Primitive Beach Camping

Love this island! No crowds, lots of open beach, and plenty of fish! If you’re looking to camp on the beach and escape the crowds, you’ve found your spot. You need 4WD to get around the island but most of the ferry places have atv rentals. Only accessible by ferry/boat, call a few weeks ahead to…

Great dry camping

We started out in P63 - it has the best views but it is really small, no where to spread out and totally exposed to the wind. I don’t recommend it. After driving around for an hour seeing what was available we moved to A15. Much better! Secluded from the wind and a nice place to set up. We biked…

Camp on the sand - ORV Permit Required!

Yea, there's definitely no better way to camp. Start your adventure on a ferry, cross an inlet watching all the wildlife play right in front of you, then get off and drive immediately to endless stretches of white sandy beaches. See someone nearby, cool, whatever. Drive somewhere else and set camp.…

A good base camp for local activities

The basics: the campground is clean, the bathrooms are clean, the sites have some privacy, and some sites have shade but most don’t. The beach is close but not right next to the campground. The campsites might require some leveling blocks, ours did. The campground is a bit hilly.

Very quiet spot in the woods

Very helpful and friendly owners that live just off the camp grounds if you need anything. I stayed in a spot nestled in the woods. Very quiet. Good spot for a night or two

Perfect spot on the sound

This is our favorite campground. Small, quiet, and everyone is respectful and friendly. The sunsets on the sound can’t be beat and everyone makes you feel like you’re at home.

Wow!

Camping on the beach? What could be better! From driving up and down the beach to just parking and relaxing. This place is amazing.

Beautiful!

I love this campground! The sites on the hill have a breeze and view of the ocean. The ORV just outside the campground makes beach access easy. The showers are basic and much appreciated after a long day.

Woods next to the beach

The campground is in an awesome location. Walking distance from the beach or accessible by vehicle. If you have a four wheel drive, you can drive right into the beach. There is also a boardwalk that spans a lowland area and takes you to the dunes from the campground.

We had two sites. P57 and…

Beside a swamp

The campground layout is nice, we had to move a picnic table to have a spot for our tent that wasn’t half in the grass. The area was teeming with mosquitoes in early June, and they bite through multiple layers of clothes.

Make sure you don’t face your tent entrance directly in the wind so you…

Pretty good

Big campground with decent space between sites. Watch out for cacti and other prickly things in the grass.

Parked on the P loop to be closer to the beach boardwalk. He sites at the top are up the hill and have a nice view of the water.

Two of the bathrooms were open (post-Covid). They were ok.…

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THIS PLACE

This campground feels built right into the dunes. It is a perfect place for a true Outer Banks experience. We enjoyed deer stopping by our camp site, and the wild, remote feeling here. It is dependent on the site you choose. Some are much more secluded than others. 

Pet friendly, Fire ring and…
