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 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

This park (and my review) does seem oriented toward longer stays but Cotten's rents for day, week or month. Rate above was based on $325/month. We needed a place for a few months, fairly close to Raleigh/Cary and Sanford. It is a small, friendly, family owned park - well maintained with good gravel roads and easy access to US-1. We had a site with a nice wooded view and away from the highway The site was level. Hookups are convenient and well maintained. There are long term campers here but everything is clean and neat. Set your expectations. We were looking location and price, not a resort or amenities, so Cotten's fit the bill perfectly. Owner or his son will even fill your empty propane tank if you set it in front of the trailer! Easy access from exit 79 or 78. We called on our way in, so one of the family met us and helped with parking and setup! I strongly recommend calling in advance, and when you are close. - Wayward

* Price incldues $3 online reservation charge and $5 water-front surcharge Another gorgeous NC State Park...all spots are heavily wooded. Our spot (#75) had a fairly steep slope, but a great view of the lake. Elec & water avaialable -- no issues. Rangers drove through several times a day and trash emptied twice a day. Restrooms were dated (too bad NC isn't willing to use its budget surplus) but servicable. Only 4 showers (male and female, each) for the entire loop, so you may have to wait if it gets busy. Two swim "beaches" availble within the campground and a hiking trail that connects all loops. - ricks99

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

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

Cash only! This campground didn't accept credit cards so be prepared. It's a basic campground; entirely graveled and reasonably level but you may still need to level your rig. It looks like most folks are long-term but they are quiet and pretty nice. The utilities work and are gathered near the power pedestal. This campground serves a need but it's not what I would call a destination. - KC8RXQ

We stayed here for a quick 2-night trip to the Raleigh area. It was easy to get in and out of. When we arrived, we went to the big red barn assuming there would be an office there - just restrooms and laundry. The host came driving up on a golf cart because she had been watching for us and directed us to our site which was an easy pull though and very level. The sites are just long enough for the trailer, but they were very wide so we were able to park beside it. We weren't there much except to sleep so can't comment about amenities. - mmhopper

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
