15 RV Parks near Chapel Hill, North Carolina
Jul 2013 - $12.00
This is a small, very peaceful park; one of those parks you are comfortable in from the start. The tenants, owners, and park employees were nice and helpful. Many of the tenants are workers at the local nuclear plant, and generally stay a month-or-more. The $12 rate reflects the monthly rate. We were charged $25 extra for water usage because we had/used our own board washer and dryer. There are no pads or patios; something for which I lower my rating. Many of the lots are not completely level; I had my front wheels almost off the ground, but a park employee had a wooden step there almost before I shut my engine off. US-1 highway is close, but not a factor. I would recommend this park. - carderh

As others have noted, the owner of this campground is exceptionally nice. He was very distraught that we had to use a less attractive site because they were booked solid the day we arrived. We weren't nearly as upset about it as he was. The CG is in a rural setting surrounding a pond. The sites and roads are gravel; they are fairly narrow and had limited area for sitting outside. There are tall trees all around the CG, but no trees in the sites themselves; satellite TV reception should be easy from most sites. Verizon service was fairly strong. - docj

It has been a pleasure staying at Jordan Dam RV Park. The grounds are very well maintained- grassy meadows, a new pond with a pier, big shady oaks and friendly people. The owners, are the most down-to-earth friendly hosts you will ever meet- they even helped us set up our camper! We have never experienced better service. We love the convenience to the lake and the quiet country setting. The sound of crickets and frogs are the perfect backdrop for an evening outside. We definitely have plans to return to this campground. In our opinion it is heads above the others in the area- just check it out for yourself and you'll see why. - AreV

The owner is one of the nicest, most helpful people we have come across. We stayed 5 nights. Even though he was on vacation himself, he called us, as we were arriving and guided us to the right spot. We forgot part of our sewer hose when we left. He called and then drove nearly 20 miles to return it to us. The grounds are nice and very quiet. This was the best we could find in the area and we are really glad we chose this park. We highly recommend it. - Frank and Pam Lee

Beautiful park set in the woods. It was quiet, clean and very well kept. There is a lake on the property. Owner very helpful and knowledgeable of the area. Wonderful place close to Jordan Lake Boat access. - Roe1

This is by far the best campground we have stayed in. It is quiet, secluded, and has a charm all its own. The owner is very nice and accommodating to any needs that may arise. The lots are spacious and shady. There is a pond where you can sit and relax, feed the fish, or watch the deer feed and play in the edge of the woods. We spent a year here working and I would not ever consider staying anywhere else while in this area. I will also make this a vacation spot in the years to come. We were even allowed to plant a garden, which became the campgrounds community garden. Everyone chipped in and we had a wonderful time getting together eating the vegetables of our labor. We made many wonderful friends here and will stay in contact with them. I would recommend Goodwin's to anyone wanting to stay in the Jordan Dam and Lake area. - scluv2camp

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

Lovely mountain farm and woods setting with horses and a fishing pond, this campground is home to Bluegrass Music Festivals on Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends. Owners were friendly, did offer to help us park. We had a back-in site on a hill side that sloped and we didn't have enough blocks to fully level. We did not use the bathrooms or showers. - Mom_of_Two

Nice level sites, good power, water and sewer hookups. Manager very friendly and helpful. Sites are very wide. Actually the widest sites that I have encountered. If in area would most definitely stay again. - Peter4r

We were in the area for a competition and at the same time the local Nuke plant was undergoing a refitting. This essentially means that every place in 25 miles where you could park and RV was booked months in advance for extended periods. The owner was very accommodating in that he promised us that he would find us a place with a plug and water if we needed it for the three nights we'd be in the area. He did and for that I am giving him 5 stars across the board. The park is clean and I have to admit to having paid 3x this a night for not much more. The service was exactly what was promised.
The park is essentially four lanes of parking sites with a water/electric/sewer post separating them, the sites are about 40 feet deep and 35-40 feet wide. There is a large grass lawn area between the two separate areas. This is not a destination Camping Resort and it is not claiming to be. What it is is a place to park while you do what ever it may be that you are in the area to do. We found it to be quiet.
We had 30 amp service, and that was all we really needed in early April, in the summer I would definitely want 50 for the AC. I didn't try the cable, but the TV brought in maybe 20 channels. Wi-Fi was there and free, it wasn't the fastest ever, but it was there, it worked and it was free.
I would stay here again and probably will as I expect to be in this area from time to time in the future. - blues traveler

Located on a working farm, this is a clean, quiet park with 40'x40' spaces, with plenty of open sky for satellite reception. Utilities worked fine and internet was good, although Verizion signal was weak here. This is not a resort, but an excellent place to stay while exploring the area. Lots to see and do in the Raleigh area and a short drive to golf mecca in Pinehurst and Southern Pines. The State Farmers Market Restaurant in Raleigh was very good, with all kinds of fruits, vegetables, meats and flowers just across the street. The manager here is just wonderful, escorting us to our space and making sure that all is right before leaving. We really enjoyed our time here. - ronboett
