My wife, sister-in-law, dog and I stayed at the Cape Hatteras KOA the week before the 4th of July, 2012. We stayed in lot #102 at the very back of the park, a stone's throw from the ocean. We thoroughly enjoyed our week-long stay!

Since this is a family park I expected noisy kids and barking dogs. Instead I got peace and quiet no matter what time of day it was! The new facilities were great including the bath houses!

Our site was very convenient to the ocean. However, it was a long walk to get to the front of the park to the office to get ice. A small price to pay, though!

The staff was very friendly and helpful. Our neighbors and other guests in the park were all very nice. If you're looking for a world class ocean side RV park, you have to give this one a try. Like a lot of other guests there, you'll be a return guest many times after trying it once!

Cleanliness is next to godliness. Then KOA Hatteras should start their own religion.

Bang for your buck- think July 4th fireworks manhattan. That's the bang level.

Amenities- pool rocks (zero entry, slides) not even just for a campground, but on any scale it's a a great pool. Camp store, cabins, bathrooms you might want to throw a cot in and crash instead of your quarters.

Food- yum yum

View- any close to the ocean and you would need gills.

Rock on KOA

I’ve stayed at a number of campgrounds in the US and Canada, and this is easily one of the best.

Pros
Location, location, location the campsites are steps from the beach and you can hear the ocean and feel the breeze even while sitting under your awning.

Last year’s hurricane = brand new facilities this year.
Spotless bathrooms and magnificent pool

Wonderful friendly staff.

Family style bathrooms provide a much better experience than typical bathhouse (much more private).

Cons

VERY poor internet access. Even when the campground was empty, performance was painfully slow and unusable at many times. I can’t imagine that it is at all effective when there are more users logged in. Plan on checking your e-mails elsewhere.

Family style bathrooms are more prone to be dirty (guest 1 takes a shower and gets water on the floor; guest 2 walks in with sand on their feet/shoes; guest 3 gets a muddy floor). This isn’t a comment on how well the staff cleans/maintains the restrooms, because they do a great job – it literally can get ugly after a couple of guests, so shower early and be guest 1.

If you want a fire, get ready to fork over some bucks. You have to rent a fire ring at $9+ per day. One night’s fire ring and one bunch of wood was over $17. That makes for some expensive s’mores.

Our second Memorial Day stay. The campground is doing an amazing job of rebuilding after devastation of Hurricane Irene last year. All new plumbing and electric. Staff continues to be helpful and upbeat. They promptly address any issues that pop up. New pool is HUGE with fun slides for all ages. Long lines at one of the bath houses but that may lessen once last bathhouse rebuilt. Lots of new cabins. Ask for F.D. he makes you feel like you are part of the family for minute one.

Room Tip: Try to stay a few sites away from dumpsters.

The location is excellent for anyone wanting quiet, rest and relaxation. The campground offers direct beachfront access with washrooms directly behind the dunes. Restrooms and showers were spotless and campground is well managed and maintained. The staff was great; attentive, courteous and helpful. Views are great in the morning and evening, two fishing piers are close as well as a cafe and DQ.

Room Tip: Storms can be violent and quick , I recommend a cottage over tenting. Buy your groceries at the Foo...

Our family stayed here mid july. The front staff was verry friendly and helpful. He stayed in a cabin which was very clean, a/c worked great, and they had enough room for 2 adults and 2 kids. The restrooms and showers were clean but sandy from the beach but it's expected. It had a great playground area for kids as well. You are walking distance to the beach. Our family will deffinetly return.
