Imagine relaxing in a cove, listening to the sounds of water rippling. Then, a firm tug on your fishing line. It’s going to be a big one! Picture the surface of the lake glistening, water spraying your face. The boat motor ahead roaring. Suddenly, your skis give way, a splash landing! Hear the laughter of children, smell charcoal drifting through the air, feel a breeze blowing over the campground. With almost 14,000 acres of water, all this and more is yours to discover at Jordan Lake. The N.C. Division of Parks and Recreation operates eight recreation areas on the lake: Crosswinds Campground, Ebenezer Church, Parkers Creek, Poplar Point, Seaforth, Vista Point, Robeson Creek and New Hope Overlook. Whether you’re looking for fun in the sun or an evening under the stars, Jordan Lake offers it all.
