Located on the beautiful shores of White Lake, Camp Clearwater is North Carolina’s largest family campground. Long considered the nation’s safest beach, White Lake’s 1,100 acres of crystal-clear water, white sandy bottom and gently sloping shores have made it a popular vacation spot for families from East Coast states, especially North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia and Florida.

At Camp Clearwater you will be able to enjoy White Lake’s natural beauty on our 1,300 feet of private white sandy beach or from any of our four piers. We offer a wide variety of sites to suit your Overnight, Seasonal, and Year-Round camping needs. Camp Clearwater also has sites to accommodate your Manufactured Home or Park Model if you are interested in camping with us for many years to come.

Great place for Kids

Have been going to Camp Clearwater ever since it started back in the late 60s. Has always been a great place to go especially for kids. The water is very clear and the beaches and the bottom of the lake or a white sand like at the ocean.Campsites are very tight but very long. The Wi-Fi is OK but as in most campgrounds not very reliable. Golf carts are a problem,with very young kids driving them. Are being used a babysitter. I always book my site at a speed bump. Very good free entertainment with teenagers and golf carts. Nice place to stay 👍👍👍👍👍

Not my vibe

Camp Clearwater is mostly permanent structures, this definitely isn’t wilderness camping. We didn’t end up staying at our site once we saw how busy it was The swimming beach wasn’t clean, but it was a fun place for kids to play.
