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.

Tips for other Campers:

Visit New Bern just a short distance away.

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.

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.

We had to phone for service upon arrival.The manager arrived in about 20 minutes. Small park with gravel RV sites. Over priced at $24 on PA. 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.

Apparently there have been many changes since the last review posting. We were greeted at the entrance and, within the first 24 hours of our stay, the staff was calling us by our first names. It is a new park and there is still a lot of work being done to improve the park. "Resort" doesn't quite fit, but it is a work in progress. The Passport America rate helps and we would definitely return if only to see what more has been done since this visit. We camped at Moonlight Lake RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

There is not anyone to greet you at the park. You just pull into a spot. We didn't see anyone to pay rent to for three days. The park is not well taken care of. The road to your pad is rough and rutted. Your pad is sandy and uneven. The electrical hook-ups look like they are ready to fall apart. In fact, our neighbor had trouble with his electricity and couldn't get help from the office at all. The washing machines don't work properly. Would not stay here again or recommend this park to anyone. We camped at Moonlight Lake RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Rate reflects Passport America. This park is pretty much unattended. You are directed to pick your spot and the owner will catch up with you. This park is in a country setting and the grounds are not maintained. Access to sites is not defined, you just drive over an open area that has very sandy soil with deep ruts. We were told by permanent residents that large rigs have become stuck. During our three days there, no one came to fix this problem. We were the only traveling RV there - all others were permanent. The positive about this park - There are two unisex restrooms, so a person basically has their own bathroom. The restrooms and laundry are newly built and very nice. Also, there are full hookups, including cable TV. This park is good for basically overnighting and not worth paying full price. We camped at Moonlight Lake RV Resort in a Motorhome.
