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

Countyline is a great place to camp, boat and enjoy some piece and quiet. We have been coming here off and on since I was a kid, a long time ago, the bath house has plenty of hot water and is clean. The downs are you will need a long hose for water and there is no sewer hook up. Many of the sites are tight to get in with a camper. The sites are water front but they have built retaining walls which while they give you flat areas for tents but they have graveled them so tents are a little tuff. The rates are low unless you choose a site they list as a double site that you pay double fee but the site really isn't big enough for 2 big campers. - Superiorsvshvac

We stayed for 4 nights and had a great time. Not much for kids to do at this park but is very quiet and has beautiful views of the lake. - JohnB GVA

This is a hidden gem in southern Virginia. Grounds are immaculate, the sites are well separated. We will definitely be back! - teamfour

This is a large COE campground, on John Kerr Lake. Campground roads are paved, with gravel on the sites, but some are a bit muddy. Sites are mostly overgrown and need clearing to allow more breezes and a view of the lake! C & D section have some turns where you have to watch-out for the leaning trees – the bruises show. All sites are at least partially shaded and have tables, fire-rings and lamp posts. Bathhouse is very good and was kept clean. There is a lot of boat noise that starts early on weekends. TV reception was mediocre with antenna and Verizon cell phone worked great. This year for whatever reason, the chiggers (red bugs) were simply terrible. Everyone I talked with was bitten many times. We camped here for 6 days, in a 5th wheel and will stay here again. Rate shown is with senior pass. - NCRambler

One of the best COE parks we've camped in. Sites are well laid out and are spacious. This campground would be a great value even at full price. - Bama Camper

Nice lakeside park. The sites are large, well laid out and maintained, and lots of greenery giving some privacy from neighbors. Only issue would be the local health dept testing showed high coliform(?) bacteria level in park drinking water. No issue for us, we used water previously loaded into our fresh tank. - rvrrat520

Lovely COE campground, lots of level sites with big patios. Rate reflects 50% senior NPS pass. Big rig friendly but sites on smaller tear drop loops hard to navigate with a big rig, suggest higher numbered sites at the back. Most campers are boaters and/or fishermen, boat ramp in campground and fish cleaning tables at sites. Fairly remote. - Pktva

It's a nice park with well-maintained, but tight roads. Most of the sites are ample in size and relatively level. The bathhouses are generally clean, but not exactly sparkling. I guess we are spoiled by Disney and their pest control regimen, but I found this park to be quite buggy. The other major problem was that there was virtually no cell phone or data service available. This might not be a problem if you're trying to get away from it all. but might be if you want to extend your stay by mixing in a bit of work. All of the staff were very helpful and the camp host was very friendly, as well. Overall, we really enjoyed the stay and will be back. - SLSettles

Very nice park with a great staff. It was early in the season, so many of the sites were closed. There are not very many sites that will handle big rigs, so get there early to get the best sites. The Orange sites are waterfront on the lake and several have excellent views. There is not much in the surrounding area, but this is a great park if you are a boater. There are two boat ramps and a concession that rents pontoon boats. While we did not use a cottage, they appear to be very nice. - shenandoahvalley2

We stayed here during the July 4 holiday week ( 3 nights ) in the B-Loop since we wanted a bigger spot. The B-Loop is for up to 35ft rigs compared to the C-Loop. The C-Loop is good for tent camping and small pop-ups up to 30ft, but it's tight. The B-Loop is the green spots, but some of the sites can be tight getting a big rig into since the space is tight for an RV, tow vehicle and boats lining the drive into the loop. The waterfront sites (orange) are in the C-Loop and are only about 10 of them. There's two grocery stores in downtown Clarksville, VA ( 5 mins from the park ). They have a Food Lion and a Dollar General Market that carries most grocery items. There's two big things I did not like about the state park. The first one is the dump station is a long way from both B and C loop. It's on the main park road near near the Visitor Center. The second one is there's no pool and they have no area to swim. They don't allow swimming from the banks inside the park since it's so steep and rocky. - NC RV Travler

We stayed here over the Thanksgiving Holiday; the rest of our family stayed in the cabins. The park is beautiful and of course very quiet during this time. The campground was well maintained but I will state that it's not really set up for a big rig. We are in a 43 ft motorcoach so it would have been very difficult to maneuver if the camp had been crowded but we were able to get a spot that was relatively level and had clearance. Turns are tight but if you can make it work, it's worth the effort. My family loved the cabins, the views are wonderful, deer everywhere and so quiet. I don't think I'd try this during the summer months but we all agreed that we'd do Thanksgiving there again for sure. - aurunner98

