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!

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

Another beautiful COE park. Site was huge, firering, table and elec/water. Host was friendly, took me to local store for firewood. - Mike-Sharon

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

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

Great park on the John Kerr Reservoir, sites are wooded, spacious, and well separated, with electric & water hookups, there is a nice double sided dump station. Bathrooms and showers worked well and were cleaned daily. Our site, as many others we noticed were very level, ours required only a single lynx block, (1 in.). There are fishing, boating and swimming opportunities, but we were there to just relax. Our rate was with the Senior Pass, we will definitely come back. - bukhrn

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

A very nice wooded campground with most sites on Kerr Lake. Very friendly staff. The campground is fairly remote. - VikingVagabonds

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

We stayed at Lake Gaston for 4 nights in a 50 Amp FHU site. The site was tight to get into, and thankfully my husband was skilled enough to get into the tight space. Some of the roads are alright, others are in dire need of repair.
We enjoyed the pool, but were disappointed that the grill area was not open due to construction. We delighted in all the gnomes scattered about the property. Wish the roads were better and there were FHU sites closer to the lake. - TxDorsey1975

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

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

Reserved for 3 nights from April 7-10. Arrived after the office closed at 4 PM. There was no reservation information posted at the office, no map, no instructions. Called all 3 listed phone numbers on the office window, Park ranger, Assistant park Ranger and Park manager (Glad there was no emergency!). No answer at any of the numbers. Found a vacant site (which had no water as the water was shut off underground) and went back Sat. morning to check in. I was told that they do not put any reservation packets out for late arrivals nor do they have a map (or a place for maps) except for one taped inside the window. I asked about a camp host as I had driven around looking for one when I arrived the night before. I was told they don't have a camp host yet but they will have at some point. When I asked about reservation packets or instructions for late arrivals being posted outside, I was told by the young lady at the desk that late arrivals are supposed to find a site and come back in the morning. When I asked how they were supposed to know that when no instructions were posted, I was given a blank stare. So I went off and did what I went there for during the day and called at about 330 PM to ask about getting wood and ice after the office closed at 4 PM. I was told that there was no ice or firewood available after 4 PM, only during office hours. The bath house in Campground C was very dirty. There was something all over the mirrors that looked like it had been there for some time. The shower floors were very dirty all 3 nights I was there. The sites are extremely short and my 23 ft class c barely fit. This was NOT a user friendly camp. I have stayed at many Virginia State parks and love them! This park was not the best that VSP has to offer. I did have the opportunity to go to Staunton River State Park while looking for the Staunton River Battlefield State Park, and the woman at the office there was extremely helpful, what I would expect from Virginia State Park. - twright342

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
