Campsite, trails and boat ramp closures   

Jordan Lake State Recreation Area is experiencing extreme high lake levels due to recent rain storms causing campsites, hiking trails and boat ramps to close until the water starts to recede.
Please keep in mind that the camping will be very limited to what we can offer over the next two to three weeks which will include the Thanksgiving holiday.  If you have reservations during this time please contact the park office (919-362-0586 ext. 0)  to see if your site is affected.  The park office is open Monday through Friday 8am-4:30 and is closed on weekends and all state holidays.

Water at campsites   

Please be advised that the individual water at each campsite will be turned off December 3, 2018 for the winter months as we do not have frost free spigots and they will be in danger of freezing and pipes bursting.  There will be hot water available for showers at the shower houses and water spigots will be available near shower houses for campers to fill up holding tanks on RV/campers as needed.
