Kerr Lake - Grassy Creek Trip
Put In - Take Hwy 15 S from Clarksville, VA, approximately 5 miles and entrance will be on the right. Follow signs. From Raleigh, Longwood Park is a nice drive up Highway 50 to Creedmoor and then take 15 north through Oxford. The park is on your left after entering Virginia. The Grassy Creek put in is back a few miles south on 15 till you see a sign pointing to Grassy Creek. It is about 10 miles from the campsite.
Distance/Time - 2 trips, trip 1 evening trip to watch the sunset, 5.1 miles, 2nd trip - 8.1 miles at the Grassy Creek boat ramp.
Difficulty - Average.
Trip Directions - Decided to go back and camp the night at Longwood Park and then drive over to Grassy Creek to paddle that area. This area has four major creeks which can be paddled for quite a distance. I had to turn back on Johnson Creek. I made it to the end of Beech Creek. Instead of 3 paddles on this overnighter, I just visited Clarksville on the trip up and then had an early dinner so that I could paddle a little longer in the evening. Sunset was at 7:30pm, fall is getting here for sure. Actually the some of the trees in the area have started to turn. Will be back to the Grassy Creek area again to finish the other two creeks. Very nice place to paddle, much to see in wildlife and very quiet.
Hazards - Wind.
