We arrived at the Outer Banks on a whim on our way home to SC from VT and we made an excellent choice with the KOA. After riding/biking around/through a few other campgrounds, we quickly came to the decision that the KOA was the nicest campground in the area. If you have kids, then you are in luck because there was plenty to do - the bounce thing was popular, the zero-entry pool was big & very nice, they had movies at night, a big playground, and of course, the beach!! There's a DQ across the street, as well as a little café that was really good (but a bit pricey for what you got). The KOA staff we encountered were very friendly. There were a couple computers available free of charge for campers who wanted to use the internet (or were having trouble with their Wi-Fi). We had a spot on the ocean which was great - much better than in the middle of the place, crammed into a long row of campers. Our spot was right next to the bathhouse and walkway to the beach but it wasn't a problem at all - our relax area faced away from all that. The campground was super dog-friendly and lots of people had their furry friends with them. One of our dogs is on a training collar and they were fine with that, as opposed to a leash. After the busy time of day & in the morning we could let them all run on the beach freely which was awesome!! At $100/night it was very expensive compared to other campgrounds, but I imagine it's in line with the area and cheaper than other accommodations on the outer banks. If we come back to the outer banks with the camper, I can assure you we'll stay at the KOA!
