Great place to enjoy the beach.
December 3, 2014
We stayed here for seven days in October 2014, nice level paved sites with grass & sand between. You must keep all wheels for all vehicles on the pad so make sure the site you select has enough room.

The beach is almost private for the campground and is a short walk over the dunes. Good fishing, relaxing and beautiful sunrises and sunsets from one location.

No hookups - water taps at restroom/shower buildings but cold water showers only. We used our own but you need to conserve water and tankage or you'll be running across the highway to dump and refill potable water often.

This is a great place at the end of the season, uncrowded, beautiful views. Mosquitoes are hungry - bring repellent.

We stayed here in a Travel Trailer.

Beautiful surroundings and history close by.

We came here when we first started camping. We had a very small refer in our pick-up camper so on Saturday afternoon we went in search of a grocery store. We found this little store with a meat counter about 6 feet long. The man behind the counter asked to help me and I told him I was looking for a piece of sirloin steak. He reached behind him and opened a cold storage locker and pulled out half a cow. I told him I would like about a pound he cut off a hunk of meat which I took to be at least 5 lbs. He said that's close enough to a pound and that is what he charged me for. What a hoot that was....The wind seems to blow here all the time.

We stayed here in a Truck Camper.

My Favorite Dry Camping Location
October 8, 2012
Cape Hatteras National Seashore Ocracoke Island Campground is my favorite spot for dry camping. It's a bird and wildlife sanctuary just a dune away from the most pristine, unspoiled, uncrowded swimming/surfing/fishing beach in North America. One area of the campground is reserved for quiet tent campers and three areas will accommodate RVs. The clean, paved, open parking areas have no hookups, but there are flush toilets and cold showers in buildings throughout. A dumping station and a potable water supply to fill tanks is just across the road. Holders of a National Park Service Senior Pass pay half the usual camping fee. Ocracoke ferries, to and from Hatteras, Cedar Island and Swan Quarter, will accommodate any vehicle that can legally travel on public highways. Campground reservations can be made up to six months in advance.

We stayed here in a Class A Motorhome.
