We had one of the new deluxe patio sites. We enjoyed being closer to the pool. The site had plenty of room and we would request that site in the future. As always we had a great time and were sorry to leave. We camped at Cape Hatteras KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Gave this park a 7 cause there is a lot to do here; so much is new, including playground and new sites with cement pads and grass laid. This is going to be a nice resort with many different levels of accommodation, and the water is east and west just a few hundred steps. We were only here overnight and it was windy, cold, and rainy. They "tried us out" on one of the new cement pad sites so we were further from the beach but that was OK as we were not going to the beach anyway. Close enough to walk to several restaurants, and since we didn't want to unhook the toad for the night, it was great to have a pull-through. Not all campgrounds have this option. If we are back this way, we will certainly consider this park at which to stay. We camped at Cape Hatteras KOA in a Motorhome.

Rate reflects KOA 10% Membership discount and taxes. This is our 3rd stay at this KOA, and it won’t be our last. We love it here off season. A beautiful beach is only steps over the dunes accessible by wooden walkways. Sites are sand and gravel – we have never had one that wasn’t level. There was a torrential downpour during our stay, our site got flooded and we had to move, so probably a good idea to request a site that does not flood when reserving. The bathhouses are immaculate with large private bathrooms with a shower. Our dog loves it that he can go to the beach, and that there is a small dog park where he can be off leash. The Camp Store is very well stocked, even off season , with reasonable prices. The staff is welcoming and helpful. The Wi-Fi worked well for us. We camped at Cape Hatteras KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This is a big KOA on the ocean in Cape Hatteras, but if you think you'll be able to see the surf from your rig, think again. Most sites, even those closest to the beach, are on the shore side of a high dune, so the beach is a short walk, but not visible. Sites are sand and gravel and ours wasn't level. (I'm not sure where a previous reviewer saw concrete pads. Maybe under the sand, but not at our site.) During our stay the Wi-Fi never connected to the web. Restrooms are individual full baths. This park was virtually destroyed a year ago by Sandy, and the rebuilt version is very nice. Sites are wide with reasonable space in between. Pool/spa is terrific and there's an on-site restaurant which will deliver to your site. We camped at Cape Hatteras KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Park was very nice. Nice big sites with concrete pads and easy hook-ups. Office staff very friendly and helpful. External and internal pool and hot tub was a very nice addition. Beach was nice and very easy to access. Not very crowded during Mid- October. Like it better that the KOA down the street. We camped at Cape Hatteras KOA in a Motorhome.

We stayed here 3 years ago and it was very nice so we decide to return. We found an almost new campground - they must have been wiped out by Irene . The price is very high and they even had the nerve to charge a extra 5.00 for my dog . I spent a long day at the beach and came back to find a nasty note taped to my coach door saying to come to office right away . When I handed the person at the desk the note she very abruptly told me that I was supposed to check out . I then showed her my receipt showing her I was paid in full for 3 days . The response was not apologies, it was a very dirty look with a nasty response of we are very busy and must have made a mistake . This place is now very high priced and clearly has no idea about customer service. We will not be returning to the Cape Hatteras KOA . We camped at Cape Hatteras KOA in a Motorhome.

We stayed here in June of 2013, right in the middle of Tropical Storm Andrea. Restrooms were very clean and campground staff very friendly. We have stayed here in the past and would stay here again. We camped at Cape Hatteras KOA in a Motorhome.

This has been our favorite KOA park by far. It is essentially new due to rebuild after hurricane damage. Pool and amenities are clean. Had a back in site at dunes that was very nice. Can't see ocean from site, but can definitely hear it. Waterfront sites have covered picnic shelters and covered swings facing ocean. Only bathrooms we went in were next to beach access and they were clean enough for beach bathroom. It rained off and on our first day and almost the entire first night. Some roads held water but I didn't see any sites with standing water. We caught a little sewage smell for a brief while on second night that we think was coming from bathhouse vent? A little pricey as we are coming to expect with KOA but we haven't been let down by the quality yet. Will come back again and it's worth the extra cost to be waterfront.

