Good and bad here. 6 out of 10 based on the overall experience. We stayed 4th of July weekend. The check-in was at the guard shack which is 1/4 mile or so from the campsites. A worker guided us with a golf cart to our spot. I was a bit surprised and concerned though when he turned onto a gravel and muddy road that eventually lead to a tight road through the trees to our spot. Our spot was 5 degrees off of level left to right according to the auto-leveler. I shuffled back and forth for probably 15 minutes and blocked up as much as I could, but could only get it to 2 degrees which is too much to use the leveling jacks without risk of binding. So, I just landed the jacks without leveling and we just sucked it up and dealt with an unlevel coach for the weekend. Most spots look this way and I saw many campers on a slant. There is zero Verizon cell signal. Zero. Not even enough to make a call. There is no Wi-Fi, even at the office. It has been turned off for whatever reason. Now I understand we are "camping" but these days being connected has become a way of life and not being able to even make a phone call or text is a safety concern, at least for me. There are a lot of permanent residents - some friendly, some not. Okay, all that said, there are many things to like. The view of Lake Gaston is awesome. You can fish right from the bank or swim if you want. The pool is large and up to date. They had a DJ every night in the pavilion building. We rented a pontoon boat from the nearby Holly Grove Marina for $150 for the day which was an awesome experience and allowed us to spend a day on the lake. Most campers seem to be there to disconnect in a state park/wilderness type environment and for that this place is perfect. If you like to remain connected to the outside world while camping, or if you are picky about having a level spot, this might not be the best place for you. Worth a try but beware of those two things. - aj3u

Very tight maneuvering for a 40' MH and toad. Our site only had 30 amp electric and water. No big deal since we were just overnight. Nice area with amenities. Would probably stay again. - kanem

Great Campground. We stayed here overnight on our way north. The rate reflects a winter special. The campground staff is wonderful, very helpful. Our site was a pull through, with a concrete pad and a beautiful view of the lake. In the spring and summer this place has many things to do - swimming pool, fishing, boating, mini - golf. Wi-Fi is excellent. Camp store is well stocked and has a good selection of items. Complimentary coffee in camp store in the mornings. We will definitely be staying here again; hopefully, for a long stay to enjoy all the facilities. - RVWeGo!

A little tight pulling in with fences on both sides of the motorhome. Check in was very comfortable, nice concrete level pads. We only stayed over night but would stay again. - TheBounders

Price reflects ROD membership. Campground was easy to find. (We followed directions on C2C website.) They have a "fun center" on site with bowling, exercise room and other activities. It is odd that the hot tub is in a different building than the indoor pool. There is a restaurant at the campground, but it is only open on a very limited basis. When checking into the campground, they direct campers through a very narrow drive with a fence on both sides. It was very challenging to maneuver through this area. While we were there, another camper ran into the fence causing damage to their camper and the fence. The fenced area is a very poor design; they need to find a different solution to put campers while waiting for registration. Because of the trees and the very narrow roads through the campground, the sites are hard to get into. Sites are close together, but there are enough trees that it makes it have a little separation. Campsites have a concrete pad to park the RV. The concrete pad helps the sites to be level. Each site had a wooden patio with a picnic table. There is also a charcoal grill at each site. Well maintained roads through the campground. Laundry Room is so small that the doors of the dryers don't fully open-they are stopped by the washers.
We had to use our booster to get Verizon coverage. Not a prayer of getting DirecTV satellite in these trees. - GLPColorado

Stayed overnight on a Coast to Coast reservation. Check in was quick and escort to site was provided. Back-in site was level, but dirt/clay which stuck to everybody's feet, including the dog. Interior roads could use some work, but sufficient for overnighting. We will probably stop here again. - Alworth

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

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

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

A wooded large campground along the shore of Lake Gaston, beautiful setting, good facilities but need work the on sites. We were in a narrow very unlevel pull thru the site was short and had the front of my motorhome off the ground 6 inches, the door was so high in the air that a step stool still made it hard to reach the steps. Not a spot to overnight but a perfect spot to relax and enjoy a nice lake. - Bruce and Janette

Muddy mess, moderate/excessive uneven spaces, very close to neighbors. friendly staff. Grill not open, so I can't review. - Cindy Lou Van Auken

We stayed at Lake Gaston for 4 nights in a 50 Amp FHU site. The site was tight to get into, and thankfully my husband was skilled enough to get into the tight space. Some of the roads are alright, others are in dire need of repair.
We enjoyed the pool, but were disappointed that the grill area was not open due to construction. We delighted in all the gnomes scattered about the property. Wish the roads were better and there were FHU sites closer to the lake. - TxDorsey1975

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

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
