Visit Altavista and the surrounding area


Visit some of our personal favorites in and around Altavista.


Altavista YMCA: 

 The Altavista Area YMCA was founded in 1971 making the community of Altavista the smallest town in America with a YMCA. Today the YMCA encompasses almost three city blocks and over 65,000 square feet of facilities valued at over $5 million dollars. The physical complex consists of the Family Center built in 1972 and the Athletic Center constructed in 1994.


Avoca Museum: 

  Avoca is the home place of  Revolutionary Patriot Colonel  Charles Lynch. The house is an  excellent example of 19th Century  American Queen Anne architecture.  The property is listed on both the  Virginia and National Registers of  Historic Places. It was given to the  Town of Altavista in the 1980s, and is  operated by the non-profit Avoca  Museum and Historical Society.


Leesville Lake: 

 Leesville Lake is part of the Smith  Mountain hydro-electric pump storage  project on the Roanoke River built by  AEP in the early 1960's. It begins at  the base of Smith Mountain Dam and  snakes 17 miles to Leesville Dam  which is just upstream from Leesville  Virginia and the mouth of Goose  Creek. It is the "lower" lake of the  pump storage system and lake levels  fluctuate between 600 ft to 613 ft  above mean sea level. The lake covers  3,270 acres containing 94,900 acre-  feet of water at full pond.



Smith Mountain Lake: 

 Virginia's second largest lake,  offers superb recreational  activities, 500 miles of waterfront  shoreline, a wide variety of water  sports, and very affordable  vacation rentals.
