We stayed here to visit son stationed at Camp Lejeune. Campground at least half full of seasonal/full time rvs. Our site was on grass with no trees next to a non moving trailer that was a full time residence. The office staff of one was very polite and knowledgeable of area. Campground is close to beaches, tourist stuff and shopping. Had a nice fireworks display on the 4th and a potluck dinner if desired. Good place to stay if doing other activities - not much to do at the campground. - dtbriz

Very long, but medium wide, pull through and back-in gravel/grass spaces with no privacy. Interior roads are paved and gravel. The sites are level, except when it rains the weight of RV's can cause depressions in some spaces, without sufficient gravel, that require a leveling device. The park is very well maintained and clean. The adjacent highway is well traveled and noisy, so the best spaces are as far away from it as possible. The bath facilities are old and deteriorating and need updating, but relatively clean. The staff is friendly. Lots of dog walking areas, good utilities, wifi is very good. We did not use the cable or sewer. This is a comfortable, but no frills park. We would stay again. - LoneWolf

We liked this campground because of its location. The Atlantic Coastal waterway and drawbridge is 100 yards in one direction and the Onslow Beach is the same distance in the other. Great location! The registration office staff are friendly and helpful and we had the pick of 1/2 dozen sites. They could be a little longer, but it was no real issue in our 40' motorhome. Another real plus is the NEX mini mart that is next door to the office. Don't think we have seen that anywhere but it is really nice to have that nearby. The wifi is poor so we were unable to connect. If you want a good signal, you have to go near the office to log on. The views and beach are great, the picnic shelters are a plus and this is a place that we will return to. For a military campground, it is a little expensive at $32. That price may affect our return. - rwarner22

Great location for fishing and the beach. Front sites have a nice covered picnic table. The fishing dock on the Intercoastal waterway could use cleaning. The garbage cans were overflowing with trash. Everyone was polite as expected for a military campground . We even saw some emphibios training going on down the beach. - D Maier

This is our 2nd time staying in this park. We had a grassy pullthru that was fairly level. Water pressure and electric were great. There are no trees, so it is hot in the summer. Biggest draw back was the cable was fuzzy and we could barely connect to their wifi. With that siad, we would not hesitate to stay again. - mahill526

We stayed here visiting the beaches in the area. We had a long level, grassy, pull thru site. Water had good pressure, electric was good. Offered several channels of cable. We could not connect to their wifi. The staff was friendly and seasonal residents were also very nice. This campground sits on the White Oak river and offers plenty of fishing and boating opportunities. We would definitely stay again. - mahill526

Yes, $75/nite. Although that is steep, the campground was one of the cleanest, well kept campgrounds we've ever visited. The grass was immaculate, the site was wide and overlooked the White Oak River which was why it was so expensive. Unfortunately, we had to back in which blocked our view from inside, but outside we had a panoramic view. Lots of amenities: huge pool with water slide, concrete pier, boat launch, paved road for walking, great electrical service, etc. Only thing missing was wifi. Our ATT service was strong so it was tolerable for a few days. Apparently, they have been unsuccessful in finding a provider but they've tried. Would highly recommend. - Team Asphalt

This park is now called Harbor Point RV Community. It is right on the water, has spacious and clean sites. It was too windy and cold to kayak but looks like it would be fun. This is a gated community during the night hours. There are a lot of permanent and seasonal RVs here. Verizon in the campground was non-existent. We were told at the office that Verizon turned it's towers over to other providers a couple years ago. Deposits are non-refundable. If you have to cancel consider changing your dates. - Ramblin-Roll

We stayed in the new section for a week. The park is secluded and quiet but only about 15 min drive to the ocean. Food Lion, McDonalds, Hardees about 5-10 min drive. The staff are very friendly and the park has a lot of potential. WiFi in the clubhouse is fast. I would recommend the owners put a picnic table at each site. Fire rings are on each site. All in all a pleasant week. The swimming pool was clean but small. When the new section is completed and full of campers they are going to need a larger or second pool. - Bill Highland Heights Ky

