Sprawling lakes dot the mountain valleys, calling you splash and play. Go for a dip! Swim along the shorelines, or even dive deep and SCUBA dive to explore far below the surface. For a real treat, the kids can whip down waterslides or play lake games at ACE Adventure Lake.

West Virginia fishing is some of the best in the nation. Catch trout, catfish, bluegill and more from the banks or a boat. Local guides can show you all the fishes’ favorite spots.

Stand-up paddleboarding is a popular new activity to try, and it only takes a few minutes for anyone to learn. You can also sit back to explore, with a kayak or canoe trip. Want everyone to enjoy the float? Maybe you need a bigger boat! There’s plenty of room to lounge on a pontoon with all your friends.
