This campground is nice enough for a short stay on the OBX. It's dry camping with no amenities. There is a bathhouse with cold showers. There is no shade anywhere in the campground. The roads are paved and the sites are paved and level. The sites are long enough to park a 40ft motorhome but very few are long enough to park a 40ft motorhome and your car. We had a lot of rain during our stay but the campground drained fairly well. There were lots of mosquitoes. The campground staff were friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Golden Age Pass $10. This campground has three loops. One is for tents and the other two for anyone including some big RV’s. There are no hookups and the site is paved a little but the rest grass. Sand dunes are all around this campground and one must hike over the dune to reach the beach but it is not far or you can drive your four wheel drive vehicle out using the park road. The bathrooms are clean and presentable. No hot showers just cold showers in a little building to get the salt and sand off you. The rangers are very nice and the campground fills up on most weekends in the summer but not during the week. The sites are not reserve able! Nice stay and we would come back. Bring water though because I don’t know if you would want to drink it unless you boiled it but that was just one persons opinion! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an awful campground. No Utilities, cold water showers, located right on the road, the beach is a long walk away, and it is not even a good beach. The only reason I stayed there was it is the closest campground to Nags Head and Manteo. The worst part was the lack of security. When the ranger on duty leaves, there is absolutely no one in control. No gate, only sporadic patrol, no campground host. Quiet hours are supposed to start at 10 p.m. but there is no enforcement of the rules. People ride through making noise all night and groups have loud parties. A whole group of campers complained to the ranger about a loud drunken party the night before (with air horns and car horns blowing until 3 a.m.) but the offenders were only given a warning and were not even asked to leave. I left earlier than I had intended because I did not feel safe. I plan to complain to the National Parks Service. I will never stay there again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is no place for older folks in a motorhome unless you enjoy dry camping. Motorhomes can only use the "C" loop. Generators cannot be used at night. While we were there, the toilets for that loop were under repair. If you are looking for a beach location, this is "not" it. It's a good 800 yards to the beach up and down dunes. It was so hot while we were there, we gave up 4 prepaid nights and where able to find another campground with electric. We camped here in a Motorhome.
