We stayed here for a couple of nights to see the outer banks area. The park is not easy to reach. Not mentioned in any of the other reviews, is the last mile and half which goes through a rural residential area. The rural road is very narrow. Although there is a painted dividing line, neither side of the line was wide enough for a motor home. So you have to drive to the middle of the road and hope no one comes at you as there really is no place to go for opposing traffic to pass. The good thing is that the first quarter mile of the road is where most of the residents live. So once you get past this area, there are very few chances to come upon someone going in the opposite direction. Then the last half mile of the road is a paved, single lane road. The good thing about this portion of the road is it is straight and you can see the campground at the end. So you will be able to see opposing traffic coming at you. The park had gated entry which required entering a code to enter. The exit is automatically controlled when a vehicle approaches the gate(s). The interior road is paved, one lane wide and runs in a circle around the centrally located 5 acre lake. The sites were gravel with a concrete patio that has an outside table. Just a few pull through sites. Most of the sites are either back in or pull in so the utility connections for the two sites are centrally located between them. But that requires a lot of hose length to reach the fittings. They have full hook ups – water, electricity (50 AMP), & sewer connections. The sites were generally level. Privacy between the sites is based upon the distance between the sites. There are very few trees in the park but the park is ringed by trees. The trees didn’t interfere with satellite reception. WiFi reception was good. There seem to be some long term residents but they were in another area not around the lake. No designated pet area but there was sufficient area to walk dogs along the park road. There were no bag dispensers around the park to pick up waste. Only one dumpster which was located near the office outside of the gated area. For being in a hazardous/severe weather area, there was no underground storm shelter. None of the structures in the park were identified as a severe weather shelter. We camped here in a Motorhome.

After being forced inland by Hurricane Arthur from Hatteras Island, we found North River Campground. Although it is a bit off the beaten path, the campground is outstanding. After calling to make sure a site was available, the owners told us that they would be looking for us as we would be arriving after closing time and the entry way is gated with card access. When we arrived, the wife checked us in and husband led us to our site which was very spacious. We ended up staying three nights before we could get back to our campground on Hatteras Island. We enjoyed the stay and found the owners and the staff to be very friendly and courteous. We would certainly stay again if an opportunity ever presents itself. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

Really, really nice RV park, good distance between sites, which are mostly situated around a 5 acre lake. We asked and the personnel allowed our dog to swim in the swimming area which he enjoyed. I used the laundry which was inexpensive ($1.25 wash and $1.00 dry). We also had a pizza here which was good. We would have stayed longer but had reservations and had to move on. There are some permanent RVs but they seem to be located in a different area. The only negative is that the approach road is somewhat narrow. On the positive, fishermen seemed to like the area, we saw several launching their boats as we departed in the morning. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
