Hibernia Campground (part of the Kerr Lake SRA) is located at the end of Hibernia Road, off Route 39 in Townsville, NC. Approximately 110 campsites, with certain loops offering Water and Electric. Clean bathhouses on each loop, a boat ramp, nature trail, worship service, most sites feature Kerr Lake access, but some are rip/rapped to protect from wash-out, so select accordingly. Having been on site 95 in 2007, we selected site 104 with level gravel drive and pad and pretty direct access to the beach/lake. Being one cove over from the boat launch made for a non-murky lake bottom and the lake was refreshing, but rather low due to lack of rain (Fay's remnants were hitting the day I left so lake should rise). At intersection of Route 39 and Hibernia road is RJ's Country Store, with camping/fishing goods, fishing license, deli, gas, propane tank trade in. About 15 miles south on 39 is city of Henderson, featuring fast food, Walmart, etc. Best restaurant is Middleburg Steak House in Middleburg,NC(Route 158). An easy 17 mile drive to Clarksville, VA for antiquing/eateries (and less expensive gasoline), and Kerr Dam can be accessed by backroads - Route 39 s - Nutbush Road, Satterwhite Point Road,Jackson Royster over to 'bicycle route 4' to the Dam. Boydton features several convenience stores and Pino's Pizza.

First time camping here in our Pop Up Camper. When making reservations mid-July, the lake was very high, but had gone down by our arrival. Lake seemed to shrink about a foot each day (heard rumor lake was being pumped to supply Newport News). We had no problem accessing campsite, backing in, (site was level side to side), hook up for water/electric (30amp) was easily accessible. We had a lovely patch of green grass between pad and rocks before beach, with a great view of the lake. Weather was terribly hot most of our two week stay, with some night showers and one fierce thunderstorm which had us holding our awning poles until the wind ended and the rain came! Our AC was a blessing, as the lake was about 86 degrees. Two dump stations handled campers quite well (although I'm not sure many were aware of dump station #2). An informal church service was held each Sunday 10 am at the amphitheatre. There was a great easy walking trail (Plantation Trail) which took you through the woods to the si of the Hibernia Plantation and the family cemetary. The plantation had been torn down to make way for Kerr Lake back in the 50's/60's, but some of the original plantings were still there. Rangers were all very helpful, kind, considerate. As we were doing a family reunion, I needed to extend my stay past the 14 day limit, so had to put site in my visiting cousins' name and rangers were accommodating. Facilities were clean and well maintained.
