Tucked on the southwestern tip of Virginia, Lee County is made up of three towns: Pennington Gap, St. Charles, and Jonesville. Lee County is fortunate to be nestled in the beautiful Appalachian Mountains, and the miles of unspoiled mountain views will leave visitors in awe.
A jet charter airport in Lee County brings visitors to a place where natural beauty abounds. Stop at the White Rocks that give visitors an unspoiled view across the Virginian horizon. Want to make your way to the top of the White Rocks? Start your hike at the Thomas Walker Civic Park.
Lake Keokee offers a place to cool down in the summer heat and a 3.7-mile walking trail to enjoy the vibrant foliage in the fall. The 92-acre lake is well stocked with largemouth bass, bluegill, and catfish for anglers who are eager to reel in the catch of the day.
Lee County makes up a side of the once-strategic Cumberland Gap. The 20,000-acre park acted as the first gateway to the West, and was used for westward-bound pioneers. While both the North and the South tried to gain control of the Gap during the Civil War, today hosts 70 miles of hiking trails, ranger programs, and tours of Gap Cave and the Hensley Settlement.
When you need to refuel after a long day of outdoor activities, stop into any of the local restaurants to be served by friendly locals. El Castillo, The Dutch Treat, and the Ben Hur Cafe are always a must-visit!
