This park is overpriced for what you get. The sites are ample sized but mostly dirt and grass. We had to constantly sweep sand out of our RV. Utilities are adequate and the location is OK, but not near any beach access. We stayed for 3 nights which was far too long. We camped at OBX Campground in a Motorhome.

Good location in the middle of the Outer Banks making visiting the north and south ends of the island doable. Turning down the entry street was telling as it was potholed and dusty gravel. When you arrive in the park its more of the same without the potholes.
We had a site on the end with a great view over the water. All services were up to spec. Fortunately satellite reception was good (no trees) since they charge $20 for a cable box rental. This fee applies the same whether you stay 1 night or 30 and since we were only there 2 nights we didn't need to get it.
All in all it seems as though this was the best choice in the area. If you drive 40 miles south towards Cape Hatteras there are a couple parks with good ocean access. We camped at OBX Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed a weekend at OBX Campground towards the end of the "Peak" Season for the Outer Banks. The reservation was made by phone and was easy enough. The check in was after hours and they had a nice package with all the information we needed at the office. The sites are long enough for our 31' TT and tow vehicle attached. They all appear to be back in but with plenty of room, in fact, there is enough room for another site in between the sites. Our site was gravel, level with a picnic table and full hookups towards the rear corner of the camper. Our site had a spectacular view of the river and was plenty private. It was quiet and well maintained by the friendly owners who were very gracious and even promptly returned our call after hours for check-in instructions. We will definitely stay again, though the price was a bit steep for the few amenities that we would not use, it was worth it for the location, peace, and quiet. We camped at OBX Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Nice wide gravel sites with plenty of grass around. A well maintained campground. Interior roads are gravel and can be dusty. Two washers and dryers with reasonable price. The rate shown was based on the weekly rate. We camped at OBX Campground in a Motorhome.

Great campground for visiting the Outer Banks. The campground is located behind the Wright Brothers memorial and just a short ride from the beach. The owners are friendly and helpful. The only negative is there is no swimming pool. We camped at OBX Campground in a Motorhome.

Management no where to be seen. Large dogs running loose and attacking smaller dogs. Very dusty. 1/2 mile of dirt road to get to the park, and all dirt or gravel interior roads and sites. Long term residents, particularly, drive too fast, endangering campers and children, as well as creating clouds of dust. Website would imply that this is a resort. Far from it. Look elsewhere on the OBX. We camped at OBX Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice quiet campground in the Colington area of Kitty Hawk. We stayed here in July and again in August. Bathhouse is large and very clean with AC/Heat. We only live an hour away from OBX and sometimes we don't want to drive all the way to Hatteras and this is the perfect in-between campground. We camped at OBX Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is a fairly small campground (about 48 sites) set back from the road a bit so it was pretty quiet. It had a nice pond and a pier that went out over Collington Creek. The small road that takes you to the campground from the main road goes right by the Wright Brothers National Memorial (which is what we came to see). Our back-in site (#26) was gravel, level, good hookups and had a picnic table. There was plenty of space between sites. Some sites may have had some shade but ours did not (we were right by the small playground). The showers/bathrooms were very nice, very clean and the small laundry was good too. The hosts were nice but didn't show up until after 9am. They allowed packages/mail to be sent there, but you had to ask for them. The WiFi seemed fair (we were close to the office) but we didn't use it; Verizon signal was very good. The location for all-things-around Kitty Hawk, Nags Head and Cape Hatteras National Seashore was excellent. We would stay here again. We camped at OBX Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed at OBX for a week. The campground only has 48 sites and was full on the weekends. The sites are very wide with plenty of room between each site. Very quiet campground. The staff was very friendly and helpful. OBX is a great place to stay when in the outer banks. We camped at OBX Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed at the end of their off season, so we got 7 nights for the price of 5, which made our nightly rate $28 and change. Sites are graveled and level, and there is ample space between sites. We had a nice water view out our window. Electric voltage was strong at all times and water pressure and quality were good. It's far enough out of town to be quiet, but close enough to be convenient to shopping. Cable TV is offered, but requires renting a cable box. Their information says they have WiFi, but sitting in our MH, we were unable to see their network. We didn't try attempting from outside or at the office. There are picnic tables at all sites. No trees among the campsites, but the campground is surrounded by trees on its perimeter. We camped at OBX Campground in a Motorhome.

