Boat Launch & Marinas

Cheat Lake is a great place to go boating and enjoy a sunny weekend.  If you are new to the lake please review the map below.  Also over the last few years the lake has added some great restaurants.  Please keep in mind that some places on the lake are narrow so please be respectful of other boaters and be aware of your surroundings.  Please don't litter or leave trash at the lake.
