Anglers will find channel catfish, large and smallmouth bass, bluegill, threadfin shad, spotted bass, striped bass, and hybrid striped bass. The Warrior Creek trail system completely encircles the campground as it scenically follows the fold of the surrounding landscape. It is recognized by the International Mountain Biking Association as one of the top bike trails in the world. There are 17 miles of single track trail in Warrior Creek with multiple points-of-entry throughout the campground. These trails are also used extensively by hikers and trail runners.

There are also two group camping areas that are perfect for large groups. Amenities include flush and vault toilets, showers, drinking water and a dump station. An amphitheater, swim beach, playground, basketball court and hiking and biking trails offer additional recreation opportunities. A boat ramp and three fishing piers, one of which is ADA accessible, can be found at Keowee Park which borders the campground.

Natural Features

The gentle Yadkin River flows through its scenic namesake valley in the foothills of the eastern Blue Ridge Mountains.

NC Gem!

Warrior Creek Campground is located on the Kerr Scott Reservoir. It's beautiful and peaceful, at least Monday through Friday. Weekends tend to get filled up fast and often with large groups stretching the limits of a campsite. It's close to home for us and we love camping there, especially in the fall. It is surrounded by hiking/mountain biking trails. Bath houses are nice and clean.

Great campground, excellent trails

We stayed for 4 nights, our site was incredible, the others not so much.  The loop we were on had a vault toilet with t/p and hand sanitizer, there was a shower/toilet house a few hundred yards up the road, which we usually drove to for hot showers, very clean there.    The campers before us were slobs with kids, there were little bits of plastic packaging all over the site along with their hanging neon night light which they were too lazy to put in the trash, apparently they didn't go through scouting.   Sites here can be a bit close with no trees to screen your neighbor.   If you're an rv'er would you please respect quite hours and not blast your tv until 11pm.  They don't enforce quiet hours.

Pros and Cons

Went with our two dogs for two nights. Spaces are pretty close together and open, so you’ll see your neighbor.

Unfortunately, we had terrible neighbors our second night and made a quick exit the following morning as a result.

Otherwise, the bathhouse was clean, and the trails around the campground were very nice. The stand alone outhouses were very gross; spider webs, flies everywhere, and dark.

I don’t think I will return, but think it would be good for families and people who want ease over quiet.

Quiet and private

We stay here every year for a four day music festival up the road at Wilkes Community College. You are about 10 minutes from resteraunts and shopping, or you can enjoy fishing and boating and never leave the woods.

Great for family

We stayed 3 nights, and it was a great campground for our family. Clean restrooms, a small beach, playground, and quiet. We don't mountain bike but several of our friends do and they said they trails were great. Sites are a little close and open to each other but overall would visit again.

First to Review
The mt bike trails are even better than you would imagine!!

Super mt bike trails that have been built and maintained by volunteers who really care and ride the trails often. Solid facilities to camp. 10 to 15 minutes drive by car to the wilkesboro with plants of food and amenities. Other biking nearby on greenway, black mountain and the trails at cub creek!!
