This recreation area is part of B. Everett Jordan Lake. Crosswinds Campground offers 182 campsites for both recreational vehicles and tent camping; 134 sites have water and electric hookups. Each site includes a picnic table, grill, and lantern holder. Showers, restrooms, trash containers and a dump station are conveniently located.
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.
