JC Cooper is a solid CG

Kerr Lake has many nice CGs and JC Cooper is a good choice for stays. It is easy to get to and has spacious sites and quite a few are waterfront. Some have private beaches. We have stayed at a number of sites and all have been nice, none very level though.

Last minute reservation - gorgeous

I had a short but lovely stay at this campground. My site was right on the lake - it was easy to get to and clean. (I booked a site without electric or water.) Restrooms and facilities were tidy and the staff at the front desk were incredibly polite. Would 100 percent go back.

Awesome

This place is great and unlike anywhere I’ve been in VA/NC in terms of the lake. The water is crystal clear with sandy beaches. It’s beautiful. Campsites are massive with potable water at each, and almost all have a fantastic view of the lake and/or are on the lake. One downside is there is no…

Great overnight stay

Quick overnight stay; pad was large & easy to back into with our Cricket trailer- sites are nicely spaced apart (privacy). Airplanes fly overhead pretty regularly; seemed to stop in the late evening & start up early. Be prepared to pack you trash out of the park. Overall a nice spot!

Quiet and Convenient

Coopers is a clean well maintained park between Clayton and Garner. Just minutes from downtown Raleigh. All of their sites have both 30 and 50 amp service. They all also have both water and sewer. They offer both weekend and extended rental.

Nice park, scheduled for overhaul

We had site 17. Maintenance was’t very good there were bits of trash and sticks everywhere. The water comes on and then goes down to a trickle. There was a water junction box with water leaking down into the site so the bottom stays wet and muddy. The swimming beach has sharp roots sticking up out…

Relaxing, beautiful, fun

Was more than expected! Being right on the lake was awesome. Walk out of your tent and “bam,” see the beautiful sights! We camped for the weekend as a mom/daughter getaway (me, my toddler, and my mom). Daughter had a blast swimming in the lake and catching her very first fish!!! Our site was in a…

Loved this campground.

We stayed at J.C Cooper Campground at Satterwhite Point Area 2.

The site was near the water with very nice lake views right from the tent.

Great for swimming, kayaking, SUP, and other water activities.

The nearest grocery store (Food Lion) was about 15 minutes drive from our…

Nice spot on NC/VA Border

I've only camped here twice, both times on Memorial Day weekend. Our campground was in the JC Cooper campground area. I think that this isn't fair to this campground because each time its just been too dang busy. I assume that on a non holiday weekend it wouldn't be nearly as bad as when I've been.…

Great place

This is a very good place to camp. Beach on lake as well as a pool. Very quiet with many full time residents. Most spots reserved for the summer.

Great campground; need to update map.

This was a great campground.  We were tent camping, so the humidity was a bit rough the first week of June.  The camp sites were very well maintained and the bathrooms were clean, although lacking some hot water for showers.  The camp site map can be a bit confusing as the colors don't always…

Quiet RV sites, far from lake

Sites were spacious. Ours was entirely shaded, but others seemed to have some sun. Site came with table, light/garbage pole, fire pit. Bathhouse was a walk, but the weather was fine and inside was clean. Showers were timed, but could be started multiple times. Low privacy with only a shower curtain…

Awesome campground with nice lake access

We loved being able to walk to the beach. We camped at a spot right above the water, so we got to wake up to the sound of waves hitting the shoreline. Just awesome. The spots weren’t as flat as they could be, we have a rooftop tent so we have to try and get the car as level as possible.

Family friendly

Loved that there was a playground near the site. The site itself was gravelly and not super private but it was great- the hikes around were stunning.
