11 Parks near Mebane, North Carolina

I visited for an overnight stay based upon the great reviews. It was a nice place but its hard for me to give it a 10. Whoever designed the roadways surely did not have experience in laying out RV Parks. The pull thru spaces were quite large but the one I was assigned would have been impossible to get out of without disconnecting the toad due to a tree right at the corner of the site where I'd have to turn. The turns in the park are fairly tight and I saw two trees located on turns that had scrape marks from some unlucky (or inattentive) driver. When I pulled into my first site (#29), besides the impossible turn getting out - It was reading 113 volts so I asked for the site directly in front of me (#24) It turned out to be 113v as well so either the park does not have sufficient power or there was a localized brownout when I was there. Some sites will not have satellite and others will. I had good verizon both cell and data. I'd give it an 8 for nice big sites, but a 5 for the poor layout of the roadways and tight turns in spots. Perfectly fine for an overnight as long as you get into a proper site. I have a 40' class A with an F150 so I'm about 62' long overall, so that is the perspective I have regarding the turns and layout. - MontyHall

This was just a en-route waypoint stopover. Brand new campground. Pull thru, gravel, solid electric power. Large mostly treed sites. Nicely done. Easy on/off I85. Will stop again when more time available to explore. - cdrfred

Excellent stopover. Two years old. Friendly, excellent staff. I needed to borrow a ladder and they brought me one in 15 minutes. Level pads. Back in and pull throughs. Had a deer walk through campsite! About 3 miles off I-85. - Mike from Bama

This place is a dump! The internet photos are misleading. If you don't mind old car and RV parts laying around everywhere, sloppy looking trailers, and an overall trashy look....then you'll be ok with it. At $32 a night it is much higher than state parks. I left as soon as possible! Definitely don't bring children here. - R Moutz

I stayed here 3 months while working in Durham. I am guessing that about 75% of these sites are full of RVs that don't ever go anywhere. The manager is helpful and patrols the park endlessly. I felt very safe here. Besides the sites that have "permanent residents" the shorter term sites seem to cater to patients of Duke who come from all over the country for medical care. There are no showers. Sites are NOT level. Washers and dryers are ineffective. Electric is included. Cable and Internet are available through Time Warner Cable (ugh). This is really not much more than a trailer park. This place serves if you have things to do in Durham... It is NOT "fun camping" and certainly not an RV "resort". The rate is figured at 420/month divided by 30 days. - TravelRNFullTimer

Others call it quirky, I thought we were smack dab in Deliverance. Many people live here in their trailers and sites and some of them appear questionable but are harmless evidently as we had no problems while there. We would leave most of the day and return in evening. The on site manager, is extremely helpful and watches over everything so it was safe despite the shady appearing surroundings including the trashy looking mobile home park on the hillside above. We stayed for a week while in the area because it was the only RV place we could find. Spaces are shady and it was difficult to get DISH reception in the woods however we could pick up some local channels. Spaces are mostly rickety and uneven but the jacks leveled it out. It is surprisingly quiet. Some people say they stay here for months on end. For us, it was OK. This area of North Carolina really should get on board and develop RV sites however it seems they prefer hotels. Birchwood takes only cash or checks and it is cheaper to stay for the week so we did so. - Pat and Jerry

Very secluded, somewhat difficult to find because the signs do not say RV anything, but "Spring Hill." Located at the end of a gravel road next to the church and cemetery. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. - g peter

I spent 5 nights while my wife was in the North Carolina Memorial hospital at Chapel Hill. The staff is extremely friendly and strive to make your stay as pleasant as possible. The park is quiet; large wooded sites with plenty of birds and squirrels. The speed limit is 5 miles per hour, making it safe for children to play and adults to walk without the fear of being hit by a speeder. The best feature, Springhill is a safe place for your family. - Smitty H2016

This is a mobile home park that is being changed over to an RV park so there are a few mobile homes still there. There are also a number of RVs there for an extended period of time. It is a shady, quiet park with a very friendly and helpful staff. It was very restful and comfortable. - Peglegtraveler

