Cedar Island RV Park (formerly Driftwood Motel Restaurant & Campground, Cedar Island, North Carolina

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

Unless you plan on catching an early morning ferry to Ocracoke Island there is not much reason to stay in this park. Yes, the location is nice (beach and marsh views) with access to horseback riding and kayak rentals. Unfortunately, the state of the campground leaves much to be desired. After checking in at Sharkys we were told that we would not be able to make the turn in the park to get to our assigned site #56 (premium with marsh view), so instead we were directed to basically drive all around the other sites but be careful to avoid certain sections that were so muddy that we might get stuck. On finally arriving to site 56 it was so rutted that I would not take a chance on getting stuck in it so I chose adjacent site #55. Sewer hookup at back of site, required extra long hose, electric pedestal and water spigots appear new. While there watched another camper trying back in a small travel trailer to site 53 and he buried his back wheels to the axle, fortunately another camper with a dually was able to get him out. The center section of the park had numerous RV's that have obviously been there for a very long time, some overrun with junk. Fortunately we arrived with a full tank of fresh water as the park water is unusable, it is brown and has a terrible odor. We certainly would not drink it. We had initially booked and paid for 5 nights up front but left after only 4 nights. We camped at Cedar Island RV Park (formerly Driftwood Motel Restaurant & Campground in a Motorhome.
