  • Bandits Roost CG, NC (COE)


    Bandits Roost CG is located on the east shore of W. Kerr Scott Reservoir, about 5 miles SW of Wilkesboro, NC. There are 107 sites, of which 80 are RV sites. Fishing, boating, and hiking opportunities are also offered.


    Here we are on site #31, with a great view of the lake. Setting up the satellite dish here was a snap. But we were in a Verizon Extended Network area, and although voice was fine, no data capability was available.

    Date of visit: Apr 2006

    This shows sites 24-29, located on an open little peninsula. In the distance is W.Kerr Scott Dam.

    All sites offer W/E (30A) hookups.

    Although the COE now uses ReserveAmerica, they do keep more sites available for first-come/first-served - 40%. So it's considerably easier to get a site than at most state parks.

    There are two CG loops. The previous pictures show sites from Area A. Area B is more wooded and doesn't offer the open waterfront sites of Area A.

    The park has a nice open amphitheater where rangers present various programs.

    Near the amphitheater is a playground with quite a few interesting things for the kids to enjoy.

    In the foreground is the small swimming area for use by campers. Across the water is the larger beach for day-use visitors.

    For boaters, there is a boat ramp located in the campground.

    A beautiful sunrise on a chilly morning (35 degrees) as the mist slowly lifts off the lake. This is the view from the door of our rig.

    This was a tough place to leave - we extended our original 3-night stay to 6 nights.
