Quiet park with friendly staff, but has electrical issues. When our 'neighbor' was home we barely could pull 15 amps for our 50 amp trailer - we went 2 nights without air conditioning and it was hot...thought the 1st night it was a blown GFI plug on our trailer, but fixed it & everything worked fine until 'neighbor' came home. Probably won't stay here again, sorry. If you must stay here try one of their 'cottages'. We camped at Moonlight Lake RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

The owner of this place is working hard to fix it up and make it a really nice place. As it was when we were there, it was bare bones basic. Perfectly fine, nice size lots, not a bad price, and if all you wanted to do was sleep there while you toured the area, it would be o.k. We camped at Moonlight Lake RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Spent four nights as a last-minute getaway. Nice well-kept park that will continue to get better. Mostly long-termers and snowbirds who are very nice. Although the bathrooms were clean (and modern), there is mildew growing on the grout lines in the showers. This could be easily fixed by a daily spritz with a mild Clorox / water spray. My site didn't have cable, but I didn't need it because I had a great satellite shot. Don't know if other sites had service or if it is a future amenity. The new office / activity center is under construction and looks like it will be great. Roads are sand / gravel, but are well maintained. Manager is helpful and friendly. We loved it here and can't wait to return. We camped at Moonlight Lake RV Resort in a Motorhome.

While New Bern is the main draw for most folks, the wonderful village of Oriental is also just down the road in the opposite direction. Well worth a day for exploration. Our favorite restaurants in New Bern are Morgan's, MJs Grille, and El Cerro Grande. Favorite in Oriental is O-Town Pub.

We were traveling South for the winter and went to New Bern for a 2 night stay to visit family. The KOA in New Bern was full so we opted for Moonlight Lake. Our arrival was little later than we thought, but a man came right out to greet us, he was very nice. Showed us our site and told us the firehouse was just next door and said goodnight. We went to bed and at 3 am an air raid siren started going off, I am including this you tube video so will know what to expect if it goes off. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PYzBUD5S6xo, This siren was 50 feet from our trailer. It went off one more time that night. It has taken me a long time to write this review, because it is very obvious this man cares for the park. We camped at Moonlight Lake RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

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.

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 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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.
