One of the best activities to enjoy when visiting Smith Mountain Lake is spending time on the water. It should come as no surprise that the namesake of our travel destination is the top draw for visitors. Smith Mountain Lake offers plenty of space for individuals to enjoy boating around the lake.

Houseboats and Larger Vehicles
