Yes, they honor PA, but only on a limited basis. No weekends or holidays. First night full price, second night half price. They also have a 10% military discount. No Good Sam. Park is very tight and minimally maintained. Office has limited hours. You may have to call when you arrive. You will be met and parked. Located on St Rt 133 by the airport just north of the Coastal Waterway bridge. Little or no noise from the airport.
One significant feature is they have Blazing Fast free WIFI. - CharlieB

Small park with rigs close together. $22 a night with Passport America. Not a great park if you want to sit outside and kick back, but a great location to visit Wilmington and various beaches. If you are in the very front of the park, there will be some road noise. Friendly and helpful staff. - Nibot

This park is a work in progress. The owners are super nice and more than accomodating and there are some things about the park that are great...the bath house is fully tiled and roomy. The office/bath house looks to be virtually new. There is a pool under construction that will be available in the spring of 2015. It is only about 2 miles to the beach and there are grocery and other type of stores and restuarants nearby. The campsites are quite roomy and his power is 15/30/50. There are quite a number of what appear to be permanents although they are not globbed up with add-on rooms and all that. The sites are sand (it is the beach) with grass. Most sites have a picnic table. It was raining when we arrived and we sort-of plowed in getting into the site...may have been soft because of the rain..and my coach is very heavy. There is no shrubbery to provide separation between the sites...but the sites are large. The roads in the campground are sand with a smattering of gravel. All in all, the park has good possibilities. Hopefully, the park will continue its improvements because the town really needs a good campground. - Tcamperman

The absolute worst run down RV park in the country. Traveled in a 40" Motorhome and was told by the Manager that we would be real happy here shaded lots, right by the ocean etc. Upon arriving I knew we were in for a surprise. The dirt road off the highway full of ruts and we had been calling the RV "PARK" all day no answer. Looked like something right off of the sound set of "Deliverance". The majority of the toothless residents outside of their dilapidated TRAILERS drinking beer and half drunk. They were all gawking as we pulled in The only thing missing was the kid with the banjo. What a sorry excuse for an RV park. Looked at the website and thought it would be fine. Had to drive 2 more hours to find suitable quarters for the night in Myrtle Beach. DO NOT VISIT THIS DUMP. - Rick and vik

Like other have said its is a tough one to rate. So let me say if you want a resort this is NOT the place for you, if you want pavement this is not the place for you, if you want space this is definitely not the place for you. If you do not like to track sand in your RV, this is not the place for you
It has water sewer and electric, a few sites have 50 amp,power is adequate at 118 volts, it has approximately 25 sites located in parking lot style on sand there have been little to no up grades in 40 years, it has broken down and worn out picnic table with worn wood roof over them on each site, your neighbors sewer hose is pretty close to your able, it probably started out as a fishing spot, we are one of two motor homes here, most are trailers. The camp ground provides nothing, no play ground, cable TV, they only accept cash or check for payment, it does have a greasy spoon restaurant on site and a very large fishing pier.
Now for the good, people are all very friendly, if you love the beach, walking on the 8 miles or so of pristine beach, hearing the waves crashing, fishing, surfing and hanging out in a low key place. This may be just the place for you. It is located right on the beach, just a very short walk as in less than 200 feet.
For ourselves we love it and for the beach part of it and the people I give it a 10. This is the only campground the island, I cannot believe the owners have not sold out to developers. we will definitely come back. - Camping USA

Like others have stated this is a hard park to rate. Very old and tired. Surroundings could use trash pickup. Just general trash in every nook throughout the park and near the small store/cafe. $1 to walk the pier. Picnic tables and attached covers, some decent but old, others falling down. Full sun and AC finds it hard to keep up with 95+ days we camped. No awning out, wind was horrible. Could barely open camper door and we had to open it for our child who couldn't hang onto it. Typical greasy spoon cafe. Camp store very sparse but small general store just a very short walk down the sidewalk along with nice ice cream store and surf shop. No amenities at all. But as others stated if you are here for the beach it is direct ocean front access. Beach nice but bit trashy. Hubby says he would definitely go back because surf fishing interests him here, but I am on the fence about a return trip. We had fun but I have stayed at other beachfront CG's that for the small price increase you get tons of amenities and beachfront. - Karen2378

