Nice, quiet cg with good management.

Nice cg with nice management. The place is well taken care of with good hookups. I tested the voltage and saw no problem (site A3). I-95 and the trains can be a little noisy but there isn't much the cg can do about that. The wife is a light sleeper so it bugged her some but I slept right thru. Access to/from I-95 is very easy and navigation within is absolutely no problem. We will use this cg as a stopping point again.

A 7 on it's way to a 10. This is an existing campground under new management that is under-going a complete renovation and expansion. All hookups are new. The sites, which climb the side of a hill, are beautifully terraced, well spaced and freshly graveled. There are still some trees that need to be removed but they are doing that slowly to prevent any unnecessary cutting to keep the shaded, wooded campground feel. The staff is very nice and extremely helpful. No cable tv. Satellite receiption will be a challenge when the trees are full of leaves. You can get local channels tho. Part of the renovation has been to put in channels across the roads to keep water away from the sites. Unfortunately, the side effect is a rather rough ride. Keep it slow and you'll be alright. We really enjoyed our stay here and will most definitely be back.

Our second time at this campground. They have made numerous improvements since last year. Everything was excellent condition. Rained like heck the whole time we were there yet the water drained off quickly. Wish more campgrounds were like this one. We'll be back!

Stayed in the Super Sites. Loved them. Very well kept and spacious. Pool near the Super Sites was nice as well. WiFi costs extra. We went without. We were not thrilled, however, to discover that they allow kids (and their parents) to zoom about the place on mini bikes. So much for the speed limit. That's a lawsuit waiting to happen IMHO. Many upgrades going on. We'll be back.

Spent our second 4th of July in a row here. Campground was full but still very quiet and peaceful. Facilities were all in good shape. Had a couple of power outages due to VERY high use. Each time the situation was quickly resolved. A number of very strong storms came thru that dumped a lot of rain in a very short period of time. The result of which was a good bit of flooding. Not the cg's fault though. They did what they could to help the campers out that had the worst problems. The Staff here was always very friendly and helpful. Security was more visible this year too. Our only complaint was the number of people not picking up after their dogs. If I were the owner of this cg I'd seriously consider banning pets.
Date of Stay: May, 2006
2nd Memorial Day weekend in a row that we have stayed here. The cg continues to be well maintained and staffed by very friendly folk. The new office/bath house is complete and is a very nice addition. Would not hesitate to go back.

Nice stop-over campground with easy access, good interior road layout, well kept hookups and nice facilities. It was no problem getting to our site in the motorhome with the Jeep in tow. The staff was nice and the office had a good selection of odds and ends. We would stop here again without hesitation.

Average campground at best. Sites are pretty close together for the most part. The place was virtually empty when we were there yet they still stuck everyone that was there on top of each other. They do have 56 cable channels but for some reason reception gets worse as the channel number increases. The last 10 or so cannot be seen. Desk Clerk must have been having a bad day. She was surly at best. The interior roads are ok but be careful. Exiting the Premium sites from row A44 - A50 means making a 180 around a big tree. I went out the wrong way on a one way to avoid that. Pool looked to be of good size (was closed of course). Game Room had a few video games, one pool table and an air hockey table. It was clean and in good condition.

We did not stay here but decided to check it out while driving thru the area. We were very impressed by how well the grounds were kept up. Interior roads are gravel but in very good shape. Roads were laid out well so big rig access is not a problem. The sites are all good sized. Most are shaded. I did not see any that looked as tho it would be difficult to get level on. The catch and release fishing pond was a bit muddy. Did not see the catfish pond. The pool was closed but looked to be of good size. The road the campground is on is a little narrow with some sharp curves that sneak up on you. If you take your time, you won't have any problems tho. Overall we really liked this place and will be back to stay.

I chose this campground from the only other review posted here. Unfortunately that poster was either affiliated with this place or has very low standards. The best that can be said about the place is that it is quiet at night. From there it goes down hill. When we arrived our site trash can was over flowing. It was never emptied while we were there. The campground itself is rough, needs a great deal of TLC and has very small sites. This is the first place I've ever been where a tent would not fit on the site it was given. The pool was mirky such that we refrained from using it. What annoyed us the most was the ATVs. You think golf carts with kids on them are bad. Try ATVs with drunk grownups zooming by your site all day. We did enjoy the ducks and geese. That's not enough to bring us back though. We'll go elsewhere.

Nice campground at the foot of Afton Mountain. Sites were spaced a little tight in the lower section but we could still put out all the slides and the awning with room to spare. We toured the upper section in the Jeep. We're very glad not to have gotten a site up there! Very steep hill to climb with tight turns. Once you are up there the sites looked a bit tight. Some would have been a challenge to level on. This area is mostly for the Class C and smaller trailers. The staff and campers were all nice. This was definitely a good base camp to tour Skyline Drive from. The WiFi worked fine at our site (#18) but we could not use the satellite dish due to trees and other obstructions. The campground does have cable with 13 channels with fair reception though. The playground equipment looked brand new. The pool was a little small and very crowed due to the HEAT! Thats was to be expected. The gameroom was fun. We'll be back.

Very nice facilities. The hookups worked well and were in good condition. The campground was having trouble with their water system. We were given a copy of a letter from the state of NC about the poor quality of their water and that it should not be drunk without boiling it first. The pressure was low too. We could see the staff working on the situation and performing tests but I don't think they had the problem solved by the time we left. The interior roads and pads are all like new. Cable has 99 channels and a good quality picture. We stayed on the Pamlico Sound side which was much calmer and quieter (which is how we like it). The new WiFi only works in the office lounge and apparently has limited connectivity. They ask you to limit your use to 15 minutes or less. This was a bit disappointing. The staff was friendly. The ocean side of the campground is gated. The sound side is not. Both sides are patrolled by campground security in golf carts. The beach was nice. Pools were a bit sandy but that can be attributed to the large number of people there for the holiday weekend. There isn't much in the campground's store but supplies can be obtained elsewhere within a very short drive. Even though this place is twice the cost of other campgrounds in the area, from what we saw of the others, it was worth it. Camp Hatteras will be our base of operations when we go back.

WONDERFUL campground, nicest bath house we've seen anywhere, mostly grass/gravel pull thru sites with most being very easy to level on. Nice pool, nice laundry facilities, no cable but the satellite reception was easy and good. Easy access to/from I64. Game room wasn't much, but adult lounge was nice, very open, and quiet. This will definitely be our base of ops whenever we go to the Williamsburg area. While in the Williamsburg area we went to the Prime Outlet...this place is NOT rv friendly!!! Very little rv parking BEHIND the place with the dumpsters. Whatever you do, don't pull in here with your TOAD attached.

Nice little campground. Very wooded. Only a few sites have enough of a southern exposure to enable the use of a dish. The cable provided (24 channels) was sufficient though. We had no problem with the access roads to the campground with our 35' motorhome. You do need to pay attention to the speed limit and caution signs on 607 from Rte 1 to the park itself. Some of the turns are a little sharp and come up on you quickly. Take your time though and you'll have no problem. Interior roads are fine. Some gravel some paved. Sites go from flat to a bit of a challenge. Staff was friendly and helpful. Even with the park completely full the park was quiet and relaxing. We had a VERY nice time. We'll definitely go back.
