The rate is Passport America for Sun - Thur. For this price it is a good deal. The park is mostly sites owned by people for weekend seasonal use. There are maybe 20 for passers thru. A few on the sound water front where the boats launch and then some along a bank of grass down one road. Nice staff, good location to investigate the area of bring your boat. Crowded on the weekend but really quiet during the week. The pool is well monitored and has a great water slide that is addictive. Good facilities, cable etc. For the area it seems to be a good choice. We were on our way further up the outer banks so good stop for a few days, got up and hit the ferry over to Ocracoke - great location to get the ferry - about an 1 1/2 to drive in the morning, get on the ferry and go north. Really fun experience - no trauma with the large fifth wheel. Ferry takes longer than driving around but much less back road stress and nice to be on the water. Would stay again if in the area for sure. Great local seafood in the area, good grocery stores etc. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We really enjoyed this campground and would have rated it higher if not for the weekend drunks. The rate reflects a PA discount for Sunday through Thursday. The sites are grass, fairly level with a picnic table but no shade and our site was located next to a concrete pond. We had FHUs with good power, water pressure and well located connections. They have WI-FI but it is Tengonet which means it was useless most of the time. The Verizon signal was a little weak but we were able to use our hotspot most of the time. The cable has many channels and the lack of shade would make getting a good satellite signal easy. The pool was closed while we were there but we heard it opens on Memorial Day. The resort is very quiet during the week but gets very noisy with loud music and loud voices on the weekend. The partying continued on the lower H row sites well past midnight and the other residents said this has been going on for a while. The office personnel were very friendly and told us about a few of the local attractions. We would probably stay here again if we could get a spot in a different location of the park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed in a back in site along the Bogue Sound instead of choosing a pond back in site. Most of the spaces are long term residents. Our site was grass, with park like setting all around us out to the inlet. We didn't have any WIFI available here. But the staff is extremely friendly and so are the long term residents. They have their own pier that provides a fish cleaning station. We stayed here in their off season so you talk about it being quiet and they still patrol the area. You are not far from Emerald Isle and this park is far nicer than the parks that are set on the Isle. We would come here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We loved our stay at Goose Creek. The pool was a big hit for my 4 children. We stayed on the Sound which had beautiful views. Someone warned me not to stay on the pond because it smelled, but we walked past it everyday and did not smell a thing. They had nice planned activities but our favorite was the DJ on Saturday night. He was really great and our kids loved it. The only issue that we had was the sewer hookup. There was not a fitting in the ground; you just put your sewer hose into the ground. It backup on us one day and the maintenance man (he was very pleasant and helpful) came to fix it right away. Turns out our neighbor had his hose pushed down too far. The store was very nice and they have a game room/cafe there also which was great. The kids enjoyed the playground, too. We will definitely be going back! We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Loved it! Close to the air base where we saw the air show: awesome! Close to the water way where we had great seafood. Quiet location; many long-term residents nicely landscaped. Don't care for the Tango internet service, but we had Verizon. Three schnauzers with us and we all had a nice walk around the park twice daily. We'd take an annual site here. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed in late October and the facility was very quiet although it is really busy in the summer. They do not honor Good Sam and it is cheaper to make a reservation through Encore central booking. It is a big park with mostly permanent and seasonal campers. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Overall, this campground was OK. It was a good location to visit the beaches, however that was about all. It is mainly a resort for permanent sites, howerver they do offer some overnight camping. There are not enought bathouses and they are not cleaned on a routine basis. One night they were extremely dirty. They advertise the bathrooms as having heat and a/c, however the two bathrooms we used did not have a/c. There are not enough trash dumpsters and there was trash all over the ground next to each dumpster by Sunday morning. The pool is ok, but not nearly big enough for the number of people using it and it was dirty by the end of the day. Overall, they do not have enough staff to keep this park maintained. It looks good on the outside until you start to use the facilities. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.

Stayed here as C2C, $15/night with an extra $3/night resort charge. We were the only campers in the transient area, but this area is just inside the gate, so on the weekend, lots of traffic noise from other folks zipping through the resort. Good water/electric/cable, but had to pay for WI-FI. This park is really a trailer park, with 3 sections for transient campers. If you come here, request a site back by the river, or down by the boat storage. I cant imagine how noisy it would be if it was summer time. We would stay here again, but ask for a site in the back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Stayed here for one year. Review is from 3/08 to 3/09. Paid with discounted 4 month rate of about $2400 or $2600, can't remember exactly. Off season monthly is $575.00. Nice gated park. This is a repeat for me. They let me build a deck for my stay. One of the employees helped me take it down when I left. Very quiet away from the waterfront. Much better than last time with all the parties. Very quiet Sunday night to Friday morning. Heavy weekend occupancy. Very dog friendly. Huge water slide. Would stay again if in area. Local dining is limited and not that close. Emerald Isle and Morehead have decent restaurants. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Spent 10 months on waterfront lot in summer. Trash pick up was nice. Mail delivered to door by office staff. Boat ramp accessible. Grass area off water front behind our lot was used in day for boat trailer parking, tents, and at night for large golf cart parties with DJ. Parties were aimed at the younger crowd. Expect people to walk through lots and drive carts through at night as late as 12:30. Security is present. Local police are hired to keep things in order. Never noticed real problem. Liked security gate, although was always broke with people driving through them. Salt air corroded everything we had out. Would return if brought back in area for work or vacation. Very pet friendly. Pool small for size of park, but huge water slide. Antique auction next to park was great, found many great deals. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We enjoyed our site right on the water. The fishing was good and the view was pretty, especially at sunset. The grounds were clean and level. The people were friendly. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Tent.

