3 Parks near New Bern, North Carolina

I definitely think the work-in-progress has stopped in favor of building more cabins. Campground is an open field with a tiny pond at one end. Most of the sites were occupied by RV units that looked like they were long-term, perhaps area workers or full-timers. There were assorted blankets and other materials tossed over a fence. The place looked untidy and uncared for (except for the cabins). The TV cables were lying on the ground; ours had no connectors on the ends. The 50 amp service was good and the wi-fi was good with some dropouts. The sewer system looked to be mostly on the ground instead of under it. We found the place OK for a one night stop on our way through. The price shown included a Passport America discount, available Sun-Wed nights. I think we'd make other arrangements next time we were in the New Bern area. - Jay Rutherford

Lots of old campers and permanent residents. The staff couldn't be more pleasant and friendly and accommodating. It's basically a gravel and sand mix to park on and a small patch of grass between campers with picnic tables. Hookups are old and in need of updating. The lake is a very small hole in the ground for carp fishing. - seeinsilver

This campground is a work in progress. It is under development and the owners are doing a nice job. The sites are open and level with 50 AMP outlets. You can borrow a 30 AMP adapter if you need one. The campground is the closest one to New Bern and an easy drive. - DXRFLYER

This is a very nice, small campground located in the Neuse River Recreation Area and known as Flanners Beach Campground (highway signs use this name). The park is very clean, has on-site hosts, and good size lots for big rigs. Site 3 was long enough for our 40' big rig and tow with plenty of space all around. Sites are a mix of sand and gravel and level enough that we didn't need to jack the rig. Picnic table and fire pit at each site. Rate reflects electric only. We didn't use the restrooms. Park is set to close for the season on Nov. 30. - DiplomatTraveler

Locally, this is known as Flanners Beach Campground in the Neuse River Recreation Area. We stayed here for four night in the middle of July with another family. They had a driving RV and we were in our pop-up.
The campground is small, 40 sites, but has quite a lot to offer. The sites are spacious and mostly private. They are clean and most are wooded. The small rest room on the north side is older and while it needs some attention, it is clean. The large restroom is clean, well maintained, and accessible. Water spigots are located throughout the loop. There is a dump station available for campers. The south end bathhouse is much nicer than the north end.
The park is very nice. There are hiking and biking trails surrounding the park. A picnic area adjacent to the campground. There is also a beach with swimming/fishing access on the Neuse River. Be warned, the river is very shallow at the beach. We needed to walk out over 1/4 mile to get to water waist deep.
The campground is located off Hwy 70 between New Bern and Havelock. There are many attractions and activities within a 45 minute drive, we enjoyed seeing New Bern, Fort Macon, the NC Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores, some time at the beach, and Beaufort.
Overall, a nice campground for a reasonable rate. - dmaerz

No hookups. Very easy to get in and out in our 38' RV with tow. Sites are widely spaced with trees and shrubs between making it very private. The campground was very clean and in a beautiful natural setting. - User3010

Nice park. We stayed overnight and it worked out fine. Right on the river. KOA's are typically higher priced. My rate was for a back in electric and water only. Lots of activities I.e. Pool, horseshoes, dock, etc. would stay here again if in the area. - Sally Chew

Actually outside New Bern - neat, clean especially for older KOA. Best showers we've seen - looks like owners actually used it because set up was ideal. Just stayed overnight. - KAZIMIRA

Very nice KOA. Clean grounds, very large children's play areas. Has access to a dock and boat ramp on the river directly across from New Bern. Access to the Town itself was very easy. Sites were roomy, easy in and out. The place even had a dog wash on site near the large, fenced dog run. We enjoyed it and will return in the future. - RVorBust
