Lake Willoughby

Willoughby Lake is the deepest lake in the area, making for lots of different stories, some true and some maybe not. Either way it is surrounded with mysteries. Picturesque Willoughby Gap supports two mountains (Mt. Pisgah and Mt. Hor) for hiking or ice climbing and each offers spectacular views from the top. Scuba divers love to explore the depths of Willoughby Lake, swimmers enjoy the cleanliness, boaters enjoy the expanse and fishermen enjoy the record size fish. There are three beaches for entertainment; one nice sandy beach is located at the north end of the lake which is the largest and most popular and the other two are at the south end. One is a family beach across the road from White Caps Campground (http://www.whitecapscampground.com/) and the other, for those so inclined, is a nudist beach.  For rentals and restaurant try the Willoughvale Inn and Cottages (www.willoughvale.com).
