Smith Mountain Lake is southeast of the city of Roanoke Virginia. In 1963, the Smith Mountain Dam was built on the Roanoke River creating the largest lake wholly located within the state of Virginia.
That’s all the time we have for this one-day excursion. The sun is setting, and it is time to head back to the launch ramp. Smith Mountain is a beautiful lake with a lot of water to explore. I hope you enjoyed this mini tour and thanks for visiting the BBZ.
