Poplar Point Campground Loops C, F to Close for Connect NC Bond Upgrades

Raleigh, N.C. - Loops C and F at Jordan Lake State Recreation Area’s Poplar Point Campground will be closed effective March 12 for campground upgrades. The loops will re-open this fall when the projects are complete.

Visitors who have reservations at campsites in these loops during those dates should call the reservation center at 1-877-7-CAMP-NC. Visitors will be offered a transfer to another campsite or a full refund. Campsites in loops G and H will be available for transfer early to those with existing reservations in the affected loops. The first-come, first-served loop will not be eligible for reservations. 

The campsites in loops C and F will be upgraded from 30-amp hook-ups to 50-amp hook-ups. The shower houses that serve these camping loops will also be renovated. Projects will be completed with funds allocated from the Connect NC Bond referendum, a $2.4 billion package favored by North Carolina voters to support water and sewer projects, state parks and facilities for agriculture, public safety and the National Guard.

Visitors seeking up-to-date information should check the park webpage at ncparks.gov/jordan-lake-state-recreation-area.
