Dry camping with beautiful views from the higher level campsites. Nice wind on the hill made for comfortable sleeping in mid July. Star gazing was incredible! Warm showers (only cold here) & a dump station would really help. Campground host was really helpful. Took about 15 minutes to walk to the beach - but also got an Off Road Vehiclie ORV permit to drive on the beach. No ground fires allowed. Great places to windsurf in Avon about 15 minutes north of the campground on the bay (Haulover Area. aka Canadian Hole..). Mosquitos at dark but not overwhelming- this was a nice surprise. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We always enjoy this campground. This is roughing it without water or electrical at the site. You can run your generator until 9 pm. We fill the water tanks before we get in and then just add another 5 gallons each day we are here. We don't run the generator that much, and if you get a campsite at the higher level, you get a better sea breeze and view. The National Park now requires a permit to drive on the beach and it costs $50.00 for a week! $120.00 for a year. Most of the park people are nice. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great dry camping near beach. Some sites are on the road and some are tucked back in the trees. A few have view of ocean beyond the dunes. Tent campers will find more privacy than big rigs. Clean bathrooms have running water. No water or electric at sites. Showers are primitive, cold water only. Dump station is few miles away at other NPS camp ground, Cape Point. But scenery is MUCH more interesting at Frisco. Cape Point is like camping on a soccer field. Driving permitted on beach (until 10pm) and access is right outside the park. Well stocked convenience/tackle store with free air for tires located 0.5 mile from beach access. Not to be confused with Frisco Woods (which is also nice, but very different). We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Cost with pass $10 a night. Out site P29 near a boardwalk to the beach and the bathrooms. There are at least 127 sites at this campground and it fills up Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends but most other times you can get a site. There are no reservations here only first come first serve. This is a very pretty campground that is really spread out among the dunes with ground coverage for privacy. No hot showers but there are cold and the bathrooms are adequate and there are quite a few of them spread throughout the campground. The sites on the outer loop up on the hill are stunning – you can see the Ocean in the distance from them but we still preferred the sites near the boardwalk. This campground is in driving distance of Cape Hatteras Visitor Center, Lighthouse and Museum and the walking ranger talks and hikes through that area. It is also near the village of Hatteras where you catch a free ferry to Ocracoke Island. We loved our two night stay here even though it was windy but where is it not windy on the Outer Banks! There is another NP campground in the area Cape Point but it does not open until the weekend before Memorial Weekend. We definitely would return to this campground – it’s stunning! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a National Park Service campground located on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Although there are not any hookups, the view of the ocean that some of the sites offer makes this a worthwhile stop. The sites are of medium size, but there is lots of space between sites. The campground offers a boardwalk with access to the beach. The weather was great, but watch out for mosquitoes. Unlike most NPS campgrounds this one offers a basic shower so you can clean up after spending the day in the ocean. The campground is about 20 minutes from the Cape Hatteras lighthouse. Reservations are not available, and weren't necessary as the campground was only 1/3 full. Be sure to check out the local fish markets for fresh local fish and take in a national park program.
