3 Parks near Belhaven, North Carolina
Oct 2011 - $25.00
This is a really well kept and convenient spot on the Pungo River, just east of Belhaven, NC. They have a boat launch ramp and propane available, and are the last and best place to wait overnight for the Swan Quarter ferry to Ocracoke Island. - Red Moose

There are not many full-hookup campgrounds in this part of rural North Carolina. This campground is off the beaten path, offers very large campsites near a river, is very quiet, only $20/night, and the owners are very friendly & helpful. For instance, the sign at the office says "If we're not around, just pick out a site and get settled in, we'll come around and see you later". Laundry and showers facilities are provided. The campground is adjacent to a mobile home park, no wi-fi and limited cell phone access as only US Cellular seems to work here. The campsites are in two areas, one area is wide open and the other in the trees. The nearest grocery store is about 11 miles away on the 264 bypass in Belhaven, so stock up before coming to the campground. We would stay here again. - mountain_man

Some of the sites are shaded and some are not. We were disappointed that there was no dump station. Also we saw no posted quiet hours and one group was very loud late into the night. On the plus side, Lake Phelps is beautiful and we hear it is great to fish in, if you have a boat. The park also has some interesting historical buildings, but they were not open while we were there. - jc24

We were not impressed! We have stayed before under different management and although new management is trying, it is a long way from good. Lots are very close, ranging from sunny/open exposures to some shade. Site surface is a concrete pad with dirt, sand and grass. There is a picnic table.
When we arrived, we had advised them of a 3-4 month stay. When we went to pay for our third month, we had been advised that the site had been rented out to someone else the next day. Initially an alternative site was not offered but after some strong words and 6 hours later, we were given a different site and an apologetic discount for the inconvenience. (This was the Thursday of the July 4th weekend-just try finding another park.)
We were religiously forgotten for sewer pump outs, even though regularly added to the list.
We also found out that we were moved because a full timer on the hill (permanent sites) complained about the noise of the truck (HDT) and really wanted us gone from the park. New management does not run the park. The hill residents on Paradise Island do, as well as the maintenance manager who oversees the pumping, etc.
The weekly Saturday night DJ or Band is a little noisey. Much better when it is once a month. Some full timers actually go elsewhere for Saturday night so they can sleep.
The store staff and housekeeping staff are great. Still major flooding with lots of rain.
This park is not friendly to HDTs (converted tractor trailer type trucks for pulling 5th wheels). Will not return: will park at Walmart first. - witchey1

Under even newer management since our last visit. Much cleaner, but still no scattered trash cans- just the parks dumpsters which have been increased in number. Security has been increased (a good thing). Roads are still dirt and could probably be upgraded to gravel but dirt is still good. - witchey1

We stayed here to be close to family. The park is very large and has a lot of seasonal campers. Easy access to the Interstate. Very easy in and out of the park. They assigned us site B-4, but it was very tight. The gentleman that escorted to our site knew we would not fit, so we asked to be moved to B-5. That was not a problem. The campground was pretty empty because it was so early in the season. I am not sure how easy it would have been to be moved if the campground was fuller. Our site was grass and pine needle covered and large tree roots, but level. Good electricity and water pressure. There is a lot to do in the area. New Bern, NC is about 35 minutes. Very historic. Rocky Mount is a little over an hour drive. The Prime Smokehouse downtown is very good. Greenville is close, Sam Jones BBQ is some of the best around. If in the area again, we would probably stay here. - Cliff-fa-fa
