Great location. We paid Passport america Price so this was great for the area. There are lots of campgrounds on the outer banks. If you want to be on the water, you can go to Nags Head area which is close to 100 dollars per night. Sands is small, quiet, the martins are great to keep away bugs. We had a great site with a tree for shade. Everything worked well. The local fish places are excellent. This is a good camp ground if you have activities planned yourself. The kids don't have a huge amount to do so if you want stuff at your CG this is not for you. Great to use as a base for surfing etc. Good TV, good cell coverage, nice friendly helpful staff and a good book exchange. We camped at Sands Of Time Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a small no frills campground but very nice and very quiet and great location. Getting to and from the campground was easy as was getting in and out of the all back-in sites. The sites are dirt but level with plenty of room for your slide outs and awning. Each site has a picnic table and most no shade. We had good power on our 50 amp site but they charge by the usage even on short stays. At 15 cents per KW it was cheaper to use our propane at times. The water pressure is good and tasted good. The WI-FI did not work most of the time and the host was working on it but we did have a strong signal on our Verizon link. The cable had many channels to choose from. We would stay here again. We camped at Sands Of Time Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a great little park. Friendly staff. Our site was level, partially shaded, with excellent W/E/S hookups, good cable service and solid Wi-Fi. Convenient to explore southern Hatteras Island. We would stay again. We camped at Sands Of Time Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice, relaxed little park. Staff was helpful. Restrooms were clean. Some shaded sites, all nicely spaced. A section of seasonal campers was neat and didn't have a lot of junk outside. Purple Martin colonies kept the mosquitoes down. Owners on site kept a close eye on things. Off the highway and quiet. The Wi-Fi was very good. Price reflects Passport America rate plus separate electric. We would definitely come here again. We camped at Sands Of Time Campground in a Motorhome.

Rate reflects Passport America. Great park and a great area. We loved it here. A bit of an old park but nonetheless well maintained. Only little downside was the sulfur smell of the water in the bathrooms. Caused by an hurricane from a while ago. All the site waters are fine though as they are on city water. Just the bathroom bldg is on the old well. You can bike ride or walk to the ocean in 10 minutes. Loved it! Can definitely recommend it and we would definitely return, only for longer next time.

Very friendly staff. Very helpful with directing us to the places that must be seen on the Outer Banks. We had a shady site with a large grassy area for our use. While the location of the campground is not "on the beach", it is conveniently located and allowed us to tour the Outer Banks in both directions. We spent 4 nights and enjoyed our stay, as this was our first visit to the Outer Banks. We would come back here. We camped at Sands Of Time Campground in a Motorhome.

This campground was ok. Nothing fancy. They do not accept credit cards, cash only (which is kind of a pain), and charged us $1.00 for our second dog. The first dog was free. We camped at Sands Of Time Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We liked it here. It was very quiet but a good location for the beaches of the Outer Banks. There is a good grocery store at the top of the road and I can really recommend the hairdresser located just opposite the campground. The sites are all back-in but are easy to navigate. There is no swimming pool but I think this made the site very quiet and not full of children. The price we paid was Passport America price and it was good value for money. We camped at Sands Of Time Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice clean park. 10-15 minute walk to beach. A couple good places to eat in area. Very quiet park. Not much for kids to do except go to beach. We used the Passport America discount for a very good rate for the area. We camped at Sands Of Time Campground in a Motorhome.

A nice place to relax and get away from any hustle and bustle. Very friendly staff. The site was grass; it is very level, easy to back in. Sewer hookup is too far in the back for us; bring a loong hose. The rate is PA. Electric is metered and extra (we spent 3.45$ for three days). Very quiet day and night. We followed the staff's recommendation to buy some fresh fish at the local harbor, a 5 minute walk away. Good advice. Grocery was also in walking distance. Nice feature is the birdhouses on the campground, whose inhabitants keep the mosquitoes somewhat in check. Bathhouses are pretty old but appeared clean. The Wi-Fi was an issue as it shut off once a day and we needed to walk to the office to get the server rebooted. This would be our place to stay again when on the OBX. We camped at Sands Of Time Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We went to Avon after Route 12 reopened on October 11th. The park was in good shape considering the damage that was done in the area by hurricane Irene. We will return next year as it is very convenient and clean with larger sites than others in the area. Per night price was Passport America including charge for electric usage. We camped at Sands Of Time Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground is VERY basic. There is no store, the laundry facility is undersized for the number of sites and if infested with palmetto bugs (cockroaches). There is no pool or any sort of things to do at the campground. We camp 50+ nights a year and this was one of worst experiences. Granted it was late July and it was so hot we were hallucinating. Maybe in the spring or fall, but keep in mind it really is a VERY basic campground with not much to do. We camped at Sands Of Time Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We really liked this campground; the water was good, there were plenty of small trees scattered throughout, and nice green grass and good-sized sites for a coastal campground. They had a little apartment complex of well-inhabited martin houses right in the center of the campground and visible from our rig, which seemed to help on the bug front and made the cats very happy indeed when we opened the blinds on the back window. The only downside is that it’s land-locked, so you have to drive to the beach access lots at the national seashore (two miles in either direction on the main road.) Rate is Passport America rate. We camped at Sands Of Time Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice park off the main highway. No beach access, have to drive a few miles. Sites were good, as was power, water and cell signal(AT&T). Would stay again. We camped at Sands Of Time Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice campground; wide decent sized sites but they all are back-in. Can not see the ocean from the campground. The Passport America rate is not half price as we paid $20 and the off season rate was $34. Our pet added $1/day and we had to pay for electricity also. We left an $8 electrical deposit for 3 days (moderate weather so didn't need heat or air conditioning). The problem came when leaving as the office closed at 5:00 PM and didn't reopen until 8:00 AM. We got back after 5 and had to leave early to catch a ferry. Ended up forfeiting the $5 or so extra deposit. We would stay there again. We camped at Sands Of Time Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
