Ocean Waves Campground

Best campground on highway 12. Concrete pad for rev and nice grassy area to relax. Short walk over the dune to beautiful beach. Dog area to let you pets run. All the amenities that you could want. Can’t wait to go back next year.

Ocean Waves Campground is located in North Carolina


From Central NC: Utilize Rt-64 from Raleigh, through Rocky Mount and Williamston. You'll cross the Croatan Sound onto Manteo then another bridge to the outerbanks. Within a mile you'll come to the junction of NC-12 at the town of Whalebone. Follow Rt-12 south into the Cape Hatteras National Seashore. Continue south on Rt-12 crossing over Oregon Inlet on the Bonner Bridge. Eventually you'll come upon the triple villages of Rodanthe, Waves, and Salvo. Look for Ocean Waves Campground on the left approx 1/4 mile past the KOA.
