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. We camped at New Bern KOA in a Motorhome.

I have visited this campground multiple times. My stepdad lives here and I love it. The staff is friendly, cabins are clean, restrooms are clean, grounds are kept well manicured! We camped at New Bern KOA in a Cabin.

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. We camped at New Bern KOA in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at New Bern KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Catfishing off the dock is a great night-time activity. Newbern had plenty of stores and sights to see.

This is our first stay at this campground. We have a 35' travel trailer with slides and we had no problem navigating the campground roads. We stayed during Value Kard Weekend in site # 42 ( FHU ). This site has a concrete patio, table with chairs and an umbrella. The sites are plenty long for your rig and a tow vehicle. Our site was near the Neuse River side and the pier. The pier gives you access to the Neuse River for some fishing or boating. This campground is not a large one but very well kept. The campground is located directly off HWY 17 and a short drive from the HWY 70 interchange at the New Bern waterfront. The staff were very friendly and easy to deal with. Overall, we plan to come back. We camped at New Bern KOA in a Travel Trailer.

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) We camped at New Bern KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Campground is only 10 minutes from downtown historic New Bern. There is a new Food Lion about 3.3 miles from the campground (ask for directions at camp store).

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. We camped at New Bern KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

River access for kayaking is better down the road at the county ramp. There is a grassy bank in addition to a concrete ramp.

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. We camped at New Bern KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

New Bern is 5 miles away but there is a grocery store 2 miles away.

First, this is a typical, older KOA with close together sites. They have to look for a big rig site for you. The campground is a good destination park if you have children; there is plenty to do at this KOA. The interior roads are packed gravel and dusty. We stayed here in a large rig and would stay here again if passing through the area. We camped at New Bern KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate is for deluxe patio site with KOA Kard discount. We love this camp ground and the city. We were escorted to our site which was under one of the few large oak trees on the grounds. I asked our escort about satellite reception and was told that he had seen many motor homes with the dish up, so he assumed that it was OK. I wish I had asked for a different site. Not only did we lose satellite every time the wind blew, we were bombarded with acorns as well. The cable is OK and free, but I've been spoiled with DVR service. I found out that our tripod wiring didn't work, so I also got a new project from the trip as well. We camped at New Bern KOA in a Motorhome.

Camped in a 35 foot rig. Site 18 is easy access pull-through, level, sand with modest grass patch. There is no shade. Staff is very friendly. Did not use, or look at, pool or laundry, and bath houses. Book exchange, DVD library, inside board games, miniature golf, playground, dock at Neuse River, lawn swings. Destination campground for young families. Convenient to New Bern. Quiet at night. We camped at New Bern KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed just for 1 night on the road. Nice location on the river and great that it is relatively close to downtown, but--as I think is the problem with most KOAs--the sites are too darn close together! You can almost listen to the conversation of the couple in the next site. Patio sites have the same space, just a paved "median" instead of grass, and patio furniture instead of a wooden picnic table. We had a pull-through, not paved but level. The campground looked nice enough, little lake in the center with a fountain. Cabins arranged on the outside, and a nice walk with fishing dock on the river. They appeared to rent kayaks and paddle boats. Didn't use the restrooms but the rest of the park appeared neat so I'm sure it would have been OK. Would stay again when passing through. We camped at New Bern KOA in a Motorhome.

People that work at the campground are all very nice and helpful. Interior roads are dirt/gravel but in good condition. The sites are level, gravel with grass between sites. There are several different "grades" of campsites. Some sites are bigger and nicer than others. All of the sites are very close together, making eating and sitting outside not great. They are able to manage big rigs. Confirm the size of the site before going. We did not spend much time at the campground so we did not care that ours was small. Although we do not camp with kids, this seems like it would be a nice campground for children. Good satellite reception; also very good Verizon cell phone signal. We camped at New Bern KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Staff was very friendly and helpful in getting parked. The park is typical of an older KOA in layout. The only real issue was with the roads needing some gravel and general grounds care. It was easy to see that in rain the park would be a little sloppy. The park was easy to access and if we pass through New Bern again, I'd certainly consider this park again. The bathhouse was clean, but dated and could use a little updating. We camped at New Bern KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here for two days and really enjoyed our stay. The staff was very helpful and easy to work with. Our site was located next to the pond and it was on the small side, but we had full hookups including cable TV. The WiFi was spotty, but it worked. It was raining the entire time we stayed, but the campground looked well maintained. There was an occasional train, but it was not disruptive. Would I recommend this park? Yes. Would we come back? Yes We camped at New Bern KOA in a Motorhome.