We stayed here for a month while visiting family and friends. This is a very nice park with excellent office personnel. There are a lot of monthly rentals in the park but all of the people were very friendly. There is a nice dock for fishing or just sitting and looking out at the waterway and watching the birds and boats. There is no boat ramp, but there is one very close to the park. We would definitely stay here again when in the area. - Beachlovers

This is the way to truly experience the beach and ocean. Hammocks Beach State Park has a welcome center on the mainland near Swansboro, but most of the park is on Bear Island. You must take a ferry or a personal boat to reach the island. Once on the island, you must hike 1/2 mile across the island and at least 1/8 mile up the beach to reach the first campsite. Eleven individual and two group sites are located in the dunes and three additional sites are only accessible by boat. Site 2 was located right over the primary dune on the beach. It was large enough for two small tents and a tarp to cover the picnic table and very private. There are no fires allowed, so stoves are needed. The restrooms, picnic shelters, and a snack bar are 1/8 mile down the beach. The restrooms and showers were clean for beach use (i.e., some sand on the floor). The showers are turned off during the day while day users are on the island and left something to be desired in terms of heat and pressure. There are also 4 outdoor showers available. The snack bar has cold drinks, ice cream, and snack food. There is also a guarded beach during the summer, but the rest of the beach is open for use. Camping here is not for the casual camper and takes planning, but the nights on the beaches are magical. Watching the moon-rise over the beach was incredible. Swimming on what feels like a private beach was wonderful. Shelling, fishing, and hiking made the trip memorable. If you are looking for a chance to reconnect with nature and to experience the beach in a pristine setting, this is the place for you. - dmaerz

Were assigned to a site in the back of the campground. Could not make one of the turns in my 40 foot motorhome without bending the street sign. Had rained the night before. The grass/dirt site was standing in so much water my rig would probably have gotten stuck. Fortunately, the staff person checked with headquarters and sent us to another sister campground 6 miles away where sites were much better. - mhollis1

Mostly a seasonal park with a few transient spots, located on Bogue Bay/White Oak River. Most units are park models or permanently anchored. Transient sites are manicured grass with a couple paved sites, paved circular road with some gravel interior roads. Three bathhouses, could be cleaner and updated, nice laundry facility. A couple restaurants are within walking distance, Dunkin Donuts across the street. Wi-Fi available at $6/day subscription. Boat slip and ramp. Aircraft noise from Camp Lejune is frequent. - travelin' guy

We stayed here October 1-3, 2010 for the Seafood Festival in Morehead. This is one NICE campground. It is located on the sound side instead of the ocean side but it's just a few minutes away from the public beaches on Emerald Ilse. They offer a wonderful twin boat ramp,large pool, clean bath houses, many activities, cookouts, and real nice facilities.The permanent residents of this campground make you feel right at home. We will definitely be going back. - Dakota2010

2 night min. 2% extra charge for using a credit card on sales over $100. Site was supposedly 50ft-but our 45ft MH with tow bar spilled over onto the site behind us and our mirrors crept out into the road. Not very inviting site, just a lot, no trees/shade, no patio or table. We were ok with that since we spent our time at our daughters home. Over priced for what it is but less than the other parks nearby. Good Verizon signal. Wifi worked well. About 99% are seasonal/long term sites-everyone was friendly. We'd go back because our daughter lives nearby. - Ramblin-Roll

My husband and I camped at Cedar Point 9/29 to 10/2. We camp there every fall and love the facility and have never had any complaints before. This stay was different. There were 2 host campsites. One had a dog that was tied outside barking incessantly. The campground was full and this was the only site with a barking dog. I finally asked him to shut the dog up. After telling me his dog rarely barks he did take the dog in. We left shortly after. Barking dogs are one of the biggest complaints at campgrounds. The second complaint concerns dirty bathrooms. I did talk to the other host on the last day about how dirty the bathrooms were. He became defensive and told me he cleaned them every day picking up trash on the floors. I pointed out 2 gross situations in both mens and women's and he said he must not have noticed them. I explained they existed when we came on the 29th. In the men's someone had a diarrhea experience which was all over the stool. In the women's a woman's tampon removal had touched the front of the stool leaving a blood smear. Both conditions were still there on 10/2 when we left. This is a wonderful facility that needs to be taken care of. Perhaps a different host company would be able to do a better job. - RVlynda