We stayed here in the off season several times, it was a very nice place. I can imagine in the summer months it must be fantastic. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is located on the Bogue Sound, intercoastal water way. It's big with gated security. There are a large number of permanent sites with nice looking homes. Swimming pool has a built in water slide that is really fun and the pool stays open until 8PM. Has a luandry room, camp store, game room, and snack bar. Only a few miles from Emerald Island. Very nice campground. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Park location was a primary concern close to Morehead City. Park is clean, quiet, never saw a child in four days. Mostly permanent or seasonal sites. Very clean well maintained. Friendly office staff, office closes at 2pm. If you arrive later your site and clear instructions are posted on a bulletin board at the office. There is a long pier available to guests, nice fishing place. Not much for children to do but nice for older adults that like quiet. Worth the $35, but this is off-season. Regular rate $45 in-season a bit high. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park was very well kept up. There are a lot of permanents here, but it is very quiet. Joanne was very helpful letting us check in late at night and just come in to pay in the morning. At the edge of the property there is water and we saw people headed down there with their kayaks. Looks like a great place to spend a couple of days. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This a long narrow park stretching from Highway 24 to Bogue Bay. Many long term residents but plenty of sites for those passing through. Roads were paved, sites mostly sand. Highway 24 is busy but the park is very quiet, especially in early January. Wi-Fi was available at the office at the front of the park but not in the park itself. There is ample shopping, restaurants, sight-seeing, etc just minutes away. Staff was friendly. No recycling available. We would stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a lovely campground. Very spacious with good roads and easy pull-through sites. There was also back-in sites and a couple down by the Bogue Sound that were more expensive. The bath house was very clean and the office was immaculate with the staff being very friendly. It was also a good location to tour the area. We particularly like Beaufort which was about 20 minutes away. We would definitely camp here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We wanted a RV campground on or close to the beach. This has neither but does have a pier out to the waterway with a bench. The campground appears old but the office staff was very friendly. Most of the residents are permanent RV types and some cautioned me about poison oak so if you have kids, be careful. The space we had was difficult to level but had good cable but no Wi-Fi. The office claims to have a hotspot but you must go to their office to access. If bugs or mosquitoes bother you, keep your door shut! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice park, with a nice pier to walk out and fish or just sit and enjoy the sunset. This is a Passport America park, and for the 50% discount, they only accept cash payment. This is close to Morehead City, Atlantic Beach and Beaufort, which are quaint waterfront towns that are fun to sight see and eat some great seafood. There is a super Wal-Mart within a couple of miles of this park. We enjoyed our stay here, and the staff was great. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park suited our needs as we were in the area to see family. However, most of the RV's there are there either permanently or seasonally and there are few temporary sites for a few nights or a week. The office has short office hours--9-2:30 but everything was left on the door and we were at the front of the park. We were disappointed that cable was not available--the cables were there but they're there for people who plan to install and pay for cable. The temporary sites are gravel and not level but the park is well maintained and we would have no problems in staying here again. This is not a big tourist area and this park obviously serves the needs of those who are there. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I would have rated this park higher but they have no laundry facilities and we needed to do our laundry. Also, you get a choice of sewer or cable TV. We selected sewer since we needed to dump. The TV was ok on the antenna, local stations only. WiFi at the office only. Very friendly lady in the office. Good for a one night stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is one nice little park. The people are very friendly, management seems fair, the lots are big enough and spare parking is available. Drainage is good on almost all sites. The bay is the view and there is a pier to go out and picnic if desired. Shade is available but the squirrels are a problem at times, they would fall out of the tree and land on the roof. I love it here and will return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The Park is a very nice, quiet park with a very friendly staff, plenty of shade for most sites, a good clean bathhouse, and an overall very pleasant experience- & at a great price ($30 for our basic hookup site). They have a good pier (with plenty of nice crabs being caught by trap & string alike- fishing sounded a little iffy because tide is so low), and the kayak/canoe access was easy, and convenient to a good channel for fishing. While we did not see a playground/pool for our kids, that is not something my family was looking for- the pier, the water, and easy access to the beach are what we came for. We do wish they allowed pitted campfires, which is a big deal for my s'more loving family. They're just a short drive to Atlantic Beach & Morehead City, and the setting was fantastic. We'll be back. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
This campground is not much to look at from the entrance, but keep heading to the water and it's really beautiful. It was very peaceful (granted it is October) and we had site B72 which was wonderful. There is a pier with a picnic table that would be great in the summertime. The only downside were the mosquitoes - vicious! The restrooms were very clean. I would recommend this campground. We camped here in a Motorhome.
