5 RV Parks near Harkers Island, North Carolina
Jul 2018 - $75.00
This is a beautiful RV park. The owners are local & very hands-on with every aspect of managing the park. Sites are full hook-up. The pool area & laundry are a kept very clean. The roads are all paved. There is a marina with slips & a boat storage area. There is a small, clean, sandy beach area on the sound. There is a long fishing pier with a well maintained cleaning area. The park has a very clean & enclosed dog park area. It located a short distance to the Cape Lookout Ferry. There is a star & two small, very good restaurants also close by & quickly reached by golf cart or bikes. Being from North Carolina, we were very excited to stay so close to the National Seashore at Cape Lookout. The park is very quiet & has a large group of permanent sites that are very well maintained by the owners. Unlike some RV parks in the area, the owners have a fairly strict code that permanent site leasers follow which makes this park definitely stand out in appearance & cleanliness. We enjoyed our stay & elected to lease a permanent site. - WolfPackMom

Primarily for permanent weekenders with boats. Way overpriced. Not a good selection for overnighters. - sparco

This is a fabulous location, right on the water, with beautiful views. and the new facility is really very nice - just opened with new fencing, pool, facilities. And the folks were very friendly. Harkers Island is pretty far off the beaten path ... not congested, not touristy, nice quiet roads for bike riding. My criticism is that this RV park is not yet oriented toward transient visitors .... it is really set up for seasonal use and permanent structures like park models. Our "campsite" was hard ground - grass/sand with a significant amount of broken glass mixed in ...maybe construction debris? There was a crushed rock pad for parking the car, but the RV parking area was completely undeveloped. The sites were not angled and it was hard to maneuver around workers vehicles, transformers, adjacent park models, etc. No picnic tables, no trash pickup, no wifi, the cable did not work, no paperwork of any kind. Again ....it was lovely and would be great for a longer stay, but really not set up for transients. And the price of $75 was too high for value received. - MerBee

This place is basically a fish camp, and spot to stop for the Ocracoke Ferry. Lots of permanents. All it offers is a place to stop. Dogs running, muddy. - User3119

This is a place to overnight before taking the Cedar Island Ferry to Cape Hatteras, or if you're a fanatic fisherman. It is not a resort: the pool is closed permanently and any other amenities that may have existed in the past (batting cage, etc.) are no longer in service. About half of the park is occupied seasonally/permanently by older units apparently used by weekend fishers. It has a boat launch and dockside gasoline ($3.30/gal in April 2016). Mosquito season was well underway at the end of April with spraying by the county predicted to happen soon. The owners are a charming and helpful couple who have lived on the site for 40 years. Reservations are highly recommended for the Cedar Island Ferry as is arrival an hour or so before departure. Reservations are cancelled 30 minutes before departure. Our trip at 10:30 a.m. on a Sunday morning was full. Loading a 40' motorhome with toad attached cost $45 but was no problem with crew guidance. The trip from the RV park was only 8 miles but took a half hour so allow enough time. - Mtmoi

When we arrived at the park we received a very warm welcome and the owner was very accommodating. The park seemed to be well maintained and the pool was very clean. It is a great place to stay if you have a boat or Kayak. The RV sites at this park are level but a little small. There are no 50 amp sites. We picked up 6 or 7 TV channels via antenna. About half of the park is made up of seasonal residents who couldn't have been friendlier. We will be back. - pillaz

Waters Edge is an attractive park with carefully groomed landscaping and generous, large, sites. Most are shaded. All are quiet. It is also a good place to stay if you want to be incommunicado. The only WiFi is at the office, which is along the very noisy highway and about 200 ft. from the closest site. Some sources claim the park has WiFi - a gross exaggeration. Also, since it is in a low spot, cell service is almost nil. My RepublicWireless phone (uses T-Mobile ?), my wife's TracFone (uses AT&T ?), and my SkyRoam hot spot could not communicate. The person who checked us in stated her Verizon service was unreliable in the park also. - JackSchmotzer

Not far from the Sound. Sites need work. Many campers appear seasonal, but most are well maintained. Low water pressure. Not all sites are 50 amp. We got good satellite reception. No wifi. Shorter RVs and 5th wheels will do OK, but not for most big rigs. - leciel19

This is a very nice, clean, and very quiet campground, which was exactly what we were looking for as we visited the Atlantic Beach area. The park has mostly seasonal/long term folks, but there are plenty of overnight type spaces this time of year.
If you're looking for a pool and a playground and nightly activities this is not your campground, but if you want a beautiful setting with access to a fishing pier where you can watch the sunrise or sunset I highly recommend this campground. There is no WiFi other than the hotspot at the office and I couldn't pick that up even with my booster, so we relied on our Verizon cell service and data plan which worked well. The other campgrounds in the area were higher priced and did advertise WiFi, but for the low rates at this park we figured we could use our data plan and even if we went over we would still be money ahead.
When we checked in we were given a bag of candy and a pen. That was a nice touch that we haven't received anywhere else.
There are no laundry facilities or cable TV. We were able to get over the air channels but couldn't get CBS. - Maraywil

This park is an OK park for an Encore park. It has about 90% full time people living here. They put us in a back-in site along the main road which was fairly level once we got into it. FHU; water quality was good as was the electric. They have cable TV and with cell towers across the street, Verizon coverage is excellent. They have a good size dog park; nice playground; pool. Staff friendly and helpful. There is a little pond with bridges going over it. Going out the back gate takes you to another quiet street where I was able to walk. They have a boat dock somewhere if you want to bring your boat. - Kerch Family

We had a free week from Thousand Trails which is the only reason we ended up in this park. Park is a trailer park - not an RV resort. When you enter the park there are mobile homes that have been abandoned with the skirting kicked in and windows broken out. The interior is somewhat better but mostly permanent trailers and a few RV spots. ANTS are a terrible problem as others have mentioned - both fire ants on the site and small black that enter your RV. Requested treatment of the fire ants the first day we were here, but apparently their ANDRO expired cause it did nothing to control them. Then there is the issue of cats running loose and pooping on sites and not covering. Office said I was the first person to complain about the cats so it is apparently accepted here as her comment was "yes we do have cats"! So many nicer parks to stay at - steer clear. - Gomoho

Park is mainly for seasonal people and full timers. They have a set amount for others. We needed one night only. Have to make a reservation if coming after 4 when office closes. Office lady very nice. Nice pool area and pond. Had nice and clean laundromat and showers/restroom. Fine for one night but overpriced for sure. Big rigs no problem. Park very quite due to time of year. - Paige Taylor

A great place to stay while visiting the Havelock area. The park is several years old, but everything is still like new. The Wi-Fi worked excellent despite the park being filled to capacity. - BounderPounder

Of the nine famcamps we have stayed in (so far) this was the best. Very well maintained, clean, quiet and well laid out. Paved roads (blacktop) and large concrete sites (pull thru and back in). Would definitely stay there again. - Ron N Janice

This park was already great. Now they have someone in the office 5 days a week during normal business hours. No more leaving messages and playing phone tag to get a reservation. All the services (W/S/E/Wi-Fi) work very well. We would stay here again and will continue to do so when visiting the eastern North Carolina area. - BounderPounder
