This was our first experience in our new 36' motorhome and our first experience with NC State Parks. We would highly recommend the campground and plan on staying there again soon.
There was plenty of room to back our rig into our lake front site.
Restroom was clean.
We had some shade but the site we were on gets a good amount of sun in the evenings from across the lake.
No issues with the electric but we did have to use 50' of hose to get to the water hookup.
Covered trash can on the site and they picked up each day.
Neighbors were friendly and quiet.
We enjoyed watching the boats on the lake since we weren't having much luck fishing.
We had six adults (19-87) and three small dogs with us and everyone seemed to enjoy the weekend at the lake. Looking forward to our next visit in July. - TBonz

Quiet during the week; picturesque, lots of trees, we were almost alone in the park. Rate reflects senior discount. Very clean & well maintained baths & showers. Helpful resident camper. Don't know if the atmosphere changes on weekends or in the summer, but we loved the place and will return. - cbcon2

BULLOCKSVILLE – one of several parks on N.C. Kerr Lake State Recreation Area (SRA). Roads are paved, but sites are gravel. (Many sites require 50-100 ft of hose to reach the water!) All sites are at least partially shaded and have good picnic tables, fire-rings. Bathrooms were okay, and kept clean. Good beach area for kids. Boat ramp with dock adjacent to the camping area. Many good water front sites and many inner-loop sites have a view of the lake. We would camp here again. - NCRambler

Typical state park. Only 2 antenna channels and no wifi. Very quiet (off season) with spacious back-in sites. Lake was very high with water from Hurricane Matthew. Water and electric hookups worked well. Lots of room to walk the dog, just make sure you pick up after them. Not all dog owners follow the leash rules. Young lady at the gate seemed disinterested in her job. Camp host was friendly. Dump station entry was a little tight for a long 5er. - TH travelers

One of the best areas on Kerr lake. Going back again in June. The camp host was very helpful and checked in with us several times to offer assistance. The park was very clean and the other campers we interacted with were really nice. We plan on going back as much as possible. Great staff too! - Birddog2you

This place is a hidden gem, at least based on the reviews on this site which are few and far between for Kerr Lake. Maybe some stay away because of the "Army Corp" designation, I don't know but this is at the very top of the list of places I have travelled with my 31 foot MH. I'm in the final day of my stay right now, parked literally 10 feet from the water, listening to the small waves break on the shore. I love this place so much I just made four reservations for next year. I'm in Kimball Point 2 which has decent space between sites as opposed to 1 which is a little more "communal" but still exceptional. A 20 foot walk from my door is a small sandy beach area where I've been throwing the ball for my Chessy to the point where he's exhausted:) I realize it's late in the season (in fact, the last weekend this particular campground is open until spring) but it's quiet, clean and the views are just stunning. Power and water are perfect. OTA TV is hit or miss and you'll be lucky to get any major channels, but my Directv dish is working fine with my southern exposure:) I'm not a fisherman, but everyone else here is catching catfish like they're jumping into the boats. Every site has trashcans which are emptied daily, and the park rangers are very present and making regular rounds, even on this last weekend. That's a nice feeling. If you haven't given this place a shot, you're missing out. - RVAJeff

I have been traveling for a month in my RV and this has been my favorite place so far...... What an absolutely gorgeous place to camp! So cheap too!!! - Lots of spots right on the water. Large shady trees. Sites are far apart. Fire pit. Picnic table. Electric and water at site. Dump on the way out. There is a gas station just a mile down the road if you need anything. There was a bald eagle that stopped by every evening after catching his fish for the night .... Random things to mention, other campers mentioned that you should call the park to check the water level before booking. Many visited in the Spring when the lake flooded the campsites and on my stay, the water was very very low leaving 100 feet to the beach. Also, the sites seem very un-level, depending on where you are. If I came back, the BEST SITES with a view are: 54 (water on three sides!!!!! It is magic!!!!) And 40 and 39 are beautiful sites on the water. - Londonandrews

Fee reflects $20 for weekday, off season for E/W plus $3 transaction fee. On the good side, this campground is on a pretty lake. Lots of good shade. Sites are gravel, most fairly level. Nice walks through the campground. Very handy to I-85, and open year-round. However, there is only one shower/bathhouse for the entire campground (over 100 sites), including a number of tent sites that would have no choice but to use the facilities. I don't normally mark down a campground for bathhouses that aren't particularly clean because you never know who is cleaning it that week and maybe the next week it will be spotless. This one, though, was filthy, with mold on the shower walls. General grounds upkeep left a lot to be desired, too. The leaves were so thick I could only identify the campground road by the lack of trees and the sites by their post markers. Perhaps the campground is kept up better during the season. I sure do hope so! Meanwhile, at least it is a handy place to stop if traveling along I-85 near the VA-NC border. - aowcarol

