Weather was beautiful, so we took a fall Sunday drive to Jordan Lake. LOVED IT. While it was quiet for our visit, it made us want to come back, use the beach, swim and enjoy some grilling...all available on the grounds. A great family spot for some outdoor recreation.

We went on a Saturday afternoon around 3.00p.m, no idea of fishing or boating.we thought of a small picnic in one of the picnic areas with a small children's playground and a small swimming area! Nice weather and clean place! My 4 yr old daughter was having real fun in the water and later at the playground! Nice choice if you want to just go kayaking or relax with your family and friends! Would definitely go here very often! Such a relaxing place!

We have camped here and were very pleased with the facilities. My wife went here several times over the summer with the kids to swim and play with friends. They always have a great time. I have been here for some picnics and the pavilions are nice as well. This is a great place to spend a beautiful day.

This is an amazing place to take your family or friends for a real camping adventure. The lake is amazing and the small beaches are fun as well. I enjoy taking a day trip to get away or go camping over the weekend.

There are free spots around lake Jordan that are more fun. I don't like spending the cash but I apprecaite how they keep it up so well...it's a catch 22. If I were swimming and didnt' have a boat, I'd pay the price but usually it's just my dog swimming.
