It is really the understatement of a century when we say we LOOOOOOVE camping at Kerr Lake. We love, love, love going there. For us, this lake has it all. Every site so far has been clean, neighbors friendly, and never short of amazing views. Since our family is all about that #lakelife, we always try to go somewhere with direct access to water or somewhere nearby. We stumbled on Kerr Lake on accident for our first trip and still can’t get enough. The photos below are from Henderson Point Campground. You will quickly see why we just keep going back!
Kerr Lake, also known as Kerr Reservoir, is ginormous. We are talking 50,000 acres of water BIG. This lake runs along the Virginia and North Carolina border. Another super fun fact is that Kerr Lake has almost 850 miles of shoreline! This provides just about each and every camper who stays on Kerr Lake the opportunity to be lake side. We can’t speak for everyone, but there’s got to be a reason this campground is booked every weekend during peak summer! I am assuming the lure of being lakeside for $30 per night is the reason!!
Kerr Lake State Recreation Area has 7 campgrounds with over 600 total camping sites.
These are the 7 campgrounds:
- Henderson Point
- Nutbrush Bridge
- Kimball Point
- J.C. Cooper Campground
- County Line
Campsites offered at each campground:
- Primitive sites (no water or electric)- walk up, walk in, or hike in
- 30 AMP electricity hookup with water
- 50 AMP electricity hookup with water
We love Kerr Lake and have stayed at 4 out of the 7 campgrounds so far. Because this lake is so large, each time you visit a different campground, you get a different experience which we absolutely love.

Henderson Point Campsite Amenities
Henderson Point Campground does a great job of keeping all sites super clean and camper friendly. For a state park and around $30 per night, I am still amazed by how much these campsites have to offer.
- Poles to hang your lanterns, bug catchers, or hammock.
- Large, spacious site pads filled with pea gravel.
- Picnic benches at each site. Some will have the traditional wood. Others will have the Trex faux wood material that holds up well to anything.
- Ring fire pit with the flat grill top option. Go ahead, cook your burgers over that open flame!
- Dedicated garbage cans for each site at the end of the site for easy waste disposal. The campground has site services that come to pick up trash daily.
- Large, clean bath houses. Some with changing area and shower area in each stall.