There's a Walmart Super Center, plus multiple Food Lion and Harris Teeter Stores. All the usual auto parts stores, Lowes, Home Depot, and Ace Hardware. Best gas prices were at 7-Eleven.

This campground is literally next door to the Wright Brothers National Memorial, which is definitely a must do.

The rate reflects the weekly rate over the Winter.

The campsites are very spacious. The bathhouse is very nice and very clean. The laundry facility is basic: just two washer and dryers.

There a nice dock with access to the sound. Rumor has it you can crab from the dock, but we didn't try. We did see many deer in the park.

This is great park at a rate that is extremely competitive compared to the other parks in the area. We consider this to be the best value in OBX based on the others parks we saw. We camped at OBX Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This campground is roomy, clean, quiet and conveniently located to Northern OBX sights, with spacious sites. However, it is very pricey for the limited amenities, and you have to pay extra for a cable box. Getting into the CG is rather precarious since the entrance road is narrow, bumpy and unpaved. One nice thing is the lovely office building with friendly and helpful staff. Having stayed there on 2 separate occasions, we have used different sites, of which the ones in the back are huge. The rate for this campground is high at $60 considering that you only get a picnic table on your large back-in only site. There is a small fishing dock also. There are no walking trails or bike paths and nothing is within walking distance. The main road to the CG road is curvy and narrow. Overall, this CG is a better choice than the poorly maintained and crowded CGs on OBX. We camped at OBX Campground in a Travel Trailer.

CG is close to Wright Brothers Memorial NPS, Kitty Hawk and northern OBX. It is a short drive to Roanoke Island where travelers can enjoy the Elizabethan Gardens, The Lost Colony play, 1776 restaurant, Fort Raleigh NHS and the numerous shops. Great seafood can be found in the fishing village of Wanchese.

This is a small CG with few amenities but it is immaculate and pleasant. Every site is full hook-up with 30 and 50 amps. Kill Devil Hills is a good location for exploring the Outer Banks and there are many attractions and restaurants nearby. Because this CG has no pool etc it does not attract families which is nice for those of us traveling without young kids. There is one small playground. There are a few well-maintained seasonals. This was an excellent place to stay for a few nights. We camped at OBX Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a very quiet and pleasant campground and it was the first time we have stayed there. We stayed a week (weekly rate) for a family wedding in Duck. It was a little pricey but the area doesn't have many options. We spent very little time there and didn't care about the amenities, which were few. The sites are large and level. Our particular site was very large. We were on the back of the loop so there was a lot of grass behind us which extended to the water. The office people were very friendly and accommodating. A small inlet next to the campground dock leads to a nondescript crab company where we bought a half-dozen large, live, beautiful soft-shells cheaper than we had seen anywhere in the area. We will definitely stay there again. We camped at OBX Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

There is a small restaurant (Salt Box Café) on Colington Road next to the crab company, and even though the food was good, it had zero ambiance and it was not worth the price. The Colington Café, half way back to Croatan Highway, is a much better choice for dinner, and our favorite. And, of course, the Wright Brothers Museum is on the corner of Colington Road, which is a must-see.

OBX campground gave us some good and some bad. The sites are larger than other campgrounds in this area and the price is resonable for Outer Banks. Gravel roads and mostly gravel sites. Utilities were good but there is a charge for a cable box so we just used our satellite. The park is clean and well maintained. There are several sites that have that "permanent"look but they are well cared for. The wifi was good at our spot near the office.

The only issue I have is the site they assigned us to. I said earlier mostly gravel sites. When I called to make reservations,there was much discussion on their end of the phone about did they have a site for our 40' MH. They finally decided we could have site 22 for the requested 4 nights. Upon arrival we proceeded to site 22 and found a gravel pad for the MH with a sandpit for a patio. Across the street are two empty sites that would easily accommodate our rig with a gravel pad and nice green grass - no sand. So I'm thinking those must be reserved for people coming in later. After 3 days they are still empty and meanwhile we continue to try and keep sand out of our rig. I just don't understand why they would do this. Be sure and take look at your site and ask questions before you pay. We camped at OBX Campground in a Motorhome.
