This campground is mainly used by permanent weekend campers although there are a few "nightly sites" available. We stayed there because of it's proximity to attractions in the area. It's a little off the beaten path. The campers here are basically in a parking lot with only 10 feet between sites. Most campers in this park are permanently plumbed into the sewer. This place is like a ghost town during the week, with most campers showing up for the weekend.
The park staff was unusually friendly and helpful.
We probably wont stay here again since we toured the attractions we wanted to see in New Bern. We camped at River's Edge Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
Tips for other Campers:
In New Bern - tour the Tryon Palace and the Fireman's museum.
Date of Stay: August, 2009 - $47.00
Very friendly and helpful owners - we felt very welcomed here. Interior roads are sand/very fine gravel and in excellent condition. Plenty of maneuvering room for our 40' coach. Some of the campground will have an inch of standing water after a heavy rain, so have waterproof shoes/boots available. The campground, with only about 50 sites, has enough real estate to install another 200 sites! Sites are all back-ins with a nice concrete patio at each. The primary clientele of the campground are seasonals and the primary attraction is fishing and crabbing. As such, there were only about four or five sites available for transients, with the rest occupied by seasonals. None of the sites are right on the river, but it isn't far away and you will enjoy the river-view ambiance. There is a long pier available to sit and ponder, or fish/crab as well as a boat ramp for your use. Campground is very satellite-friendly. We will use this campground again. Campground entrance is N 35.16276, W 76.69325. We camped at River's Edge Family Campground in a Motorhome.
