Kerr-Lake is a state recreation area that is located on the North Carolina and Virginia border, just six miles north of Henderson, North Carolina. It is easily accessible from both I-95 and I-85. Kerr Lake is the largest lake in the state of Virginia, and has 850 miles of thick, forested shoreline surrounding 50,000 acres of water. This beautiful man-made lake is a haven for water sports enthusiasts who can enjoy swimming, water-skiing, sailing, fishing, boating, wakeboarding and tubing. County Line, Henderson Point and Kimball Point are particularly well suited for sailing. Two commercial marinas are open year round and offer full services and supplies, and more than 300 picnic tables and 11 shelters, with access to the lakeshore and boat ramps, are available for picnicking. Hiking is another very enjoyable sport at Kerr Lake, with Bullocksville, Satterwhite Point and Hibernia all having nature paths that offer a closer look at the aquatic environment. Kerr Lake is a great place for family camping. The lake area offers hundreds of tent and trailer campsites, many of them along the water's edge. Most campsites have a picnic table, fire pit or grill and a tent pad. Playgrounds, public showers, restrooms, telephones and dump stations are located nearby.

Kerr Lake Weather & Climate

The North Central region of the state has a moderate climate; four seasons without the extremes seen in other parts of the country. Latitude accounts for some climatic variations, as do soils, plant cover and inland bodies of water. The central region, in winter, is protected by the western mountain ranges, so temps are usually 10-20 degrees warmer than in the mountains. In summer, when the air is dry enough to keep cloudiness at a minimum for several days, temperatures may reach 100 in the interior at elevations below 1,500 feet. Usually, however, clouds limit the sun's heating capacity and an entire summer sometimes passes without a high of even 90 degrees. North Carolina is outside the usual tornado path in the United States, but tropical hurricanes do come close enough to influence the weather about twice in an average year.
