Question Nags Head, NC Campgrounds

Was looking for a nice family campground in the Nags Head, NC area. Looking at maybe heading down there in May of next year. Any advice on Campgrounds in that area would greatly appreciated.

Hey there, I have been to OBX several times in Kitty Hawk and Nags Head but always stayed a beach house and never camped. Harleyman 1955 had a thread going and he said in it " stayed at Cape Hatteras Resort most of the week and Ocean Waves Campground the first 2 nights" I am not sure how he liked them and they are located south of Nags Head. Maybe try to contact him for better info. Good Luck!

Not much to speak of in the area around Nags Head up to Kill Devil Hills. What is there doesn't get very good reviews. We've had great experiences further south down on Hatteras Island in Rodanthe (20 or so miles south of Nags Head) at the KOA. A little pricey, but you get what you pay for. Especially good stuff/activities for young'ns. We go to OBX every year for Bike Week in April and will stay down on HI every time. Many good campgrounds on the ocean and/or sound sides.

Let me know if you'd like any additional info and I'll dig some up. We're only abt 90 mins fm Nags Head. A great ride on the bike!

My brother-in-law stayed a week at the Cape Hatteras KOA in Rodanthe over July 4 and said it was very nice, but pricey which is to be expected on the OBX. We are somewhat partial to KOA and plan on staying there sometime next year probably early summer. I don't think you would be disappointed considering what's in the area.

there is a fairly new one in Wanchese, which is on Roanoke Island, and is less than 10 miles from Nags Head. I dont know much about it though.

As others have mentioned, there's really nothing in the Nags Head area of the Outer Banks. Head South on rte 12 into the Cape Hatteras Nat'l Seashore and there are plenty to choose from. We've stayed two summers in a row at a great and INEXPENSIVE campground with full 50amp hookups called Ocean Waves in the town of Waves. http://www.oceanwavescampground.com/ It's fairly small but each concrete pad is no more than a few hundred yards from the water. We're going back this coming season so don't take my spot.

Looks like a very nice place. Thanks for sharing.

We have stayed at Ocean Waves as well and liked it. The pool is very small and there is not much else to do there. Easy access to the beach as mentioned. Reservation system is a bit strange. Mail it in and hope you get what you want.

An option for you. Covington to Nags Head is about 350 miles. Covington to Myrtle Beach is about 360 miles. The difference in driving time is about 45 minutes. Great seaside camping (Pirate Land and others) more to do, etc in MB. I've been to both areas many times and my favorite of the two is MB. Not to mention that it's a few degrees warmer.

You can always call Ocean Waves CG. We make reservations early in the spring and never had a problem. I've heard lots of good things about Myrtle Beach campgrounds but havn't been thru there. One of the nicest things about any of the campgrounds on Cape Hatteras seashore is the solitude and freedom from the rat race. Seasonal traffic is light at worst. Wifey and I really enjoy it's pristine, uncrowded beaches.
