Campsite Review: Rudds Creek Campground, insider info:

All the sites in Rudds Creek Campground are pretty good. They are all in the trees with good shade. Summer temperatures are hot. In late July, we ran at least one of our air conditioners all day and well into the night.

Sites 55-99 along the water in the south loop are the very best sites. Sites in the inside of the south loop are average. Sites 72 – 77 have the best access to the water. Sites in the south loop are closer together than some of the sites in the other loops.

Sites 30- 46 are close to the water with good access to the shoreline. These were occupied so we couldn’t walk them to determine the best ones.

Some sites have shared driveways with the neighboring site. All sites and driveways fit RVs and cars nicely. Most of the sites have additional parking for additional vehicles and boat trailers.

All parking areas are on gravel with pine straw next to the site, all sites had a picnic table.


John H. Kerr Reservoir is the reason to be here. For the most part, the campground is quiet and so is the reservoir except on weekends.