We love this campground. We stayed for a week and had a great time. They have really fun planned activities or you can just use the amenities there. The beach is a very short walk and so is the pool. They have a great dog run and the new building is huge with a cafe and a huge store. We had a problem with our camper the first night and the maintenance people came out and did all they could to help us. The KOA workers came to check on us to make sure we got the help we need. The pool is very nice and the bathrooms were clean for the most part. It was not the campgrounds fault, but

people just need to clean up after themselves. We will definitely be coming back. We camped at Cape Hatteras KOA in a Tent Trailer.

KOA Cape Hatteras suffered major damage from Hurricane Irene in August 2011, but they have recovered well, rebuilding and actually improving. It’s an expensive place to stay, however everything works well – electricity, sewer, water, cable and a secured Internet – and the staff is friendly and helpful. They have built a new walkway which makes going to the beach over the dunes an easy trip. The bathhouses have been renovated – the one near our site (322) actually has large individual bathrooms with a vanity, shower, and a toilet in each. Be sure to ask how their “on demand” water system works so you will be assured hot water for your entire shower. The laundry is modern and efficient. We love the small off-leash enclosure for our dog. There is a new pool, which we did not use, but it looked nice. KOA Cape Hatteras will always definitely our choice each time we visit the Outer Banks. We camped at Cape Hatteras KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This park is still recovering from last year's hurricane, but is almost back to normal. They rebuilt a very nice pool and some nice looking cabins. The RV sites remain much like they were previously - sand/gravel/mud and a bit uneven. Given that, this park is WAY overpriced for what it offers. We stayed here just one night because we decided to extend our OBX trip by one day and the campground to the south couldn't extend our stay. The KOA staff was very helpful in accommodating my request for a pull through for one night. I was shocked when I checked in and I had to pay $5 per dog for one night (I had 4 on this trip, as I was dog-sitting an extra). So my total for one night was $114! Given that the sites are dirt and mud, we don't use the bathhouses, there is no wi-fi at the site, the cafe was closed Monday and Tuesday, the mosquitoes were horrendous, and I brought my own dog bags, I am not sure what that $114 was getting me. I will say the new ramps over the dunes are nice and the new bathhouses appeared nice, but short of that, you would be much better off to look further south for a better deal and nicer sites.

Having stayed at all three campgrounds in the Waves area, I would say as far as camping facilities, this is the 3rd best. But as far as recreational amenities, it is the best. While Wi-Fi is available by office/store/cafe/pool area, it is not at sites. Although the price is a little high for a patch of sand/dirt/grass (no paved pads like other 2), I would stay here over Camp Hatteras if the other park is not available, when I travel to Hatteras Island again.

We camped at the Cape Hatteras KOA for 1 week. The staff was extremely courteous and helpful. After a long drive from Virginia battling severe storm after storm, we were welcomed into the campground by a helpful gentleman on a golf cart who backed us into our site and told us to check-in when we got settled...very nice touch! The pool is modern, huge, clean, and well stocked with modern chairs and tables. The pirate playground, complete with ship, wheel, and cannons is nice. The kids also enjoyed the large bouncer (think trampoline shaped like a whale's back. The Summer Shiners, who ran the activities for the kids, were also a lot of fun. On average, there are 3 to 4 planned activities a day for the kids/families, plus fitness activities for the adults. The wooden walkover to the beach provides easy access, although the beach was much narrower than we are used to (we camp yearly at Assateague State Park, MD), and the ocean was extremely rough. The sites were decent sized and mostly level. The bath house facilities were modern. Although the floors tend to get covered with sand, I still considered them to be acceptably clean. Plan on taking full advantage of the facilities and activities if you stay this far south in the Outer Banks, as there are just a few restaurants and shops in the immediate area.

We enjoy our week at this campground every summer.The owners are really putting a lot of time and money into rebuilding after Hurricane Irene. There are many changes including a number of bungalow type rental units and a really nice new large pool. More things will change by next season we were told. We always stay in the area nearest the beach. The new walkway makes transiting the sand dune much easier.We will definitely be returning. We camped at Cape Hatteras KOA in a Travel Trailer.
