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.
It is a nice campground if you are into car camping and don't mind potentially being near a crowd. I have camped here a few times and have experienced everything from packed and loud conditions to virtually empty and serene campgrounds. The setting itself is nice, as the Piedmont forest and lake are scenic. Great for canoeing, kayaking, boating, and fishing. The location is also great, as it is convenient to all parts of the NC Triangle. Ticks are problematic, and the mosquitoes can also be oppressive in the summer months.
This is hands down the best campground at Jordan Lake. There are beach side campsites, hiking trails and a swimming area all within walking distance from any campsite. We always camp at site 37 on loop 1. When the tide on low on the lake, you have about ten feet of beach to play on or fish from. This time the tide was high so we couldn't enjoy the beach as much, but the breeze coming from the lake to our tent was amazing. The only drawback is that you are pretty close to the Rt. 64 bridge, so you can hear traffic from this particular site. There are more secluded sites available. Loops 1 & 2 are advance registration only. Loops 3 & 4 are first come, first serve walk-up registration only.
