We stayed at Camp Burson. Beware of site 15. A cherry tree hangs over the site. The site, trailer and awning were covered with cherries and pits. When I hosed off the awning it looking like blood flowing off but it does come off and didn't stain. We have enjoyed staying at Camp Burson. The sites are large and the creek is fun for the kids to play in. I do have a problem with the $5/pet/night charge for pets but it's still cheaper than a private campground.
The park is clean and well maintained. The bathrooms and showers were clean. It was very quiet there. The only problem I had was the site we were given (90). The camper on our awning side's slide outs were into our site. One of the sites behind us had the coach's rear end at our awning. The sites were staggered. When they ran the engine, the exhaust from the coach blew over me as I sat under my awning. I think we just had a bad spot. We would stay again, but in a different campsite.
We enjoyed our stay here. They need to do a better job with bathroom cleaning. There is no visible campground security. While we were here someone was arrested for stealing beer from coolers and going through tents. I don't know if they were a guest or not. There is no shade but I expected that at Hatteras. For a "parking lot" the pull through sites with sewer near the ocean were plenty big. We would stay again but I hope to see some of these issues addressed once the construction is complete.
There are 8 RV sites that are very narrow. Campers with larger slide outs may not be able to use their awning. The utilities are in odd places. The tent sites are pretty private. This could be a great park with some attention to the RV sites.
We used this park as a stop over. The sites are all gravel and our site was level. There was a hard rain during the night and the site drained rather well considering. Our only complaints were that we were not given a Wi-Fi password at check in. By the time I was set up and unhooked, the office staff had left for the night. All in all not a big deal. The other problem was the amount of dog waste on one of the playground areas. You were not able to walk through the area without stepping in it. It appeared as if the grass had been mowed without first cleaning the area. We will stay again but hope the waste issue is solved before we return.
We stayed at this campground alot last year and the two times we have stayed this year, has not been as nice. The staff seem to be going through the motions. The activities were not on the same level as last year. The over all feel of the campground was different. I asked a question of the person manning the check-in desk and was told to find the manager and ask that question. I left a message for the manager to call me and nearly 24 hours later I still hadn't heard from her. The campground was full last year for Labor Day. This year there were several spots available. Maybe I'm not the only one who has seen a change for the worse this year.
We had a concrete slab spot. We had a great time and the campground workers were lots of help. I highly recommend the express check in. We breezed right by the check in lines and were unhooked and set up in no time. I thought that a golf cart was an unnecessary thing but it is almost a necessity. The only drawback was that the campers seemed unfriendly. Possibly since there are so many campers there. We will be back!
We stayed in a deluxe pull thru site. We loved the quiet atmosphere and the space between the sites. I wasn't sure if I was in a KOA or not. The only drawback was the closing of the overpass to get southbound travelers to the park. I didn't reflect that in the rating as they have no control over the issue.
We just returned from a 3 night stay and we had a great time. We typically stay in state parks so we were a little concerned about the crowd at a commercial campground. The sites were closer than a state park but private enough. Our 5 year old had a great time and the park seemed to cater to the kids. They had a live band on Saturday night and a DJ on Sunday. We liked it so much we are parking our camper there for the month of October.
This is our second stay here. We stayed for 6 nights and couldn't ask for anything better. The only reason I gave the park a 9 was the poison oak/ivy around our campsite. Once that's addressed it will truly be a 10. We are considering going back in the fall for another week. There is so much to do and see.
We have stayed here many times this summer. We spend more time in Camp Burson which is outside the park. It is connected to the rest of the park by trails and the road. Camp Burson is as far away from the lake and other amenities as the B campground in the park. One advantage Camp Burson has over the B loop is that it has a swingset. We will stay here many more times.
We had hoped to stay in the new B loop but due to the ceiling falling in the new bath house, we stayed in the older A loop. The sites are not as flat but we had a great stay. We arrived on Saturday and left on Wednesday. After Saturday night we were almost alone in the campground. We would stay here again.
