15 RV Parks near North Topsail Beach, North Carolina

As others have said, if you're looking for a resort-style experience, this is not the campground for you. If you're opposed to seeing other RVs that have some age to them, this is not the campground for you.
However, if you're looking for a quaint, clean park with direct access to the beach, then look no further. What this park lacks in amenities it more than makes up for in charm and relaxation. Fishing poles and flip flops are the order of the day here.
The park itself is relatively small and they do pack folks in tight. Our particular site had a picnic table and room for our awning and that was about it. It's no tighter than your average KOA, but the thing to remember here is that you're here to go to the beach, visit the local tourist traps, eat seafood and generally enjoy everything except your RV. We had ample room to grill and eat, sit outside and chat with neighbors while listening to the waves in the evenings.
The park is primarily flat and sandy but fairly well maintained. Our site was not paved but level and solid enough. There is a game room that contains a few pool tables and an air hockey table. The office contains a small store that has the basic stuff one might expect to see at a campground store. The people here are super friendly, helpful and love nothing more than to sit on the porch and BS for hours. If you need ideas on where to go eat or what to go see, the office is probably the best place to start.
I do realize that $45 per night may not seem like a value to some, especially when one realizes that there's no pool, no dog park, and no playground, but if you've ever spent a week on Topsail Island in an oceanside rental house, you'll immediately realize that $45 per night is a steal. Again, you're here for the beach, not the playground. The real playground is just over the dunes and it's the best playground I could imagine for kids and their parents alike.
Oh, Verizon cell service works just fine here. - PirateMonkey

This campground is on the ocean side which is nice. We were there in the off-season so it was not crowded. Full service and the WI FI worked very well which is not always the case. Our site was sand/grass, sunny/open, and had a picnic table. - sue2

We spent six days here, and selected this campground due to the close proximity to the ocean. We were very pleased. This is not a luxury campground, nor does it advertise itself as one. The "9" rating is comparing this campground to how it is advertised. It you are expecting a resort, this isn't for you. If you want friendly folks, relaxing atmosphere, with the Atlantic Ocean is just a few hundred yards from your camper...this is for you. The owners are very friendly, as are the fellow campers. We are new at the camping lifestyle, so I was surprised to see someone "camping" in his car, but to each his own, I guess. There are quite a few "seasonal" sites here, which I found to be a bonus...since these folks were very knowledgable about the area. The camp store provided us with a few staples that we ran out of, which was very nice, at reasonable prices. Parking is tight, but doable. The staff will help park the trailers if spaces are too tight, which I did not realize until after we had parked. Topsail Island is a great place. Not over populated like so many others. And, it's dog friendly all hours, 365 days of the year. - LMNC

This park is now called Harbor Point RV Community. It is right on the water, has spacious and clean sites. It was too windy and cold to kayak but looks like it would be fun. This is a gated community during the night hours. There are a lot of permanent and seasonal RVs here. Verizon in the campground was non-existent. We were told at the office that Verizon turned it's towers over to other providers a couple years ago. Deposits are non-refundable. If you have to cancel consider changing your dates. - Ramblin-Roll

We stayed in the new section for a week. The park is secluded and quiet but only about 15 min drive to the ocean. Food Lion, McDonalds, Hardees about 5-10 min drive. The staff are very friendly and the park has a lot of potential. WiFi in the clubhouse is fast. I would recommend the owners put a picnic table at each site. Fire rings are on each site. All in all a pleasant week. The swimming pool was clean but small. When the new section is completed and full of campers they are going to need a larger or second pool. - Bill Highland Heights Ky

We stayed here for a month while visiting family and friends. This is a very nice park with excellent office personnel. There are a lot of monthly rentals in the park but all of the people were very friendly. There is a nice dock for fishing or just sitting and looking out at the waterway and watching the birds and boats. There is no boat ramp, but there is one very close to the park. We would definitely stay here again when in the area. - Beachlovers

2 night min. 2% extra charge for using a credit card on sales over $100. Site was supposedly 50ft-but our 45ft MH with tow bar spilled over onto the site behind us and our mirrors crept out into the road. Not very inviting site, just a lot, no trees/shade, no patio or table. We were ok with that since we spent our time at our daughters home. Over priced for what it is but less than the other parks nearby. Good Verizon signal. Wifi worked well. About 99% are seasonal/long term sites-everyone was friendly. We'd go back because our daughter lives nearby. - Ramblin-Roll

We liked this campground because of its location. The Atlantic Coastal waterway and drawbridge is 100 yards in one direction and the Onslow Beach is the same distance in the other. Great location! The registration office staff are friendly and helpful and we had the pick of 1/2 dozen sites. They could be a little longer, but it was no real issue in our 40' motorhome. Another real plus is the NEX mini mart that is next door to the office. Don't think we have seen that anywhere but it is really nice to have that nearby. The wifi is poor so we were unable to connect. If you want a good signal, you have to go near the office to log on. The views and beach are great, the picnic shelters are a plus and this is a place that we will return to. For a military campground, it is a little expensive at $32. That price may affect our return. - rwarner22

Great location for fishing and the beach. Front sites have a nice covered picnic table. The fishing dock on the Intercoastal waterway could use cleaning. The garbage cans were overflowing with trash. Everyone was polite as expected for a military campground . We even saw some emphibios training going on down the beach. - D Maier

This was kind of rustic but more than adequate for an overnight stay. Pricey, at $60/night, but I guess this is a resort area. there were nicer sites with a view of the water, but we were not offered those. Many permanent RVs and trailers and park models scattered around the campground. - MerBee

