Debbie & I just returned from a camping trip at the Army Corps of Engineers “Bandits Roost Campground” at W. Kerr Scott Dam and Reservoir close to Wilkesboro NC. We stayed on one of our favorite sites there, #28. This campground is a great place for kayaking, power boating, fishing, with many other activities in the area, too.
Here’s a few photos:

Never camped in a U.S. Corps of Engineers location. Looks great! I especially like how it is pet friendly and kayak friendly. Interesting how it also has electricity at many sites. Here in New England many of the state parks are not pet friendly and most sites have no facilities.

We camp at Army Corps of Engineers campgrounds around the nation every opportunity we have.There were many folks out walking their dogs during our stay! We had water & electricity at our site. Campers receive a discount when 62 or older with discount cards.

We’ve stayed in many Corps campgrounds, and have had great experiences. Don’t remember ever having power available, but some beautiful campsites, and of course, water views.
Have you seen/purchsed the book, “Camping with the Corps”?
And gee, Ridenfly, those photos are just awesome! Look like they were professionally staged. Love the campsite, views, and of course, your Ollie.

I don’t think I would like a site within 1/4 mile of her…. She should be using electric saws! However I am a big Stihl fan, so maybe I would give her a little slack.
Are there no rules about commercial activity and disturbing the peace?

At the time she was one of seven Women in the world making these for a living with power saws. The little bear is guarding our front porch! We bought the black bear on the left for $50 from her at an antique tractor show.
We were camping at a ACE campground in western Illinois when the family camping next to us invited us to the antique tractor show. Their family was showing 5 tractors there.
