Jordan Lake Flooding

From Jordan Lake SRA website March 1—

Due to heavy rains in N.C., water levels at Jordan Lake are expected to remain high, causing severe flooding in our campgrounds. We anticipate significant maintenance challenges at our campsites, beaches, trails, boat ramps and some picnic areas following these flooding events at the recreation areas.  We appreciate your patience as staff works to clear debris and make repairs after the waters recede. This will cause a delay in opening campsites and access areas for several weeks. We hope to reopen these areas by the end of March, but will open sooner if possible.

Poplar Point Loop E has limited campsites open for camping on a first come first serve basis at this time.  We hope to open more campsites in Poplar Point Loops C & F depending on the water levels starting March 8, 2021.

At this time Ebenezer Church, Seaforth, New Hope Overlook, Robeson Creek boat ramps and canoe access are closed.
We will update our webpage as the water recedes to appropriate levels.

Also closed by flooding were NC wildlife fishing areas–Beaver Creek, Weaver Creek and Bells Church handicap-access fishing pier and Farrington Point boat ramp.

The lake level was 227.60 March 2 That’s 11+ feet above normal pool and the highest it’s been in more than a year, according to Corps of Engineers, Wilmington.

At the moment, all Jordan boat ramps were under water.
