B. Everett Jordan Dam and Lake is one of the Research Triangle Region’s largest open green spaces. The Jordan Lake Project conserves 46,768 acres in the midst of an expanding urban area. Of this total, 13,900 acres have been flooded to form the lake and 32,868 acres are being managed for recreation and wildlife management.

Jordan Lake has become a major attraction for recreation seekers and a number of facilities have been developed to meet their needs. These include campsites, picnic areas, beaches, boat launching ramps, a marina, and nature trails.

Recreation facilities are provided by the North Carolina Division of Parks and Recreation, North Carolina Division of Forest Resources, North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

The Visitor Assistance Center has much to offer, including a classroom/meeting space and interpretive displays in our lobby.

Yes: Pets are permitted in all state parks, as long as:

They are on an attended leash of no longer than 6 feet.
They are under the constant control of the owner.
They are on pedestrian trails only.

Pet owners who do not have their pets on a leash will receive a fine. Owners may be asked to remove dangerous or noisy pets from the state park.

Pet owners must pick up after their pets. Pet waste is not fertilizer and should not be left on the ground. It is toxic and harmful to plants and other animals in the state park. Pet waste can also transmit disease and puts other state park visitors at risk. Properly dispose of pet waste in garbage bins. Do not throw waste bags in the woods or leave them on the ground.

Pets are not permitted off-trail. Many rare plants live on thin soils and wet rocks and are vulnerable to climbing, trampling, and scraping. Visitors with pets should yield to all other trail users, including bicyclists and equestrians, when possible.

Pets are allowed in most state park campgrounds. Overnight, pets must be confined to the owner’s tent or vehicle during quiet hours. Pets are not permitted in cabins. Pets are not allowed in the bathhouses or swimming areas. Pets are strictly prohibited from entering any building, with the exception of service animals and authorized search and rescue dogs.

Possession or consumption of alcoholic beverages is prohibited, except in designated areas.

Visitors shall not be or become intoxicated while within any state park or recreation area.
