When we arrived it was super late and the winds were crazy. If you don't have a durable tent don't go. They are very easy going and didn't make us check in and pay the rest of our bill until the following day. The spots to camp are quite small but we made due. The staff is very friendly (even...

There is no hot water in the women's bathroom which is not big enough to accommodate everyone without forming a queue in the morning. There is only some watered down handsoap provided. One would think that at $40 per night being collected from a full campground, they could afford a decent bottle of soap and some hot water. We had... More

Off the beaten track campsite but much cheaper and better if you like a chilled out, quiet, close to the water and easy access campsite. The facilities are great - especially the outside showers & they were always clean and not busy. There are water sports equipment for hire too. Highly recommend. Theres also a really good restaurant next door... More

It was off season so there was only one other person besides us at the campground. It was on the beach which had gorgeous sunset views. Due to it being off season, it was very quiet, we felt secluded which was great; better than hearing a lot of loud people. It was kind of cold for camping conditions but still... More

I loved this place, but I'm into the offbeat and interesting. I've traveled a lot on a budgey and have done a lot of adventurous things in my life, so I've learned to be flexible. I'm a 65 year old grandmother who camps by herself. The $25.00 a night (I have a little teardrop) pricetag was extremely helpful. I went... More

Upon arrival I found the facility to stand up to the reviews. Staff was very polite and helpful. There are a handful of campers that stay there frequently and there was a very welcoming feel from everyone. The campground is like sleeping in your families back yard on the sound! There are no game rooms or swimming pools. It is... More

Let me start by saying that I was thrilled when I found this campground. Never having visited the Outer Banks before, I wanted my first experience to be fun and memborable. SO, when I saw the reviews of Rodanthe Watersports and Campground, I was encouraged that I had found a great spot. I called to make reservations and verified that... More

I found the campground on this site so I had a pretty good idea of what to expect. It is small and further from the beach than I expected; but overall it fit my needs perfectly. The site was clean and since I booked well in advance, I was able to nab a premium space away from the dumpster and... More

I am seriously thinking of staying here again with my family, the next time we go to the Outer Banks. You can get $5 off coupons if you mention that you saw their ad somewhere, like the magnet on the cash register at the coffee-house across the street, for example. At most campsites on the islands you cannot reserve, but... More

We were thrilled to see our beautiful waterfront location at the campsite. The staff are friendly and helpful. It's a very compact campground, and the sites do have water and electricity if you need it. We have a sturdy 6 man tent, but never camped this close to open water. We didn't sleep much on the first night, due to... More
