Outerbanks

Hi all. Just got our first travel trailer a few months back. Only had a chance to take three trips before putting her up for the winter. Anyway....the wife and I are trying to plan some trips for next season and were wondering if anyone had recommendations for NC outerbanks area campgrounds. Just an FYI we have 5 kids and a dog so we're looking for family friendly campgrounds or parks.

Thanks

Our "dune front" site at the Cape Hatteras KOA in August. Love the OBX, and this is the only cg we go to when we can get down there. Nice facilities, the beach wasn't crowded, and the pool is nice too.

Getting the picnic shelter and a site in the last row along the dunes made this a perfect spot.

Camp Hatteras is very near the KOA and has sites on both the ocean and sound sides of the road.

Camp Hatteras, go on their web site and print out a discount card that can be used early season before the beaches get crowded. We love it there during the off season. During the hot season, tons of things for kids to do. You will love it.

Just want to say thanks to everyone for the replies.. Never even thought about KOA. I'm still new to all of this. Can't wait to sit down with the wife and plan this trip. After only 3trips, were all hooked. Big step up from the tent camping, that's for sure. Thanks again everyone.

Camp Hatteras and the OBX KOA are side by side. We have stayed at both. Camp Hatteras has an indoor pool but the KOA does not. Wife prefers KOA. I prefer Camp Hatteras.
Staff at both are excellent. Take most of your food with you. It is a LONG ride to a grocery store.


The picture on the left below my name was taken at Bodie island Lighthouse on the OBX. They just opened it it for climbing recently. That makes 3 you can climb within a reasonable distance, Currituck (to the north at Corolla), Cape Hatteras, and Bodie Island
