BOYDTON, V.A. – North Bend Park at John H. Kerr Dam and Reservoir (Buggs Island), 64 N. Bend Drive, is now scheduled to OPEN for the 2023 summer recreation season.
North Bend Park has been closed since November 1, 2022, to repair and upgrade infrastructure throughout the park. However, the planned improvements have been temporarily postponed. Due to the delay, we plan to open the park for a portion of the recreation season.
North Bend Park will be open May 15, 2023, through September 15, 2023, for camping. All campsites, including the group camping areas, will be available for reservation starting April 5, 2023, at 10:00AM. The North Bend main boat ramp and Area A ramp will be open March 22, 2023, through September 15, 2023.
During this period, the North Bend Day Use area will remain closed due to the delays in the repairs. This includes the day-use swim beach, Osage picnic area/fishing pier, and disc golf course. Nearby areas, such as Palmer Point Park, Liberty Hill, and Rudds Creek Day Use will be open and provide similar opportunities.
We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work through the project and apologize for any inconvenience. Please follow us on Facebook for updates: @JohnHKerrReservoirBuggsIslandLake.
