Great campground for kayaking and fishing

We have stayed at Badin Lake campground a couple times and would recommend it to anyone that likes to kayak and fish. Being able to camp on the water and just slide the kayaks in and out is great. There are trails around the lake to explore and the sites are nice size so you don’t feel like you are on top of other campers

Quiet place

I solo camped here for the first time last summer. Facilities were clean, whole campground was so quiet. Beautiful park, big lake, great hiking. Can't wait to go back.

Quiet weekend

I stayed for 2 nights in the beginning of March. There weren’t many other campers because the forecast called for rain all weekend but ended up only raining for a few hours one night, lucky me! The whole park was pretty quiet, including the trails. There was a nice tent pad with a fire pit and picnic table, and a man came around bringing wood for $5 a bundle if you needed it. We had a quite a few deer passing close by through the night! Was a nice, quiet, relaxing weekend!

Nice value and clean sate park

Great Campsites, nice wooded sites and close to lake access. Great hiking trails and very family friendly. Deer walked right behind our site. Boat ramp in campground. Swim area and playground.

Wear bright colors during hunting season!

Make sure to wear bright colors during hunting season because there are a tong of people out deer hunting in this area. That being said there are a ton of great campsites that are private and secluded.

Random mountain in the middle of NC

Camping here is cheap and theres plenty to do if your outdoorsy there tons of hiking trails a plublic boat ramp to lake tillery fishing is allowed just a all around relaxing place

Simple but we were okay with that

We really liked this campground we had a double site that was huge it was minutes from uwharrie national forest and badin lake. We'll defiantly go back.

Decent older campground showing its age.

Holly Bluff is ok for a quiet getaway. It's an older place that they're trying to keep up with decent landscaping, etc. The mini-golf was in disrepair and closed. The game room was locked. The pool was good. The staff is friendly. Many 'permanent' trailers are in place, with gaudy outside decorations. Dog friendly, but we saw some running free. Hookups, picnic tables, and fire rings were on level sites. Rates are good, but they only accept cash or check.

Week of Relaxation

This is an awesome campground. Great access to Badin Lake for kayaking, swimming and fishing. Our group explored the the trails which were scenic and easy to transverse. The bathrooms are well maintained and good freshwater source. The sites do not have power but we were able to work around it!

Not many sewer sites and difficult to get reservations.

This campground sells memberships. Lots of members, but few available sites as a result.

Great large campground

Though larger in # of sites, has many amenities you may need. Water, grills, tables, swimming beaches, showers, boat ramps, paddling access, fishing, wildlife-plenty. Be careful, gate hours are enforced. Nice size group sites.

Quiet, neat, clean place to stay

Cleanest pool I have been in in years, nice catch n release pond, quiet, they sprayed for bugs, lots are pull they and plenty of space

I wouldn’t even bother here

Roy Dean stayed he would hold a site for us and our Grandson for a long weekend. He said to call 1 week before. He did not accept visa Or any cards at all, had to pay cash upon arrival.

Well I called and he said he didn’t save a space for us! Why would he do such a thing. I won’t ever give him a chance. August 2018

Convenience is key

Close to highway, conveniently located & open restaurants in winter. Also lots of souvenirs shops if that’s what you’re into.

Camping at Jordan Lake

Great place to camp!! Very empty during the weekdays (which is great) but the bathrooms are closed Mon-Fri

Perfectly relaxing!

Such a beautiful, relaxing campground! Some sites are on the lake and close enough to pull your boat up to the shore. The bathhouse has a lot to be desired. Beach is nice and the sites are spacious. I love this campground!

Scenic family campground overlooking Jordan Lake. Fishing and boating...lei

Reservations are a must to get the best spots. Apply sunscreen and bring some water toys:)

Our First NC Camping Experience

Jordan Lake was the perfect place to start our camping adventures! Our spot was mostly shaded which was perfect for our dog, and we were able to walk into the lake from our spot! The site had everything we needed (picnic table, fire ring, trash hang etc.) The bathrooms did run out of toilet paper, so I’d bring your own just in case. We’ll be back though!

Sites on the Lake, clean and easy access

I rented my site online and was pleased by the low price for a campsite on a lake. The road in is a little rough but not too crazy. There is not an office or anything once you arrive (so no last minute supplies) but there is a paystation if you show up and want to camp. The camp host puts out signs of when the sites are rented so that you can find an empty site for a night.

Bathrooms were clean and well lite. There is a trail that takes you around the lake edge, easy walking. Not a lots if fishing right from the edge by the campsites due to tall grasses but there is a great fishing area with docks in a short drive or 20 min walk.

Was on site 18…we had 2 tents and 2 cars and plenty of room.

camping at Morrow

it’s pretty big with lots of sites to choose from!

Pass through

This is a clean KOA with good showers. The facilities are well maintained. Few sites are shaded and they are small. There is little privacy, but for an overnight stay it is okay.

You can order some good food delivered right to your site from a local restaurant, that can be a plus.


this is a terrific place, no septic on sites. No water in off season. Excellent hiking trail.

Large some what secluded sites.

We love going there with our dogs. Plenty of room for them at the site. Some what private sites. We always try to get near the water for easy excess. Camp there usually 2-3 times a year.

Just drove through

this rustic place is right near the airport and I 95. lots of trees.

perfect for a day trip

great hiking paths, going deep into the woods. we have not camped there because they only accept tents.

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.

Twice a visitor

I went for a weekend with my girlfriends and then went with three families and stayed at a group site. if you have enough people the group site is amazing. we were able to be on our own and had great facilities for showering. This is by far my favorite place to go camping.

Great for families that want to be in bed by 9

The campground and bathhouse was very clean. There is room for a couple tents at each site. There are quiet hours after a certain time of night. The camp host yelled at us twice for TALKING at a low volume after quiet hours. Unfortunately we somehow ended up at the sites right next ti his, so maybe it would be better a little farther from the camp host… but needless to say, we wont be back. We will be going somewhere that we can actually ENJOY camping.
