Moved to this campground after two nights at Camp Hatteras and due to the cost of Camp Hatteras. Was well worth-while. Price was better and park had some protection from the wind. Back-in sites are a bit difficult but big rigs didn't seemed to have many problems. Good store, cheap laundry and lots of videos to rent. Not as big as the more expensive parks but didn't matter since all have the same access to the beach. Would have stayed longer but needed to head for the mountains. We camped at Ocean Waves Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Sites are close together but adequate. The campground is smaller than the others in the area, and very friendly. We rode our bikes through the other two parks close by and liked Ocean Waves the best of the three, and it was the least expensive. The beach is beautiful! Cable is extra and the free wifi is so slow that it's almost unusable. We camped at Ocean Waves Campground in a Motorhome.

Very nice park, helpful staff, clean facilities, spacious sites. There are rules that are posted by the staff that may seem lengthy, but this is why this is a very nice park at a very reasonable rate for peak season. We camped at Ocean Waves Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Buy your beer, groceries and gas before you leave the mainland. Campground has ice and necessities at the office store. There is a dollar general just south of the campground. Watermans bar and grill also a "must try."

Very friendly and accommodating staff. Our spot was dry even with 17" of rain over the last two weeks. Other sites didn't fare as well but drained quickly. Our site was very close to the ocean, just over the dunes. Cable and Wi-Fi were excellent. We will definitely will stay here again. We camped at Ocean Waves Campground in a Motorhome.

What a lovely family run park. Very clean, level concrete pads, excellent WiFi and cable TV ($3/night extra), small laundry room but only $1. The only problem was heavy rain (tropical storm) and lots of standing water, however, the office worked hard to put you in as dry as possible sites. Of course, being just over 1 sand dune to the beach is the best "amenity". Sites length and width of drive a little small for today's larger RVs, but they have maximized the best they can. We camped at Ocean Waves Campground in a Motorhome.

My Dad and I spent 4 nights there for surf fishing. Had a great time. There are regulars who come every year, and they are the nicest people. Campground is small, but it is right behind the dunes and is very clean. This was my 3rd time staying there. We camped at Ocean Waves Campground in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at Ocean Waves Campground in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Ocean Waves Campground in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Ocean Waves Campground in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Ocean Waves Campground in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Ocean Waves Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We loved this park. The dunes to the beach were about 75 feet from our RV. It is a well kept park and despite what other reviews say, we found the staff friendly and helpful. We will definitely return. We camped at Ocean Waves Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a nice, no frills campground. Short walk from your site to the beach. No open fires are allowed at the campground, but permits to have a campfire on the beach are available at the office. Sites are on the small side, but that is typical for the area. Not much of anything to do in Waves itself except the beach. Closest grocery store is 15 miles south. Nags Head and Kitty Hawk are a 45 minute drive. Some shade at the pool would be nice, maybe add a couple of tables with umbrellas. Great fishing out of Oregon Inlet Fishing Center. We camped at Ocean Waves Campground in a Motorhome.

We loved being at this campground. The access to the beach is just a short walk over the dunes, and we took advantage several times during the days and nights. The cable and wifi were very good. The showers and restrooms were very clean. The site was narrow and short for our 24 ft rig. We were not impressed with the personnel during our stay. The woman in the office was adequate but not friendly or helpful at all. While in this area we found 3 good restaurants: Wattermans, Good Winds, Stingray. We would stay here again. We camped at Ocean Waves Campground in a Travel Trailer.