A nice state park campground. Location was awesome with plenty of sites with great views. The most level sites appear to be on the inner loops. Our loop had lots of construction as they are removing trees and replacing the sites with new timbers and gravel. No cable, and we did not get great OTA reception on TV or radio. Had 4G with US Cellular. The frost free spigot did not cooperate with our pressure regulator and we kept losing prime so had keep resetting and finally removed regulator. Trash cans at every site. Will definitely return. - JJPP17

Have camped here several times. It's our favorite in NC. Spotless State Park with roomy, shady sites with most on the water. Friendly and attentive employees. Garbage cans with liners are supplied and emptied daily. Electric (50 amp) and water included. Clean dump station in the campground. Perfect campground for all types of water sports. - Ralph Earl

A great stay. Kerr Lake is my favorite State Park and my go to for any short or long vacation. My only complaint is that I wish there could be toilets closer to the far reaching campsites. Some campgrounds within Kerr Lake offer one-toilet male and female restrooms for the campsites further away from the main bathhouses and these are wonderful! Especially when you wake up in the middle of the night and have to go-go-go! - LittleLadyBliss

There's plenty of pros and cons to this place, this is our take on it.
- Waterfront sites available, large and pretty. All either full or partially shade.
- Lots of trash cans and spigots make it easy to keep things clean.
- Lots of bathhouses with showers. Bathhouse near us was kind of gross. The showers were flooding til I pulled a huge hair clot out. The bathhouse right by the camp host is pretty darn nice. There's soap, it's clean.
- no weird bug problems. No icky bug issues Iike excess gnats, skeeters, ants, spiders.
- nice little beach area and other lakefront picnic area- pretty and clean, nice for families.
-Dogs. You are allowed to bring your dogs.
-No maps posted anywhere unless you go and get one from the ranger station.
- Almost no cell reception here. Some areas where you might get a bar or 2.
- We had a terrible time with other people coming onto and thru our campsite. Because we had a waterfront site, we had people tromping thru at all hours, docking their boats by our tent, dragging their chairs into our campsite. It was really rude. If privacy is important to you this might not be the best place.
- Bathhouse near us was gross. No door locks or soap, but the toilet paper was locked onto the stall.
- Noise level. Saturday night people were screaming at the top of their lungs, dogs barking.. went non stop until past "quiet time."
- Not for hikers- more for boaters, sun worshippers, families, lake splashers.
-Dogs. This place has a constant audio backdrop of barking dogs.
- Rangers: I was napping since partiers kept me up. I heard a noise like a bear crashing thru the woods and looked out. A park ranger was charging down into our campsite-made a beeline for our picnic table and started going through our things without asking... That's illegal. Finally he looks up... We are both staring, and has a sheepish expression and says" uh sorry, I thought you had vodka bottles. I think we were the only people here not drinking! - Metaphormidable

This park was a bit crowded when I visited in November. Unlike another campground a few miles away which was less crowded and more "nature-y" - Nutbush does not have a lot of RV sites near the water. The lots are open and sunny, very little shade. They have Electric and Water hookups. Dump on the way out. Beach is very nice. Lots of space to hangout and enjoy the peace of the lake. Stayed at campsite 088 and it is the closest RV spot to the Lake. Pull-through site. A bit unlevel. Loved the owls and coyotes at night!!! - Londonandrews

I really love Kerr Lake and this site was a great site, we loved it so much. The female bathroom was very clean and nice and I have no complaints at all. The complaint here comes from my husband who said the bathhouse for men left a lot to be desired... For instance... Door/curtains on the showers. - LittleLadyBliss

Nutbush is part of North Carolina’s Kerr Lake State Recreation Area (SRA). Campground is typical of many state parks, especially N.C. – okay, but needs funding for upkeep and improvement. Roads are paved, but sites are gravel. Only a few pull-thru sites in camping areas 1 & 3. Sites tend to be small, most are difficult for campers over 30 feet. Sites Area 3 does have well located electrical & water hookups. Most sites are at least partially shaded and have good fire-rings; but are not leveled very well. Bathrooms were okay, and kept clean. (Area 1 sites may require 100 ft of hose to reach the water.) Weak on enforcing rules, i.e. quiet time, number people per site, alcohol use. Weak on enforcing rules, i.e. quiet time, number people per site, alcohol use. We stayed 4 days in a 30 ft Travel Trailer. - NCRambler

Pretty lakefront sites but hard to find one both level and with working electric. Ended up no level for a one night stop and kept slides in. Dish worked. Two park employees were at work on the malfunctioning electric box early the next morning. - Mtmoi

Celebrated our birthdays, what a nice gift! The park was freshly mowed, clean park/beach, just perfect! Our site was lakefront, beautiful site, a little too much sun in the afternoon, will try for #47 next time. - Michael O

The people responsible are really excellent. They are around all the time and are very courteous. The place is so good that is basically full all the time, specially this loop. - Pedrito

We camped at this place for several months. Just beware it is VERY RUSTIC, has free range chickens, roosters that roam the place. They wake you up at 3:00am... The place needs A LOT of TLC. The owners charge different rates depending on which site you choose AND they charge more for the concrete pads. They tell you one price and then charge you higher prices... couldn't wait to leave that place!!!! If they would just be honest people about what they charge. Just make sure you get the rent agreement in writing. - duck12

