Pelican Point is only a few years old. Everything is in excellent repair and works well. Getting a hold of the personnel in the office can take a bit. Just leave a message and they will get back to you. Staff is friendly and helpful. Active, retired, or DoD ID required to get on base. - BounderPounder

Great RV park on a great base. Clean and spacious and the front office was so friendly and helpful. Free Wi-Fi and cable. Level pads. Great hook ups. - buckingthenorm

This is our second time at this park. Unlike a lot of military campgrounds, wifi works good, lots of cable channels available and all hookups work fine. Like most military campgrounds, sites are large, level and well maintained with concrete pads. Lots of room for bike riding and dog walking. Fishing pier nearby. There is some aircraft noise; it is a Marine Corps Air Station. Also, the electric and the sewer hookups are placed somewhat oddly; both lines are stretched to max length but it works. One of the best places we have stayed. - Bojangles

Tough call rating this place, I am giving it a positive rating as we enjoyed our week here. But this place is not for everybody. OK for singles and or couples, would not recommend it for families. As mentioned in other review, self contained units only. It is sort of a fish camp type place, but not bad. A couple of units had guys that showed up on the weekend only to fish. It is located 11 miles south of New Bern off of US-70. $20 a night or $100 for a week, solid 50 amp, water and sewer. Sites were grass, but solid ground and level. We had no problems in this very quiet area and considered it a very good value. The only problem was our Verizon cell phones and broadband were at the edge of reception. They worked, but not great. We would come back if in the area. - Bob and Inga

This is a campground in progress...its biggest draw is that it is on a tributary to the Neuse River with good fishing. It is at the end of a 3/4 mile dirt road. The airplane noise from the Cherry Point Marine Air Installation could make the motorhome shake, but provides a healthy dose of patriotism. Found no rest rooms...suggest self-contained units only. Felt level site with full-hook-up for the price was a value. - Here4Now

We were visiting friends who had reservations at this CG. We're self contained and don't use the facilities except for an occasional shower. We visited on a weeknight in October.
This a very nice campground. Sites are spacious, level and well maintained. Electric sites are tucked into the woods. Most primitive sites have waterfront views. There's no wifi. There was adequate ATT and Verizon coverage. Registration is self serve. The push button showers were clean with hot water. - dsvt

This is a very nice, small campground located in the Neuse River Recreation Area and known as Flanners Beach Campground (highway signs use this name). The park is very clean, has on-site hosts, and good size lots for big rigs. Site 3 was long enough for our 40' big rig and tow with plenty of space all around. Sites are a mix of sand and gravel and level enough that we didn't need to jack the rig. Picnic table and fire pit at each site. Rate reflects electric only. We didn't use the restrooms. Park is set to close for the season on Nov. 30. - DiplomatTraveler

Locally, this is known as Flanners Beach Campground in the Neuse River Recreation Area. We stayed here for four night in the middle of July with another family. They had a driving RV and we were in our pop-up.
The campground is small, 40 sites, but has quite a lot to offer. The sites are spacious and mostly private. They are clean and most are wooded. The small rest room on the north side is older and while it needs some attention, it is clean. The large restroom is clean, well maintained, and accessible. Water spigots are located throughout the loop. There is a dump station available for campers. The south end bathhouse is much nicer than the north end.
The park is very nice. There are hiking and biking trails surrounding the park. A picnic area adjacent to the campground. There is also a beach with swimming/fishing access on the Neuse River. Be warned, the river is very shallow at the beach. We needed to walk out over 1/4 mile to get to water waist deep.
The campground is located off Hwy 70 between New Bern and Havelock. There are many attractions and activities within a 45 minute drive, we enjoyed seeing New Bern, Fort Macon, the NC Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores, some time at the beach, and Beaufort.
Overall, a nice campground for a reasonable rate. - dmaerz

We stayed here to visit our son who is stationed at Cherry Point. If it had not been for that we would have left for a campground outside the base. The place was infested with ants that invaded your RV. It was necessary to spray a barrier around your home to keep them out. There was a huge nest of copperhead snakes in the hedge behind our site. Each night they were out looking for snakes. Ten were captured while we were there. They seemed more interested in preserving the snakes than the safety of the people staying there. Small kids played near the hedge daily. Many snakes escaped back into the hedge before the game warden arrived to catch them. The park hosts did not want us to kill them. We stayed 4 nights. The people staying there were very friendly as were the camp hosts. In a commercial campground the problems listed above would have been taken care of immediately. That is my major complaint. The campground is located in walking distance to the commissary and other base features. It was priced right too. - petendoll

