The Park was a pleasant surprise. The RV campground is very basic, a full hook up on a gravel grass spot. Not a problem to get to or back into a spot. There are trees, but mostly open. It was quiet and nice for our stay at the horse show on the grounds. No bathrooms here at RV campsite, no fire ring or picnic tables. - kimme

What a great find! Extra large back in spaces with full hookups. No wifi or cable, but we picked up many local TV channels with our antenna. Great Verizon signal so no wifi was ok. Park staff were friendly and professional. Security came by regularly. They were preparing for the state fair so the area was freshly landscaped and everything looked great. We will stay here again for sure. - Arizona Nancy

We needed a place close to RDU airport. We weren't expecting much, but ended up enjoying our time there. According to their website, the max stay is 14 days, but if they have openings, they'll let you stay (we were there a month). Someone mentioned that the gravel made for lots of dust, but they had a water truck that went through every day of our stay. FHU at $30/day was very reasonable, especially as I ran two A/Cs non stop. - DaBlairs

First time camping here although it is less than 30 minutes from home. There are just a few sites that will accommodate a popup camper. We stayed on site 22 which is large enough to work for us. Fairly quiet campground other than the airplanes coming and going into nearby RDU. Overall a nice campground if you can live without electrical hook ups. - jrackley

Nice park but not designed for campers. There are 2 maybe 3 sites that can accommodate a trailer. There are no hook ups and they close the gate at 2000 until 0600. Nice park to visit and maybe if you camp in a tent it's fine but not for a camper. No alcohol allowed in the park if that's a consideration for you. - tx_rambler

We stayed at Crosswinds on 4 separate trips between end of October and Early December. Sites are great with paved roads and gravel sites. All are improved with fire pit and table with a lantern pole. All sites in loops C and B have electric and water. All sites are back ins. Even at this time of year we needed to make reservations to stay. Water was turned off for the winter third week of November. CG will be open all winter. Sites are very large and very private and mostly wooded along the reservoir. Most sites are pretty level and can accommodate big rigs. Gate remains open 24/7. Campground very quiet even on weekends. Cannot control water temp in showers but seemed adequate. Showers are getting a bit dated and will need upgrade soon. - travlinphoolz

We stayed for 4 nights in B50. Site was open when we arrived and was clear of trash. Site is gravel and it only required 1/2 inch to level. Power and water hook up were fine. Table and fire pit/ grill where clean as could be expected. Site is short walk to water, maybe 75 yards. It did not show any signs that other campers cut thru site to get to water. Good buffer on both sides to other sites. Site was long enough for 30 ft camper, truck and mini-van to park.
It is a short walk to the bath house. Bath house is typical parks style- could use an update, has push button shower that cuts off about the time you get soaped up, but water was hot enough.
The camp host is beside the bathhouse and appears to have been there awhile- as in a permanent site. Camper was under pinned and items build into place. Did not meet here but did see her walking large dog off lead...
Roads in and out were good, nothing strange. Dump site is large and set for vech. to pull to either side. - mj1angier

Nice campground on our way to the coast of North Carolina. Our campsite was very private, but too far from the restrooms and showers. We were at the far end of loop B and the closest restrooms weren't that great. The restrooms and showers aren't adequate for a campground this size. On the weekend I had to stand in line. Otherwise it was a good stay. I would return if I could get a site closer to the restrooms. Some sites in loop B do flood in rainy weather. - JC69

Located on Jordan Lake. Large level sites. Water & 30A service at most sites. Dump station near gate. Gate locks at 9:00 pm. Bath house is clean, but not heated. Recreations suggested vis website as it gets pretty full during the Summer. Great for a weekend get away if you're in the Raleigh area. - amxpress

The site itself was awesome. We travel to a TON at NC State Parks, however the bathrooms at Poplar Point were terrible. It was a holiday weekend, so I'm not sure if it was the amount of people or what. I believe first and foremost, it's the campers to blame, but perhaps the campground could use more staff for holiday weekends? The toilets were disgusting. Campers, if you have small children, please make sure they actually flush after going into a restroom they may not know how to work. - LittleLadyBliss

The state park is lovely with large RV sites that are mostly level; we only needed to do minor leveling. Our first site #21 in Loop F had no water so we had to unhook and go back to the ranger station to switch sites. We chose #32 and were very pleased.
We chose this campground in the park because it advertised a playground but there was none there. We had our 4 year old grandson and a playground would have been nice. Before leaving the state park, we did visit another campground to be sure they had their advertised playground.
The bath house in Loop F was horrible. The toilet area was OK but the showers were dirty and looked like they had not been cleaned in weeks. One stall had a plastic shower curtain that had a lot of dirt and black marks (not mold) on it. They could also be updated but cleaning would make them look so much better. - CraftCrazy

I love NC State Parks, my only real complaint about Jordan Lake and it's campgrounds is that the pictures on the website are outdated and there is A LOT of drop off now. You never really know what kind of waterfront site you will get until you get there. The picture makes it look like a nice beach, but when you get there it's all stumps and a rocky drop off you have to climb down to get to the water. Other than that and the bathrooms needing an update in some campgrounds, Jordan Lake is nice. The sites are always clean and nicely sized. - LittleLadyBliss

An absolutely delightful place for a night or a week. The rate is the senior rate. In September during the week the park is almost empty. Although there is no cable, it is easy to gain TV with a regular antenna. - WNC Traveler

