Mountain Lakes

The lakes of this region – Stonewall Jackson, Stonecoal, Summersville, Sutton, and Burnsville— all offer outdoor fun for everyone. Enjoy swimming, snorkeling, water-skiing, and boating on all five. Fishing, hunting, biking, and bird watching are popular here, and rock climbers love the ledges at Summersville Lake. This region also holds an abundance of arts, crafts, and boutique shopping. Admirers of handcrafted glass can visit factories, outlets, a glass museum and watch individual artisans in action.
