Large lake

We stayed at a local campground and found it very peaceful. The lake was huge with many branches. We drove to the dam area and was not impressed.

Water changes color with Season and changing weather. Beautiful moon rise... More

The Smith Lake area is beautiful. Some many large homes along the shoreline that are gorgeous to look at. Swimming, boating, water sports and fishing are all available in the tri-county area.Trout fishing below the dam can be a wonderful experience.

We scheduled a tour of the Smith Lake Dam with two teenaged boys and it was very informative. The employee who led us on the tour was extremely willing to explain the workings of this site and went out of his way to accommodate us. It was a good experience and we would recommend it to others-you need to call... More

This is one of the nicest lakes in the United States. Crystal clear water - rated second cleanest lake in the US dammed lake system. Great for boating, tubing, surfing, floating and sightseeing. Rock cliffs are amazing. Bring the whole family.
