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

I'm working my way through all the Kerr Lake state parks, and so far this is at the top of my list. Many of these are similar, but this one in particular has many (not just a couple) sites that are literally right on the water, some of them even with "beaches" or at least areas where you or a dog can walk right into the water. It's clean, they've added nice wood decking to a couple sites and according to the Host are going to be doing a lot more upgrades in the coming year. A couple of downsides that aren't the park's fault: Hard to get any TV stations via antenna here since it's so far from a major metro, but DirecTV works fine if you pick the right site with line of site. Also, I have both a Verizon and an AT&T phone. Despite the fact that the AT&T coverage map shows strong coverage all around here, I had almost zero signal strength. Verizon, on the other hand, was strong LTE the whole time...just an FYI for planning purposes. The host greeted me almost immediately when I checked in and pointed me to some free firewood, and told me about the gates being locked and unlocked at certain times, and the rangers were friendly. I'm not going to tell you which sites are best because....I want them all for myself :) - RVAJeff

Celebrated our birthdays, what a nice gift! The park was freshly mowed, clean park/beach, just perfect! Our site was lakefront, beautiful site, a little too much sun in the afternoon, will try for #47 next time. - Michael O

The people responsible are really excellent. They are around all the time and are very courteous. The place is so good that is basically full all the time, specially this loop. - Pedrito

This was our first stay at J.C.Cooper/Satterwhite. Our rate included a $6 senior discount. We had a waterfront site with electric, no sewer. The water hookup was a good 100+ feet from our unit, so therefore unusable. The site was softer dirt and rocks with a packed gravel area for the picnic table and fire ring. The 50 amp service was good. The roads are paved but turns are pretty tight. It was a hard maneuver to get into our site. Bigger rigs might have serious times getting through. There are not enough restroom/shower facilities for the number of campsites or the distance to them. Our site had a good view, especially for the rate, and we would stay again. - R&S

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

BULLOCKSVILLE – one of several parks on N.C. Kerr Lake State Recreation Area (SRA). Roads are paved, but sites are gravel. (Many sites require 50-100 ft of hose to reach the water!) All sites are at least partially shaded and have good picnic tables, fire-rings. Bathrooms were okay, and kept clean. Good beach area for kids. Boat ramp with dock adjacent to the camping area. Many good water front sites and many inner-loop sites have a view of the lake. We would camp here again. - NCRambler

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

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

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

This state park has a very friendly, helpful staff. They repaired our electric service shortly after we reported the problem. This campground is designed in the past, when small travel trailers were common. Winding roads are very narrow and paved but extremely rough with lots of trees and many low hanging branches. Campsites are stone and dirt and not especially level. Some sites are water front with a lovely view of Lake Kerr (pronounced Car), and all have an OK picnic table and fire pit. Some water hookups are a very long way from your unit (50+'). Restrooms are a long way from some sites. No WiFi is available, but we did get a few OTA TV stations. We noticed barking dogs tied outside and left alone and poop not cleaned up. It was very quiet during the week, and super crowded on the weekend. We would recommend weekdays. - R&S

This park was a bit crowded when I visited in November. Unlike another campground a few miles away which was less crowded and more "nature-y" - Nutbush does not have a lot of RV sites near the water. The lots are open and sunny, very little shade. They have Electric and Water hookups. Dump on the way out. Beach is very nice. Lots of space to hangout and enjoy the peace of the lake. Stayed at campsite 088 and it is the closest RV spot to the Lake. Pull-through site. A bit unlevel. Loved the owls and coyotes at night!!! - Londonandrews

I really love Kerr Lake and this site was a great site, we loved it so much. The female bathroom was very clean and nice and I have no complaints at all. The complaint here comes from my husband who said the bathhouse for men left a lot to be desired... For instance... Door/curtains on the showers. - LittleLadyBliss

Nutbush is part of North Carolina’s Kerr Lake State Recreation Area (SRA). Campground is typical of many state parks, especially N.C. – okay, but needs funding for upkeep and improvement. Roads are paved, but sites are gravel. Only a few pull-thru sites in camping areas 1 & 3. Sites tend to be small, most are difficult for campers over 30 feet. Sites Area 3 does have well located electrical & water hookups. Most sites are at least partially shaded and have good fire-rings; but are not leveled very well. Bathrooms were okay, and kept clean. (Area 1 sites may require 100 ft of hose to reach the water.) Weak on enforcing rules, i.e. quiet time, number people per site, alcohol use.

