Scenic Summersville is found in the heart of West Virginia surrounded by water it's been called Little Bahamas of the East. The Summersville Lake is the largest in West Virginia, with miles of shoreline to explore plus ares of water to enjoy by boat or other water sports.
There is the lake, and all that comes with in the way of water based activities, but there is also history close by. Check out Carnifex Ferry Battlefield State Park, an official Civil War Discovery site (the site of a 1861 battle where confederates failed to get control of the Kanawha Valley) or learn more at the Patterson House Museum.
Summersville Lake is also home to the only working lighthouse in West Virginia! Climb the spiral stairs to the top and gaze on panoramic views, come at sunset for maximum beauty.
On the Lake itself of course you can enjoy tours of the waterways, rent paddle boards, kayaks and go snorkeling and swimming. At the nearby Gauley River you can also find some high class rapids for water rafting.
Why not come in September for The Annual Kirkwood Winery Grape Stomping Wine Festival? It's a fun few celebration of West Virginia Wine with music and art. Or try June for the West Virginia Quilt Festival!
