14 RV Parks near Clarksville, Virginia
Aug 2012 - $11.00
We stayed here two week which proved to be too long. No Cell (AT&T). Sat. was tricky.. Ranger friendly, Host just so-so. Clarksville was a friendly town with several nice grocery stores. Library served as a Wi-Fi hotspot. Would go back but, for a shorter stay. There are two other COE parks near by on the lake. - oldcutup

A COE campground, just off US-15, a few miles south of Clarksville, Va. This is a nice, campground with good paved roads and clean restrooms. Most all sites are at least partially shaded and have tables, fire-rings and lamp posts. Campground has a combination of tent and RV sites, with very few RV sites on the water. Bathhouse is okay. Under-brush is definitely overgrown, blocking most of the breeze and any view of the lake. Ranger was friendly, hosts not so much. We camped for 5 nights, and likely will not stay here again. - NCRambler

I was a little disappointed in this park. I usually stay at North Bend which is located near Boydton but decided to try another COE park on Kerr Lake for a few days. This is a much smaller park with numerous sites located right on the water. A good portion of the water sites have no hook ups but there are a few available. Sites on the water generally have easy direct access and this offers a place to tie up a boat. Kerr Lake is a very popular fishing destination so be prepared for the roar of boats throughout the day. My campsite (57) was located in a nice cove area which limited the boating activity. This would be a great location for kayaking as well and for that reason alone I might try the campground again. The sites are large with plenty of room for second vehicle, RV/tent combo, etc. They are gravel and most are fairly level although I did see some that had a severe slope. It would be helpful if this was noted on the reservation website. Some sites have little privacy between them. I would often have people walking through my site to either access the lake or visit with a neighboring camper. Bad camping manners aren't the fault of the park but it gives an idea of the camper clientele that stay at this park. There are no multiuse paths to walk on and there was only one bathroom available which was some distance from my camping area. There was a bathroom facility much closer but it was closed with no indication why or when it would be opened. I didn't use the facility while here due to the distance. There was a vault toilet located in the area but I opted for the bathroom in my RV. The vault toilet was clean the one time I went in, and it was serviced while I was here. Just a personal preference for me. I missed the multiuse paths. I like to take long walks for exercise but do not like to walk on the roads for safety reasons. The campground wasn't crowded so road traffic wasn't too bad but I think it would be during the season. Overall, this park is okay for a few days and I would try for another section if I return. - obxblond

This is a beautiful park. The sites are big and many of them are right on the water. You can fish right from the edge of your site! The rangers and employees were fantastic, as were the camp hosts. If you have a boat, they have several places where you can put it in the water. There's also a lot to explore in the area. My only complaint was the road noise. The park faces the water just a little ways down from two bridges that go over the lake into Clarksville. In the morning, it was hard not to hear the cars, and in particular emergency vehicles (police/ambulance) that were racing across it. It somewhat ruined the mood. - SteveMM

A typical VA state park -- gorgeous. Larger trailers 25' may have issues fitting into some sites. Be sure to pay attention to the site sizes. Loop C has several sites overlooking the water. Bring your boat and you can dock feet from your trailer door! Our site was level. Electric and water pressure both great. Camp host was visible and active. Bath house was small (only 2 toilets and 2 showers) but well kept. Waterfront spots had few trees (but a great view). Lots of biking and hiking opportunities. We WILL be back. - ricks99

Reserved for 3 nights from April 7-10. Arrived after the office closed at 4 PM. There was no reservation information posted at the office, no map, no instructions. Called all 3 listed phone numbers on the office window, Park ranger, Assistant park Ranger and Park manager (Glad there was no emergency!). No answer at any of the numbers. Found a vacant site (which had no water as the water was shut off underground) and went back Sat. morning to check in. I was told that they do not put any reservation packets out for late arrivals nor do they have a map (or a place for maps) except for one taped inside the window. I asked about a camp host as I had driven around looking for one when I arrived the night before. I was told they don't have a camp host yet but they will have at some point. When I asked about reservation packets or instructions for late arrivals being posted outside, I was told by the young lady at the desk that late arrivals are supposed to find a site and come back in the morning. When I asked how they were supposed to know that when no instructions were posted, I was given a blank stare. So I went off and did what I went there for during the day and called at about 330 PM to ask about getting wood and ice after the office closed at 4 PM. I was told that there was no ice or firewood available after 4 PM, only during office hours. The bath house in Campground C was very dirty. There was something all over the mirrors that looked like it had been there for some time. The shower floors were very dirty all 3 nights I was there. The sites are extremely short and my 23 ft class c barely fit. This was NOT a user friendly camp. I have stayed at many Virginia State parks and love them! This park was not the best that VSP has to offer. I did have the opportunity to go to Staunton River State Park while looking for the Staunton River Battlefield State Park, and the woman at the office there was extremely helpful, what I would expect from Virginia State Park. - twright342