This camp is a small area behind the main house which is used as a B&B in a very rural and quiet setting. It is a nestled amongst 150 year old tobacco farm buildings and the entire area is very rustic. You can see that there have been many improvements recently including all new utility posts and water pipes. That said, none of the sites were remotely level. We were able to place lumber under a back tire with help of the owner to marginally level us out. We did not unhook because we felt that trying to use our automatic levelers would have put too much strain on the landing legs. OTA television service was good as well as both Verizon and Sprint coverage. It is approximately a mile and a half off of Interstate 85 at Exit 220 which makes it convenient for an overnight. There are fuel stations with diesel and gasoline available at the off ramp. This could be a wonderful RV park with some basic leveling of the sites. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful. We would stay here again if the price was lowered to a reasonable level and work was done to make it easier to use the sites. We stayed here as there are few options in the area and we were too tired to proceed. - bbmidwife

The March 2010 review is an accurate one. For us the location was ideal for a working trip in nearby Henderson. We enjoyed this park. Don't expect all the amenities and efficiencies of the larger parks. My rating of this park is based primarily on the setting. There are only a few sites, in a quiet country setting, secluded and set nicely in and around an old family tobacco farm. You can explore the log farm buildings. The owner is friendly and helpful. Our site was very nice. The pad was large and level but one bit of caution: the hookups were not placed in the usual left-center side, so you may need a bit of creativity. Our power cord just barely reached and we needed to use the sewer extension hose. There is a bed and breakfast here in case you want to meet friends or family. - Wayward

Camped here for work for several weeks. Very small campground with only 4-5 sites, but the sites are very large. Campground is located on an old 150-acre tobacco farm, and all of the electrical hookups are mounted onto different barns and outbuildings. There is an "outhouse" with bathroom, shower, washer, and dryer. It's very quiet. The owner is very nice, and will go out of her way to help you. This has become my regular campground when in the area! - Dana J

We stayed here two nights because it was the closest park to Overton where we did some genealogy research. Owner was friendly and helpful. Sites are just gravel along a fence. Has 50 amp, water and sewer. Not really a Campground. Rather it's a place to park your rig if you have a reason to be in the area. Quiet and no one bothered us. - Peter K

Adjacent to Stuf-It Storage close to I-85 exit 209. Owner is very friendly and accommodating. Park is well kept. Pads are well packed gravel and are mostly level. Owner is able to accommodate extra vehicles, trailers, boats, etc. - Mumpsterj

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

This was as nice an ACOE park as we have been to. Huge sites, a lovely lake, and miles and miles of bike trails. OK ... so our cell-phones barely worked, and we were never able to get a satellite signal, even after we changed sites, but you can't have everything. Using a booster, we were able to get just enough of a cell-signal to use the internet and stream (sometimes). There were a few OTA channels, but not many. This is a great park, and a great value. Off the main path, for sure, but very very nice. We would stay here again, for sure! - MerBee

Beautiful park on large lake with marina & beach. Large walking/biking path throughout park. Site level with large step down table/grill area. Restrooms/showers combined with individual locked door. Very nice park. Would rate higher if had sewer hook up. - rvgirl54

Our favorite regular campground, we stay several times a year. Corps of Engineers run, gated and lots of rangers. Very clean and well kept with lots of easy dump station access. Lots of E&W hookups but weekends get booked up early. We prefer some of the "dry" or tent areas as they have some of the best open lake views, you are right on the water and they can have more availability on weekends or last minute. Lots of shade, very clean restrooms and showers, some newer than others depending on section. Miles of paved trails and bike paths. Huge boating lake with lots of access. Lots of fellow campers will also have boats, and you can typically anchor or pull up on the beaches or shoreline right by your site or nearby. Lots of fisherman on the weekend, but this beautiful lake is huge. Very safe. Kids will have a blast. This CG is in a rural area on a very huge lake with 800 miles of shoreline. Sites are big and beautiful spread out over 4 large sprawling and wooded sections, but all are gravel, most all are pretty level, all have picnic tables and fire rings. This is not a big commercial CG with commercial amenities nor is it close to much population. This is all about the lake and lake life. If you're looking for pools and clubhouses this isn't it, this is more rustic, private, natural, and all about the lake. Weekends can fill up, though it's still a roomy place, but weekdays can be very quiet with far fewer campers. There are a few other COE CGs on the lake, all nice and very similar, but NorthBend is our favorite. We call it the best kept secret in the MidAtlantic. - Ablindmule