This is a very nice state park. The park attractions are about a half mile from the campground resulting in a quiet campground in an otherwise busy park. The only complaint we had was the difficulty getting our 5er into our pull through space. The sites are laid out with landscape timbers, and about 20 feet from the road the space had a 45° turn in an entrance that was about 10 feet wide. Getting in without puncturing a tire on the timbers was quite a task. Getting out posed the same problem as there was another timber sided turn to get out of the space. - Thorfinn

This was our first time staying at Staunton River State Park so we decided to use the Memorial Day holiday weekend to try out the park. We got there at 3:30PM and was able to check-in to site #22. The park was completely full from locals which is a good sign that the locals like this park. The campground is laid out in a figure 8 loop with the bath house in the middle near the campground host. They offer firewood for $3 a bundle near the bath house and ice for $2 a bag at the visitor center. This campground is ideal for pop-ups but can be a bit tight for larger rigs unless you get one of the 3 pull-through sites. I have a 30ft travel trailer and it took me 4 times to get it get around the trees along site backing in at a 90 angle. If you take your time, then you'll have no problem getting your rig in the site. This park has an AWESOME Olympic size pool with water slides and a separate kiddy pool with lifeguards. Staying at the campground gets you free passes to the pool. Otherwise, it's cost money for the public to use. The park had scheduled events like S'mores, Campfire Cooking, Wagon Ride, Canoeing, Bee wax candle making, Geocaching and making homemade ice cream with the park staff. My kids love this park and asked "When are we coming back"! - NC RV Travler

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!

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

Stayed in site 105D which actually is a double. Not sure if we paid extra or not? Rate includes reservation fee and any out of state fee. NICE location on a cove with a beach just a hundred yards away. Arrived on Sunday and hardly anyone in the Park. Needed a long hose extension to reach the faucet. Good Verizon cell and data! Launched kayak right from our site. - Kokomo

We stayed here two week which proved to be too long. No Cell (AT&T). Sat. was tricky.. Ranger friendly, Host just so-so. Clarksville was a friendly town with several nice grocery stores. Library served as a Wi-Fi hotspot. Would go back but, for a shorter stay. There are two other COE parks near by on the lake. - oldcutup

A COE campground, just off US-15, a few miles south of Clarksville, Va. This is a nice, campground with good paved roads and clean restrooms. Most all sites are at least partially shaded and have tables, fire-rings and lamp posts. Campground has a combination of tent and RV sites, with very few RV sites on the water. Bathhouse is okay. Under-brush is definitely overgrown, blocking most of the breeze and any view of the lake. Ranger was friendly, hosts not so much. We camped for 5 nights, and likely will not stay here again. - NCRambler

I was a little disappointed in this park. I usually stay at North Bend which is located near Boydton but decided to try another COE park on Kerr Lake for a few days. This is a much smaller park with numerous sites located right on the water. A good portion of the water sites have no hook ups but there are a few available. Sites on the water generally have easy direct access and this offers a place to tie up a boat. Kerr Lake is a very popular fishing destination so be prepared for the roar of boats throughout the day. My campsite (57) was located in a nice cove area which limited the boating activity. This would be a great location for kayaking as well and for that reason alone I might try the campground again. The sites are large with plenty of room for second vehicle, RV/tent combo, etc. They are gravel and most are fairly level although I did see some that had a severe slope. It would be helpful if this was noted on the reservation website. Some sites have little privacy between them. I would often have people walking through my site to either access the lake or visit with a neighboring camper. Bad camping manners aren't the fault of the park but it gives an idea of the camper clientele that stay at this park. There are no multiuse paths to walk on and there was only one bathroom available which was some distance from my camping area. There was a bathroom facility much closer but it was closed with no indication why or when it would be opened. I didn't use the facility while here due to the distance. There was a vault toilet located in the area but I opted for the bathroom in my RV. The vault toilet was clean the one time I went in, and it was serviced while I was here. Just a personal preference for me. I missed the multiuse paths. I like to take long walks for exercise but do not like to walk on the roads for safety reasons. The campground wasn't crowded so road traffic wasn't too bad but I think it would be during the season. Overall, this park is okay for a few days and I would try for another section if I return. - obxblond

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

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
