Family Camping: Kerr Lake offers hundreds of wooded tent and trailer campsites, many of them on the water's edge. Both electric hookup and non-electric sites are offered. Many of the electric sites have hookups for water directly on the site, but some require up to 100 feet of hose to reach the water hookup. The majority of the campsites have a picnic table, fire pit/ring or grill, and tent pad. Playgrounds, public telephones, hot showers, restrooms and dump stations are nearby.

This 50,000-acre, man-made lake is a haven for water sports enthusiasts and landlubbers alike. More than 800 miles of wooded shoreline provide access to a variety of fun-filled activities on the lake. Relax and enjoy water sports at any of the seven recreation areas along this expansive reservoir.
