Stayed here five nights in August. You have a truly beautiful and very wide sand beach just a short walk from your site. This part was amazing. Indeed, this is why you are coming here....the access to such a nice beach. Sure it costs more to camp here, but whatever you're paying, its all relative. Get on that beach, swim... More

This campground is truly the best of the best in RV camping resorts. The sites are well laid out with good spacing, level concrete pads, and great functioning full hookups. It is unique in that it fronts not only the ocean but the Pamilco Sound with breathtaking views in both areas. We camped in an ocean front site which provides... More

This is the best of the best in RV resorts. Pricey during season but well worth it. Sites are big & very accommodating. Love that you can walk to the ocean (Atlantic) or to the interior waterways. Lots to do! Pool is great (have both outdoor & indoor). Staff is great. Planned to stay 2 nights & decided to extend... More

Definently not a world class rv resort as we have stayed at a few. This is definently a nice place to stay and one of the nicest in outerbanks. They have a security gate, a small camp store, pool outdoor pool is nice and maintained, gameroom, wifi, nice rec center and both bay and ocean access. A Couple of things... More

We also have been disappointed with people not cleaning up after their pets. We offer a spacious dog park with free doggie bags and also state in our rules that pets need to be cleaned up after. Even though we don't own the beach area, our maintenance crew patrols and picks up trash. This season has been the worst for... More

I have stayed at quite a few campgrounds and this ranks in the top 5. Beautiful & clean grounds and the staff is nice & friendly. The store was nicely stocked with different things. We will definitely be back!

Not sure how Good Sam came up with their ratings of 10/10/9.5. Maybe comparing them to what is around (not a lot)??? We have been camping many years and all the times we have ever showed up early (an hour before normal check in) regardless if it was a beach destination or not; we have NEVER been charged an early...

Check in time is 1pm and and check out is 11am. Customers are advised of this and the early arrival fee at the time of reservation. The early arrival fee (peak season only) is available to customers who want to use the facilities prior to the 1 pm check in time. Extra charges are a common practice at destination resorts....

We have been coming to this campground since 2011, with the exception of 2015. If you are looking for a place to just relax and not do much, this is the place to go! There isn't much around in the trivillages area and the restaurants in the area aren't very spectacular. But, if you want a place to just camp... More

Our family has been coming here to camp in our pop up since 2008 and will find some place else from now on.

I was very disheartened when I saw this post. I value long term patronage and want to address the concerns stated. This season, Camp Hatteras leased the marina area to an independent jet ski business, with the understanding that all Camp Hatteras guests would have the same access as always. This customer came to me yesterday, clearly upset, with the... More

We were traveling with 2 teenage girls and 9 yo son. We were expecting a "World class RV Resort" as per their website and with that mindset we were not impressed. Had I been expecting a nice campground at the beach I would have been impressed. The camp site has 2 good size pools, hot tub, mini golf, shuffle board,... More
