We were over there last May. Stayed at Camp Hatteras and were very pleased with campground and location.

We've stayed at both Ocean Waves and Camp Hatteras several times. Ocean Waves is smaller and has beach access to the ocean. Surf fishermen really like it. At Camp Hatteras you have a choice of Ocean side camping or Sound side camping. Rt 12 goes right through the middle of the campground. On the ocean side you can't see the ocean from your rv because of the sand dunes. On the Sound side, which we prefer, you get truly incredible sunsets in the afternoon. Enjoy your trip. OBX is a great destination.

We visited the Outer Banks two years ago. The kind folks at the ferry landing at Cedar Island allowed us to park our rig in their large lot for the night since we were taking the 7 a.m. ferry. While walking the shoreline and rocks that evening I was bitten by a Brown Recluse spider. By morning I had bad flu-like symptoms, by evening swelling and bad blisters. Worked our way up the Banks although much faster than we'd have liked. Spent two nights camped at the hospital at Nags Head where it was determined that the severe swelling caused blood clots to develop behind the knee. They started me on blood thinners, self-injected into my stomach twice each day. Spent a week in a hospital in Raleigh where they struggled to stop the cellulitis/infection. After 3 days with no success, they began to consider amputation of the leg since the infection was out of control. But they finally stopped it and released me---on two legs. On to Knoxville where severe abdominal pains put me back in a hospital. Blood thinners caused the kidney to bleed and develop a hematoma. And oh by the way, they said I had renal cancer that'll probably finish me off. They surgically implanted a filter in my vena cava to catch runaway blood clots. We chose to head for Mayo Clinic in MN, our home state, to have the kidney removed. But they said there wasn't any cancer, so no surgery necessary. Now, two years later, there are lingering effects from the bite. My wife wants to go back since her vacation was spent in hospital waiting rooms. I'm inclined to give her bus fare. I'll stay in MN and stand in a snowbank
This isn't meant to scare anyone from going to the Banks. Stuff can go wrong wherever we go. It was just an unusual camping adventure, and tribulation creates character, right?

KOA is pricey, and is a typical KOA "parking lot" campground, but it is probably the only place with full hookups you will find available.
The National Parks Service has three (I think 3) campgrounds, but they do not have hook ups.
Private CG are usually booked well in advance, but you can always call them.
Try Dare County, and/or Hatteras Visitors Bureau.
A visit to NC's Outer Banks is well worth the effort.

If you chose Camp Hatteras, don't pay extra for an ocean view (east grounds) as you have to walk over the dunes to get to and see the ocean. My wife and I were there 2 years ago and got a site in the second row from the dunes. If I climbed on the roof of the motorhome I had a fantastic view. It is a nice campground, not many trees, but close to the ocean and a short drive from the sites of the lower outer banks. Hope you have a great time, we did.

Kitty Hawk RV is simple, not a lot of amenities but have all the necessities.
It is on the water and pretty quiet. We greatly enjoyed the stay.

Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks in advance. Grey;
Better plan on going farther south than that, it still gets cold in southern SC. Try around the Orlando area. Even Orlando was chilly some days last winter while we were there from late Nov until mid Feb.

Camp Hatteras or if you want a cheaper alternative check out Rodanthe Watersports and Campground. It's small but you can stay right on the waterfront (soundside) with electric n water hookup for pretty cheap. Bathhouse is decent with hot showers a also a couple outside showers. I think they will take any rig less than 25' in length. Rodanthe Watersports and Campground Home Page