This is one of the nicest campgrounds we have ever visited. Each campsite is placed along the lakeside. We camped in site 80 on Loop 3. The campsites are some of the largest we have seen and are well spaced. All have some shade and most are very shaded. This loop has short trails that lead from each site to the lake so that you can tie your boat close to your site. Swim, kayak, and enjoy the lake directly from the site. If you need to stay at another loop, ask about this availability when you call to make reservations. There extra areas for parking around the loop so that if you have a boat trailer or extra cars, there is space available. We certainly plan to return to Rudd Creek Campground! - TN Vogels

We stayed in this park 4 nights while visiting family. The park is very large with many loops. We stayed at the very end of the park. Our site was on the water. There had been flooding before we arrived and the lake was up 5 feet which put the water edge close to the campsite. It did not impact our campsite. The sites on this loop were private and spacious. Previous campers had left the site dirty with trash. Had to pick up debris and remove garbage from fire ring. Shower house for this loop was at the top of the loop which you had to drive to. Toilet facilities only were in the bathhouse closest to our site. - Mamag76

This facility is easily accessed via Highway 58 a major 4 lane road that runs east/west through Virginia. There are one or two gas stations within 10 miles of the entrance. This is a gem of a park. Campground hosts are very helpful. The roads in the park are all paved, no overhanging trees, nor trees on the side of the road to snag your rig. There are a few sharp corners but I had no problem negotiating them with my 36 MH with toad in tow. Our site #75 was a back in, easy to get into, hard packed dirt with gravel on top and was fairly level. Electric (50 amp) and water were conveniently located about mid coach. There was a fire pit and picnic table. We had a fantastic view every night of the sun setting on the reservoir which was just across from our site. The rest rooms were cleaned daily. The showers were modern, plenty of hot water, and cleaned daily. The park itself is well maintained with no overgrown weeds, brush, etc. In the summer given the number of trees around us I'm sure it would be well shaded. The main draw here is either boating or fishing on the reservoir. We would come here again with no hesitation. - William T

We stayed on site 13, a pull-through at the back of the campground. The campground was pretty hilly, but we had no trouble navigating it with our 26' trailer, nor in setting up on site. We found the campground to be very clean, quite attractive, and just overall very pleasant. The campground was mostly full on Saturday night, but it was fairly peaceful. For the next two nights after that, we had the campground to ourselves. There is one bath house, and it had two showers per side. They were adequate and clean. There is a dump station beside the bath house. The huge pool was a joy for our 11-year-old son. It was clean, and had a kiddie pool, picnic tables, lots of chairs, a concession stand, etc. Very nice pool for a state park. There is a lot of open space around the visitor's center, and this park is certified by the International Dark-Sky Association. This park is out away from any major towns (30 minute drive into South Boston), and apparently folks come from time to time to gaze at the stars and planets. - Ken H.

Easy check in. We were here in mid April and there were only 2 other campers here. Sites are close together but made no difference. Sites are level and gravel. Lots of tent sites. Rigs > 37 feet would have trouble with the interior roads. Great hiking trails. Small gift shop. Park rangers very friendly and helpful. - rudyhehn

Really enjoyed my stay at this campground. Hiking is fantastic. Clean, well marked trails. I did over 9 miles in two days, and didn't near see it all. Run offs for low muddy spots the best I've seen. I used this trip to check out the Equestrian campground. Looks well set up. A little worried about no water on the trails for horses (bring a collapsible bucket). The camp hosts were the best. They were very friendly and knowledgeable. Even seen them in action when a camper cut themselves, and another with a boating accident. Gift shop was staffed with very helpful seasonal staff. Love the slanted back-ins, easy to get your rig into. Will go back. - RebeccaR

A very nice wooded campground with most sites on Kerr Lake. Very friendly staff. The campground is fairly remote. - VikingVagabonds

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

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

Park has 4 campgrounds, 2 of which were not open yet for the season. Very sparsely attended while we were there arriving on a Sunday departing on Friday. I'm sure it will pick up considerably on the weekends, and into camping season. The lake is beautiful and you can see it through the trees (not yet leafed out) from our site even though we weren't on the water. Roads were well maintained and we will certainly stay here again when visiting family. There are gravel parking areas near each site for visitor or overflow parking. - Mamag76

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

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

First camping trip of 2019 and we decided to check out Kerr Lake. Beautiful lakeside sites - we were in #45. Neighbors are quite close but everyone was friendly and considerate.
Kerr Lake is definitely a boaters delight. Lots of fishing boats roaring by. Nice one in a while but did not appreciate the thundering of multiple boats in a Sunday morning - steady from 6:30 - 7 am! Not my idea of a peaceful Sunday morning.
Being late March the weather was a bit of everything - warm & sunny, cloudy & rain ending with a freeze warning. Campground was about 1/3 full in the RV sites. No one tent camping.
Probably wouldn’t visit again - too many other places to check out. And I now know to find a spot on a lake that is a “no wake zone”. - BoilermakerRDU

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

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
