2 Parks near Waves, North Carolina

The campground was very nice. Club house was clean, pools were clean. The new dog park is AWESOME!! Plenty of room for even large dogs to run. I think it was 100' x 60'. Roadways and site pads were very good. Not very big sites but nice. Did not use the restrooms. My one real complaint is that I made reservations 8 months in advance and when I arrived (totally my fault) and checked in I forgot to ask for my Good Sams discount. I went back up a few days later and was told that I had to ask for it when I checked in or I didn't get it. They will not ask if you have a discount card and they will not refund it now because it was too late. That was a $70+ mistake on my part. Some dumpsters are very close to the sites which is great for access but the smell can get ripe and they come at 6:30 AM to dump them. Wakes you up and quiet time is until 8:00 AM. The internet and cable TV are terrible and you have to pay 3 bucks a day for cable. Won't do that again.The beach is great! Large and room enough for everybody. When we were there most days it was very windy so we couldn't put out the awning and shade is non existent. We had a beach front site and you can't see the water but that is to be expected because of beach erosion and flooding protection. We will return next year. - Camper BV

Had reservations 3 months in advance at another CC down the road that was highly recommended (Labor Day weekend). Drove 600 miles only to find out "a mistake was made" Stopped in here on our way back from that other CC-was told they had space. Was very excited to just have 2 sites for the family (traveling in pairs). Our son was very happy with this choice versus the other CC any ways. Well maintained grass, level parking pads. Hookups are different-you will need a greater than 25 ft water hose for sure. Looks to be an older CC-but well maintained. The Mini-golf looked like it had been updated (free). Enjoyed the use of that several times. Husband and son took advantage of the game room-played pool($). I didn't personally check out the swimming pools-but my sister said they were nice. Mostly enjoyed the beach and local tourist stuff. I felt like the sites were adequately spaced compared to other beach front CC we've stayed at. Will definitely go back. The CC staff that we had dealings with were EXCELLENT. Bath houses need updating-but were essentially clean. Very busy Labor Day weekend. - n2camping

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

This CC came highly recommended by a friend. Made reservations 3 months in advance for the Labor Day holiday. Received email confirmation for 2 sites. Drove 600+miles to be told only one site for one night! Manager/owner stated I'm sorry I'll get to the bottom of this-but I have no other sites. Did not stay or use any of the facilities because they made a "mistake" with out reservations. - n2camping

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

Met up with several other full-timers who were there for a month. Campground was right on the ocean separated by a sand dune. That was great! Our site was closest to the ocean and too windy. Not sure if we would stay there again, because quiet hours are from 11 pm to 7 am but they allow trash trucks to come by and loudly empty all the dumpsters at 5:30 am. If we stayed there again we would get a site a little further from the beach. - Sleeps Two
