Whether you are looking to rent a pontoon boat, ski on some glass water, or just sit on a sandy beach, the lakes that make up the Roanoke Region are spectacular. So come on out, play, and get wet.
Our lakes have it all from a large lake with miles of shoreline — Smith Mountain Lake is the largest in Virginia! — or a small lake where you can get away. And there’s plenty to do: Pile your friends onto a pontoon boat, load your rod and tackle box into a fishing boat, or try your hand at wakeboarding or stand up paddling; you can even rent a house boat for an overnight stay.
Black Water Junction Wake Park is the ideal venue to try wakeboarding or wakeskating for the first time, or take your riding skills to the next level.

Located on Smith Mountain Lake, Bridgewater Marina rents canoes and kayaks from Smith Mountain Lake State Park.
