Overview

Summersville Lake Shelters are conveniently located just south of Summersville, West Virginia, on the shores of the largest lake in the state.

Superb water quality and sheer sandstone cliffs make Summersville Lake a popular destination for outdoor enthusiasts.

Natural Features:

Scenic Summersville Lake is known for its striking cliffs and quiet coves along 60 beautiful miles of shoreline. Dense forests of maple, oak, hickory, beech and birch trees cover the region.

Wildlife, including black bear, deer, grouse and turkey, is abundant in the area.

The 2700-acre lake provides excellent boating, water skiing, swimming and scuba diving.

Anglers will find large and smallmouth bass, walleye, panfish, and catfish. Trout are stocked below the dam in spring and fall.

Visitors also enjoy the great hiking, biking, hunting and picnicking opportunities on the lands surrounding the lake.

Whitewater rafting is available year-round on the world class Gauley River. The Summersville Lake area also offers technical rock climbing.