I definitely think the work-in-progress has stopped in favor of building more cabins. Campground is an open field with a tiny pond at one end. Most of the sites were occupied by RV units that looked like they were long-term, perhaps area workers or full-timers. There were assorted blankets and other materials tossed over a fence. The place looked untidy and uncared for (except for the cabins). The TV cables were lying on the ground; ours had no connectors on the ends. The 50 amp service was good and the wi-fi was good with some dropouts. The sewer system looked to be mostly on the ground instead of under it. We found the place OK for a one night stop on our way through. The price shown included a Passport America discount, available Sun-Wed nights. I think we'd make other arrangements next time we were in the New Bern area. - Jay Rutherford

We stayed here for the month. Actually we extended our due to the threat of hurricane Joaquin. Park staff were very helpful. Now this is not a 5* place, but there is ample room. Yes, there are a lot of full time folks living here. We found the place to be very quiet. The cabins are nicely done. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here on our way through. - anniekat

Lots of old campers and permanent residents. The staff couldn't be more pleasant and friendly and accommodating. It's basically a gravel and sand mix to park on and a small patch of grass between campers with picnic tables. Hookups are old and in need of updating. The lake is a very small hole in the ground for carp fishing. - seeinsilver

Not far from the Sound. Sites need work. Many campers appear seasonal, but most are well maintained. Low water pressure. Not all sites are 50 amp. We got good satellite reception. No wifi. Shorter RVs and 5th wheels will do OK, but not for most big rigs. - leciel19

This is a very nice, clean, and very quiet campground, which was exactly what we were looking for as we visited the Atlantic Beach area. The park has mostly seasonal/long term folks, but there are plenty of overnight type spaces this time of year.
If you're looking for a pool and a playground and nightly activities this is not your campground, but if you want a beautiful setting with access to a fishing pier where you can watch the sunrise or sunset I highly recommend this campground. There is no WiFi other than the hotspot at the office and I couldn't pick that up even with my booster, so we relied on our Verizon cell service and data plan which worked well. The other campgrounds in the area were higher priced and did advertise WiFi, but for the low rates at this park we figured we could use our data plan and even if we went over we would still be money ahead.
When we checked in we were given a bag of candy and a pen. That was a nice touch that we haven't received anywhere else.
There are no laundry facilities or cable TV. We were able to get over the air channels but couldn't get CBS. - Maraywil

Park location was a primary concern close to Morehead City. Park is clean, quiet, never saw a child in four days. Mostly permanent or seasonal sites. Very clean well maintained. Friendly office staff, office closes at 2pm. If you arrive later your site and clear instructions are posted on a bulletin board at the office. There is a long pier available to guests, nice fishing place. Not much for children to do but nice for older adults that like quiet. Worth the $35, but this is off-season. Regular rate $45 in-season a bit high. - Ron & Linda

Park is mainly for seasonal people and full timers. They have a set amount for others. We needed one night only. Have to make a reservation if coming after 4 when office closes. Office lady very nice. Nice pool area and pond. Had nice and clean laundromat and showers/restroom. Fine for one night but overpriced for sure. Big rigs no problem. Park very quite due to time of year. - Paige Taylor

We stayed a week in this park. We had site 139, which was a level pullthru. It was wide enough for our 3 slides and 2 awnings, and long enough for our 35ft camper and truck. The power was good as well as the water pressure. They had cable, but we did not use it. It is semi shaded. The water and electric were in the middle of the site and the sewer hook up was at the back of the site, which was a backward set up for our rv. The pool was small and clean , as were the bathroom and laundry room. The dog park was pretty nice, but not shaded. Most interior roads were tight. We did see ants, but they did not get into our camper.The office staff was nice. My biggest problem was that i specifically asked for the more shaded site next to us when i made the reservations, only to be told it was already reserved. No one showed up the entire week we were there, and it was not offered to us on arrival. This park is about 8 miles to Cape Cateret, and 8 miles to Morehead City. Im not sure if we will stay here again, or try another campground in the future. - mahill526

I really wanted to give this CG a higher rating. The owner was very nice and accommodating. Even though the park has a lot of perm residents it's pretty nice and landscaped well. The pool area is very relaxing. The issue is the ants. At first I thought our site was on an anthill, we had thousands of small ants throughout our coach and we had to throw a lot of food away. The owner let us move but every other site had a similar issue. Maybe it's the area. Take the ants away and this is a very nice park and I would stay here again. - Way2Roll

