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. We camped at Camp Hatteras RV Resort & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Nice place to ride bicycles to various local shops and a couple of restaurants nearby. Lisa's Pizzeria is a must visit.

This is a nice campground with level concrete pads. But for $100 a night after Good Sam discount I expected more. Charge for every little thing....extra for kids, dog, cable, etc. This has to be one of the most expensive campgrounds I ever stayed at. Very little amenities at this campground. The bathroom reminds me of going to summer camp as a kid...cement blocks, cement floors, and plywood doors on the stalls. We even spent a day next door at another park because their facilities/pool is awesome. Too expensive. We camped at Camp Hatteras RV Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

This is all about location and not value for your money.

You can't beat the convenience to the beach with access at the back of the campground. The spaciousness of the sites is typical for the beach, narrow, but we could extend our awning and slides without a problem. The pools were clean and there is a lot for the kids to do. I did notice the voltage level on my on my smart meter getting into unsafe territory while there. It was frequently around 108v, which while technically safe, is a bit low for my comfort. I did test power in an empty site and found the same results. I'm not sure if we would stay there again. If we did, it would be off-season to avoid the high daily rates.

Stayed here for 4 nights following a stint in Disney. If you want the Beach and Pool, this is the spot (although very pricey). Evenings are probably the campgrounds best attribute, as the ocean sounds and cool air is quite enjoyable. Sites don't have any shade, you are directly on top of the camper to your right, left and behind. No privacy. Pool is nice, but small. Weekdays offer zero activities for children. Walking distance from a couple nice restaurants and fishery (which sells fresh or steamed pots of seafood).

I took a drive through the KOA just a football field south and I gotta admit, it appears much nicer especially for those with children and it is substaintially cheaper. My next trip will be headed to the KOA, although this wasn't a bad spot, just not worth the price tag! We camped at Camp Hatteras RV Resort & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at Camp Hatteras RV Resort & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Camp Hatteras RV Resort & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is a nice campground with level concrete pads and sites on both the ocean and sound sides. But for $70/night during the off-season, I expect reasonably reliable wifi service, and they were unable to deliver. And there are add-on charges, as well. I don't mind paying an extra $3 per day for cable. But an extra $3 per day for a pet is nothing but a money-grab. It costs the campground nothing for me to have my dog there.

Very large clean park. Hardly anyone there when we stayed in September. Constant winds due to being right on the ocean and sound. WiFi signal was hit & miss. Mostly nice grass between spacious sites. Unless you go for the beach and/ocean or to explore the Outer Banks there's not much else there. We camped at Camp Hatteras RV Resort & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Overall this is a very nice campground. Cape Hatteras features no shade, lots of wind and sand, and high humidity, for which you can't fault the campground. All sites have concrete pads. Roads are paved. With no vegetation but grass, there is nothing to screen sites to create any kind of privacy. Restrooms were clean and the showers worked well. Laundry was clean and functional. It was quiet at night. Security was good on the ocean side but non-existent on the sound side. None of the sites truly have an ocean view because of the intervening dunes, but you can hear the crashing waves better if you are closer to the ocean. Price is for Coast to Coast.

Oceanfront sites are large, level, and great water pressure. WiFi strong. Price reflects OBX discount. Due to early season not all bath houses were open. Park clean and maintained, our site was 80' from ocean. Very pleasant staff. We camped at Camp Hatteras RV Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.

If you are a water and sand individual. this park might be for you. We camped as part of a camping club event. I thought the sites were a little to close. We kept our rear blinds closed all the time so as not to be looking in another campers rear window. The wind blew continuously and at times the only solution to all the rocking was to run the slides in on the camper. I have to admit that the facility was clean. Showers were clean as was the restrooms. The majority of the sites do not have a water view because of the direction they are aligned. The most disturbing issue was the non-camping fisherman. This park is located on both sides of the road. One side has a gate requiring access codes. The other is open to anyone who wants to drive through and locals use the access to fish. They do not exactly care if you are camped on the side or not. Utilities for the camper were strangely split. Water was completely at the front of the site while electric and sewer very near the back. This made positioning the camper a little challenging. Luckily I carry several extra feet of water hose. Sites were paved as were the interior roads. Not as level as they look though. We camped at Camp Hatteras RV Resort & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a nice campground with wide streets. The sites are concrete but very narrow. The sites have concrete patios and picnic tables. The WIFI was reliable and fairly fast. We did not use the amenities, but noticed several activities for kids. We camped at Camp Hatteras RV Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.

Rate is for an oceanfront site with 15% Outer Banks (OBX) Getaway Card discount. This was our fourth stay at this campground in the past two years, our latest in the year, and this is my second review of this campground. The OBX is truly preparing to hibernate for the winter. There were not many establishments open, and it seemed many of those that were were preparing to close for the winter. Having fewer than 20 campers at Camp Hatteras' 400-site campground felt weird. Nevertheless, the weather for our particular extended weekend was fabulous! Sunny days in the high 60s and low 70s. It's a shame you can't count on that weather every year during November. I've upgraded my rating for the campground to a "9" based on the fact they have converted to city water. Gone is the salty taste of their previous water system. I'll give them a "10" when they no longer charge to use the cable system. Otherwise, unless you want to talk about updating and upgrading the office/clubhouse/pool house to compete with the KOA's new post-Irene behemoth next door, there really isn't much to improve on, and certainly nothing to complain about. We will continue to choose this campground as our OBX destination for the foreseeable future. We camped at Camp Hatteras RV Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.
