We could not have Christmas with our kids, so we went camping. Where? To our new favorite campground, of course!
Back to CP. We were in site 11 on this trip and we reserved it because it is close to the bath house.
The campground has only had about 12-15 campers in it this week. We love the quietness and the wind in the trees. It turned off really cold….I MEAN REALLY COLD, so I have spent a LOT of time inside the camper.
Here are some of our favorite things from this trip:
Clam Chowder (yes, buy the BIG ONE) from Swansboro Food & Beverage in Swansboro
Lazzara’s Pizza on Emerald Isle has some AMAZING thin crust pizza (save yourself and don’t settle for Michangelo’s pizza…. not even close to the deliciousness of Lazzara’s)
I did a silent video that show several sites and how big and well kept they are. I showed the end of the nice bath house and captured a few scattered campers and a brave tent camper……brrrrrrr too cold.
We came back for Thanksgiving week and had a blast! We were in site 1 and it was awesome! It is bigger than site 17 and you only have a neighbor on one side.
We rode bikes on the marsh trail which is just down the road the campground is on and watched kayakers and fishermen launch from the pier.
All the items I touched on in my October review are still true. Bath house clean, grounds well kept and host friendly.
If you have the chance while in season and while camping….call Bekah Bay Oyster Company and order some of her farm raised oysters….so clean and such a sweet taste. We opened ours on the half shell and grilled them in the shell with butter and Bull Hot Sauce.
We camped here in October 2020 and stayed in site 17. It is a great site with lots of room between you and the next camper.
The bath facility is in a very nice building, is heated and has individual locking shower rooms so you have total privacy and security. The roads are paved and the paved pads accommodate up to a 70 ft camper/vehicle. Each site has a smooth, flat, gravel area equipped with 2 lantern poles, one large picnic table, and a fire ring with swing away cooking grate. Beyond the gravel areas are flat level areas of grass. The campsites are shaded by large, tall pines and other assorted trees.
The bath facility was very clean and well kept. The host was very friendly and helpful. The grounds throughout the park are extremely well kept.
Upon arrival, you check in with the host, drive to water fill area and fill up your fresh water tank. There are additional water fill faucets throughout the park. Your site is equipped for both 30 or 50 amp campers.
We really like this little campground and plan to come back again soon.
My family and I stayed here for a week in November. My wife worked from the road while I taught school. The WiFi was strong and the employees were helpful and informative. The laundry was acceptable but expensive. I liked that we were able to have family dinners and experiences while still staying socially distant. Our site was a pull thru which was great.
We would definitely stay there again if visiting Wilmington.
We camped here when we went to Wilmington for a 5k. We stayed here for just one night and had a good time. The campsites are close. The camp store had everything you needed in case you forgot something. It is in a high trafficked area so don't look for peace and quiet. The playground was awesome and included a cool wooden pirate ship. The grandkids loved it! It was a nice place to stay for the night. The staff were friendly and helpful
I've had many good memories here, sad to see Ben Hardy not there anymore, he always went above and beyond to make your stay pleasant, most recently the mens bathroom was smelly, shower area very dirty, and no toilet tissue available, trash cans were over full there was paper towels all over the fioor, it just might be a while before i return there for a visit…. :(
Sites were open and level. All roads were One Ways which was nice for flow. WiFi was strong and reliable, actually quite surprisingly nice). Firewood was a bit expensive.
Laundry was acceptable but not impressive. Playground was nice with many apparatus but the ground was all sand (not my favorite).
We were close to groceries and many amenities. I only wish were were closer to the beach but that’s not their fault. We would definitely stay here again.
