Overview

Overview

Bandits Roost Campground is located on the south side of W. Kerr Scott Reservoir in western North Carolina.

Constructed in the beautiful Yadkin River Valley, the lake offers extensive opportunities for outdoor recreational activities.

Natural Features:

The gentle Yadkin River flows through its scenic namesake valley on the eastern slope of the Blue Ridge Mountain foothills. Forests of mixed hardwoods, including sycamore, poplar, oak and hickory, cover the region.

Wildlife is abundant in the valley. White-tailed deer, black bear, eastern cottontails and more can be found among the hills. Birds in the area include wild turkey, woodpeckers, Carolina chickadees, red-eyed vireo, ovenbirds, mallards and wood ducks.

Recreation:

The 1,475-acre reservoir offers excellent boating, canoeing, kayaking and swimming opportunities. Anglers will find channel catfish, large and smallmouth bass, bluegill, threadfin shad, spotted bass, hybrid striped bass and tiger muskellunge.

Miles of hiking trails surround the lake, including the Overmountain Victory National Historic Trail, which has a trailhead at the campground. An additional 25 miles of mountain biking trails can be found at the Warrior Creek and Dark Mountain areas.

Facilities:

The campground offers 102 campsites, including 17 tents sites and 85 standard sites with water and electric hookups.

The popular group tent area offers a covered shelter with water and electricity, a grill, six tables and seven tent pads.

Amenities include flush and pit toilets, showers, drinking water and a dump station. A boat ramp, playground, basketball court and amphitheater offer additional recreation opportunities.
