This recreation area is part of B. Everett Jordan Lake
There is a lot of workers staying here and they are right next door to us
Things go missing
this is a terrific place, no septic on sites. No water in off season. Excellent hiking trail.
this campground is pretty great except for two things. there is no septic on your site, and they lock the gate after a certain hour. if you need something or arrive after hours you are out of luck.
It has electricity and water and primitive sites with boat ramps
We have camped at Crooswinds several times and we have enjoyed each time. The plane traffic is not too bad. So far we have camped each time in the B loop and every spot we've had has been a good one. You can hear the traffic on highway 64 more in the B loop than in C loop.
The campground, like other ones around Jordan Lake, is beautifully shaded amongst the Carolina pine trees. Most of the sites are close together and do not provide much privacy. However, the double sites provide ample room and more privacy than the single sites. If you are planning on swimming, be prepared to walk to the swimming beach. Access to the lake can be treacherous with steep and rocky banks near the campsites.
Right alongside the water of Jordan Lake, crosswinds has a great location! We had a larger group coming so we loved the double sites available. We were close to water and the bathrooms and a short drive away from the boat launch and meadow trails. We didn't see the sun this weekend, but there was still a lot to do!! Would recommend, especially for group trips.
We recently took a trip to this campground after years of camping at other spots on Jordan Lake and we loved it. The facilities were close by and very clean. We decided to stay at this spot because of the close proximity to astronomy event that was taking place nearby. The Moorehead Planetarium has events at Jordan Lake about once a month and this was a great opportunity to see space and have a fun camping trip.
Jordan lake has so much opportunity--from walking trails to great water activities. There are public and private beaches, and Crosswinds has great beach access. You could be camping just yards from the beach and lake. Though the pictures are from a gloomier day, I've had so many great sunny days at Jordan Lake--including the first time I was ever able to get up on some water skis!
I would recommend this campsite to college students looking to get away from the Chapel Hill/Carrboro area… particularly during the summers when it gets hot and early fall.
