Outstanding campground with easy access to the beach!

We were very pleased with our camping experience at First Landing State Park.  The campground is well maintained and has a knowledgable and friendly staff.

The drive thru campsite we chose was clean, level, and came equipped with a fantastic fire ring and picnic table.  There was lots of room on the site, and we could have set up a couple of tents toward the back if needed.

Access to the beach and surrounding hiking/biking trails was the real strength of this location!  It is certainly not wilderness camping, but with water and electric hook ups, we set up a successful basecamp for exploring the region.

The weather was great for late October, and the crowds were minimal.  We will likely make this an annual trip.

Understated Gem

I admit to being uncertain when I made reservations here.  I had not seen any pictures of it or a camp map. What a great surprise. Phyllis was very attentive and accomodating. The grounds are immaculate, sites are level and very well designed for optimal privacy. This property has many perks: dog friendly and has space to exercise your furbabies, boat ramp to explore the surrounding waterways, golfing, screened gazebo, laundry, David's Red Barn which did not have entertainment during our stay. The man made pond adds beauty and we sighted great blue heron daily. Perfect location to go and explore Edenton NC. Please check out this beautiful, interesting, and historical town. Eat at "Nothing Fancy". We highly recommend this Campground and will stay again if in the area.

Very ordealy

Not a bad spot. More for military families but you can still enjoy yourself.

Nice wooded spots

Really liked the site spots here. Most are pretty big, set back from where you pull your car in. We have a rooftop tent so just be mindful that some parking spots are at a heavy slant and you cannot cross the barricade to drive in further. Therefore, make sure you look at the picture of the exact spot you reserve ahead of time, which is also a great feature on the site.

Awesome park - great location!

Quiet-secluded sites right on the beach!

Pros-

Quiet location 

Beach trails

Beach Access close by overlooking the Chesapeake Bay

Lots of food and stores near by

Dump station

Little Aquarium

Boardwalk

Cons-

Very tight spots and roads leading in (we are 37ft)

No sewer at sites

Fairly roomy, fully open sites, but no shade

We stayed at site 19 for 7 days. The sites are fairly quiet, fairly nicely spaced, particularly for a private RV park. The sites are FHU with 50A service. There is some occasional road noise, but not too bad. AT&T had 2 bars and 6 MB/s w/o a booster, 2 bars and 8 MB/s with it. The sites are all open, so satellite coverage is good, so as a result, we did not check OTA TV reception. Lots of open area to walk the dog and there were lots of other dogs here. Grounds are kept very clean and mowed. Very conveniently located near the Wright brothers' site.

Humble quiet campground with lots of fun events!

We have have spent many weekends here over the last few years and love it! We attended their Super Bowl event there, the crawfish bowl and many more. The personal are wonderful and have 0 issues with our sites or anything else there. 

Pros*

-Clean

-Military discount offered

-Pet friendly 

-Seasonal and Non-Seasonal Spots

-Best campground around.

-Quiet location off Knotts Island.

-Ferry Available into Camden, NC (fits out bus and 37ft TT).

Cons*

Found broken glass on the beach a few times. It was cleaned up and no issues since.

OBX clean, no frills

Obx Campground is located on Collington Island right behind Kitty Hawk, in the outer banks. It is clean, simple, and convenient to Nags Head, Kitty Hawk and Kill Devil Hills. The roadways are gravel and the sites are back in gravel with a picnic table and full hookups. There are 2 ponds and another place with water access on the property. You will need to drive to public access areas to get to the beach on the other side of town. There is a market on the drive to the camp ground that has fresh seafood and fish that is very good! We bought fish to cook while we were there and also more to take home. The sites are large and there is plenty of room for slide outs and the two vehicles you are permitted to have on site. This is a great place for families and not a place you will find a bunch of party animals. We found OBX Campground convenient for visiting the Kitty Hawk and Kill Devil Hills area.

Never disappoints

We have been coming to this campground since we 1st started camping about 3 years ago and we ALWAYS have a good time! The sites are always clean with the grass cut. The staff is always friendly and they all work hard to make sure you enjoy your time. Weve stayed all over the park; full hookup, water and electric only, super sites…they are all fantastic! If your looking for a great family trip Holiday Travel park is your place!
