  • I have traveled here many times. It is a beautiful park and lake. Great place to fish, camp, hike etc. 
  • been twice, lots of camp sites, good views of lake, but most of the best views are for non electric sites. 
  • We launched our boat from one of their many launches. Well laid out , easy in and out of the water. They don't accept discover for the low entrance fee, so bring cash or visa ! 
  • Took my kids and loved it. It is very clean and quiet. My kids are looking forward to going back this year. The sites are a nice size for 2 tents. Great place.
  • Great place for picnic and swimming. Bring your floats, there is plenty of room. Sit back and watch the boats and jet skis go by. Many beach access areas to choose from. Absolutely beautiful Lake.
  • Great lake to be on. I've taken my sailboat here and enjoy the scenery. Coming from the Midwest it was nice to see this isn't as busy/crowded as the Chain of Lakes. Wish there were more shore side businesses though, people out this way must like it quiet
  • LOVE Jordan Lake. My family loves to picnic here, and go for hikes. (Just be mindful of fire ant mounds- I got myself destroyed last time we were out there!)
  • GREAT place to take the family or just get away for the weekend. Great Fishing and Camping. Everything you can look for in a Campground. Very Well maintained, to include Boat Ramps, Restrooms. The only bad thing I see is that the Marina doesn't carry any bait for fishing, Imagine that Right? But other than that small detail, Great Place, and is only 1 hr from Fayetteville, NC.