* Price includes $7 for electric and $3 for reservation fee. * Another great National Forest campsite. All sites are paved; minimal leveling required. Lots of trees and shade -- plenty of room for the hamock and screenhouse. No individual water at sites, but potable water available at the dump station. Hosts were visible and attentive. Bathhouse was clean with large, individual showers. Mostly TTs and big rigs -- only saw 2 tents. Hiking trails and boat ramp located 0.5 miles away, within the park. There is a marine airfield nearby, so you will hear planes and "booms" occassionally. Would have given this one a "10" if it had water hookups. - ricks99

This is a National Forest Service campground, so the Senior Pass ensures a 50% discount from the rate of $20/night to $10/night. BUT there is a $7 add-on for the 50 Amp electric service. No water, no sewer. Still a great value! There was plenty of room for our45' big rig to negotiate the interior roads, and the sites were more than long enough. Satellite would work from some sites, but not ours, alas! Great spot for bike riding! We would definitely stay here again. - MerBee

Location, Location, Location. That's the big deal for us at this RV Park. It is right on the Atlantic Ocean. A short walk and you are on the beach. The place is old and spaces are tight. Lots of long-term summer residents. Many are fisher people who haul their tackle and gear out to the beach and spend the morning and evening hours. Friendly folk. The lady who checks you in and runs the place is a dear. Showers and toilets are tight and old, but everything works and the water is good and plentiful. Sewer hookup is the rear of your site and was a long run from our RV port. The nice rustic park. - Livermorered

This is my second review of this campground as it was our second time staying with them. We love the place so this probably will not be my last review of it either! Surf City Family Campground still isn't a place to visit if you're worried about exclusivity or have issues with folks spending the night in their car/truck in order to get an extra day of fishing in. They do an excellent job of managing the facilities despite the seemingly last-minute nature of a lot of their guests, and anyone I've ever had a conversation with while staying there was more than pleasant. Again, it's not a resort - don't expect it to be. You will be relatively close to your neighbors. You probably won't be having a campfire. But remember, you're not tucked into the woods, you're at the beach, so put on your flip-flops, pack a cooler full of beverages (no glass, please!) and enjoy Topsail Island, its beaches and small-town atmosphere. - PirateMonkey

As others have said, if you're looking for a resort-style experience, this is not the campground for you. If you're opposed to seeing other RVs that have some age to them, this is not the campground for you.
However, if you're looking for a quaint, clean park with direct access to the beach, then look no further. What this park lacks in amenities it more than makes up for in charm and relaxation. Fishing poles and flip flops are the order of the day here.
The park itself is relatively small and they do pack folks in tight. Our particular site had a picnic table and room for our awning and that was about it. It's no tighter than your average KOA, but the thing to remember here is that you're here to go to the beach, visit the local tourist traps, eat seafood and generally enjoy everything except your RV. We had ample room to grill and eat, sit outside and chat with neighbors while listening to the waves in the evenings.
The park is primarily flat and sandy but fairly well maintained. Our site was not paved but level and solid enough. There is a game room that contains a few pool tables and an air hockey table. The office contains a small store that has the basic stuff one might expect to see at a campground store. The people here are super friendly, helpful and love nothing more than to sit on the porch and BS for hours. If you need ideas on where to go eat or what to go see, the office is probably the best place to start.
I do realize that $45 per night may not seem like a value to some, especially when one realizes that there's no pool, no dog park, and no playground, but if you've ever spent a week on Topsail Island in an oceanside rental house, you'll immediately realize that $45 per night is a steal. Again, you're here for the beach, not the playground. The real playground is just over the dunes and it's the best playground I could imagine for kids and their parents alike.
Oh, Verizon cell service works just fine here. - PirateMonkey
