1 Park near Wanchese, North Carolina
May 2016 - $54.00
Stayed 8 nights. Good campground.
Dirt/gravel roads and sites. All sites back-in perpendicular to campground road (not angled) but no obstructions at all so backing in was not an issue. Reasonably easy to level.
Very good bathhouse/shower. One set of laundry equipment that we did not use.
Most sites seem to be seasonals. Not all the seasonal rigs and their sites were all that well kept but none was what I'd consider dirty or rundown. Few of them occupied during the week, so it was pretty quiet.
Transients given back-in sites along man-made lagoon close to local road. Traffic noise very noticeable during the day; less so after dark but occasional loud trucks were quite noticeable.
Transient sites filled up on the the weekend. On the weekend we were there everyone was well behaved, mostly. Not a problem. But this is not a campground for you if you want separation and isolation and privacy.
Overall, a decent place but it seemed to me to be just a bit less "spiffy" than it appeared on its website. My wife was less concerned about this than I was, but I was not negatively concerned; it's just something I observed.
Nice boardwalk out around the marsh and lagoon. Less bird life than we would have liked. I think the fisherman next to us would have liked more fish in the lagoon than he seemed to be finding?! - Tomseeley

This is a very nice, well landscaped park, but it has absolutely no shade. Short term sites are along a seawall next to a pretty tidal pool. Sites are gravel, but pretty level. The only negative is the cable TV service. At check-in you are provided a converter box which you have to connect to your TV. The instructions are generic, so good luck in figuring out how to do it in your particular unit. It took me two days, two calls to the cable provider's tech assistance, and exchanging the box to finally get it working. (Park staff wasn't any help technically.) Three other neighbors also had problems, so I know it was not just me. How can a park that is modern otherwise have such an antiquated/obsolete cable setup! - Jallench

This campground is in a secluded prime location on Roanoke Island in Manteo. It's within minutes to the outer banks where there is plenty of shopping.... restaurants and salt life. It has all level sites that are grass/gravel.... in the sun.... with zero shade. Utilities are good and in the correct location. Some sites face the pond but are back-in sites The manager lives in her motorhome in the park and is very accommodating. The roads are packed gravel....wide and in good shape. There are some seasonals but the c/g is clean... quiet and neat. The pool is decent but could use an update. The cable TV system is antiquated and you need to rent and install a park owned cable box if you want cable channels. Satellite reception is excellent. The WiFi is annoying.... useless.... and kicks you off every 8-10 minutes.
Overall the c/g is nice and we would visit again in the future. - Don-Deb
