Cedar Point Campground, Cedar Point, North Carolina

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

* Price includes $7 for electric and $3 for reservation fee. * Another great National Forest campsite. All sites are paved; minimal leveling required. Lots of trees and shade -- plenty of room for the hamock and screenhouse. No individual water at sites, but potable water available at the dump station. Hosts were visible and attentive. Bathhouse was clean with large, individual showers. Mostly TTs and big rigs -- only saw 2 tents. Hiking trails and boat ramp located 0.5 miles away, within the park. There is a marine airfield nearby, so you will hear planes and "booms" occassionally. Would have given this one a "10" if it had water hookups. We camped at Cedar Point Campground in a Tent Trailer.

Grindstone Campground, Sugar Grove, Virginia

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

Cut off -- and loved it! If you need to continually check your email and Facebook, this is *not* the place for you. There is *no* cell coverage (voice or data) available in the park. You'll need to drive 5-10 miles out, in order to get a signal. Sites are all back-in and most will need (at least) minimal leveling. As other reviews point out, the Groundhog Den loop is closest to the road, but it is a mountain road with minimal traffic -- we never noticed. Sites are all heavily wooded -- lots of choices for hanging the hammock. Sites have electric (30amp) and water with good pressure. Bath houses (2 per loop) are small and dated, but were clean an functional. Camp hosts were highly visible throughout our stay. There's a play area and wading pool and 2 hiking trails in in the campground. We camped over the 4th of July holiday and temperatures were 10-15F cooler than in Damascass -- we never used the A/C. We stayed in Grindstone primarily for the VA Creeper Trail. * Price includes $3 online reservation fee. We camped at Grindstone Campground in a Tent Trailer.

We used the Shuttle Shack in Damascus for the shuttle ride to Whitetop to ride the VA Creeper Trail -- highly recommended.

Falls Lake SRA / Holly Point Campground, Wake Forest, North Carolina

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

* Price incldues $3 online reservation charge and $5 water-front surcharge Another gorgeous NC State Park...all spots are heavily wooded. Our spot (#75) had a fairly steep slope, but a great view of the lake. Elec & water avaialable -- no issues. Rangers drove through several times a day and trash emptied twice a day. Restrooms were dated (too bad NC isn't willing to use its budget surplus) but servicable. Only 4 showers (male and female, each) for the entire loop, so you may have to wait if it gets busy. Two swim "beaches" availble within the campground and a hiking trail that connects all loops. We camped at Falls Lake SRA / Holly Point Campground in a Tent Trailer.

Holiday Trav-L-Park Resort , Emerald Isle, North Carolina

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $108.00
Overall Rating:      

If you want to be as close to the beach as possible, this is the place. We camped over the weekend in June and it was packed. I'm sure it stays 100% full through the summer. A typical resort-type park with lots of on-site amenities (pool, arcade, clubhouse area, etc). Very kid- and pet-friendly. No fire rings provided (in fact, no open fires allowed unless in a fire pit 2+ feet from the ground), so this was our first-ever trip without s'mores. :(

But, there were three private access entrances to the beach, each with water/hoses to showers off the sand. (But it didn't really help. Our trailer was full of sand by the time we left, but the beach was well worth it!) Hopefully your neighbors will be nice, because you'll be seeing a lot of them, as the sites are right on top of each other. Overall, a nice way to spend time at the beach. We camped at Holiday Trav-L-Park Resort in a Tent Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

The Crystal Coast has some of the nicest beaches in NC.

Be advised though: many folks trek to the beach first-thing in the morning (prior to 7am) to "stake out" space.

Jordan Lake SRA / Crosswinds Campground, Apex, North Carolina

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $23.00
Overall Rating:      

A great state park. Many sites have direct water frontage. All sites on loop C have power & water. Spots were well shaded and backed to dense woods (making it tough to find perfect trees to hang the hamocks!). The bath house is dated, but adequate. Hot water for the showers was spotty (some stalls seemed better than others). Also, the showers use a push-button activation. Each push gives you about 1.5 minutes of water. No way to adjust water temperature. Camp hosts and rangers were highly visible and made frequent dries through the campground. Normally, gates are locked from sun-down to sun-up, but they were left open 24-hours during the Memorial Day weekend. Two convenience stores with gas stations located about 1 mile away. A full grocery store and shopping center located about 10 miles away in Apex. We camped at Jordan Lake SRA / Crosswinds Campground in a Tent Trailer.

There's a private boat ramp (for campers only). There's also a sand beach (also, campers only) on Loop B. An each 1.5 mile trail (each way) connects all 3 camping loops and the boat ramp.

Kerr Lake SRA - Satterwhite Point/J. C. Cooper Campground, Henderson, North Carolina

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $27.00
Overall Rating:      

Rate included $3.00 online reservation service fee. Nearly all spots have views of the lake, about half are on the lake. Our spot was a huge pull through (more than enough for 18' HTT and truck), but required leveling blocks. Water and electric were less than 25' (although some sites require 50' or more). Only one (short, 0.75 mile) hiking trail. The marina (private) is nearby, and there are lots of playgrounds for kids and a beach swimming area. We camped at Kerr Lake SRA - Satterwhite Point/J. C. Cooper Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Sycamore Lodge, Jackson Springs, North Carolina

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $1.00
Overall Rating:      

We took their sales tour earlier and received "21 free nights of camping." Note that the 21 days is really three 7-day trips. The facility is very nice. A nice lake/pond with canoes. The clubhouse has games and there was a bonfire & band on Saturday night. They seem to have lots of activities (very kid-friendly). Our spot was water/electric only. There are multiple dump facilities on site. Spots are close to each other (luckily our neighbors were friendly) and only minimal/slight shade and tree cover. Bathrooms were spotless, each with their own shower. We camped at Sycamore Lodge in a Tent Trailer.

Neuseway Nature Park, Kinston, North Carolina

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $15.00
Overall Rating:      

Great county park on the banks of the Neuse. Half of the spots have fantastic river views. Some spots offer shade, others were open. About half of the sites had sewer. Also a dump station on site. The nature center and planetarium were closed due to recent Hurricane Matthew. Bath house was small -- only one men's room and one women's (both with their private shower). Great park for kids, as well as a kidde train ride ($). No hiking trails, but easy to walk along river bank. Close to Kinston activities (such as CSS Neuse), restaurants, and shopping. We camped at Neuseway Nature Park in a Travel Trailer.
