Charlotte County is home to abundant wildlife and offers many opportunities to view animals in their natural habitats. The county is traversed by two driving trails in the Virginia Wildlife & Birding Trail system, the Roanoke-Meherrin Summit Loop and the Staunton River Loop.
In addition, Staunton River Battlefield State Park and Clarkton Bridge both offer short walking/biking trails that are excellent for birders and wildlife enthusiasts.
Buggs Island Lake (John H. Kerr Reservoir), a sprawling 50,000-acre reservoir with 800 miles of shoreline, located in the southern tip of Charlotte County, is a "must" for visitors and residents of the county. The lake is especially known for its striped bass, a migratory species landlocked in this huge body of water. Other fish species include largemouth bass, white bass, perch, walleye, chain pickerel, crappie, sunfish, and catfish. A boat ramp offers easy access to the Staunton River. Year in and year out, Charlotte County provides hunters with the best opportunities for whitetail deer, wild turkey, and small game hunting.
