Where are the hidden gems or unique spots to visit in Lake Moomaw, VA?
Hidden Gems

Located at the Omni Homestead Resort, the Jefferson Pools are warm springs that legend says were discovered by Native Americans hundreds of years ago. Archeological projects have discovered that humans have been using the pools for at least 9,000 years. Thomas and Andrew Lewis first surveyed the land when they purchased 140 acres in the area. Andrew was an early partner of Thomas Bullett and he constructed the first hotel on the site in 1766. The Gentleman’s Pool House, constructed in 1761, is the oldest spa structure in the country and, despite its name, could be used by both women and men, although they were not permitted to use the pool at the same time.  You can find the pools at 7696 Sam Snead Highway in Hot Springs, just about 10 minutes from Lake Moomaw.

If you truly want to get away from it all, Greenwood Point is the best place to do that. There is no road access, which means you must hike, paddle or canoe to the site. There are wooded campsites available with lake views, but they are primitive.
