Hot Spot

Summersville Lake | Aug. 11-15, 2022

Summersville, WV

Managed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Summersville Lake is a reservoir located in Summersville, WV. As West Virginia’s largest lake, it boasts ample recreation opportunities including boating, fishing, swimming, water-skiing, picnicking, hunting, biking and more. As a popular destination, impacts from recreation have been increasing over the years including litter, trail erosion, undesignated trail use, as well as vandalism and theft. For the Hot Spot activation, the Subaru/Leave No Trace Team will be at Summersville Lake leading a variety of workshops, outreach programs and community events, including opportunities for community involvement. Check back for more information as we work to finalize dates and program offerings.

*Summersville Lake is located on the ancestral lands of the S’atsoyaha (Yuchi), Moneton and possibly other tribes*
