Kerr Lake


Kerr Lake Real Estate

Offering over 50,000 acres of fresh water, Kerr Lake (aka Buggs Island Lake) is truly one of the East Coast’s best kept secrets. Why? Because real estate on Kerr Lake is different from Lake Gaston or Smith Mountain Lake and other fixed-water-level lakes due to it's fluctuating water level.

Homes on Kerr Lake

The government-owned land buffer that surrounds the lake’s water protects the water from the ills of development. The shoreline appears natural and undeveloped. Septic systems are pushed back good distances from the water, increasing the probability of the lake’s water quality remaining good. The fluctuating water levels have created government-owned shorelines. There are hundreds of places on KERR LAKE where one can pull up to an island or sandy beach and spend the afternoon. The fishing is some of the best in the country; the lake is rarely crowded; and the winds are often perfect for sailing. Some fifteen day-use parks offer boat launching ramps, picnicking and swimming areas, and hundreds of campsites.
