“We loved it and WILL be back!”
Reviewed August 11, 2011

This was our first KOA experience and we just loved it. The staff were very friendly. the camp store had everything you could possibly need. The bathhouse had central air and was wonderful. the showers were seperate making it very convenient. We had a pavilion over our picnic table that came in very handy during a storm that blew in.
We have a popcamper and a tent and the site fit it all very nicely. biggest spot we have ever camped on. the wind did make it challenging for setting up the tent but overall we didnt have much of a problem. Next year we plan to be closer to the beach and dog walk. Can't wait to come back!

Drove 4 hours to get here only to realize that our tent, a rather large one, would not stand up to the wind conditions here. As we gave up, an RV'er came by to tell us that he used to come there with tents but his would collapse and blow away at night, so now he comes in a camper. The staff was very helpful, as much as they could be, and gave us all our money back, as we decided we had to leave. I asked about the wind conditions, and they said it was pretty normal and actually increased a little at night, so be aware of that before you go. We did see a few other tents up there that were smaller than ours, and while they were "up", they were getting knocked around quite a bit. Didn't really see much of the campground so can't comment on that. The sites were small, so you will be close to other people, and I didn't see many trees at all and there was definitely nothing separating us from the sites closest to us. The pool was pretty small I thought.

Plan early (but don't take my spot). Enjoy the nature & ability to calm down. Let the kids run in groups, make up their own games. Learn to turn off electronics. Be prepared for stormy weather at least once. Bring your friendly dog to play too! Everyone is so friendly & helpful.

Room Tip: Pick what you will do the most (pool, ocean, playground,etc) & pick close by.

We lucked into open slot Memorial Day weekend because someone else cancelled. What a great experience. Beach is right there, two pools, snack bar, AWESOME and attentive staff and DQ across street. We had such a goodtime that before we left we booked our site for next year.

Just got back from our first KOA stay. We had a great time. The lodge we stayed in was perfect for us two adult couples, full bath, kitchen and a/c. It was very clean. My husband and I slept on the fouton (even though we could have slept in the bunk beds) and for the type of bed it was and for doubling as the sofa for the tv, it was actually the most comfortable fouton we've ever had to sleep on. While the KOA is geared more towards families, it was still a great place with plenty of things to do for us, who did not bring our kids and had an adult only trip. You have to be prepared to stay there and entertain yourself unless you don't mind driving 15+ miles either way to get to somewhere. The beach right there off of the site was very clean. While we were there, they offered karaoke and served a pancake breakfast at the Poolside Cafe. We plan on going back again next summer with the whole family. If you go, ask for F.D. he was extremely helpful and accommodating. This place is worth what they are asking for, even if you're thinking to yourself it's too expensive. Your kids will love it there!

Room Tip: If you require a/c, be sure to request it

KOA Hatteras, really in Rodanthe is an excellent campground for families. They have access to the beach with a brand new boardwalk. They have access to the sound side with a short walk or drive w/ picnic tables & a gazebo. The campground also has two pools one w/2slides for the children, you can enjoy the pool side cafe and sit in the shade if you like. The staff is amazing with someone on duty 24/7 for questions, late arrivals or problems that may arise. The Summer Shiners offer several activities for families and children. There is a dairy queen directly across the street, with gas, shopping and food nearby. I would recommend Rodanthe, NC and esp. the KOA there for anyone wanting to get away and enjoy the beach.
