Summersville Lake Multi-Sport Adventure


A vacation in West Virginia is incomplete without a day spent on Summersville Lake, a breathtakingly serene body of water with undeveloped cliffs, crystal clear water, and stunning canyon views. ACE Adventure, the #1 adventure resort in North America, has prime access to Summersville Lake. Choose the Summersville Lake Multi-Sport Adventure this summer and learn how to rock climb high above the lake’s surface, explore the coves on a SUP or a sit-on-top kayak, and snorkel in the crystal clear lake water.

Crystal Clear Cliff-Lined Lake

Summersville is the largest lake in West Virginia. It was created in the early 1960s to prevent the Gauley River from flooding the region. The Summersville Dam is the second largest rockfill dam in the eastern U.S. The result is an aquatic playground with refreshingly cool mountain water so pure you can snorkel while you swim. Embark on a pontoon ride into the still waters of Summersville and begin your journey into the most scenic lake in West Virginia.

World-Renowned Rock Climbing

Climbers travel from Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Columbus, Louisville, Charlotte, and far beyond to scale our unspoiled cliffs. ACE is world-renowned for its rock climbing locales, and Summersville Lake is particularly special for beginners. Some of West Virginia’s premier beginner routes can be climbed at Summersville Lake. Even if you’ve never rock climbed in your life, our experienced staff is sure to push you to the top! And the views on the bluffs are genuinely one-in-a-million.
