Smith Mountain Lake State Park is right on the lake and has a boat landing for all kinds of boats. Only problem with SML is that it gets crowded on weekends all over the lake. If you can get there during the week, you would have it all to yourself.

Link to Smith Mountain Lake State Park website:

Maybe things have changed over the years, but you may want to check out Ed Allen's a little bit more. A phone call should suffice. It sort of sticks in my mind that he has two venues. The one I am talking about is the one associated with the link I posted, and is located on Chickahominy Lake. The last time I was there, some years ago, I rented one of their jon boats with a six HP motor. Notice in the picture of the restaurant, under amenities, what appear to be boats (with outboards) pulled up on shore.

Also suggest you Google "Buggs Island". (Kerr Reservoir) Good fishing and I suspect powerboats are allowed.


FWIW - the Eastern Shore campgrounds tend to be a bit on the pricey side.

yeah they have a place on the Chick as well......it's pretty close to where I live now, and Jetskis would essentially need to lock through to the river and then get into the james. We go to Lake Gaston a lot, so Buggs Island is right around the corner....I don't mind pricey, you actually gave me a few ideas about maybe heading out that way for a fall trip.
