We dropped the trailer this evening and we will have dinner out there tomorrow evening (gotta work rest of week). Have a good evening.
I grew up near Kerr Lake, the Va side and Virginians call it Buggs Island Lake. We camp there as often as possible, there are loads of the best Army Corp of Engineer parks. (We prefer ACE, Federal and State parks). Clean, good space, and most lots are either Lake front or view on a great huge lake that has very little development. Very different from Lake Gaston that is very residentially developed with a few private/commercial campgrounds.
We typically camp at North Bend Park and bring the boat, though there are several ACE camps to choose from on both Va and NC sides. We especially love some of the lake front dry camping areas, though they have hundreds with water and elec, as they tend to be the best views and a bit fewer campers.
You can book online at recreation.gov and even find pics of the sites at Campsite Photos.
Hope you can get there soon. Enjoy!
