A wonderfully quiet, private and green (but lots of stickies/burrs!) primitive National Seashore campground in a good location to explore Cape Hatteras Lighthouse and the southern portion of the Outer Banks, N.C.
A very mixed site quality here. On positive side all sites are paved with good separation, quite a lot of vegetation (= nice privacy) and decent “siting areas” with picnic table and grill. Plus sites are located on a hill so there is a nice selection of lower, more wind-sheltered sites and upper, more breezy sites, some of which even have a view. The main dings are site levelness & stickers/burrs. The sites vary a lot in size (anywhere from 25-feet to 40-feet) & levelness (some were really badly unlevel) so only a sub-set could fit “the beast”. Plus the burrs/stickers were the WORST we have encountered anywhere. Horrible, painful stickies all around (and long-thorned cactus too), so much so that we had to move sites 3 times before we even found a spot that we could exit the RV without getting them all over our shoes/pants. A last ding? The trees are not terribly well trimmed here, so we did encounter a few scrapes driving around the loop (smaller rigs wouldn’t notice, but big rigs definitely will). The entire campground is primitive (NO hookups), but does allow generators outside of quiet hours.
