Camp beside the crystal-clear cerulean waters of Smith Mountain Lake, Virginia’s second-largest freshwater lake, and enjoy an assortment of aquatic activities. Here it’s a package deal: swimming and boat launch are free with camping! The campground is just a stone’s throw from the shore and has sites for tents and various types of RVs. If you’re looking for a swankier stay, camping cabin (AKA bunkhouse) digs are also available nearby. The park offers primitive, hike-in sites for those lookin’ to vacay in the backcountry.
