to go if your friend owns a boat. Heck, hit up that distant relative who has a boat and see if they’re game. Because boating around the massive Lake James is simply the best time you’ll have this summer. Tube, waterski, wakeboard or just zip laps around the lake in your speedboat. Although with 150 miles of shoreline, one lap will probably do the trick.

Turn your eyes away from the lake and you’ll see the glorious Appalachian Mountains vying for your attention. Should they succeed and you decide to leave the cool waters of Lake James, you’ll be thankful you did. The scenic vistas, rugged trails and wildlife that await you in the hills are not to be missed. Plus, with most people staying lakeside, you’ll be able to escape the crowds and enjoy a peaceful retreat in the forest.
