Key Haven

We will be changing out the lock on Monday, January 29, 2024. As of that date, your current key will no longer work. Please plan your trips accordingly.

To continue your Key Haven access and renew your membership online in Reporter (see Keys for Key Haven). Please return your 2023 key either by campus/U.S. mail (CB 7210) or in-person at HR reception in Admin II.

If you paid for your membership on or after January 1, 2024, you do not need to renew your membership but you do need to swap out your key.

Key Haven is a large wooded site on a peninsula at Kerr Lake. It is available for camping, picnicking, boating, enjoying nature and privacy. It is leased from the Army Corps of Engineers by NC State University to be used by its faculty, staff, graduate students, retirees, legacy key holders and their guests. It has two picnic shelters, picnic tables, tent pads, sandy beaches, a boat ramp, privies and a locked gate. There is no drinking water or electricity. Drinking water must be brought in. Use this facility at your own risk. Pick up litter and burn or pack out all trash when you leave. Please keep the gate locked. Enjoy. Please note the new procedures for obtaining a key on the Keys for Key Haven tab.
