SUMMERSVILLE LAKE Summersville Lake

Summersville Lake

This Corp of Engineers lake is located near Beckley, WV. 

Known as the Winter Boat Ramp, the entrance is very easy as it is a road bed.  During the winter the lake is lowered by about 90 feet to provide the waters for white water rafting and to prepare for the spring snow thaws. This road leads to the boat ramp in winter.  In the summer the road is closed and makes a great entrance area.  Very popular with divers and swimmers in the summer.


There is not a lot to see where we go in but there are interesting rock formations, a sunken boat, and a platform. It's also a good place for deep training as it slopes quickly to well over 100 feet with good visibility.