I stayed at this KOA 6 years ago. This RV park is right on the Neuse river, and even has it's own boat dock and launch ramp to the river. The boat dock and launch are in very good condition, and there are even a few swing benches that let you sit out and view the river from close up if you desire. We were in a premium patio site that was the closest to the river, and our front windshield looked out on the river. However, in the 6 years since we were here last, a lot of the foliage was allowed to grow up in front of the sites, and that great view is almost completely obstructed. The site was dirt gravel, but the patio was cement. Normally that is not an issue, but the dirt of the RV pad has been allowed to build up higher than the patio, and during the regular rains we got during our week stay, the white alkaline mud would wash over the patio, turning it a milky white slippery substance. The site came with a wire patio set, which was nice as I didn't have to get out our chairs. We didn't get to spend too much time outside though, the heat, humidity, and bugs kept us inside a lot. The KOA had all the usual family friendly stuff, pool, playground and bike rentals. There is also a small "catch and release" pond on site, and a mini golf course as well. We paid $58 a night for our FHU site. The park offered free Wifi, but our Verizon air card worked well here. I was a little surprised to see that the bathhouse closest to our site was not handicapped accessible due to small doors and raised entries on the entry door and the showers themselves. There was another facility in the main building, but I didn't get a chance to check it out. The location does have some road noise from Route 17 that fronts the park. So while this park is not quite the "10" that I recall from years past, it is still a nice, well cared for KOA, especially if you have children. - SargeW

Easy to get into, friendly staff, they showed us to our site and delivered firewood. The pool was clean, they have a store stocked in case you forgot to bring something. Nice playground, jumping pad, wagon ride, free ice cream sundaes for the kids, catch and release pond and the Neuse River out my back window. Good cell service and wifi. It was a bit pricey, but if you have children it may be worth it. My grandson loved the life-sized chess and checkers! - dcr126

This is a good clean and convenient campground. The best part of the campground is the pier and the dock that look out over a beautiful lake. A great place to relax and watch the sunset after being on the road all day. The restrooms and showers are clean and the grounds are well maintained. We only stayed 1 night and did not use the pool but it looked clean and inviting. There was a little noise from the highway because the campground is right on RT17. The WIFI and cable TV worked well.
I would stay at this campground again if I am in the area. - Freelander1

This is a small, but very friendly campground. The owners, Hubert and Christine Pollitt, were extremely helpful, and enjoy being the hosts of this nice little campground. The sites are spaced apart, and while we were there, most were empty (off season), but they are level and have gravel for the vehicles to park on. Paved drives and sites might injure the deer or other animals that visit this remote area. A short walk, and there is a nice dock to fish on, as well as a boat ramp. This is a great area to canoe or kayak. There are tent sites right on the water, with the RV sites about 150-200' away. Some of the original sites don't have sewer hook-up, though several others do. There is a dump station, so it's easy enough to dump as you leave. Shower/toilet is an old Mobile-home, that has been converted. It is about 150' from the nearest site. We used our on-board toilet & shower, so I didn't check them out. This campground is a work in progress, and the owners will go out of their way to help you, as they work to build their property. This may not be for everyone, but we did have a very nice time. We stayed two nights, and would camp here again, if in the area. - PapPappy

Very large mobile home / park model park with a dozen overnight sites. Paved road with grass sites, gated entry, club house, water slide and pool, snack bar and small store. Private boat launch and pier. Most non-permanent sites are back in, short, uphill and close together. Utility pedestal close to front of site and sewer outlet in back corner so difficult to empty mid-rig outlet going uphill. Had multiple low voltage occurrences. Only one trash location and only 5 washing machines for over 700 sites. Wi-Fi $4 per day and extra charge for cable TV. At this premium price I expect a premium park and site. They also add a $4 resort fee to published price. Even with Passport America discount on weekdays, we will not return. - Pepper Dan

May 2015 - $35.00
Close to Emerald Isle. An Encore/TT park. Rate based on using our PA membership. Mostly seasonal sites with about 30 overnight. Verizon signal was good and we used our hot spot. Place does get busy on the weekends - kids, golf carts, etc.. However, noise never was a problem during our stay and the park basically goes quiet at dusk. Especially quiet on the weekdays. Pool with large waterslide. Security guard/gate at the entrance. Sites have full hookups, are back in, level and reasonably spaced. No trees between sites and we had good satellite access. Plenty of room for our 45' motorhome to maneuver - site and the roads. The park overall is well maintained and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. Will definitely use again when in the area. - DavidO
