About Kerr Lake State Recreation

Kerr Lake camping offers hundreds of wooded tent and trailer campsites, many of them on the water's edge. Both electric hookups and non-electrical sites are offered. Many of the electrical sites have hookups for water directly on the site, but some require up to 100 feet of hose to reach the water hookup.

The majority of the campsites have a picnic table, fire pit/ring or grill, and tent pad. Playgrounds, public telephones, hot showers, restrooms, and dump stations are nearby.

Beautiful views

We stayed at site 21 on the satterwater loop. It was a little steep for a roof top tent but we made do backing the truck in! The water was shockingly warm for October and the kids got their feet in! Highly recommend this area for families. A large field for the kids to run around play catch and a small play ground. My only complaint is late into the evening walking to the bathroom the one way road was fairly busy with a lot of big trucks and campers

Great location, fun for the kids.

Sand and water great camping spots loads of fun.

Gorgeous Views

We were able to secure a spot right on the lake with a private sandy walk in. The area was gorgeous and the camping area was shaded. It IS on sand, so be prepared to clean out your tent afterwards. The spots are a little closer together than we like, but the private “beach” was amazing!

Campground with Roomy Sites by the Lake

Our campsite was roomy and by the lake although we did not have running water or electricity. However, we knew that in advance and were prepared for it. Since we were by a sandy beach, we could put our kayaks in right there at the campsite. The bath house was quite a walk from our campsite, but it did have hot water and showers. We chose to drive to the bath house, especially during the night. I would give it five stars, but without water and electricity, and the fact that the bath house was so far away, I had to give it only four stars.

Tons of waterfront sites

What a great last minute find for us. We stayed in the Nutbush section in our 37ft TT, water and electric, no sewer but dump station on site. Beautiful lakefront spot, went kayaking and swimming from our site, no need to walk to the "beach" or marina. This is a HUGE lake, and water activities rule the day, so don't expect pools, arcades, or extensive hiking/biking trails.

Wal-Mart and all kinds of shopping/food about 15 mins away. Inexpensive as well, $20 weekeday, mid $20s weekend. Online booking.
