Kerr Dam Reservoir, Boydton, Virginia

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers operates this 50,000 acre reservoir and an additional 50,000 acres of surrounding land. In the 1950's, Kerr Reservoir, also called Buggs Island Lake, was constructed primarily to provide for flood control and hydropower generation. The 900 miles of wooded shoreline stretch across three counties in Virginia and three in North Carolina. Five campgrounds are operated by the Corps of Engineers, seven by the North Carolina State Parks and two by the Virginia State Parks.

There is a small grave yard from the Land family near the campground, with a confederate soldier. The Land family’s daughter was 9 years old when she passed and the chapel for named after her.

This is our campsite in area B at the North Bend Campground.
