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. We camped at Moonlight Lake RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for the month. Actually we extended our due to the threat of hurricane Joaquin. Park staff were very helpful. Now this is not a 5* place, but there is ample room. Yes, there are a lot of full time folks living here. We found the place to be very quiet. The cabins are nicely done. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here on our way through. We camped at Moonlight Lake RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at Moonlight Lake RV Resort in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Moonlight Lake RV Resort in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Moonlight Lake RV Resort in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Moonlight Lake RV Resort in a Motorhome.

PA price. Okay for one night at that price. Mostly long term. Pot holes on the road in. Back in, close sites. Nobody in the office when we arrive or the next day. Envelope with our site number was waiting for us and we put in our cash and placed in mail slot. Farther from New Bern than we had anticipated. Full hook up. WIFI was pretty good and free. Water pressure weak. We camped at Moonlight Lake RV Resort in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Moonlight Lake RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

I wish I could give this a higher rating because the staff is first rate. While we were on the road the office called us to confirm our reservation and to inquire the approximate time we would arrive and if we had any questions. Also the office was very neat and tidy. The park was quiet and our site was level and the electric was good. But the site were arranged oddly and the lake is simply a big depression in the ground. That being said, this park has potential if the owner has the money and the inclination. We would stay here again, if in the area. We camped at Moonlight Lake RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Very disappointing situation! We made reservations a few weeks ago. We arrived today around 12:30pm and no one was at the office. There was a phone # posted to call so we called and left a message that we were here and wanted to check in. Then we waited for someone to show up or return our call. Other campers told us the owners were gone, but the number was their cell phone so they would likely call us right back. My wife called again in about 1/2 hour: told them our phone number again and that we were here. We waited. After one hour I called, and again explained we wanted to get in and set up. Explained if they could call with a site # we would get in and take care of registration later. Then we waited another hour. Probably much more patience than many would have shown, but we were here already, and other campers kept telling us they were sure owners would show up soon. Finally after two hours, we left and went to another park. Amazing that now, five hours after we initially arrived, we still have never gotten a response. Funny way to run a business! So I guess the lesson is if your going here, make sure you call before you arrive to see if someone might be here to let you get in. We camped at Moonlight Lake RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

The name might raise expectations this campground does not deliver. But for us it was the perfect place to stay for a few nights to explore the New Bern area. For our 16$/night (PA-rate) we got a full hookup site with partial shade, (good) Wi-Fi and cable. Surprisingly quiet at night despite the location right off the road. The owner is very friendly. The campground is pretty much an open field with hookups side by side, so there is no privacy if you have neighbors. The moonlight lake is more a duck pond but the value for money is unbeatable. We don't need any amenities on a campground and if you think alike this is the place for you. We would definitely stay again when in the area. We camped at Moonlight Lake RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This campground is in the owners backyard. Grassy with full hookups. Lake is more of a fire pond. Owner and family very friendly and helpful. If I was passing through this area I would stay again. We camped at Moonlight Lake RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Rate is P/A. Quiet place to park with full hookups. Road is gravel sand, sites are sand and some grass. No activities, small pond for catch and release fishing. Didn't look very inviting. We would stay here again. We camped at Moonlight Lake RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Pretty basic all in a row back-in sites, on grass, took some jockeying to get level. Notice to pick a site and call this number for manager who then came in around 5:00 and did the paperwork. Clean bathroom and shower and laundry. WiFi and cable TV were good. My rate reflected the Passport America discount. Easy stay for one night just passing through. We camped at Moonlight Lake RV Resort in a Motorhome.
