Like other have said its is a tough one to rate. So let me say if you want a resort this is NOT the place for you, if you want pavement this is not the place for you, if you want space this is definitely not the place for you. If you do not like to track sand in your RV, this is not the place for you
It has water sewer and electric, a few sites have 50 amp,power is adequate at 118 volts, it has approximately 25 sites located in parking lot style on sand there have been little to no up grades in 40 years, it has broken down and worn out picnic table with worn wood roof over them on each site, your neighbors sewer hose is pretty close to your able, it probably started out as a fishing spot, we are one of two motor homes here, most are trailers. The camp ground provides nothing, no play ground, cable TV, they only accept cash or check for payment, it does have a greasy spoon restaurant on site and a very large fishing pier.
Now for the good, people are all very friendly, if you love the beach, walking on the 8 miles or so of pristine beach, hearing the waves crashing, fishing, surfing and hanging out in a low key place. This may be just the place for you. It is located right on the beach, just a very short walk as in less than 200 feet.
For ourselves we love it and for the beach part of it and the people I give it a 10. This is the only campground the island, I cannot believe the owners have not sold out to developers. we will definitely come back. We camped at Holden Beach Fishing Pier & Campground in a Motorhome.
Tips for other Campers:
There are a couple of restaurants a few miles away, but you come here for the beach!!!!
Like others have stated this is a hard park to rate. Very old and tired. Surroundings could use trash pickup. Just general trash in every nook throughout the park and near the small store/cafe. $1 to walk the pier. Picnic tables and attached covers, some decent but old, others falling down. Full sun and AC finds it hard to keep up with 95+ days we camped. No awning out, wind was horrible. Could barely open camper door and we had to open it for our child who couldn't hang onto it. Typical greasy spoon cafe. Camp store very sparse but small general store just a very short walk down the sidewalk along with nice ice cream store and surf shop. No amenities at all. But as others stated if you are here for the beach it is direct ocean front access. Beach nice but bit trashy. Hubby says he would definitely go back because surf fishing interests him here, but I am on the fence about a return trip. We had fun but I have stayed at other beachfront CG's that for the small price increase you get tons of amenities and beachfront. We camped at Holden Beach Fishing Pier & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
Very hard to rate this park. My wife and I loved it! The park and the surrounding area is stuck back in the 60s. The cg. is tired and built for smaller rigs but has real character. There is no pool, mini golf, paved sites or anything else you would look for in an ocean campground-BUT if you love the ocean, a very laid back atmosphere and fishing, this is the place! Our trailer is 40' and took up what used to be two sites when the average trailer was much smaller. We did have 50 amp but there is a limited number of spots that have 50 amp. The rest are 30 amp. There were a few permanent or seasonal trailers there but they were nicely kept. It is very tight if you have one of the sites in the middle of the rows. Not everyone's cup of tea, but if you are looking for a quiet ocean cg without all the glitz-check this one out! We camped at Holden Beach Fishing Pier & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a great little campground that is not very widely known. It is not in any of the directories that I know of. The sites are close together and not very big, and the campground really doesn't have much to recommend it except for one thing--it is right on Holden Beach! The campground is right up against the dune and on the other side, accessible by the public access at one end of the campground, is the beach and Atlantic ocean. The $28 rate that I quoted is the off-season rate; peak season is twice that. Also the restrooms and showers are closed during the winter season, but all sites are full-hookup. The Fishing Pier & Campground enterprise includes the fishing pier, a small store, and a restaurant, all run by the same folks, who are friendly and helpful.
