Campground Description

Occoneechee State Park is on Virginias largest lake, Buggs Island Lake, also known as John H. Kerr Reservoir. The park features 18.1 miles of trails that allow the guest to experience the history of the Occoneechee Indians and plantation life in the 1800s. The Commonwealth of Virginia began leasing the land for outdoor recreational use from the U.S. Army in 1944. Occoneechee State Parks land remains leased from the Army Corps of Engineers.

    Very Large, clean, shaded sites with Kerr Lake visible in the distance. Some sites are on the lake.

    Enjoyed hiking, biking and kayaking. Looking forward to returning for fall foliage, I'm sure it's beautiful!
