Like other reviewers have posted, all about location and not about value. We camped on Sound side due to concerns about strong winds, just our luck the week we are there, the winds are blowing from mainland over to island instead of from the ocean. 3 of our 6 nights were sleepless due to family getting motion sick from camper rocking, 50 - 60 mph gusts. Campground office staff is friendly and offered to move us, but we chose to stay put in case the winds changed directions. One run in with rude campground worker for not having lights on our bicycles, we were walking them back to our camper after dark, not riding, yet he decided to "give us a warning" since the rules stated no bicycles after dark without lights. Campsites were level but close together. They charge extra for everything: Kids, Dogs, Cable. Our total cost was $117 per night for two adults, two kids, no dogs and no cable. As a family we have decided to not return, the area was beautiful and we enjoyed riding our bikes to most places, but not our favorite area of the country to camp. - Tn22

We were expecting a better campground for the price to stay here, differently didn't feel like we got our monies worth. There is an average size pool and a couple of hottubes, one very small playground and a rundown minigolf course. There is no shade anywhere and you can't use your awning because the wind always blows like crazy. The spots are very close, our picnic table was only about 15 foot from our neighbors sewer hose. The location to the ocean is the only good thing going for this place. There is no swimming access on the sound side just a fishing area. We will not be staying here again, there are better choices in this area. - Skip the hammer jiblet

A very large park located on the ocean. Picked a busy holiday weekend and the place was packed. Sites are a little close especially when its busy and no trees whatsoever. Great facilities and special events like making tie die t-shirts. They had a church service on Sunday where we met several friendly people. Staff was exceptional and park maintenance was outstanding. Many sites to see in the area and good selection of stores and restaurants. - BNicholsWorth

Small campground. Level concrete pads. Beach a short walk over the dunes.
Everyone was very nice and friendly.
Will definitely stay again when in the area. - Rlcjw

Small ocean front park. You must climb up and over a dune to get to the beach, there is no boardwalk or steps, but with that being said I did not see anyone who was not able to conquer the dune. The site was level, no fires permitted in the campground,but with a permit you can have a fire on the beach. The staff was very friendly. I loved this campground and will definitely stay there anytime I visit OBX. - sharonandlarry

Absolutely fantastic campground with easy access to National seashore. Their off season monthly rate was a very reasonable $630 with a $55 electric fee. Cable television is available. Wifi in the campground is very strong. We did have a bit of issues with ATT coverage on some stormy days, but I was able to work consistently the month I was here. Restrooms are very clean, the staff is paying attention without being intrusive and they were very good about allowing us to accept packages. We stayed in site 45 which was fabulous. We were centrally located and could go north or south to see the sites. The city of Rodanthe itself is one of the least populated and I like the wild dunes in Pea Island which is right down the road. I would absolutely return to this campground and give it my highest recommendation. - Lee and Trace
