More of what matters.
Mecklenburg County is well-known as Southern Virginia’s Lake Country because it is home to the very popular Kerr Lake and Lake Gaston. These scenic lakes offer great opportunities for boating, paddling, fishing or simply relaxing. Clarksville, located on the western shore of Kerr Lake, is Virginia’s only lakeside town. Lake living and water recreation is a big part of life in Mecklenburg County.
In addition to our lakes and rivers, there are charming small towns to explore with unique shopping and dining options. Connecting the towns is plenty of open road for scenic drives and perhaps some surprises along way, such as wineries, farm tours, historic sites and awesome parks.
One of the great things about Mecklenburg County is how easy it is to get here. It is less than an hour by car from Richmond and Raleigh and not much further from Norfolk or even Washington, DC. When you spend less time getting here, you can spend more time enjoying what matters most, like relaxing and spending time with family. Enjoy more Meck.
