    Welcome to Onslow Beach Campsites, nestled near Sneads Ferry, NC. This spot is a favorite among campers, especially those with military ties, thanks to its prime location between the Intracoastal Waterway and the ocean. If you're looking for a place where you can unwind and enjoy the beach, this is it.

    One of the standout features here is the easy access to the beach. Just a short walk from your campsite, you'll find clean sands perfect for hunting shark teeth or simply soaking up the sun. The water is clear and inviting, making it great for a swim.

    The campground is pet-friendly, so feel free to bring your furry friends along. Each site comes with a picnic table, and many have a shelter area, which is a nice touch for those sunny days. While the WiFi might not be the best, the cell signal is decent, so you can still stay connected if needed.

    For those who need a few supplies, there's a mini-mart right next to the campground. It's stocked with essentials, so you won't have to venture far for snacks or forgotten items. Fishing enthusiasts will also appreciate the nearby fishing spots along the waterway.

    A heads-up: the campground is on a military base, so you might hear some noise from low-flying aircraft or artillery fire. It's all part of the experience here. Also, be prepared for some construction noise if there's ongoing work nearby.

    Overall, Onslow Beach Campsites offers a laid-back, beachside camping experience with the convenience of nearby amenities. Whether you're here for a weekend or a week, it's a great spot to relax and enjoy the coastal beauty.

        Originally a tobacco farm that was converted into a muscadine vineyard. Such a magical spot with so much history. Plenty of space to wonder. Wildlife is abundant.
