First visit here and was very impressed. This is a great campground. Our site was a pull thru deluxe site with brick patio , wrought iron furniture and fire pit. Level and semi shaded site. CATV was good with a large selection. Getting to Campground was easy and navigating in easy also. Friendly helpful staff and well stocked camp store. Food Lion and a pharmacy within 2 miles and downtown New Bern only about 10 mins away. About 15 mins away was mall area with resturants and more stores (Wal-Mart, Target, lowes, ect..) Highly recommend and will return. Great couples or families. We camped at New Bern KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We had a nice concrete pad with a patio, outdoor furniture, and a view of the water. Everything worked well (sewer, water, electrical, cable) and was clean. Pat, the manager and her staff are very friendly and helpful. They patrol the grounds often to keep it looking nice. The laundry room was clean as were the bathrooms. The park is geared towards families with younger children where there is a playground, jump, and a 3 1/2 feet deep pool. We camped at New Bern KOA in a Motorhome.

KOA New Bern is located off US 17 about 3 miles North of the town of New Bern. The staff was very friendly. The facility has a pool, playground and a bouncing bag for children. The pier was a hundred yards from our campsite where you can fish and rent boats. Wi-Fi was offered but not available at our campsite. We camped at New Bern KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a good clean and convenient campground. The best part of the campground is the pier and the dock that look out over a beautiful lake. A great place to relax and watch the sunset after being on the road all day. The restrooms and showers are clean and the grounds are well maintained. We only stayed 1 night and did not use the pool but it looked clean and inviting. There was a little noise from the highway because the campground is right on RT17. The WIFI and cable TV worked well.
I would stay at this campground again if I am in the area. We camped at New Bern KOA in a Motorhome.

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.

This is a nice, laid back and peaceful campground. We loved our large patio site. There's a decent amount of space between the other sites. It's a short walk to the dock/pier and there are swings to sit in to enjoy the view. The kids enjoyed the playground, jumping pillow and basketball court.

We made the short drive over the bridge into historic downtown New Bern and visited the shops and tourist spots. There's an evening ghost walk tour that's more historical than scary but it was enjoyable nonetheless.

We enjoyed our stay at New Bern KOA and would visit again! We camped at New Bern KOA in a Travel Trailer.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
