Anyone interested in meeting up at Kerr lake after Laborday? Never boated there. Usually hang out at Belews Lake near Greensboro.

I'm game! Kerr is a great lake, nice and big with plenty of places to go. Was just there yesterday. We wanted to just get out and ride and went 20 miles one way and still didn't see the other end of the lake.

@bronze_10 I think that may be a good idea for a group get together! What about September 9th as a potential date and do just that. Put in at nut bush, cruise north for lunch, hang out for a while and head back.

I don't think I can make Aug 26th as we will just be heading back from the ICW for the total solar eclipse.... How busy do you think that lake would be Sept 2nd? That's labor day weekend. This could become a fall leaves cruise if we push out to Sept 23rd...LOL...but I am game for either the 2nd or the 23rd.

Last minute plans, but I think we will give Kerr lake a shot today, maybe launch at Nutbush.

Its large but in so nice.. easy to get outta the way there..
You were not kidding ! It really is big, and we loved it the lake. Plenty of places to go, and we only saw a part of it. Water was nice; clean and fairly deep. Surprised on how quiet it was. Very few boats at Nutbush ramp, and boat traffic was pretty light. Looked like tons of places to anchor near a beach. And the boat ramps, all NC boat ramps should look like these. I always thought Jordan did a nice job with this, but Kerr has a terrific set up. We plan on making more trips there. Its 25 mins for us to get to Jordan, an hour to Kerr.

Well, I suggest you come prepared. ;) We slipped in to a small cove and dropped anchor for lunch, and were nearby a few patriotic fellows proudly displaying duel flags, Trump, and Confederate. King size bed sheet dimensions. Several of these monsters on different boats. It is truly a spacious lake, more than twice the size of Smith Mountain in VA, and maybe 4 times Jordan Lake.
