John H. Kerr Reservoir is a massive 50,000 acre lake located near Boydton, Virginia and extends 39 miles up the Roanoke River along 900 miles of wooded shoreline that stretches across three counties in Virginia and three in North Carolina. Throughout the Kerr Lake area, you can find opportunities to boat, fish, camp, swim, picnic, hike, and hunt.

Intensive wildlife management techniques are also employed in twenty-six developed areas, consisting of over 10,000 acres of land. These areas provide opportunities for hunting, hiking, and wildlife watching.
