If you’re interested in lake homes for sale in North Carolina, keep Kerr Lake in mind. Kerr Lake stretches from North Carolina into Virginia and is fed by the Roanoke and Dan Rivers. As one of the largest lakes in the Southeast, Kerr Lake is a recreation wonderland that invites you to explore its wilds.
Kerr Lake is truly grand in scale; 800 miles of meandering shoreline encapsulate 48,900 acres of water surface. So much open space and unspoiled shore mean one thing to eager anglers: fantastic fishing! Not only can you pick virtually any spot on the lake to cast your rod, but you can rest assured the fish are nice and relaxed when the hunt begins. You’re likely to catch a whopping largemouth bass on any given day, and don’t be surprise to snatch a crappie, too. You’ll also come across white perch and catfish. Though, the real keeper in the lot may just be the striped bass—Kerr Lake is one of the few in the entire nation that hosts naturally-producing populations of striped bass.
There’s certainly more to do and enjoy on the waters of Kerr Lake than fishing. Several marinas, docking facilities, and public access points make heading out on the lake a simple and convenient excursion. In fact, the adjoining Kerr Lake Recreation Area features several boat ramps that are open 24 hours a day for your convenience. Lake homes for sale are situated near two commercial marinas, Steele Creek and Satterwhite Point, that you’re welcome to use to launch your water toy of choice. Pick up some speed on a jet ski or power boat and explore the many unique cliff faces and formations that line the water’s edge, or slow it down a bit on a bobbing raft or canoe. Lakefront properties are treated to views of one of Kerr Lake’s most popular pastimes: sailing. The conditions always seem to be just right to keep your sails full and your adrenaline pumping!
A seemingly countless number of campsites, both equipped and natural, also surround the lake. Similarly, you’re invited to take advantage of such recreation amenities as picnic areas and RV hook-ups, as well as accommodations like wheelchair-accessible fishing piers and camping areas. And while you’re outside, you might like to show off your swing at any local golf course. Thorndale and Warrenton are only a short drive away, and Kerr Lake Country Club is simply not to be missed.
