11 RV Parks near Mebane, North Carolina

This has become a very busy place. We've been coming here about once a year since it opened. They recently added 20 more sites for a total 56 sites. No pool, small playground, nicely spaced sites in older section with landscaping. WiFi good, but drops. Lady running the place was nice but frazzled when we arrived on a Monday late morning asking for a spot. Luckily, someone pulled out of a nice long pull through just as we were trying to find a spot. - cincychic

One of the nicest campgrounds we have visited. Grounds and staff were wonderful. Sites long and private with good hook ups. Our only regret was not staying here longer. - User1308

This is a fairly new park in a nice rural location near Mebane, NC. They have a mix of back-in and pull-through full hookup sites. There are several sites that can handle long rigs. The roads and sites are all gravel with minor grades in some sites. There are lots of trees in and around the park. The park-provided wifi varied from slow to good. There was a fair Verizon cell signal available. The staff was very friendly and helpful. - VikingVagabonds

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

This place was a mobile home park three years ago and it appears to be slowly moving toward more and more RV spots. The pull through spots were really long.....could of parked three of my 45' MH in the one we were in. Lots of trees, squirrels, and friendly folks. We found this park very convenient to Chapel Hill.....the center for all higher education. No pool, picnic tables or any of that kind of thing but great spots and a very helpful pair of camp hosts in Valerie and Jerry. Felt a little tight maneuvering to the spot but was no problem in reality. We will go back. - SHIPM8

I stopped at this park just for an overnight on my way somewhere else. The hosts were very nice, and waiting for me when I got there... They even had a dog biscuit for my dog. They were very helpful with directions and recommendation for pizza if I wanted to order some. The host took me to my site and then got out to help me find the "sweet spot" so that I didn't have to do much leveling. He got out his level and had me pull forward and back up just a little etc. etc. so that it ended up that I didn't need to level at all. It did have full hook up but I didn't use the sewer because I didn't really need it for 1 night. The electric worked great. The water was a little inconvenient. It's built into a hole in the ground so it was awkward to hook up. I had to get on my hands and knees in wet leaves in order to hook up the water. As others have said it's really an old trailer park and there are a lot of stationary mobile homes that have not been kept in very good condition. Overall it was fine for a one night stay but I don't think it is a good place to go camping for a week. The pizza was very good from the place that they recommended, which I forget the name of now but I'm sure they could tell you if you went there. - Donna In GR

This is a very old mobile home park that they are now calling a RV park. There are trees throughout the park and it was grown up and no grass in the park. The road did not loop around and was gravel and narrow only wide enough for one vehicle. Many of the mobile homes looked really old and with no sun and they were covered in mildew and pine needles. Overall this is a depressing place. Our site had pine needles all over and there seemed to be no maintenance. No cable but our antennae worked fine and the Wifi worked as we were near the tower. Doubt we would ever return here. - P-T retired

We stay here at least twice a year while visiting family in Durham. It's an average NC state park. Big sites with water and electric - loops A and B. Loop C no hookups. Bathhouses could use a good scrubbing. Lake was flooded and beach was closed while we were here this trip. Sites are gravel and some uneven. Most sites are heavily wooded. Big Rigs beware - turn around in loop A is tight. Watch out for ticks! - cincychic

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

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

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

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

Rate reflects a double site that we selected. Nice wooded campground with spaces nicely separated. - VikingVagabonds

We stay here with a group of families most Easter weekends. This year we shared a double site with some close friends. When we arrived, we were greeted at the gate by a friendly staff member who signed us in and offered materials if we needed them. The roads into the campsite were well maintained and easily navigated. The site was clear of debris and clean. When we went to hook up our water, the spigot was turned off. We notified the staff and they had someone come out and turn it on for us. The fire pit was clean and we had two picnic tables on a large picnic pad. The back of our site went down a hill to a cove off the main lake, giving us a place to put in our kayaks. The restrooms were clean and the showers hot. The Campground host cleaned them several times throughout the day. The rangers patrolled the campground throughout the weekend and monitored campers. It was completed full on all three loops, yet it was relatively quiet. We enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning next year. - dmaerz

We have stayed here twice and enjoyed the park both times, once in summer and most recently this winter. The park has boating, hiking, fishing and lake swimming, and is an easy 30+ minute drive to many activities in the Chapel Hill and Raleigh areas. Closer in, Fearrington Village offers several great restaurants and upscale shopping. The sites are large and most offer nice privacy. There are also buddie sites for those travelling with other campers. The water (in spring thru fall) and electric hookups worked well and the site was nicely paved and included a large outdoor living area with picnic table, fire pit, and lantern hook. Our site backed very near to the shore and had beautiful views of the lake and sunset. In the summer most sites appear to be well shaded. Only electric is available in the winter months but water can be obtained at the dump or at the rest room locations. This is a great location to either kick back on a beautiful site and just relax or to see all the attractions that the nearby area has to offer. We will stay here again. - WOLFTRACKS

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

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
