The CG was clean and spacious. It almost had the feel of a state park with the addition of full hookups. Almost. We stayed for two days in the A loop in a pull through. It was level. B loop has back in sites that are spacious but may need some leveling. In both loops there is plenty of shade with many trees between sites. Near the entrance there are sites with full sun - near the pool. I can see where this is a favorite CG for weekends. We were here during the week with very little company.
As stated in other reviews, access from I-85 is quick and easy. There is also some highway noise, but not objectionable. All in all, this is a very nice CG for a quick stop over or for a multiple day escape. We would certainly come here again. We camped at Cross Winds Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

As far as I can tell, there's not a whole lot close by. However, a side trip to Old Salem (26 miles) is well worth the ride. It is a historical site depicting live from the 1770's settlement of the Moravians. Sort of a non-English Williamsburg. A real must see. Go to the Old Salem Visitor's Center first.

This was an over night stop, our first on a month-long trip. Our grandson checked out the pool adjacent to our very level site. A great beginning to our trip. We camped at Cross Winds Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This was an overnight stop for us. Very easy access to I-85. We had a pull thru that was level and easy to get into. The showers and bathrooms were immaculate, as was the laundry room. Washing machines were $1.75, dryers were $1.50, and fully dried towels and jeans with one cycle. We would definitely stay here again! We camped at Cross Winds Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This was a one-night stay for us on the way to New England. It was well located just off I-85 with easy in and out. The excellent layout and ease of maneuvering through the campground is a testament to the owners' RV experience. We were impressed with the "campground" feel of the RV park, with different areas offering different ambiences. The bath houses were the cleanest we have ever seen. Immaculate. Fresh. Sites were large, private, shaded and level. Very nice playground for kids. Highly recommend for a night or a vacation. We camped at Cross Winds Family Campground in a Motorhome.

We loved this campground which is owned by retired RVers. It is clear that their experiences on the road have contributed to the layout and ongoing expansion of the park. Easily accessible off I-85. The owners are delightful and extremely helpful. We would plan to stay here if traveling along North Carolina's I-85 in the future. We camped at Cross Winds Family Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for two nights to allow us time to visit the North Carolina Transportation Museum in Spencer. The office staff was courteous and friendly.We were here during a spring cold spell. We had a FHU PT site and all systems worked well. This campground is "long rig" friendly and relatively level. The grounds were neatly kept with no trash lying around. We camped at Cross Winds Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

While here we ate at Yarborough's Restaurant in Lexington. That's a 4 star restaurant in our opinion. Doesn't look like much from the outside, but the food was outstanding.

Big rig friendly with level sites even though the campground was hilly. The GPS gave us wrong direction. You need to take I85 exit 84. You go over the bridge and take first left to Campground Road. You will see small campground sign. Showers and laundry was good. Cable was good but Wi-Fi was not available at our site. No dog park but several fields to walk dog. No activities and pool was closed due to season. We camped at Cross Winds Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We drove 5 hours from Richmond VA to Kings Mountain NC to trade RVs for a new Holiday Rambler. It would have been to much to go back after the walk through so I looked up campgrounds and Crosswinds had a high rating. I called and Glenda was wonderful. On way knew it would be after 5 when I got there so I called and she said no problem. We had no food in new unit so she told us to go to Hendrix in Spencer. Great choice. Great campground.

Very easy to find as it is right off I85 and they have signs pointing you to the campground. We camped in a 38' motorhome. Easy to maneuver to get to sites. Very clean and friendly. Staff make you feel at home.

Will definitely be back. We camped at Cross Winds Family Campground in a Motorhome.

We had a very good stay. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Because we had problems with our jacks the owners let us change sites without hesitation. We hope to return if ever in North Carolina again.

The camp was easy to access and was very clean and well cared for. Laundry and bath house are very clean and well located. We camped at Cross Winds Family Campground in a Motorhome.

We stopped here for a mid-week overnight and were one of only a handful of campers. Rate shown included a 50% discount for Passport America. Our site was a pull-through which was convenient as we didn't have to disconnect the towed. The owner stopped by after we arrived to collect the fee. The site was level and had full hookups, including cable service. The site is a very short distance off I-85 and very convenient for through travelers. We camped at Cross Winds Family Campground in a Motorhome.

Wonderful park with a great atmosphere. We stayed here over the weekend and were blown away. Very nice CG with great owners and campers alike. Pool was open even though we stayed after Labor Day and was clean and up to date. The Playground where my daughter spent most of her time was very large and clean and had plenty for her to do. WIFI worked great and the cable was pretty good too. We will stay here again and we recommend it to anyone. Only about 30 mins from Concord Mills and plenty of other local attractions.

Price reflects six day stay. Roads coming into the park to the office and around the pool are paved. Most of the interior roads are also paved. Sites are gravel and good sized in length and width. Excellent Cable TV. Wi-Fi only had one day it was a little slow, otherwise no complaints. Most sites have trees, some don't. Our site was unlevel side to side two inches. Does allow campfires. Easy in and out with a HDT and trailer (60 ft. combo) We camped at Cross Winds Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

New clean campground with large lot spaces. The owners are very sweet people and take time out of their day to conversant with the campers. Found this location to be a very peaceful clean campground that I will return to again due to the convenience and hospitality of the owners. Great location.

Friendly hosts. Some sites have shade, some don't. This park is working to add more sites. We found a few short hiking trails and there was an area to ride our bikes. We will return to this park again. We camped at Cross Winds Family Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed here 5 nights. For a private campground it felt like being in a state park. All back-in sites have much space between them, with large trees separating the sites. Gravel pads, with picnic table and fire ring, along with full hookups. Playground for children. Main pull-through section sites have less space and no trees. It is not far from interstate, so there is road noise at night, but if you camp in the B section you are the farthest away from noise. It was constructed in 2009, and laid out well to give each site ample space and separation. Only a few criticisms: Shower room lights are on motion detect with timed delay shutoff. Wife was not happy to have the lights turn off in the middle of her night time shower. Their rules say "Please DO NOT set grills on picnic tables." I carry a table top grill and using it on the ground is very bad for my back, and I do not carry a separate stand for it. I did discuss this with the staff and they gave me permission, I think. Signage to find the campground could be better. The only signs directing one to the campground are in the form of street name signs. I didn't have the map with me, did not see the street sign with the campground name and a little arrow on it, and turned at the exit onto the wrong road and had to go a few miles before I could turn around my rig towing our car. No sign at the exit corner with directional arrow, nor at the next turn, like most campgrounds have. Only sign was at the actual driveway into the campground. We camped at Cross Winds Family Campground in a Motorhome.
