Rude check-in staff. The rest of the crew seems nice. Forget the oceanview sites, all you see are dunes and you can see them from anywhere in the camp. Sites were OK sized and level. Cement pads were good. Not a lick of shade anywhere. Back-in ONLY. There is very little in the immediate area, so be prepared to drive or bring your own. The 'world class' claim is a joke. I have stayed in far better places far less expensive with more around them to do. Pool was closed due to weather, understood. But the indoor pool too? I was unaware. A word of caution to the disabled, there are few local business that have ramps. Most businesses have a few steps up to keep them out of storm surge and they have all been grandfathered for ADA. Be prepared to sit in the car a lot. We camped at Camp Hatteras RV Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.

Excellent park but only stayed there because everyone else was full on the weekend. Would have stayed longer than two nights except for the price. Wide open, no shade and windy. But right on the beach and didn't expect any more than that. Had a nice stay. Beach and sound were extremely accessible from anywhere in the park. Outdoor pool was almost as warm as the hot tub. That's good for the outdoor pool but bad for the hot tub. Super beach just over the dune. We camped at Camp Hatteras RV Resort & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Large RV park right on the Atlantic Ocean. Some sites face the Atlantic and they are the ones to get. Great views. Very windy but the beach is terrific. Kids loved it there. We camped at Camp Hatteras RV Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.

My husband and I stayed here . The campground is oceanfront with the sound across the street which has additional campsites. The sites were skinny, but we had no one next to us for most of our stay which was nice. We used the pools, inside and out, and the Jacuzzi, which were all clean. We also played the 9-hole mini-golf course and played a game of regular pool in the small game room. It is far from everything (which I knew before we left) - over 30 miles to Nags Head for general shopping, although there is a Dollar General down the block and other small stores. There were a few nice restaurants nearby to eat. It was a nice relaxing vacation. We camped at Camp Hatteras RV Resort & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The rate reflects C2C and we stayed on the sound side which was very windy, but it was the first week of May. There are a number of sites close to the water and the views are incredible. Our water heater ruptured near the end of our stay and we had to use the shower facilities which were very clean and comfortable. We will be back next year. We stayed at Camp Hatteras in a motorhome.

Waves, NC is situated well south of the Kitty Hawk and Kill Devil Hills which means major grocery stores are 15 to 20 miles away, but this is a spectacular destination.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.
