Black Water Junction is a cable park located at Smith Mountain Lake in Virginia.We are family owned and operated and have worked hard to build a really fun and safe park for our guests. We have a beautiful 3 level pond with two wakeboard cables so there is something for riders of all skill levels.

What To Bring

• Board, life vest (Coast Guard Approved), and helmet (if you do not have your own equipment we offer rentals)
• Bathing suit
• Sunscreen
• Towel
• Beach chair


If under the age of 18 you need to either bring a notarized waiver or a legal guardian to sign for your first time here.
If you would like to print out a waiver click here.


We understand that coming to the cable park, especially for your first time, can be intimidating. We pride ourselves in having created a very stress free environment for all guests to come out and have a good time. If it is your first time we recommend jumping in to a quick lesson.

Riders can hop into open sessions at any time throughout the day. No equiptment? No problem, we have a full line of top quality equipment you can rent.


*We welcome riders of all ages. For younger riders (under the age of 8), we require a supervised run with one of our instructors, before they go off on their own.


Lessons are a great option for first timers or experienced riders looking to learn some new moves. Let our cpr/first aid certified instructors show you the ropes.


We have professional instructors in both wakeboarding and wakeskating. Beginner riders will start with an on shore instruction, then move on to learning how to get up from the dock. Hopefully by the end they’ll be cruising and learning their first tricks!

Experienced riders can take on a lesson how they want. Maybe you have a new trick in mind that you want to learn or you want to learn some techniques to getting more comfortable on the water. Whatever it may be our instructors will be there to help.

Intermediate/ Advanced Run

Beginner Run

The intermediate/ advanced run at Black Water Junction offers two consecutive drops followed by multiple obstacles in the bottom pond. The first drop is 2.5 ft making it a perfect gap for learning new tricks. The second gap sitting 150 ft after the first is a 4.5 ft drop for when you’re ready to go bigger. The bottom pond at Black Water Junction is 450 ft with plenty of room for tricks before turning around and riding back to the top.

The beginner run at Black Water Junction is a 450 ft run with no obstacles. This run is there for any riders wanting a lesson from one of our trained professionals or just wanting to learn flat water tricks without worry of obstacles in the way.