Very nice campground to stay for a weekend get away. Would not recommend for a long term stay. Security gate closes at 8:00pm. - grey

Leaving Rollingview State Park at Falls Lake, NC. Beautiful park, nice sized sites with W&E. Separate pump out station. Gravel sites. All have picnic table and large fire pit with cooking grate. Couple of fishing piers, playgrounds, beach, trails, clean facilities. Only a few other folks in the entire place! - 2bounders

State park, sites are spaced away from other sites. Most sites are difficult to back into and not very level. No alcohol allowed. No sewer hook-up. Peaceful, not many campers probably because it was 90+ each day. The lake is huge, you need a motorized boat to take advantage of it. Park has a marina and offers canoe, kayak and SUP rental but nothing motorized. - Bburgbrewer

$18 per night was for a packed sand pull-though site with 30-amp electric and water. Our site, #B002 in the Rolling View campground, was shaded by large trees. The site had a composite picnic table and fire ring. The campground was built when large RVs were not being made and everyone camped in pop-ups or tents. No matter which way you enter the site, the approach is steep. If the picnic table was repositioned, you might be able to position a large RV on the spacious area so that it would be level. It was pleasantly quiet during our stay even over the weekend when many families arrived. The road through the campground is asphalt and wide. The park access was unmanned when we arrived but a park ranger came around later to check us in and advise of their policies, which include no alcohol. Our site was by a stream that really rushed after the several thunderstorms we had. There are many activities available, which you can find listed on their website. The campground is centrally between Durham and Raleigh where any amenity is available. AT&T and Verizon cell signals were low but usable. We received 21 digital over-the-air TV stations and many radio stations. - DD Rolling Ranch

This is an old mobile home park. Interior roads are paved and there were a few low hanging trees. It is clean and well kept. Most spots are back-ins. It is overpriced for the services offered. Our site was not level. We couldn't find a dumpster for trash before leaving. - Ernie & Toni

Found the park with a Google search and called the number stating I would be there within the hour. Great service, great price, friendly and HUGE - HUGE spaces. Wish I could have stayed longer. Late arrival early departure. Thanks and will stay here again. - Jerry in Baytown

Lots of grass and trees. Paved access roads. Sites close to level. Good WiFi. No one was at the office when we arrived. - ta96silver

This park was pretty, quiet and well kept. Rangers drive by multiple times a day. Sites in loop 3 are spacious, secluded and well maintained. Has gravel sites, fairly level with easy hookups. Includes fire ring, picnic table and lamp hook. Nice large lake with boat ramps. Do note that they have dynamic pricing for camp sites and add an extra $3 a day fee to your charges which made it a bit pricey ($27 weekdays, $30 weekend). Water/elec no sewer. Dump station on my area has 2 spots so plan ahead for busy weekend. Had really fast Verizon data here (could work and stream movies), got a decent amount of antenna TV channels. I recommend site 99. Really nice size! - Katina

First time at a NC State Park. Went in a 36 ft MH with wife and 2 girls (8 and 13). Highlights below.
Check in was fast/easy. Were not made to feel welcome. Not a bad experience, just there - minimal attempt to be helpful/interactive. Could have been better from them.
Sites do not have sewer - need to use dump station. Easy and not busy.
Roads were paved and in very good shape. Paths to bathrooms were paved as well. Very nice area - lots of trees, large lake, a couple of paths. Surrounding area is nice as well. Close to Wake Forest and Raleigh. Some very nice things to do in both places - including a free museum in Raleigh that was awesome for the kids (NC Museum of Natural Sciences).
Fair use at the campground over the weekend, but during the week very few people were there. Sites are large and private. Note that our site (73) had a slope to it. We chose it since it had a view of the lake. For our equipment (36 ft) it was a hassle getting level. Had to reposition a few times and extend jacks to the limit (with blocks). The sites across from ours were nice and large and level. Would have been a better choice for larger vehicles. If the reservation site says it is not level - it is not.
Bathrooms were a bit rustic - but it is a state park. Met my expectations. Have been in others that were more modern, but it is what I expected. Usable and clean.
Overall a very nice park, nice facilities, just be careful if you have a large vehicle and need a large site. We would go there again if in the area. - T.Butter

What a beautiful campground! Large private, shaded sites, level, nice yard area. Wonderful beach (2 actually) for swimming/ boating/fishing. Great hiking no trails and nice paved roads for bicking. Very family friendly. One FYI: the gate locks at 10:00 pm (no access in or out) so you must either be in by then or leave car at gate and walk to site. Would have been a 10 if it had sewer hookups. Still, very worth the visit! We'd definitely come back. - Jeni

Staying here for 2 weeks. Rate is weekly rate. Manager very pleasant. Lots of very well kept seasonals here. Great access to I40 and short trip into Raleigh. Camping World just down the road from here as well. Sites are spacious, slightly shaded with gravel back ins and concrete patios. No fires allowed and no picnic tables. Very quiet except for the Route 70 road noise. Plenty of shopping ops just up the road. Rating is due to road noise. - travlinphoolz

Rate is based on the monthly rate. The park was the best maintained park we have ever stayed at. The owner was very helpful and approachable. Everyone in the park was friendly. Dogs were on leashes and mostly picked up after. There are some permanents but there homes are well kept. I will be going back to this park. - Lesterosu
