If you are doing the NC coast, you have to go to the Outer Banks (OBX). We usually stay at Camp Hatteras in Rodanthe. A bit pricey, but has all the amenities. Almost next door to CH is the KOA which has just had a MAJOR facelift. From what we saw last fall, the updated KOA will be the place to stay if you have kids. They even have some cottages there now for the non campers. (CH has concrete pads while KOA does not.) And last, if you are looking for less expensive and fewer frills, BUT privately owned and manged, you can try Ocean Waves in Waves which is less than a mile down Hwy 12 from CH and KOA. OW has way fewer camp sights but is at least $20/night cheaper than CH or KOA. Also, OW does not have a website.

Beware...for as long as I can remember, the OBX has the place to go where you can drive your vehicle out on the beach. In the last few years there have been restrictions placed by the National Park Service and (like their attack on the rancher out west) are ruling it with an iron fist. Now days if you want to drive on the beach, you have to watch a 7 minute video and get a permit at one of the Park service offices and pay $50 for a 7 day pass to drive on "our beaches". And oh by the way, the Park service has also just informed the tourist community and local businesses that they will not provide life guards on the National Park beaches in 2014.

Other than the National Park Service issue, the OBX is a great place to visit.

Pirate Land was a Zoo. We were at Top Sail Hill in Florida and a Hurricane decided we needed to relocate. We looked to see where nice weather 2 as going to be for the week and headed to Myrtle Beach.

The kids had a blast but DW and I are more of a State Park type crowd people.

The Golf Cart Parades were a site to see once.

Friends we camp with often just got back from Camp Hatteras and told us they loved it. Before they left, they booked three weeks for next year. We will probably join them for at least part of that time. They said there were not a lot of other campers there this time of year, but I'm sure that will quickly change.

We usually go a couple weeks before Memorial Day and a couple weeks after Labor Day. That way we miss all the crowds and the rates are lower. If you go too early or late in the season, many of the restaurants are closed.

I recommend Myrtle Beach Lakewood campground. Stayed at Ocean Lakes but the Golf cart parade and noise from 8p - 11p was to much

Good point. Thanks. Yes, the seafood restaurants are important to us when we go to the coast.

Thanks to all

So many good tips I'll have to reply with this. Cap Hatters and Myrtle Beach will probably be the fist we will try to book. We are looking forward to seeing other A-Framers this year and will certainly keep posted on the forum here. Again thanks to all.
