Beyond Beautiful

Reserve online to assure a spot. Every single space is HUGE, even the tent only sites. Lake views are everywhere. There are various loops for tents and RV's. Water for tents; water and electric for campers. 2 different dump sites. Firewood in 2019 is $5. Must be in the campground by 8 pm before the gates are locked.

Beaches will be cleaned up after heavy spring rains. Plenty of sand for swimming, boat docks, and fishing.

Chapel Hill, Durham and Raleigh easy drives for sightseeing. Weekend camping traffic is gone and there has been silence.

Will probably be crazy here in the summer but would like to return in the fall mid-week.

Beautiful and Tranquil

This campground is easily accessible and the campground roads are well maintained. The bathhouse is clean and has hot showers. The only downside is that the showers have a pre-set temperature and only stay on for about 30 seconds at a time. Also the doors to the shower are very short allowing anyone to easily see over the top. The campsites are very clean and well maintained. The most beautiful, waterfront sites are non-electric. The electric sites (though not waterfront) are very nice as well. There are several loops in this campground. All are reservable except loop E which is first come, first served. The campground has a nice beach and a trail that connects most of the loops. Wi-fi is not available though LTE signal is strong.


Perfect weather awesome campsite! Clean bathrooms and showers .Lots of good Waterfront campsites.

Our first trip in our Forest River Wildcat

This was our first trip to Poplar Point and our first trip in our new camper. There was a pond across from our campsite but we didn't catch anything. Our site was a level site and it was very peaceful during our stay.

Another great part of Jordan Lake

I can't get enough of Jordan lake. This place is excellent for walking, hiking, boating, canoeing, fishing and more. I've been here on multiple occasions during the summer to beat the heat.

They don't like to have too large of groups though, just FYI

First to Review
Lake beach access

My group was looking for a place to host a bigger camping trip so we visited Poplar Point and Crosswinds (both on Jordan Lake). Poplar point was very cool. It has a boat launch, lakeside campgrounds, and an awesome swimming beach. The bathrooms are close and clean. The only problem is Poplar Point doesn't do any "group" campsites so if you're going with friends or a larger family, Crosswinds is definitely the way to go.
