12 Parks near Clarksville, Virginia
Aug 2012 - $11.00
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

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 only stayed over night, but I wish we could have stayed longer. We had a back in site under many trees. All of the sites were tree covered. There were nice fire pits, fish cleaning tables, lantern hooks and picnic tables. There was a bit of space between sites, so we weren't looking directly into the camper next to us.
The bathrooms were clean and well kept.
I did not go down to the water it, but I believe there is a boat ramp. - car2ner

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

This was our first time staying at this State Park campground at Kerr Lake. It was fantastic. My only complaint is we specifically booked a spot right beside bathrooms (just the toilets) in Loop 1 because our camper doesn't have a toilet, only for us to find them locked! I'm sure it was due to it being off season, but it would have been nice to know, then we could have booked a site closer to the larger bathhouse. Overall, the sites were nice and level for the most part. You can see that water from basically all of them. We really enjoyed ourselves. - LittleLadyBliss

This is our fourth time camping at Kerr Lake; that last two times at Satterwhite Point, both times in November when the park is so quiet. We love this park. The entry into the camping spots can be a little narrow but manageable with our 43 foot motorcoach. Our loop lost power during out last visit and the park personnel were very quick to address it. We also had a water heating issue so we used the showers on site. They were certainly dated but clean and provided hot water and a warm room. The only negative is a visit to the local WalMart where a person parked near us removed one of our towing pins for no reason other than being a jerk. We had to drive 75 miles out of our way to replace the pin. No reflection on the park but left a bad taste in our mouth. - aurunner98

My wife and I stayed just one night to give this spot a try. We were very pleased with the campground. Our site was on the lake and we had shade from the trees. It was clean and neat, but kinda tight to back in. We needed a longer hose because the spigot was more than 50 ft away. The lake is great for swimming, fishing, and boating, but bring water shoes as the beach has rocks on it. We will be coming back to stay here longer next time. - Tree Man
