Mecklenburg County Visitor GuideWe're the official tourism office that covers the Virginia side of Kerr Lake, as well as a portion of upper Lake Gaston. Start here to plan your vacation; you will find a great amount of information that will open your eyes to the beautiful region that we lovingly call Virginia's Lake Country. 

Much more than lakes, we are proud to offer great dining, lodging, camping, shopping, and year-round events. While we have a little Civil War history, we have even more Revolutionary War history to boast - the birthplace of our nation formed all around us, and we've unique in that we have many Revolutionary War-era homes and structures still standing. So where are we, exactly?

We also have great antiquing, thriftiquing, and quaint shops spread across four unique and historic downtowns to keep the shopper in your family busy.
