Adventure Bound Campground
Reviewed May 26, 2009

Do you enjoy sleeping? If the answer is yes, then stay very far away from the Adventure Bound Campground. They have 3 roaming and 1 caged peacocks, which on first arrival seemed quaint. But we quickly learned that peacocks are LOUD!

Imagine three separate campers randomly banging their pots and pans together all night long and you get the idea.

The first night one of the two roaming peacocks decided to roost in the trees right above our tent and screech at the other two birds all through the night. The other campers on the other side of the park asked us if we slept at all because they didn't. Same thing second night.

It boggled my mind why a business owner would have a pets that had such a negative effect on his business so I thought I would ask. His answer was "If you don't like it, leave." So we did just that.

Certainly not the best campground I've ever stated at, but not the worst either. Rates were reasonable for the Outer Banks, but I was not a fan of the non-defined camping areas. There were hot showers, but they were filthy when I used them. By far the worst thing about this campground was the peacocks. At first the novelty of having peacocks at the campground was unbelievable. This quickly changes to utter distaste for the noises they make at 3:00 in the morning. Bottom line, I would stay at Adventure Bound again if I couldn't find a better option.

Went to OBX for surfing and beach driving in the 4wd. Was pretty much winging the trip, called some campgrounds from the beach. Had an average rate of 40-60 per night, when the man on the phone said $20 I was like wow... They even have hot and decently clean showers/bathroom!! Tent only camping, sorry RV'ers.

The camp was clean and would of been quiet, but it was Bike Week and had open exhaust sport bikes and cruisers out riding the night. Many many bikers at the campground but they were very friendly and kept their engines quiet(cant say that for the snoring, sorry guys LOL). The campground does have a couple Peacocks which were hollering a couple times, and everytime a bike drove by they yelled, didnt bother me I thought it was hillarious. They are the noise police, if you scare the peacocks you are being too loud.

One note, BRING BUG SPRAY. We went the 4 or so miles back up to walmart for some. Yes you will have plenty of critters while camping, but this was a little extreme. Some Off! "Smooth and dry" with 15% deet held them off, it dosent smell like normal bug spray so we decided to spray the truck(tent poles broke) before sleeping and didnt see anymore around.

Owner is very nice. Will definetly come back!
