Welcome to iRV2, garyvf! The NC state park system has two campgrounds on Jordan lake, Crosswinds and Poplar Point. Crosswinds is about 15 miles from Chapel Hill. They have an online reservation system. Here's a link to a page with directions and the reservation system:

N.C. Division of Parks and Recreation: Jordan Lake State Recreation Area - Maps and Directions

At least some sites have water and 30A electric. All have a 14 day limit. We have not personally camped at either campground, but have camped at other NC campgrounds at Falls Lake, they have large, wooded sites, good bathhouses, boat ramps and swimming areas, etc.

I stayed at Falls Lake this summer while on a business trip in Durham. Plenty of large sites to choose from with 30amp connections. Campground is about 22 miles from center of Chapel Hill.

Make sure you get a Chicken Cheddar Biscuit at the Time Out Cafe in Chapel Hill!

Spring Hill is absolutely, positively the way to go. Jordan Lake is nice, but the 8pm gate is a real inconvenience for us.

The owner and manager at Spring Hill are about the nicest and most helpful folks I've ever met, and the park itself is very nice: big, shady sites, wifi that works, cable that works, but probably too many trees for Sat TV.

We have stayed at Spring Hill, very nice, close to Chapel Hill. Safe, quiet area. I agree with Diamond Dan, the owner and managers are just the best!
