Description: Set in the foothills so it is hilly and wooded. Paved roadways with gravel parking pads. Fire ring, concrete picnic table, water and 50A at each site. The lake is popular with motorboats on the weekends. Small swim area but nice natural setting. We stayed on site B90 which is a first come site. There are about 100 sites and 86% are reservable. Sites could use some work such as adding more gravel to level up and new timber edging. Two dump stations within the park.
Activities: Close enough to a nice size town for shopping. Natural setting so we enjoyed sitting outside and listening to the birds. Very nice Education Center near the Kerr Scott Dam. Nice place to take a drive to the Blue Ridge Parkway and Blowing Rock. Mountain View Overlook down the road has a beautiful view of the headwaters and lake in the distance.
Trash and Recycle: Dumpsters near the dump stations. Recycling bin near one of the dumpsters.
