NC or SC beach campground suggestions??

Hello everyone,

I'm looking for suggestions on beach campgrounds in NC such as Outer Banks etc. I've camped at Myrtle and want to try some place different, so any suggestions in SC other than Myrtle Beach?? Looking for something on the water. Don't want anything I have to drive to the beach etc. Thanks in advance.

On the Outer Banks (OBX) near Rodanthe, NC are two campgrounds (Camp Hatteras and Cape Hatteras KOA) on the Atlantic side, both have good reviews. My brother-in-law stayed at the KOA last year and said it was a really nice place, walking distance to the beach. Not much in the way of entertainment or shopping, just a few restaurants, but nice and relaxing from what I heard.

This summer will be the first summer we're not headed to the Outer Banks for a week. Instead we'll be heading to Pirateland Campground in Myrtle Beach. When staying on the Outer Banks, we love Ocean Waves campground in Ocean Waves NC on the Cape Hatteras Nat'l Seashore. It's about an hour's ride South on Rte 12 from the intersection of rte 64 in Nags Head, but well worth the drive. Check them out: Ocean Waves Campground
You'll find they are VERY reasonably priced and 100 yds from the water.
You have to call way ahead for reservations. they fill up quick.

Thanks for the replies. I'll check Ocean Waves. Enjoy Pirateland, I visited when I was at Myrtle. Big and lots of campsites. I stay at Apache when go to Myrtle. Older, and not as nice as Pirateland but they allow me to bring my golf cart and motorcycle, and they have a nice pier!

Myrtle Beach Travel park. They don't allow carts is the o my bad thing unless you have a doctor's note. We just leave it at home. Thought about trying ocean lakes but then thinking about all the carts. Which I hear is like a main drag in a city e will keep going back to the travel park

We really don't miss the golf Cart that much when we are there other than when it is time to hit the abc store and Wal-Mart

If you want to drive only 20 miles south of Myrtle Beach, go to Huntington Beach State Park, SC. It's away from the crowds and the touristy beach development of Myrtle Beach. It's on the beach, nice, and close to lots of great seafood restaurants if you don't want to cook. Beautiful Brookgreen Gardens is across US Hwy 17 from the state park if you care for that.

I was looking at Huntington Beach State park. We may try that. Being able to ride the golf cart to the Walmart is nice being at Apache.

Just returned from Ocean Waves CG today. Reasonable in price and they have all necessities. We stayed on site 47 and sites are concrete. Camp Hatteras looked nice but was more expensive. We did not look close at the KOA as it was under going some construction. Frisco Woods is on southern part of island but was hard to tell anything about it from the road.