This park is more for the long term stays. 90% is permanent campers and very trashy. We got to our spot 185 and there was dog poop everywhere. There is a fire ring that we couldn't use because it was too close to the camper next to us. The play ground is right up front in between two roads with nothing to keep the kids from running in front of a car. Two kids ran out in the road after a rabbit, if someone was coming they would have gotten hit. Lots of kids driving around in golf cart with out any adults around. They do have a pool and pool tables but we didn't want to go. All we wanted to do was leave. So we spent the days running around town and coming back to camp and go to bed. Check out on Sunday and they didn't even ask how our stay was, I'm pretty sure they know. Stay away from this place, it's gross. The thing that got me the most is the dog crap. Lot of dogs there. - Davemotes

I am so sorry I booked this place over the campground down the road. It's 90% permanent and of those it's about as hick as it gets. The sites aren't even sites really, grassy areas with hookups. And it's LOUD. Shame being right on the water. If you like mullets, old trailers decorated with various patchwork tarps in a CG with sites that are lumpy slots in the grass, and enjoy things like the Saturday night cruising the circuit in golf carts making enough noise so it's hard to sleep, then this is the place for you. If you have ever dreamed of living in a run down trailer park, with all the horrible clichés come to life that come with it, then this is your place. Otherwise book elsewhere. We actually left here and went to the other campground. Easily the worst placed we have ever camped. - Way2Roll

Park is nice, people are friendly. Reserved a site with full hook up, arrived and no FHU site available. Were offered discount to take site with no sewer-there is no dump site in park. - H & E

Very long, but medium wide, pull through and back-in gravel/grass spaces with no privacy. Interior roads are paved and gravel. The sites are level, except when it rains the weight of RV's can cause depressions in some spaces, without sufficient gravel, that require a leveling device. The park is very well maintained and clean. The adjacent highway is well traveled and noisy, so the best spaces are as far away from it as possible. The bath facilities are old and deteriorating and need updating, but relatively clean. The staff is friendly. Lots of dog walking areas, good utilities, wifi is very good. We did not use the cable or sewer. This is a comfortable, but no frills park. We would stay again. - LoneWolf

I've been here 2 years now. Seen a lot. The location is great for going to near by beaches. The campground is right by the highway, so noise may be an issue. There is no golf course nor a putt putt range as mentioned in web site. Grounds maintenance is kept up well, but not for the individual lots itself. Some lots have wood patios but they are rotted out. Long- termers have done the repairs at their expense. No gravel for camper pad nor for auto, it's all dirt and mud. If you want individualized needs, complaints, or accommodations, you will get resistance from the office. Services are at its worst during the winter months. There is no camp host on duty after hours. Speed limit and pet policies are not reinforced when it comes to dogs. All in all, my monthly rate is affordable for my budget and that's why I stay, its gets much more expensive at other campgrounds in the areas. No shade and mosquitos are very bad. - anonoymous

This is the way to truly experience the beach and ocean. Hammocks Beach State Park has a welcome center on the mainland near Swansboro, but most of the park is on Bear Island. You must take a ferry or a personal boat to reach the island. Once on the island, you must hike 1/2 mile across the island and at least 1/8 mile up the beach to reach the first campsite. Eleven individual and two group sites are located in the dunes and three additional sites are only accessible by boat. Site 2 was located right over the primary dune on the beach. It was large enough for two small tents and a tarp to cover the picnic table and very private. There are no fires allowed, so stoves are needed. The restrooms, picnic shelters, and a snack bar are 1/8 mile down the beach. The restrooms and showers were clean for beach use (i.e., some sand on the floor). The showers are turned off during the day while day users are on the island and left something to be desired in terms of heat and pressure. There are also 4 outdoor showers available. The snack bar has cold drinks, ice cream, and snack food. There is also a guarded beach during the summer, but the rest of the beach is open for use. Camping here is not for the casual camper and takes planning, but the nights on the beaches are magical. Watching the moon-rise over the beach was incredible. Swimming on what feels like a private beach was wonderful. Shelling, fishing, and hiking made the trip memorable. If you are looking for a chance to reconnect with nature and to experience the beach in a pristine setting, this is the place for you. - dmaerz

Were assigned to a site in the back of the campground. Could not make one of the turns in my 40 foot motorhome without bending the street sign. Had rained the night before. The grass/dirt site was standing in so much water my rig would probably have gotten stuck. Fortunately, the staff person checked with headquarters and sent us to another sister campground 6 miles away where sites were much better. - mhollis1

Mostly a seasonal park with a few transient spots, located on Bogue Bay/White Oak River. Most units are park models or permanently anchored. Transient sites are manicured grass with a couple paved sites, paved circular road with some gravel interior roads. Three bathhouses, could be cleaner and updated, nice laundry facility. A couple restaurants are within walking distance, Dunkin Donuts across the street. Wi-Fi available at $6/day subscription. Boat slip and ramp. Aircraft noise from Camp Lejune is frequent. - travelin' guy

We stayed here October 1-3, 2010 for the Seafood Festival in Morehead. This is one NICE campground. It is located on the sound side instead of the ocean side but it's just a few minutes away from the public beaches on Emerald Ilse. They offer a wonderful twin boat ramp,large pool, clean bath houses, many activities, cookouts, and real nice facilities.The permanent residents of this campground make you feel right at home. We will definitely be going back. - Dakota2010
