Great Place

We enjoyed this campsite. It was clean, quiet and very close to the boat ramp! We had a great time and will definitely be back!

A Short Drive, Yet a World Away

This area is such a short drive from the triangle area of North Carolina, yet this park feels quite remote. Like many state parks, this one excels in the services department. 

Bathrooms and showers were clean and comfortable, as were the campsites. 

Each camping loop felt tucked away into its own little neighborhood, and the large campsites offered space so that you aren’t stacked right next to your neighbor.  We camped in the nonelectric loop (we always bring our solar panel) for 3 nights in mid-February and there were very few campers around, but the neighboring loop with electrical hook-up sites were 3/4 full with large rigs. 

Hiking, biking, paddling, are all great things to do during your stay. There is also a boat launch within the park in case power boating or fishing is your thing, but kayaks and canoes can easily launch from the lakeside campsites.  It was a bit too chilly to get on the water in February, so we opted for hiking and biking.

The closest services for gas or a few extra snacks are within 5 minutes of the park.

Great access to the lake

This is a pretty nice campground, similar to other state parks in North Carolina. The sites are spacious, we stayed at a double site that allowed up to 4 cars. The site was level and stayed dry during the heavy rain, however we saw other sites that had big puddles, with tents in the water. The bathrooms were cleaned regularly, but they were not very nice. The shower didn't look good at all, we didn't use it.

A great things about the campground is that it has its own kayak/canoe ramp, just a few minutes drive from the site. We saw people fishing from the ramp as well. On our morning paddle we saw a couple of bald eagles, they were amazing. We stayed at the campsite after heavy rains, so the beach was closed. It must be nice when not flooded.

This is a state campground, so alcohol is not allowed.

Love this one!

Love the beach and waterside camping

Lots of hiking

Trails galore fishing biking swimming

Mud hole, the site we had was under water after a light rain and didn’t dry

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.

beautiful views, fun lake

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.

Nice weekend retreat with a surrounding lake

It has electricity and water and primitive sites with boat ramps

The good and the bad at Crosswinds

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.
