Jordan Lake
Apex, NC

Welcome to the Freedom Boat Club of Jordan Lake:
Simple, unblemished and fresh.

Imagine relaxing in a cove, listening to the sounds of water rippling. Then, you feel a firm tug on your fishing line. It's going to be a big one! Picture the surface of the lake glistening, water spraying your face, the boat motor ahead roaring. Suddenly, your skis give way - a splash landing! Hear the laughter of children, smell burgers roasting over a charcoal fire, feel a breeze blowing through the campground. With almost 15,000 acres of water, all this and more is yours to discover at Jordan Lake.

Nature bestowed glorious gifts upon Jordan Lake, and our members can experience and enjoy them all.  In the heart of North Carolina, this 15 thousand acre man made freshwater lake is nestled between Sanford and Chapel Hill, and is also near Raleigh and Durham. But you won’t find a trace of city living on the waterfront, as no commercial or residential structures exist at Jordan Lake.

Bring your camping gear and reconnect with nature. The NC Division of Parks and Recreation operates nine recreation areas on the lake - Crosswinds Campground, Ebenezer Church, Parker's Creek, Poplar Point, Seaforth, Vista Point, Robeson Creek, New Hope Overlook, and White Oak Recreation Area. Whether you're looking for fun in the sun or an evening under the stars, Jordan Lake offers it all.

Fishing is a popular sport on the lake. Jordan Lake has become one of North Carolina's premiere fisheries. There are seven main species of game fish including largemouth bass, crappie, striper, hybrids, bream, catfish, and white perch. Underwater stumps, logs and rocks help create a very good environment. Also, there is an active fish attractor (structure) program going on. Jordan Lake offers fishing opportunities for the novice to seasoned angler. A state fishing license is required, and rules of the NC Wildlife Resources Commission must be obeyed.
