Description

Parents, it’s time to pack a picnic, toss the kids in the car, and enjoy an easy day (or whole weekend) trip to Sherando Lake Recreation Area. This easily accessible recreation area is the perfect place for that ever-so-fun family photo op; with a 25-acre lake for splashing in and plenty of woods to explore, visitors of all ages can’t help but drink it all in with a sigh of complete comfort. It’s no heart of the ocean, but jewel of the Blue Ridge? That’ll do nicely.

Campsites have lots of space between sites if you like privacy. All campsites have a bear proof box so you don't have to store your coolers and food in the car. Trails up the mountain next to the lake provide nice views of the lake below.
