A little tight pulling in with fences on both sides of the motorhome. Check in was very comfortable, nice concrete level pads. We only stayed over night but would stay again. - TheBounders

Price reflects ROD membership. Campground was easy to find. (We followed directions on C2C website.) They have a "fun center" on site with bowling, exercise room and other activities. It is odd that the hot tub is in a different building than the indoor pool. There is a restaurant at the campground, but it is only open on a very limited basis. When checking into the campground, they direct campers through a very narrow drive with a fence on both sides. It was very challenging to maneuver through this area. While we were there, another camper ran into the fence causing damage to their camper and the fence. The fenced area is a very poor design; they need to find a different solution to put campers while waiting for registration. Because of the trees and the very narrow roads through the campground, the sites are hard to get into. Sites are close together, but there are enough trees that it makes it have a little separation. Campsites have a concrete pad to park the RV. The concrete pad helps the sites to be level. Each site had a wooden patio with a picnic table. There is also a charcoal grill at each site. Well maintained roads through the campground. Laundry Room is so small that the doors of the dryers don't fully open-they are stopped by the washers.
We had to use our booster to get Verizon coverage. Not a prayer of getting DirecTV satellite in these trees. - GLPColorado

Stayed overnight on a Coast to Coast reservation. Check in was quick and escort to site was provided. Back-in site was level, but dirt/clay which stuck to everybody's feet, including the dog. Interior roads could use some work, but sufficient for overnighting. We will probably stop here again. - Alworth

There's a lot to love about this campground. Lots of waterview spots even factoring in the permanent sites. The place is impeccably clean and the staff was universally friendly and helpful. The manager clearly loves her campground and her campers and wants to make sure she does everything she and her staff can to make each person's stay memorable. The "Trading Post" is a store that has most of the essentials (both RV and convenience store items) as well as a grill where you can get breakfast, lunch, etc. The grill part wasn't open on the Thursday when I arrived, but it was open the rest of my weekend. Prices at the Trading Post are extremely reasonable and you don't feel like you're being price-gouged for convenience. The only two not completely positive items stopping me from a "10" out of "10" were the unpaved roads through the campground and the lack of working WiFi for most of my visit. But those two things pale next to all the other amenities at the place like the pool, multiple beaches, availability (not through the campground but through third party people) to rent pontoon boats, kayaks, etc. The other very impressive thing were the sheer number of staff people here taking care of everything very quickly and efficiently. I had an electrical problem (which turned out to be of my own making) and someone was here literally in five minutes. Anyway, this is my new fave and they'll be seeing a lot of me. :) - RVAJeff

The roads in this park are gravel, therefore very dusty. When checking in, the office personnel were not very helpful so we had to just wind around to find out where to go. It is on a beautiful lake that is very peaceful during the week. There are many seasonal campers that come on weekends that keep it busy. We had a great site until a group of people checked in that consisted of several families with many kids and dogs. One dog was put in a kennel outside that must have not been used to being outside and it growled and barked all night. We decided it was too noisy for us so left early. Had it not been for that, we probably would have enjoyed our stay. - dldw1954

-Check in process- Ok. The main entrance is just off the road and it's a building with a radio to call down to the Trading Post to get inside. Next, you follow a map and some non specific signs down to the actual check in building.
-After hours check in- No
-RV spots- Spots are packed in and the roads are tight. It is hit or miss on levelness, but overall it was fairly good. The water HU is not with the electric, so an extra hose will be needed to reach.
-Hookups- Very few FHU sites, for the most part, you only have electric and water. There is a Honey Wagon Service with both free and pay days so make sure you plan ahead.
-Wi-Fi- It was not available during our visit.
-Bathhouse/Laundry- Descent facilities. They were clean and a good size. Laundry room had a good amount of machines that all worked.
-Amenities- Lots to do on site including a huge lake for boating and swimming; there is a pool, mini golf, horseshoes, volleyball, hiking trails, and shuffle board as well. There is a member's lodge with a tv, games, and library with lots of books for all ages.
-Kids- Definitely a family campground. There were families and kids everywhere.
-Pets- Pets are welcome; no dog park.
-Local area- Park is not close to tourist area or even larger populated areas. Raleigh and Durham are both more than 50 miles away. The site is situated in between Rt85 and Rt95, if you don't mind driving, those roads will take you to more locations.
-Staff- Staff we encountered were all very nice.
-Overall rating and comments- Park definitely had a party atmosphere. If you are looking for somewhere to relax and have a quiet peaceful time, this is not the campground for you. However, if you are looking for constant activity, lots to do, dance parties, and making sure your kids (and you for that matter) are tuckered out at night, this is the place for you. Overall, this was a great place. You could easily stay here for a few weeks and not get bored. - D20Nomads

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!

