Ocracoke campground, nc

Hi

New to the forum and wondering if anyone has been to Ocracoke Island with their TT and what they thought of the camping.

Are there sites on Ocracoke? We've stayed plenty at Ocean Waves campground down rte 12 in the Nat'l Seashore area. Nice place and very reasonable.

National Park sites there are the best located..well outside of town behind the dunes. Wonderful world class beach and surf.
No hookups but there is bathrooms/showers and water available. Lots of raptors...otherwise known as mosquitoes...bring netting!!

If you want more amenities...the Beachcomber has 30/50 electric & water at each site and food next door. And is right there on the edge of "town" which may or may not be a plus to you. Not right on the beah...but close enough to walk...easier for a bike...maybe 1/2 mile. Have NOT stayed there...just know where it is!

Good luck...hard to go too far wrong on Ocracoke!

I was in Ocracoke Island last month but we didn't bring the tt. We did go around the whole island and did not see a camp ground. However I did notice a very nice KOA just outside Hatteras. It looked awesome! Plan on a 45 min ferry ride plus wait time to Ocracoke. I wouldn't plan more than a day on the island, not much to do. Lots to do further north. The OBX is a good time!

We just got back from camp hatteras, it was a great time, spent one day to the south looking at the lighthouse, jumped the ferry for dinner, another day to the north to see the wild horses, this is a MUST on any trip to the OBX!

Thanks everyone for your replies. This exactly the kind of information I was looking for What a great forum!

I have spent a lot of time at Chincotique and a little time up near Duck and Corrolla. I love the beach and lots of it. This sounds like a great place and plan to test the first boondocking trip in the TT here. Now to book reservations for the ferry!

Dave

Thanks for posting. We're planning on going one day, hope sooner than later, but not June-Aug.

Ocracoke NPS Campground

We just returned from our shakedown trip. The NPS campground is first class. Well as long as you don't need a full hook up. There is water and a dump station but no electric. We spent a few days at the Ocracoke Station campground,very nice but it was not our cup of tea.
The NPS campground sites are large and are right behind the dunes just a short walk to the beach. Oh and miles and miles of great beaches on Ocracoke and the fishing was great.
We were fortunate and did not have any real problems with mosquitos although two nights we were forced to use bug spray right at dusk and one night just for the heck of it. Most nights I was able to sit outside and stargaze without any mosquitos nor using bug spray.
The trailer worked out well but there were a few minor annoyances that need fixed or replaced before our next outing.

X2 for Camp Hatteras, was there last month prior to the hurricane. Grand kids had a great time, less than 100 yds to the beach. you can hear the waves breaking during the night. Plan on going back after Sept 1, rates go to almost 1/2 price. Will be staying for 5 days and taking in the sites. Really looking forward to it.
