Overview

Overview

Cave Mountain Lake Family Camp is nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, offering a rustic and peaceful camping getaway. Easy interstate access, close proximity to historic Lexington and access to Natural Bridge make Cave Mountain Lake an ideal spot.

Natural Features:

Cave Mountain Lake covers seven acres and was built in the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps, using existing buttresses of natural rock to form a 35-foot dam. A grassy field extends from the lake's sandy beach, and hills lush with hardwood and conifer trees paint a scenic backdrop.

Recreation:

Visitors enjoy fishing, swimming and relaxing on the beach at Cave Mountain Lake. Birding and wildlife viewing opportunities abound.

Hiking trails surround the area, offering everything from a short walk around the lake to a full day hike along the nearby ridges. Backpackers enjoy the Appalachian National Scenic Trail and the James River Face and the Thunder Ridge Wilderness areas.

Facilities:

Cave Mountain Lake offers 28 reservable campsites and 13 campsites remain first-come, first-serve only. Amenities at each campsite include a picnic table, lantern post and campfire ring with grill. Flush toilets and water spigots are located throughout the campground.

Nearby Attractions:

Lexington, Virginia, just 20 minutes away, is home to the gravesites of Stonewall Jackson and Robert E. Lee. It's a charming town with conveniences like grocery stores and gas stations. Ice and other sundries can be found at small stores along State Route 759.
