Is North Carolina warm enough to camp in January?

Was wondering if North Carolina is warm enough to start camping in January? I don't want to drive to Florida to get warm weather. Only needing high 50's or low 60's at minimum. Looking for a respite from Pennsylvania January. Any comments or recommendations would be appreciated.

I know different parts of state have differing temperatures just like PA. I think east of I 95 have the warmer temps.

I stayed at a campground near Asheboro in late February, and my fresh water hose to the hydrant froze solid.

WE have also camped near Myrtle Beach near the end of February. Even though we did not have freezing weather that trip, some of the campers there had 5 gallon buckets over the hydrants with light bulbs in the buckets to keep from freezing in past weeks. Northern Florida can get pretty cold, also.

Here on the NC coast it can be hit or miss with the winter weather. Generally the days will be in the 50's but we do have spells of lows in the teens and highs in the 30s, usually about a week at a time. We spent a week in Myrtle Beach over New Years last year and the weather was in the 60's.


Having said all of that we are backwards this year and going to the mountains for New Years!

I live in North Carolina, well the southern part, we camp in winter. We stay at Kure Beach, actually Ft Fisher, it's a military campground. Sometimes we are alone for the whole time, it's nice. We go to Surf City.

I live in central NC about 30 mins west of Durham. I do winter camp here but you won't really see those temps in January too much. Typically we see daily lows in 20-30 but can see single digits some times. Highs will be in 40's, maybe occasionally see a fifty.

Temps are more moderate by the ocean...and hard freezes are not common...but like last winter...they can happen.. daytime highs in the 50's are more common than in the 40's on the ocean. That said...I go to FL. This will give you avg. temps hi & low by month on the outer banks.

I like cold weather and my camper will take a light freeze. I like to see it snow

Has anybody used a heat tape on the incoming water. Maybe not on a vinyl hose?