Very hard to rate this park. My wife and I loved it! The park and the surrounding area is stuck back in the 60s. The cg. is tired and built for smaller rigs but has real character. There is no pool, mini golf, paved sites or anything else you would look for in an ocean campground-BUT if you love the ocean, a very laid back atmosphere and fishing, this is the place! Our trailer is 40' and took up what used to be two sites when the average trailer was much smaller. We did have 50 amp but there is a limited number of spots that have 50 amp. The rest are 30 amp. There were a few permanent or seasonal trailers there but they were nicely kept. It is very tight if you have one of the sites in the middle of the rows. Not everyone's cup of tea, but if you are looking for a quiet ocean cg without all the glitz-check this one out! - SouthernNights

This is a wonderful campground, and in our estimation the best value for $ spent. Campsites are roomy, although some have hook-ups on the "wrong side." This was not a problem as we carry plenty of extensions. Best of all: fantastic free WiFi!!! It worked flawlessly during our entire 14 day stay. Staff was extremely pleasant. US Mail/UPS/FedEx directly to Reception Office is a big plus for full-timers. Easy walk to public beach access. Bathhouse and toilets are a bit dated, and although clean, are in need of an upgrade.
If coming from the south you might wish to consider the Southport - Ft Fisher Ferry. The ferry accommodates RVs, is very affordable, and cuts driving time as you bypass the city of Wilmington.
We will happily stay here again. - CO2RV

First time here. I made reservations for 4 nights for full hookups, 50 amps. When we arrived, the staff in reception told us not to hook up our septic because the lift station wasn't working. We discovered later that it hadn't worked in months. Now that's not full hookups, is it? We still had to pay the full rate. They suggested we use the camp restrooms and gave us a site near the showers. They were individual rooms, a bit dated but cleaned daily (we saw the cleaning staff) and definitely old. As someone who likes showering and using the restroom in my own rig, it was a bit inconvenient for us not to be able to connect to septic.
Our site was a pull in. The electric and water were on the correct side, the septic was in the front (wrong) side. Pad was concrete. Roads were paved. Site was long and very level. No wifi so we used our jetpack. A couple sites were shady but most were open to the sky. No dogpark but lots of acreage to walk the dogs.
It's a small open base. No Exchange or commissary. The area is quiet, the beach is across the street. I'd stay here again but will make sure we can hook up to septic next time. - Flippitti

What a surprise this place was. It is about 2 miles south of Kure Beach. The first impression you get is from the brightly painted WWII quarters that are now guest houses. They look pretty beat up on the outside, but are reportedly okay inside (and there is a program to replace them). Further on there is a small RV park on the right side. If you continue on to the museum you will find the registration building and some more sites. Only one site by the registration building is 50 amp. The others in the RV park have 30 amp. In all cases the utilities are in some odd places. You need to have sewer, water, and electric extensions to place your RV where you would want it. The registration building has a gift shop. The pool and bar & grill were still closed (open Memorial day). All utilities are good. Cable is great. WiFi is almost non-existent. For WiFi, go park next to the rec center, or building 122. There is no dog run, but there are acres of places to walk your dog. There is a boat launch and fishing pier. If you have AT&T the service is very bad. Canoes, bikes, and golf carts are for rent. Our recommendation is go drive to Southport, and take the ferry over the river ($15). You do not have to unhook, and they take class A's. If you take the ferry, just head north on "the" road, and Fort Fisher is only about half a mile. As others have said, this is a hidden gem. Recommend you call for reservations. - okdiver