This "campground" is a dirt (spots of grass) parking lot behind a motel. It appears to be very old and poorly maintained. Hookups very rusty, but usable. We did not see any sewer hookup. There was a dump...not in good shape. Restroom was available with a key...very old and basic, but seemed clean. The lot looks like it would be a mess in wet weather, but it was dry when we were there, and it is very convenient for a pull through night, just off the highway. We will not likely use it again. - joyces
Dec 2009 - $29.00
Sites were level. We were able to use our satellite. Site long enough for 40ft+towing. Sewer connections nicely placed (not in back and not raised). Wi-fi strong and fast and free. Local pizza delivery available (not RV park pizza). Interior roads very wide. Roads paved with no ruts; more than enough for big rigs. Staff was friendly. Very nice and clean. There were no permanent residents. Propane was available. We will stay here every time we are near. - petersoldan

This campground is a reasonably priced, easy off, easy on, Interstate stop over. I would not recommend this as a destination RV Park. Cable TV is an extra $4/night, but the TV service is was excellent as was the free WiFi. The voltage was low (105-V) in the morning when all the overnighters were using power. I had to turn my refrigerator and water heater on gas. Security in an unknown quantity as this campground is not in the best of neighborhoods. However, there are lots of bright lights. I would stay here again. - dlr

We have stopped here many times because of its proximity to I-95 mid-way along the East Coast. It is very clean with friendly management and a great pool & hot tub plus a dog park. The sites are all pull-throughs and fairly close without much privacy but are well maintained with full hookups and excellent free WiFi and cable TV. They have $30 Overnite Express sites for those wanting a safe overnight stop off I-95. - Appleknocker
Jul 2016 - $34.00
We stayed 3 nights. We had a large level gravel site. Spacious, clean, Wi-Fi strong in some areas. We visited to check out Roanoke Rapids area. The staff was excellent and very professional. Large Dog run, pool, hot tub, 9 hole mini-golf for a great price. Satellite reception was excellent. We were in site P19. - Nomad61
Jul 2016 - $35.00
Stayed two nights. Clean, spacious sites. Easy in/out. Level. Some sites paved/concrete. Others with gravel with concrete pad. Only problem - water does not drain well at some sites. It rained ( can't prevent that ) both days. Had to step out into 1-1 1/2 of water because pad is lower than the ground. Will stay again; but not at site P6. - billydw

Very clean and nice park. If you want to get away from it all it is great ... No cell phone and big sky. Was a bit mislead thinking my site had water. Water is available throughout the park, so fill tank before set up or coming into park. Great park! - welkertp

Very nice park nestled in the mountains. Nice level sites. We stayed one night as we traveled from Florida to Massachusetts. Very clean and secure. - yankeeflyer1

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

Located on North Carolina’s Kerr Lake State Recreation Area (SRA). Kimball Point Campground was nearly empty in mid-May. Good news, many of the leaning-tree hazards to larger campers have been cut! There is one area that still has a few tight turns for the really big rigs. A few sites have great views of the lake; but most have only a glimpse. No park attendant this early in the season. Roads are paved, sites are sand or gravel. There are a few sites that slope badly. About half of the sites are in full sun. Bathroom in first area needs a serious renovation, however it was kept clean. (Second camping area is still closed). Verizon cell phone service was excellent. TV reception over the air at our site was acceptable. Rate shown is with senior discount. We stayed here for 5 days in a fifth wheel; would stay again. (Be sure to check out Buchanan’s Store dating from 1878! 220 Seafood Restaurant in Henderson is a good stop, also.) - NCRambler

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
