As others have said, it is mostly residents living in 5th wheels or park models and there are just a few transient daily sites. The rental sites are waterfront. Manager allowed us to pull forward so the view was put our front window. We then ran the utilities under the coach. By pulling ad far forward without having tires on the grass, the utilities were about 6 feet from our door, so we didn't have the sewer right when we stepped outside. Sites are a little close, but not right on top of each other. At first water had slight sulphur smell, but after running for a bit, it went away. Probably because this site hadn't been used during off season. We were able to receive DISH with Tailgater on the picnic table. Verizon worked great. - Dream Chasers

This is a no frills RV park. We never saw or met anyone that works there. We only spoke on the phone to make the reservation. There is road noise from Hwy 345 but it's not terrible. The park is mostly long term with 14 sites for daily rental. Some of the long term sites were a bit neglected but overall not too bad. All 14 daily sites back up to a pond and are all back-in. Sites are gravel/sand. There is a small strip of "grass" between sites and no privacy. They are pretty insistent that you don't park on the grass - as sparse as it is. We along with other visitors had to park our tow vehicles sideways (avoiding the grass of course) to fit in the spot. Sites are in the open and there is no shade. The WII FI works ok but slows down considerably at times. Luckily, there is no password as we received no information on the park - we had to hunt for a trash bin. Directv worked fine. Verizon was strong at 4g 4/5 bars. Pretty pricey for what you get even in the off season. We might return again but only because the park is close to family. - Free

We stayed her for three nights so did not get the discount for staying four nights. As mentioned earlier, the manager...not rude but at first is a bit standoffish. Once he starts talking with you, super friendly and helpful...actually won't stop talking. Only a handful of sites for non-permanents which were right along the water. Very pretty. Lots of board walks to look at the water and scenery. Only a few miles from Outer Banks. We did the Lost Colony National Park on the island and on the Outer Banks did Wright Brothers National Park and the Cape Hatteras National Seashore. We went to Coquina beach and were very happy. No charge to park or to use the beach. Would stay here again. - aka4170

Nice view of the sound and parklike feel. Immediate surrounding area is not the best, but the park is clean and feels safe. Close to Wright Brothers memorial and short drive to Duck. We drove by other RV parks that didn't look as nice (i.e., longer-term residents). This place is mostly short-term RVers. Laundry room could use an update and more machines. I'd probably stay here again. - Millermw

Very well kept campground with a wonderful view. Site was level and electricity was solid. Water pressure was also good. Very friendly and helpful staff - D-Miller

A nice place - they are bringing electricity (20-30-50 amp) & water to the sites. We had one of them & it was nice to run the AC. A bit of a walk to the ocean but not too bad. It was a nice beach! The showers were acceptable but no heating past solar. Back in site. We fit with a big overhang in the back. With our dolly pushed up under the front of the 30' Class C we had room to park the Toyota Camry in front. There were no fires allowed. We'd stay there again. - becida

Narrow roads, could be tight when the campground is full. Only a handful of campers when we were here, since we're early in the season. Great location for exploring north to Corolla and Carova Beach, and south to catch the ferry to Ocracoke. No trees, just sand dunes and sea grass! We didn't hear road noise but we had 25-35 mph winds that drowned out everything else. - Roaming Together

This is CG is part of the National Park system in Cape Hatteras National Seashore. The roads and sites are asphalt. The sites pavement is just wide enough for the RV and some sites will probably fit a 45' MH but you'll have to make other accommodations for your towed vehicle. We stayed here in late November and just parked in an empty site across from our site. The showers are built more with the beach goer in mind with no real convenient place to hang your cloths without getting them wet from the shower. I was expecting cold water but it was comfortably warm with so so pressure. Our site was a short walk over and through some dunes to the beach. If you come here during the summer it is recommended you bring a shade/bug shelter and be prepared for hot sticky weather. There is no shade at all and there's a reason why the Wright Brothers choose this area for flight testing, the wind. It will blow pretty much every day and if you are gong to stake something down make sure you have long stakes 12" or longer would be great. Besides the beach there's several lighthouses in the area and a few miles away is the site of the "Lost Colony" and a nice N.P. museum there. Verizion phone and Mifi worked reasonably well. We'd stay here again if we're in the area. - pumper9x9