This campground is grass sites with nothing fancy. It is close to town and to several beaches. We did not see management the three days we spent here. Everything was done by phone, and they were very pleasant. Campground offers very attractive monthly rates. The grass needed mowing and the interior road had some pot holes but overall a good place to stay. We would stay here again. - Al & Joan

This is a well cared for park. Close to town and the ocean. People were friendly and helpful. Will stay again. - lady Jane
Jul 2006 - $25.00
Small and clean campground. Friendly and family run. Good for a stopover on the way north or south on Hwy 17. Located just south of Wilmington and north of Myrtle Beach. All sites have water, electric, sewer and cable. Only downside is no bathrooms or shower house, so must be self contained. We'll stop by again if traveling this way and need an overnight stay. Just minutes from stores and from Holden Beach. - busyteach

Nice park if you have pets. Would have rated the park better if it had cable. Antenna reception is limited at best. Still nice park. - giezerglide
Jul 2009 - $45.00
Very friendly campsite. Many, many seasonal campers. Waterfront is on intercoastal. Beach access is short drive. Very convenient for intercoastal fishing or beach fishing. Campground has boat access to intercoastal. Office is only opened a few hours each morning, so contacting for reservations or check-in is sporadic. Pool is very refreshing and clean. Bathrooms are clean, but not much privacy or soap and towels at sinks. Tent camping is same price as full hookups, which seems that they prefer not to have any tenters. Due to my desire to fish, and kids desire to swim in a pool, we will be back. - rustytac

An older small campground, with waterfront sites right on an ocean inlet. Very friendly. - vtchris

This is a gem! We paid $15 per night with a senior discount - from out of state with no other charges. Very unusual for a state park in other states. The CG has no hookups - at least now. During our visit they were renovating approximately 15 sites. 5 of the sites have been turned into 2 room cabins with electric. 10 of the sites have been fully improved with full hook ups. Get your reservation in soon as these are outstanding sites in an outstanding location. They look like these sites will be ready by Memorial Day 2016. All the full hook sites are back in and can accommodate large rigs. All the sites in the campground are very sapcious and private. All are wooded with lots of shade. Restrooms were in reasonably good condition and showers were good. We stayed in site 62 close to the bathroom. It was very large and private. All sites are pretty much sand and leaf and tree litter. All had table and fire pit. Most sites are back ins. Reason for the 8 rating is that we noticed that due to tree placement it is difficult to get your rig in far enough so that door and awning are actually in the campsite. We managed to angle the motorhome and were able to get the awning tucked between two trees with an inch to spare each side. It was a great site. Most campers were tenting. Very quiet campground with little activity during the week. Full on the weekend. Great access to the beaches. Definitely will return. - travlinphoolz

This is a nice clean park with lots of room and trails. It is only a few blocks from the public beach access and has many walking trails. We stayed 2 nights and enjoyed ourselves. If you're looking for more of a resort type camping experience try the campground about a mile away. - Splizz

We were able find a few available sites that would accommodate our 38' rig. Granted, off season. We chose site 9, which we could actually pull straight through. If you don't reserve in advance, just drive through campground, look for an unoccupied site that has a green tag. We did this with the co-pilot checking the reservation web site simultaneously to find a spot that was not reserved at all during our intended stay. System involves selecting a site, grabbing the green tag off the site marker and driving to Marina/campground office to reserve and pay. You can drive a 38-40' with toad through the campground and if you can't find anything, you can move on. I would not recommend reserving a site other than site 9 if you are 38' or larger, as that's the only one I can vouch for. Many other sites claim to be 40' or more in length, but may be difficult if not impossible to get in to with a big rig. Some other sites will work, but I didn't take inventory. Great value for the money. No hook ups but plenty of water spigots and 2 dumps. Generators permitted to run from 7 am - 11 pm. Out of courtesy for others, we didn't push the boundaries on that. Very short drive to beaches and Historic Wilmington. Constantly patrolled. Campground is hard locked all night, but rangers available on call if emergency exit needed. Just don't plan on a late night out on the town! - problemchild
