A great COE campground with really friendly staff and rangers. Located south of Wilkesboro on highway NC-268, which makes it easy to find. Convenient to Wilkesboro shopping, etc. Campground roads are paved, sites are gravel. This campground has two separate RV areas and 2 separate tent camping areas. A few RV sites are not very level and some have picnic tables at an elevation below the camp pad. Many good waterfront sites and many inner-loop sites have a view of the lake. Bathrooms in section “A” badly need a modernization. TV reception was okay with antenna and Verizon cell phone worked great. We camped here for 7 days and will stay here again. Rate shown is with senior pass.

A COE campground, on John Kerr Lake. We stayed in section “D”, which has many spacious RV sites. Some trees have been removed since the 2011 season, but some of the turns are still tight for large campers – watch the trees! The campground roads are paved, but sites are gravel. All sites are at least partially shaded and have tables, fire-rings and lamp posts. Bathhouse has seen repairs, painting and addition of solar water heating panels. Very little noise from highways, however there is boat noise, especially on weekends. To improve views of the lake and allow more breeze, sites need to have the underbrush cleared along the shore. TV reception was okay with antenna and Verizon cell phone worked great. We camped here for 5 days and will stay here again. Rate shown is with senior pass.

A great COE campground with really friendly staff and rangers. Located south of Wilkesboro on highway NC-268, it is easy to find. Campground roads are paved, sites are graveled. There is a separate tent camping area. A few sites are not very level and some have picnic tables at an elevation below the camp pad. Campground is located away from most all road noise; but convenient to Wilkesboro. Many good waterfront sites and many inner-loop sites have a view of the lake. Bathrooms were okay, and kept clean – but could stand modernization. We will stay here again. Rate shown is with senior pass.

A COE campground, six miles south of US-58 on John Kerr Lake. Park Ranger was friendly; but definitely need a few new hosts. A very nice campground where roads are paved, but sites are graveled. We stayed in section “D”, which has many good RV sites. All sites are at least partially shaded and have tables, fire-rings and lamp posts. Bathhouse works but needs a renovation. This campground is located so it has virtually no noise from roadways. Many overhead limbs on roadway in section “D” are low and drag your RV: need to be trimmed. Also, some of the turns in section “D” are very tight for larger campers. Campground needs to have underbrush cleared to improve views of the lake and allow more breezes! We camped here for 5 days and will stay here again.

This is a COE campgrounds on Scott Kerr Lake at Wilkesboro, with two RV camping areas. Hosts and park ranger were very friendly and helpful. Many of the campers we met here were regulars, that book each spring and fall. The campground roads are paved, but sites are graveled. Due to run-off in heavy rains, a number of sites get quite muddy. Some sites have the picnic tables and fire-rings are 6-8 feet lower than camper pad, not good. As mentioned, bathrooms were okay, and kept clean: but need modernization. In section “A” there are numerous waterfront sites and inner-loop sites with a view of the lake. There are also two nice tent camping areas. For $5 there is wireless internet available at entry gate, this covers the length of your stay. We camped here for 7 days and will stay here again.

This is a quiet and peaceful park, about 12 miles west of Collinsville, VA off VA-57. Park has a nice beach area. Cabins and cabin area are in a separate setting with large trees, cleared of underbrush. The RV and tent campgrounds are different. Those campsites are small, many too small for motorhomes or large campers. Campground is overgrown with trees and underbrush. It is above the lake, but with no views and no breeze! It is so overgrown, that smoke from campfires is a respiratory issue. Otherwise: the bath-house is nice, and the roads and sites are paved. All sites have electric, water, picnic tables and fire rings. A few of the sites are pull-through, but are too tight for larger RVs. We stayed here for 4 days. Due to the small sites and the smoke issue, I would look elsewhere next time. This is unfortunate, because the park is nice.
