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.
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.
Tips for other Campers:
Good location near the attractions on the north end of OBX.

This is a basic campground with full hook-ups, large sunny, grassy sites with a picnic table and a fire-pit at each site. There is a fishing pier also. We checked out other campgrounds in the area and this is the best by far. It is close to walking trails, the Wright Memorial, restaurants and shoppes. It is also close to Roanoke for the Memorial there. It is a beautiful drive down Cape Hatteras to the light house and the Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum. We would stay her again.

This is a secluded and fairly new campground Located west of the Wright Brothers Memorial. The sites are large with gravel, surrounded by lawn, and level side to side. Features include a small dock on an inlet. The area is quiet except for an occasional fishing boat. The office staff are very helpful. There is no store or pool and few other amenities other than a small playground. The bath house is large and clean. After looking around, OBX appears to be the nicest campground in the north half of the Outer Banks. We will definitely stay here next year. We camped at OBX Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Well maintained grounds and sites, very friendly staff, good-size RV sites, minimal to no shade. Very quiet. Small playground for children. Has a location for launching kayak or canoe onto the sound and a pier for fishing. Bathhouse very clean and showers are excellent. Although the campground itself is not bike friendly (gravel road and no bike lane nearby), there are plenty of bike trails closer toward the main part of town. Campground is on an island on the sound side of the Outer Banks. Daily rate based on the weekly rate of $200/week. Laundry - washer-$1.50; dryer - $1.00. Would definitely stay here again. Much to see and do; recommend staying a week to take advantage of the weekly rate. We camped at OBX Campground in a Motorhome.

I wanted to clarify rates: Rates are $60/day and $300/week for May to September, and $40/day/$200 for October to April. Each site has 15-20A, 30A and 50A outlets, plus water and sewer. Wireless (free) was fairly strong, and had good bandwidth in the evening (when it is frequently poor or non-existent). For example, I quickly downloaded a 2GB Norton 360 update about 10PM. The men’s rest room and showers were particularly clean and nice, and there were plenty of toilets and showers The desk clerk was very helpful and friendly. I stayed here three nights and will stay again. We camped at OBX Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is one of the best camp ground we have been to. Very big rig friendly, full hookups, Wi-Fi best out of all so far, ( 5mb/s steady), extremely large sites with almost double the space behind each one. Clean level sites and quiet environment. Staff nice and helpful, and the campground seems to be relatively new. Close to all the attractions you want to see in the Outer Banks. Nice small seafood stores and restaurants just around the corner. Easy access to and from the beach. Highly recommended. We will definitely come back. Only reasons why I don't give it a 10 is that it has no shade/trees or common amenities like fire ring, pool, etc. Stay there, you will like it a lot. We camped at OBX Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Our first time in this simple yet well situated and pleasant park, and won't be the last. Nothing fancy but everything we needed. Stayed for 8 nights over Thanksgiving period, rate is based on a weekly charge plus the one extra day. Level, gravel sites, quite large, ours backed up to a good size open space bordered by the water. Several people took advantage of that area to give their big dogs some needed play/run time. All services fine, management was friendly, helpful and welcoming. Several rigs like ours on the way south for the winter; others on the back side of the park seemed to be seasonal. About 2 miles west and down a fairly busy two lane road from 158 bypass, easy to get to anything in the area. Turn into a quiet residential street where the residents have placed a few makeshift speed bumps, no big deal and we respect their desire to protect their children and pets. Other than the unseasonably cold weather, we enjoyed our visit! We camped at OBX Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a great campground. The sites are HUGE! Laundry and bath facilities are sparkling clean. The staff go above and beyond. Wi-Fi was excellent. Cable was excellent. Water pressure was great. A previous reviewer complained about the speed reducers into the park. They are NO problem. It's a short drive through a residential section to the park. Hence the speed bumps. I would want them too if I lived on the street with my children. The pictures on their website do not do this campground justice. It is our new go to place when on the Outer Banks.

I give this park a 4, only because it is closely located to many of Kill Devil Hills, Kitty Hawk, and Nags Head sites and activities. Other than that advantage this camp leaves much to be desired . .. particularly when you consider the price of $50 a night, which for the amenities available, is completely off the page. Your introduction to OBX will be the road leading to the office, which is unpaved and sports 3 of the absolute worst "speed bumps" I've ever had the misfortune of driving over. The bumps are to slow you down to 5 miles an hour, which the road itself would not allow much over that speed, even without the bumps. The office is new, with a friendly and helpful attendant, who will assign your camping spot, take your $50 per night and show you where to go on a hand drawn map. Arriving at your site, you will have driven over a pot-holed unpaved road, to back into a site that you will likely be unable to level your rig without the help of blocking. The site will be grassy gravel, which, if it rains, will collect and pool water ankle deep. For your camp fee, you will get nothing but a fishing dock, a picnic table, and, yes, a large site to park your rig. I would not stay here again, unless there was some overwhelming reason to do so. We camped at OBX Campground in a Motorhome.
Would stay here again. From 10 take: -1 no counter and very limited shelf space in bathhouse, -1 no seats in bathhouse, -1 inadequate hooks in bathhouse, -1 fire allowed in fire rings that do not exist, -1 noisy frogs (kidding) +1 night sky = no outside "general" lighting. This new campground will address things they know about. Most rigs probably don't use the bathhouse. Very generous site size, as if they plan to add another set of sites between existing sites in the future. Owner very nice and on top of things. Campground 150 feet from water. We camped at OBX Campground in a Travel Trailer.
Small new RV only campground. Fishing dock into bay, no swimming beach / area. Breezy, good stop off point for Kitty Hawk / Wright Brothers activities- close to the memorial. Sites were big. We camped at OBX Campground in a Travel Trailer.
Open less than a year, and has excellent hook ups, strong WiFi, and cable TV. No shade to speak of except for site number four. Adequate space between sites, and all are back-in sites. Lots of grassy areas for dogs or kids. Very quiet. A little pricey but best campground around and everything works. Some seasonals but all neat. Definitely would stay here again. We camped at OBX Campground in a Motorhome.
New campground that is centrally located to beach and restaurants. Very clean bathrooms/showers. Large grassy area to walk your dog. Lots of space between sites. Friendly staff. We plan to return again in the fall. We camped at OBX Campground in a Travel Trailer.
