Jordan Lake has four 24/7 boat ramps. They are: Farrington Point and Ebenezer Church at the northern end, Robeson Creek in middle and Poe’s Ridge at southern end.
Ebenezer is the largest with a floating dock and four ramps. It’s a state wildlife ramp.
At Farrington Point, the ramp on the left is for hand carried smaller craft (canoes, kayaks), and the one on the right for trailered boats. There are 135 parking spaces. It’s also a state wildlife-maintained ramp.
Robeson Creek is known primarily as a canoe access on the west side of lake off Hanks Chapel Road though it has boat ramps another quarter mile further up the road. It’s below the last rapids on the Haw River before it flows into Jordan. It’s a state parks-operated ramp.
Poe’s Ridge has a handicap accessible aluminum floating dock at Poe’s Ridge boat ramp and day use area at Jordan Dam. Parking fees ($5/space) are charged and are collected via automated machine via card only (no cash) starting July 6, according to Corps Facebook page. During the pandemic parking was free but that changed in June. Previously it was an honor system. It’s a Corps-operated ramp.
Public ramps at Seaforth, New Hope Overlook, Vista Point, White Oak, Parker’s Creek (for campers only, no courtesy dock) operate under state park seasonal schedule.
Crosswinds Boating Center has four ramps. Cost is $10/weekends/holidays April 15-Sep 15; otherwise $5/day. Hours follow the marina schedule.
Boaters are reminded to help stop the spread of aquatic weeds by removing all plants from boats, motors, trailers before leaving the area.
