4 RV Parks near Nags Head, North Carolina
May 2017 - $7.00
Most National Park campgrounds have potable water fills and dump stations at their entrance, or inside the campground. The three Cape Hatteras campgrounds we visited decided to break with this pattern and place theirs at undisclosed locations, and not necessarily near the campgrounds. (Potable water is available from spigots throughout each campground, but I have been told those are not to be used for filling fresh water tanks.) Oregon Inlet was less than 1/3 full when we visited in early May. We chose the largest site available, it was almost long enough to accommodate our 35 ft. 5th wheel and 23 ft. tow vehicle. To fill our tank, we had to go south of the campground to a marina on the opposite side of the highway where there was a potable water spigot and dump station. While the station's features were labelled, there were no directional signs to guide you to it, nor was it noted on the literature provided upon check-in. The Ranger (maybe he was a volunteer) who checked us in provided very vague instructions for finding it. - JackSchmotzer

Loved this campground as a place to visit the outer banks. It is dry camping, so come prepared. Sand spurs are everywhere...BUT...it is steps from the wild Atlantic and convenient to historical sites both north and south. Pick your site carefully if you have a large unit. Our 33' and jeep just barely fit. - tom&kathryn

This is one of four NP campgrounds on the outer banks of NC. This is my least favorite of the outer banks campgrounds yet the bathroom was clean and the rangers very nice and informative like the other NPS campgrounds. It needs upgrading and they are working on the restrooms in some of the loops hopefully in operation by Memorial Day. There is no privacy between sites but this campground is near a lighthouse, marina, fishing pier and a few dunes away from the ocean. The beach is not as nice as Ocracoke or the Frisco campground beaches. All sites do have a picnic table and grills but no hookups. No fires are allowed except on the beach and no reservations. - gsnakehill

Our rate included a $10/night discount for staying 4 nights or more. This quiet park is on a small private brackish lake where you can see smaller fish from the seawall. The sites that back up to the seawall have a great view! Wifi was excellent. OTA TV reception is very poor. Only a couple of TV stations come in. The very clean bathrooms & showers are in an elevated building (with a handicap ramp). Water/electric/sewer hookups are very good. Roads & sites are not paved. The single washer & dryer worked well ($1.50 each). We had an issue with our space (being next to 3 small dogs) & the manager/owner worked hard to get us a space that was better for us. We like it here and will return. - R&S

This s a newer campground with modern hookups in very good condition. It's along the road to the very small town of Wanchese, NC, so very little road noise. Rate is $62 a nite if staying 1-3 nights, $52 a night for 4+ nights. - JackSchmotzer

We were here for 5 nights. We did not use the bath house, but did check out the facilities and they were clean, although small. We did try to use the laundry room which is essentially a closet with a washer and dryer, coin-operated. It was out of order the day we tried.
The campground is situated around a quarter circle on the sound (not ocean) with beautiful views, but also with pretty strong winds at times. You can see crab and fish but no toe-dipping since the seawall is about 5' high. There is a pier at the far end of the campground, as well as a picnic shelter and pool.
The grounds were clean. The sites were dirt and grass with a picnic table. The hookups worked well although the cable hookup is a little tricky...you get a cable box and some instructions that may or may not work without calling the company help line. We got only a few public channels with our air antenna.
There is a camp host on site if you need help with anything. About half or more of the sites are permanent, but the nice waterfront spots are saved for short-term visitors. - Carolina Travelers

Very well maintained and spread out RV park convenient to Nags Head and the beach. Plenty of room at each site. Situated on the water near the Wright Brothers memorial. I got food Satelite reception. We stayed in April. - brianb131

This was an OK park, but very overpriced relative to the amenities and the season. We were there in May (pre-peak season) and I thought that the nightly rate, with no discounting, was quite high. It was a gravel and grass site, and got pretty muddy when it rained. The cable was antiquated and required that we hook up their converter box .... not an easy task in a Class A motorhome with lots of sophisticated electronics installed. Only wanted the cable to watch Stanley Cup playoffs, as there were very few OTA channels and we scaled back our satellite plan to bare bones. Oh well .... we survived! Overall, we found this area of the Outer Banks to be crowded, commercialized, and few nice campground options. We liked the Waves area much more. I would not stay here again. - MerBee

This small, secluded park is off the main drag offering protection from the wind, close proximity to an inlet, and quiet camping. It is close to the main tourist draw: the Wright Brothers National Memorial; and the main summer getaway draw: the Atlantic Ocean. The Outer Banks is loaded with commercial enterprises to assist travelers who are here briefly or long term. Park sites are spacious and mostly level. Staff is friendly and helpful. Wifi is adequate. Laundry facilities are not: two washers (one not working) and two driers. No cable tv, but plenty of open sky for satellite reception on most sites-especially the eastern sites . We enjoyed our stay here. - Roger H.

I gave it a rating of 4 because of the lack of bathrooms and the postage sized sites, but we were right next to the beach! When I say postage sized sites, I mean our camper barely fit with the slides out. The neighbors parked their car in front of my picnic table because they didn't have room, so I had to partially block the next site over with my truck. The caretaker is extremely nice, (helps you back in the camper and makes sure you have everything you need). We were on site #3, and were literally 100 yds from the beach. Cross Rt12, and you're there. We went down for my friend's wedding in Duck, 8 miles North, and pretty much only slept at the camper. I had never been to the Outer Banks before and enjoyed the stay. If it weren't for the beach being so close, I would have not liked it. I do have to say that it is a very quiet and very clean campground. It was nice walking the beach on your way back to the camper to help digest. The surf was up, and playing in the waves is always fun. The beach is dog friendly, and they had a blast too... Just clean up after them, PLEASE. If all you want is a place to sleep, then this is the place to go!
Lastly, bring Windex and extra paper towels... You will need them to clean the salt off your windows and mirrors when you leave. Yes, we were that close to the beach... - Bob Mac

Just because you are close to the water does not mean that you can over charge.....just to be at the beach. Was there for 3 nights for a family visit....Very small sites....small means that your canopy almost touches the rv next to you when open. I hated this place, but if you stay on the Soundside in the summer you get eat up with mosquitoes!!!!!!!!!!!!!! - Donna Breda

Very, very tight, on soft unpacked sand, almost impossible to level our coach. Our stabilizer jacks and blocks sink into the soft sand. Bring a shovel to get level. Wi-Fi was almost non-existent. - g peter