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

Two weeks before we arrived, this park had problems with the electricity on our site. Someone replaced the receptacle. They connected the hot wire to the ground plug. I was lucky I had a surge guard that showed problems. I never connected my RV to power until the park maintenance fixed the problem. He first thought the neutral and hot were reversed and switched those sides. I retested and found the problem. There is no telling if anyone before me damaged their RV. The lots are spacious and shady. Site surface was asphalt and features a fire ring and picnic table. - Beas

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
Mar 2010 - $18.00
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

This was not a reservation just a drive up afte a LL call. They said they had a drive thru with 50 amps. It was getting dark so we took it over the phone. When we were escorted by foot walking in frount of the coach I knew we were in trouble, no problem we needed AC so 50 amps was the priority. The site was a 180 turn to get in it and that was after hitting 5 trees with my DTV antenna. After getting in the site there was NO 50 amp only 30. We looked like the only transient in the place, everybody elese has been there a lifetime DONT BOTHER TO STOP. - Scooter & Crew

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

We camped at Parkers Creek in the group tent area. We enjoyed the camp site. It was well organized, clean, and the trash was picked up daily. The fire ring was well positioned with benches for 40. Access to the lake was convenient from the campsite. The bathroom facilities could have used a thorough cleaning. The beach area and playground were enjoyed by the children. - dmaerz

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

Lovely location and employees were pleasant. Sites are far apart and separated by trees. (More crowded close to the beach). Our only minor complaint was that our fire pit hadn't been cleaned in some time. We will definately return here. - SDeasy

We stayed at Cross Winds for Easter Weekend with five other families. We enjoyed camping on the lake with a small beach within walking distance. The kids enjoyed the water, kayaking, and riding their bikes around the campground. The sites are spacious, with plenty of room and trees between them. The sites are gravel and have a large pad with light post, fire ring/grill, and picnic table. The sites were clear of debris when we arrived. Water and electric we easily accessible. Trash cans were located every few sites and emptied twice each day. The roads through all three loops were well paved and a boat launch is available near the campground. The bath house was close to our sites and well lit. They were cleaned daily, but got messy toward the evening with heavy use. The showers were warm, with a push button access. We enjoyed our stay at Cross Winds and will return. It was convenient, clean, and fun for the entire family. - dmaerz

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

Upon arrival at Poplar Point, we were greeted by an unfriendly park ranger (we'll get to this later). We didn't make a reservation and were able to find a reasonable site for us and another family in a TT. We ended up in sites E15 and E16. These two sites are on a semi-level location, with an abundance of shade. There is a nice pond located at the rear the site which was a bonus. The issue I had was site E-15 was inaccessible when accessing in the one-way direction of travel. Instead we had to enter the loop in the wrong direction to be able to back in. The table, fire-pit and lantern hook were functional and clean. The one issue that remained constant was the white forest service truck would fly through the campground (we had a 5 and 11 year old) without regard for people or kids on bikes. We never met the camp host, so I cannot comment on them, and we used our facilities. The pond had a few bass and crappie in it, which was fun for catch and release. The dump station was accessible with the 37' 5th wheel, but had such a grade to it that when I got home I still had 1/3 of a tank of black water. Overall, it was a good experience, with the exception of the closed hours 9PM-8AM..... - NCN8_5th_Wheel_Retiree

I stayed in Loop E which is a no reservation loop. My site was on the lake. Very large site. Small litter in the site. Fire ring cleaned out. Bathroom was out of service the entire week. No showers available in loop E.
No discounts available. - srn

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

This was our first time camping at a NC state park and we chose a good one. The sites in Holly Point Loop 3 are all large and well spaced apart with lots of natural vegetation between them for privacy and the feeling of really being in the woods. Roads were good and our site was level although the restrooms could use updating but were clean. Staff was friendly and check in was easy. There is a swim beach a short walk away with a boat ramp,restrooms and changing rooms. - 21fbrs

On the water, able to walk down a small slope right on our site to launch a kayak and one could fish if they chose to. So peaceful, though not far from the beach or bathhouse. Well lit paved paths to the bathhouse. Oh, and trash pickup from cans provided next to the site on the road. Very, very nice helpful staff from the maintenance workers to the rangers as well as the campground hosts. We will be returning next year for sure, if only it was a little closer (we live in MD). Lot spacing is spacious with some shade. Site surface was dirt and features a fire ring and picnic table. - CamperSue
