I took my teenager camping here over a fall weekend. The park is about 40 minutes from First Landing State Park, about 30 minutes from the VA Beach boardwalk, and a little over an hour from Duck, NC. Since we wanted a beach weekend but didn’t plan ahead in time with the reservation, it worked well for us. The campground is clean, well-maintained and family friendly. The spots are close together and both RVs and tents are allowed. There is no alcohol allowed in the park, so most of the noise from other groups was done by 10, but we did hear some sounds from others in the middle of the night and by 7:30 in the morning the kids and dogs at various sites were audible. We could also hear trucks on the road outside the park from time to time, so if you are looking for a quiet and private spot, this isn’t for you. However, for $26/night and being near so many destinations, it’s a good base. The trails at the park are mostly well maintained and marked. The terrain is a mix of hard pack sand, pine needles, and gravel, with little elevation change, so it’s an easy place to enjoy a walk in nature. I didn’t see any otters at Otter Point, but did enjoy lovely scenery and more quiet than at the campground. The staff was friendly and helpful. They were good about wearing masks and there is plenty of signage to remind people about social distancing and other safety measures.

I went their to play disc golf, online they stated they have a 'pro shop' not many decent discs available for sale. The course itself was very wooded and the maps were not great but overall it was a fun course. The hiking trails and other recreational opportunities make it look like a great place to take the entire family.

Stopped in to explore and checkout the campground. Park workers were wonderful and super helpful with hike suggestions and let us even take a quick peak at the campground (closed for the winter). We then headed out on one of the trails that ended at the Northwest River. Chilly but great day... will be back in the Spring to try out the paddle boats.

It's getting worst and worst and worst. Something was happening starting last year, and it certainly ain't as good as it used to be couple years ago. I think the stocking trout quantity dropped significantly, and fewer trouts are stocked. I can tell, and probably can others as well tell the difference. I'm done with it.
