3 Parks near New Bern, North Carolina

Someone else said this was a work in progress. I think progress has stopped. They are building new cabins when they should be doing more in the rv sites. You must cross a ditch to get into sites and the culverts were not wide enough to make a turn with our coach. They had a storm just shortly before we arrived and it was very soft and tires sunk into ditch. It is just an open field with hookups. Privately owned by a young couple who were very nice. Cable reception was good. - Pennylee

This campground offers the bare minimum. The water pressure and 50 amps were good as was the cable. I had an issue with the sewer connection but I used the hookup at an unused site. There are a few full time residents near the front but the back was very open and quiet. It is a little sandy but there was no other traffic to make it dusty. The office was closed but our paperwork was in the front door box. We did not have the right change so we put all bills in the envelope and left it in the mailbox as directed. Later that evening, the owner knocked on the coach door and returned our 20 cents change. The owners live on the property. We will stay here again when in the area. - Michael47

Campground is a work in progress. Worth the Passport price. Minimal leveling and utilities can be an inconvenient distance. Campground provide 50 to 30 map adapter. New Bern is a short drive with a supermarket even closer. Main problem is contacting owner who is a construction contractor. There was no additional staff. Not a resort but worth the Passport cost. - gumper

I am not sure how this campground was named Neuse River Campground, it is 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 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

This was our first time at this park and it is a very well kept park. The rest rooms and shower rooms are very clean, the lawns are mowed and the whole area is just a must do see. The nature walk I thought was the best I have seen in a long time. The bird watching is fantastic. - Walter Pfiitze

I concur with previous reviewer in all aspects. The campground was quiet and on a small cliff above the sound. We visited in November when there were 5 different sites occupied by bear hunters with their hounds. The hunters and dogs presented no problems. It was kind of nice to hear the hounds baying happily at 4:30 in the morning as they rose to go out for the day. The bathhouse was clean but unheated. The water in the shower is on a timer but the water is nice and hot. Still, showering is a bracing experience in November. The government doesn't have money to keep up the trails and the infrastructure. Our fist site didn't have any juice going to the electric panel. The shower faucet is on a timer to conserve water, but the faucet drips constantly. The host was friendly and our stay was happy. November is good time to avoid coastal bugs. - Hokethecasita

Very nice campground for families who need to get away for a weekend. Campground over priced as are most KOAs. Had no choice but to stay here because of a family event in New Bern. - Mustcamp

We stayed here the week before Memorial Day weekend. Got the last 30 amp pull through site when I made our reservations, since we were leaving on Saturday of Memorial weekend. Site was adequate, but located along main drive into the campground, so had fair amount of traffic. Campground has very clean remote shower rooms and newer main office with store and shower rooms with doored private shower stalls. Campground is on a river and has a fishing dock with boat tie-ups, also a separate fishing pond (no license required). Used this as our base for exploring the New Bern area (our third time touring New Bern). Daily rate varies by season, holiday weekends, weekends. The rate I listed was average daily rate ($41 on weekdays, $55 on Friday, after KOA discount) - BobbyH

Nicest most well run KOA I have ever been to. Great management and staff. We stayed under monthly rate in a fifth wheel. Sites are spacious and far enough from each other. Each site has a fire ring and picnic table. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting to stay in the area. - Money2Burn