This camp is a small area behind the main house which is used as a B&B in a very rural and quiet setting. It is a nestled amongst 150 year old tobacco farm buildings and the entire area is very rustic. You can see that there have been many improvements recently including all new utility posts and water pipes. That said, none of the sites were remotely level. We were able to place lumber under a back tire with help of the owner to marginally level us out. We did not unhook because we felt that trying to use our automatic levelers would have put too much strain on the landing legs. OTA television service was good as well as both Verizon and Sprint coverage. It is approximately a mile and a half off of Interstate 85 at Exit 220 which makes it convenient for an overnight. There are fuel stations with diesel and gasoline available at the off ramp. This could be a wonderful RV park with some basic leveling of the sites. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful. We would stay here again if the price was lowered to a reasonable level and work was done to make it easier to use the sites. We stayed here as there are few options in the area and we were too tired to proceed. - bbmidwife

The March 2010 review is an accurate one. For us the location was ideal for a working trip in nearby Henderson. We enjoyed this park. Don't expect all the amenities and efficiencies of the larger parks. My rating of this park is based primarily on the setting. There are only a few sites, in a quiet country setting, secluded and set nicely in and around an old family tobacco farm. You can explore the log farm buildings. The owner is friendly and helpful. Our site was very nice. The pad was large and level but one bit of caution: the hookups were not placed in the usual left-center side, so you may need a bit of creativity. Our power cord just barely reached and we needed to use the sewer extension hose. There is a bed and breakfast here in case you want to meet friends or family. - Wayward

We stayed here two nights because it was the closest park to Overton where we did some genealogy research. Owner was friendly and helpful. Sites are just gravel along a fence. Has 50 amp, water and sewer. Not really a Campground. Rather it's a place to park your rig if you have a reason to be in the area. Quiet and no one bothered us. - Peter K

Adjacent to Stuf-It Storage close to I-85 exit 209. Owner is very friendly and accommodating. Park is well kept. Pads are well packed gravel and are mostly level. Owner is able to accommodate extra vehicles, trailers, boats, etc. - Mumpsterj

This was our first trip to Henderson Point which is apart of the Kerr Lake SRA. We reserved site #37 with water and electric in Loop 2, which is waterfront. I received good signal strength with my satellite dish ( 97% ) and full cell phone coverage with Verizon. We could sit in my camper and watch the sun go down reflecting off the water, watch the boats cruise by and fish from the bank. We really enjoy this campground with Hibernia being a very close second. We stayed 5 nights and really didn't want to leave. Had a great time here and I highly recommend this campground to anyone! I would give it a 10 if they had full hookups. - NC RV Travler

This is perhaps one of my favorite places so far...another truly spectacular Corps of Engineers campground, one of several on Kerr Lake (or Bugg Island if you're a Virginian.) The lake was close to its highest levels due to torrential rains from both Florence and Michael hurricanes and there were some campsites still under water with some flood damage. The campground is quite large, broken up into 4 loops. B, C & D have electric and water available, as well as tent sites on the beach. D was closed for the season but we walked around and it is also quite nice. Our neighbor said they camp here often and prefer North Bend to all others on the lake with C loop as their personal favorite. Campsites are way too cool with picnic areas terraced down to the lake shore. Heavily shaded but we still enjoyed beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Sites are well spaced and I noticed there are separate parking spaces for additional vehicles at some sites. Even though it was quite chilly we cracked a window just to hear the waves lapping on the shoreline. So quiet and peaceful. Campground was almost empty even though the weather was perfect. There is only one shower/bath house but it was plenty large enough to accommodate a full campground. Facilities were spotless as was our campsite. There is a separate swim beach, boat ramp and playground in C loop. Lake access is available via walking paths every few sites for those folks not on the lake. A paved walking trail to the dam is level and mostly shaded. We stayed only two nights and I was very sad to leave. We will definitely be returning to this tranquil place. - Debbie Collison

Over night stay. A bit off the main highway but the senior discount made it worthwhile. Large lake swimming beach loop B not very good loop C beach seemed better. People fishing, kayaking, and boating on the lake. Loop D currently closed for season. - CindyL

Beautiful large lake with many camping sites right along the shoreline. Nice sand beach with lots of shade trees. Shallow lake with sandy shore great for swimming or other water sports. Saw lots of people boating and fishing. RV site just steps from the beach. Could hear waves lapping on shore at night. There are designated swimming beaches (where dogs are not allowed) but never saw anyone using them. The beaches are so nice adjacent to the campsites there was no reason to go elsewhere. Bathrooms/showers very clean and new. Most sites have additional parking immediately adjacent. Easy check in process at entrance, otherwise did not see any staff on premises. Lakeside RV spots full on a weekend in August. Interior RV spots mostly empty. Tent spots almost completely empty. Would not be able to see the lake from the interior RV spots, but these are still only about 50 feet from the beach. Overall pretty quiet. - DawgDen
