Summersville Lake, West Virginia's largest lake, is surrounded by 60 mi/97 km of shoreline. The waters of the Gauley River, fed by the Williams, Cranberry and Cherry rivers (all popular for trout fishing) are pooled into a lake with 2,790 acres/1,129 hectares of surface water. Bubbles Cove and Long Point are favorite spots for snorkeling and scuba diving in what Skin Diver magazine refers to as "The Little Bahamas of the east." With hiking, biking, rock climbing, golf, camping, swimming, fishing and boating all available, it is no wonder Summersville is referred to as "The Gateway to Adventure."
Also in the area are the Kirkwood Winery and the Isaiah Morgan Distillery, where you can get a taste of moonshine and other spirits. Another attraction is the Gauley River Pottery, with its unique and well-crafted pieces. 90 mi/145 km east of Charleston.