The man that checked us in was very helpful and friendly. The sites are extremely close together. There is hardly any room to sit outside of your site without sitting under your neighbor's slide. At least it was cold when we were there and didn't spend a lot of time outside anyway. The majority of the park looks like fulltime residents, with only a few campsites available for others. The location is great for visiting the Kitty Hawk area, I just wish they would give you some more room at the campsites. Verizon and AT&T worked well. - Love2Camp777

Staff really was over the top helpful with getting me set up an making sure we were taken care of. We actually extended our stay at a whim and he ensured we were good to go. We will be back. - Keith Goins

I gave it a rating of 4 because of the lack of bathrooms and the postage sized sites, but we were right next to the beach! When I say postage sized sites, I mean our camper barely fit with the slides out. The neighbors parked their car in front of my picnic table because they didn't have room, so I had to partially block the next site over with my truck. The caretaker is extremely nice, (helps you back in the camper and makes sure you have everything you need). We were on site #3, and were literally 100 yds from the beach. Cross Rt12, and you're there. We went down for my friend's wedding in Duck, 8 miles North, and pretty much only slept at the camper. I had never been to the Outer Banks before and enjoyed the stay. If it weren't for the beach being so close, I would have not liked it. I do have to say that it is a very quiet and very clean campground. It was nice walking the beach on your way back to the camper to help digest. The surf was up, and playing in the waves is always fun. The beach is dog friendly, and they had a blast too... Just clean up after them, PLEASE. If all you want is a place to sleep, then this is the place to go!
Lastly, bring Windex and extra paper towels... You will need them to clean the salt off your windows and mirrors when you leave. Yes, we were that close to the beach... - Bob Mac

We stayed in site #4, which is one of the water/electric sites right on Pamlico Sound. Very level, and the view was incredible. All the sites were very small and tightly spaced, with zero privacy, which is pretty standard for such prime waterfront real estate (and typical of popular beach destinations, in general). Since the sites were so small, this place was really geared more toward tent campers and those with shorter RVs (25' or less, I'd say). Each site had a picnic table, and most had a fire pit, which is pretty rare in this area (many CGs ban ground fires due to frequent high winds). Bath house was OK. Cleanliness was so-so, depending on the day, but the biggest issue was it was not air-conditioned, so using the restroom was generally a pretty muggy and unpleasant experience. However, the amazing outdoor showers made up for it. They were huge, with great water pressure, and felt great after a long, hot day in the sun. Unfortunately, there was often trash or toiletries left behind from other guests in the showers, but there was so much room and ledge space that it was easy to avoid and didn't bother me. Generally speaking, the bath houses and grounds could stand a little more regular cleaning and maintenance, but since the owners run a water sport rental business from the property, it's obvious that's their main focus. Once checked in, it seems campers are left to their own devices until/unless they want to rent some equipment, because the owners and staff spent all day at the rental booth. I didn't find this to be a problem at all; I just mention this to advise other campers to expect a more hands-off management approach, at least on the camping side. Overall, this is a really neat little campground on the sound, and the prices are great for the area. If you can deal with the tight spacing, minimal upkeep, and lack of big-resort amenities, this is a great, cost-effective option in a gorgeous setting! - Jenventola

This is a gem but for smaller sized units. You are right on the bay and the spot backs to it. There is power and water but the sites are a bit tight but I got in with no issues. The staff are incredibly helpful, attentive and polite. In fact they called us to see if we would be there before they closed and if not told us they put a reserved cone up for us. There is no sewer at this campground but we knew that going in. If it was here I doubt there would be many openings for anyone. There are a lot of tents that don't need sewer and the bath house is clean and nice. - John S.

In one word: wonderful! This place is great! I don't remember exactly what we spent per night but whatever it was it was well worth it! First of all, as a woman camping alone with her son, we felt very safe. The staff and campers were so friendly. The campground is very small but wonderfully located. It is on the sound-side which was great for my 10 year-old son. He could walk for several hundred feet in the water and it never went above his waist. The beach is across the street and within a few minutes walk. Also within walking distance is a great pizza/sandwich place, Lisa's Pizza, as well as a few convenience stores. It's also a short drive from the Wright Brothers memorial and the Lost Colony of Roanoke. There is even an outdoor shower (with walls) which was great on the cool evenings. We will definitely stay here again! - Melissa B.
