Dan and Staunton River Confluence

We are in a geographically unique area, at the confluence of two major rivers which join to form Kerr Lake, and then further down Lake Gaston.  We also have a small independent lake, Lake Gordon, situated in the center of our county.  Finally, we have the Meherrin River, a recently designated Virginia State Scenic River.

Explore our exciting range of lakes and rivers below:
