These are nice people and the campground is convenient to Carolina Beach. It was available and inexpensive. Now for the real review. I was lucky. I have family on the island so I spent most of my time there, not in the campground. The sign says established in 1963 and there haven't been any improvements since. The driveway was potholes with some dirt mixed in. We found our spot which was supposed to be a pull thru. It probably could have been had it not been for the tree on one side and the power pole on the other. I got backed in though from the other side. A bit tight but I made it. Got everything hooked up and of course one of my boys has to use the bathroom almost immediately. He went to wash his hands and the smell of rotten eggs permeated the camper. The water smelled horrible. I talked to another camper there and he was running two charcoal water filters inline with each other to make it bearable. The pool was similar in color to the Olympic Diving pool in Rio, a nice greenish hue. The WiFi was available almost everywhere. I connected to four different access points and got mind blowing speeds just short of 1Mbps. That's more than double what dial-up can provide. The campground is more suited to the permanent residents as there are many on site. If you have somewhere else to shower and brush your teeth, then thus is a good place to hook up and lay your head at night. If you need the campground facilities, go somewhere else. We camped at Carolina Beach Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

It is easy to confuse this campground with the Carolina Beach State Park. There is indeed Wi-Fi over this entire campground. We received a map when checking in which clearly shows 16 hotspots. This is also indicated on their website. The sites are actually quite large and none of them are un-level or sandy. People should really pay closer attention to at least the correct name of the business! Overall it's not a bad place. Very shady, quiet, and close to the water. We camped at Carolina Beach Family Campground in a Motorhome.

We did not actually stay here. We had a site reserved for 3 nights, pulled in, and pulled right back out. The website pictures are absolutely NOTHING like the actual campground. The sites are extremely small, and are awning to awning. The office was very dark inside (there were lights that were burned out and different colored bulbs), I sent several emails to them and never got a response, and the lady in the office was not very friendly. The pool looks like a concrete bowl, the sites are not level, It is really run-down and not easily accessible with anything other than a pop up or a tent!!

This campsite is mainly for small campers and/or tents. Campsites are smaller than they appear online. While our 32' camper fit in the site it was a tight fit. There is water and sewer dump station available, but not at your sites. Water is located throughout the campground, you just have to fill up before you get to your site. The sites are pretty level, and are crushed rock. Sites have fire pits/grill and a picnic table. The bath houses are clean and easily accessible. We had a generator, but not an inverter type and only used it when we charged the batteries. Would camp here again during the winter or fall, but would only in a tent.

We planned to stay just overnight but due to some repair on our tow truck we spent five nights. This campground is very run down, no improvements have been made since a long time. Considering what you pay it's a fair deal though. The sites are very shady, sand and dirt. They are not very level but have very good access to hookups. No TV, no WiFi. Most campers are permanents. We didn't use the bathrooms but a glimpse at the laundry facility was enough to know you better avoid the facilities. Despite the Highway to Carolina Beach it was quiet at night (except for the acorns falling on our roof). If you don't mind the shabby neighborhood it's an ok and cheap place to stay for one or two nights what we would do if in the area. Don't miss the battleship - it's spectacular! We camped at Carolina Beach Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Great campground! We got to stay here for 2 nights. This campground is a really nice campground for peace and quiet. We enjoyed it so much! The scenery was beautiful. The park has great amenities and staff. We enjoyed the stay. It's something different compared to nascar racing. We are heading to Bristol for the nascar race. This is our first trip ever. We are in our new motorhome and new to camping so we are enjoying every minute of it. Great Park! We camped at Carolina Beach Family Campground in a Motorhome.

This was the worst campground I've ever stayed in. My ten year old son and I pulled in and felt as though we should have just kept driving. We decided to stay knowing we'd only for here for 2 nights and be gone site seeing for the entire day time. The staff were not pleasant. The campers did not respect the campground and there was garbage strewn throughout. In the bathrooms, which smelled of urine and human waste, there was an old truck bench seat, along with signs that read: "If you are approached by a beggar, please notify the office immediately. Begging usually leads to theft." And another sign that read, "$100 reward for the campground vandal." We will not stay here again and do not recommend that others stay. We camped at Carolina Beach Family Campground in a Tent.
