What a wonderful 12 days at Holiday Trav-L Park Resort! My husband and I just returned from spending our vacation with Holiday Trav-l. The resort staff, no matter the job they were doing, always had a smile on their face. The restrooms were clean. The music on Saturday night was great - we loved listening to Tim Elliott and Coastline. The Sunday morning worship service was uplifting - loved the praising of God through music and God's word. Thank you Holiday Trav-L Park Resort!

The staff at this campground was very friendly and area was very clean.The campsites were about the size one would expect at a beach campground. Paved roadways, some grass on sites. Access to the beach is relatively easy. Their WiFi service was poor. Obviously not large enough for the number of people trying to use the service. Water connections were a nightmare. My connection was inside a bucket about a foot deep in the ground. I literally had to lie on the ground to make the connection. There has to be a better way.

I just returned from my first trip to HTP in Emerald Isle. Originally reserved for 3 nights, but loved the place so much that we extended 2 more nights! Everyone on staff was professional, helpful, and incredibly NICE. The grounds were kept immaculate and the bathhouses kept very clean. HTP was totally booked, but the place was exceptionally quiet!! We had to change sites due to our impromptu extension, but the staff moved our camper for us using their tractor and leveled it, too! Easy access to the beach (and yes, everyone was social distancing on the beach). Can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: Some red sites have a view of the ocean due to a slight rise in grade.

This park was recommended to me by a relative who stayed there out of necessity a few years ago. Every year for my wife's birthday we go camping somewhere near the beach, for a change we decided to go to Emerald Isle. In 15 years of RV camping I have not been to a better destination. When I made the reservation the spot picked for me was one of the best in the campground for a large toy hauler, on a hill with a view of the ocean from my deck. As cramped as this park is, it was pretty easy to get in and out. Whoever makes hiring decisions at HTP is an excellent judge of character. From the first person I met to the last they are all perfectly suited to the resort field. I especially want to mention Hannah and Matt, and the gentleman who helped me get out. The park is conspicuously clean, extremely well maintained, and is very convenient to everything. The owner seems omnipresent, and really cares about the park. I hope HTP will keep transitional sites well into the future as I would love to return.

We have been bring our Family to The Holiday Trav-L-Park for six years, we absolutely love it. Extremely Family Friendly. Play Ground for the children, kids riding bikes, skate boards and Hover Boards on the paved roads around the grounds, Beautiful Pool, gated entrance where they greet you and show you to your spot. For first timers, the staff is always eager to help in anyway they can. Most of the staff has been there long enough to know how to help. The park is just on the other side of the Dunes from the ocean. The staff at HTP are the nicest people we've ever met. The cleanliness of the grounds is impeccable, only camp ground where you do not see huge trash Bends on every corner. They pick up your trash twice a day at your site. We have made this our get away spot. This was the first Campground we used where we bought our RV and we have compared every place to this HTP. Ronnie (owner) has worked hard over the past 44 years to make this a great family campground and it shows. Thank you HTP❤ Ronnie and Janice Winchester
