Jordan Lake

Pittsboro, NC


Jordan Lake State Recreation Area is a collective of nine access areas scattered around the shoreline of this undeveloped, 14,000-acre reservoir. More than 1,000 campsites among five of the access areas offer a range of outdoor experience from RV hookups to primitive tent camping and group camps.

WakeRack Locker Location

how it works

Pick-up and drop off your rental at the Jordan Lake WakeRack lockers outside the Valero Gas Station. The access code to retrieve your paddle board or kayak is provided in an email one hour before your reservation.

Each rental includes everything you need in a duffel bag, even the life jacket!


There are seven swim beaches in the recreation area and a number of boating ramps, with some swim areas and ramps reserved for campers. Nearly 14 miles of hiking trails wind across the hilly lakeshore, with most of them offering easy, brief hikes perfect for family outings. Spotting bald eagles and osprey is just one of many opportunities to view wildlife, and the lake’s ecology is further explored in the visitor center exhibit hall.
