As Hurricane Florence approached North Carolina, I looked for a quiet retreat to evacuate to. Sight unseen I chose Lake Harmony RV Park and I could not have made a better choice. From my initial phone conversation to departing thanking, in all of my years camping, I have never found a friendlier, more accommodating, supportive and professional staff. The park is very quiet and peaceful though less than a mile from I-95, resplendent on a small lake with plenty of shade trees, Spanish moss and just a wonderful setting. The park is gated with well maintained, hard packed gravel roads throughout offering easy access. Our beautiful site (#51) was level on hard packed sand overlooking the lake with first rate full hook-ups along with a fire ring, picnic table, Wi-Fi and cable. Bath and laundry facilities were immaculate. A "mock" shrimp boat is the park's office and offers ice, boat rentals and a few necessities as well as information on local tourist attractions. One can fish and swim in the lake. This definitely is a first class facility but what sets it apart is the great staff that made ourselves and other evacuees welcome and cared for. Easy to find off Rt. 57, the Lake Harmony RV Park sign stands out as well as their slogan "a place you'll come back to". I know we will as well as our six new evacuee friends. We camped at Lake Harmony RV Park in a Motorhome.
Visit Darien for shrimp boats, historic sites and friendly small town feel.

This campground has the potential to be excellent but not quite there. Yes it has great amenities and activities for kids, a beautiful setting, dock for fishing and a friendly staff but the infrastructure is average to weak. Gravel roads have pot holes, severe puddling and lack drainage in places. Our sewer hookup was extremely high and cable connector stripped off. It is obvious a work (construction/grading) is being done to correct these problems and once completed will move park to next level. Price for off season patio site was high ($65 average - 3 nights) given problems. Very convenient to Jamestown and Gloucester historic sites. We camped in a 27" motor home towing and did have plenty of room for maneuvering. Campground has a mix of permanent, seasonal and transient campers. Would highly recommend for families with kids but it is one of those places you have mixed feelings about if travelling as adults. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone at Gloucester Point in a Motorhome.
Excellent Italian Restaurant "Tony and Milena's" close by on RT. 17, don't let sign saying "Pizzeria" fool you, they have authentic and delicious Sicilian dishes.

Park is located off busy and commercial Rt. 17 but proved to be a pleasant oasis of quiet, wooded and level sites along the Neuse River. Staff was super friendly and knowledgeable. Uncrowded in September with a nice clean pool, well maintained grounds and beautiful views of sunsets along river from campground's pier. Stayed in a spacious patio site with shade along wetlands/river perimeter. All hook-ups were fine with excellent cable and Wifi as was our Verizon cell service . Short five minute trip to historical downtown New Bern by car. We camped at New Bern KOA in a Motorhome.
Take advantage of campground's very reasonable offerings ranging from mini-golf to rental kayaks.

As in past, we used this campground as an overnight stop over before heading north through New York to New England for which it is perfect. Was undergoing upgrades and adding new sites but roads are very tight and not the easiest to maneuver through. Likewise given the tight space of our site, we were not able to use our slide outs and awning. Staff is always friendly and helpful. We camped at Philadelphia South / Clarksboro KOA in a Motorhome.
