The location is amazing. You are a stones throw away from the boardwalk at Ocean City Maryland.
The resort is very nice. It has, hands-down, the best dog beach we’ve ever experienced at an RV park. ￼
Warning, the tiki bar gets lit. The crowd is pretty rowdy at all times of the day (and night), so if you prefer for it to be a little quieter, do not reserve a spot near the tiki bar.￼
The tiki bar typically has live music and it’s pretty good too. We really enjoyed the music.￼
Also, be careful of raging golf carts. Everyone has them and apparently they can only be driven at max speed￼￼.
Overall, this is a really fun resort and definitely a place where people come to party.￼
Everything at this resort is shiny and new.
There is not a lot of shade as most of the vegetation has just been planted, so take that into consideration when planning your trip.
The Tiki Bar had amazing drinks and bar food. And the bartenders were super nice and accommodating.￼￼￼
The camp store has everything you could want and more.￼
It was fun paddle boarding on the calm water.
Be warned, there are a lot of people on golf carts hauling ass throughout the property. I wish there were some sort of common sense/decency test people had to pass before being allowed to drive golf carts, so just be careful when you’re walking.
Camp Hatteras RV Resort is incredibly large. You can stay beachfront or you can stay sound front. This is the largest campground we have ever stayed at. And from the sound of it, it is always jampacked.
We selected to stay sound front because we were interested in paddle boarding on the on sound. Plus, if you stay on the sound side, you get beautiful sunsets.
It is definitely a hike if you stay on the sound side to get beachfront. We rode our bikes over there each day and it was work, considering we were carrying our beach chairs and beach supplies.￼
They had a really great food truck on site. You could get breakfast, lunch and dinner there.
They had a very large dog playground that was well-maintained, as well as other amenities like a basketball court, miniature golf , shuffle board and tennis.￼￼
There is not much shade whatsoever, so take that into consideration when visiting. ￼
Very large beachfront area with lots of room to spread out during the pandemic.
They also have a ￼separate dog beach, where my dogs lived their best life￼.
The Jackspot Restaurant has really good snacks and drinks.￼
It is super convenient that the resort staff picks up your trash for you right at your RV site daily.
Location-wise, you are not too far away from downtown Cape Charles, where you can enjoy lots of shopping, restaurants and bars.
The closest grocery store is about 15 minutes away. It’s a Food Lion and it’s just okay.
You can fishing or go crabbing right at the resort, or you can go just down the street to Kiptopeke Park and fish/crab for the day.
In my opinion spot 818 is the best spot at the resort. You have the best of both worlds, sun and shade and it’s a large spot with room to spread out.
This is definitely a "city" campground. Spots are tight, you will be very close to your neighbors, but you'll have everything you need, including a fire ring and picnic table. Wi-Fi and cable were also on point.
There is an on-site store which seemed well stocked. However, we tried to order firewood several nights and each night, they were out of firewood.
Bugs are bad. Bring bug spray!
There are two dog parks beside the campground. One for small dogs and another for large dogs. They are nice to have but both could definitely use some work. Even though we have small dogs, we went to the big dog park because the small dog park was in really bad shape.
Walking/biking distance to the beach. Also walkable to really great coffee shop called Tybean Art & Coffee Bar.
*Warning: While Tybee Island, including the campground, is one of the most dog-friendly places I have ever been, you are not allowed to have dogs on the beaches on the island. This is so strange to me, but they are very serious about it. Don't do it.
The campground is small and well-kept. It has an incredibly chill and laid-back vibe.
You are a quick walk to the brewery and café, where you can grab breakfast, lunch or dinner. It is nice and dark at the campground, so great for star watching.
There are several small walking paths throughout the property.
It is very pet friendly.
It is very quick drive to lots of hiking, including the Appalachian Trail.
You are also a stone’s throw away from a ton of other really great breweries and wineries. I highly recommend visiting Blue Mountain Brewery and Bold Rock cidery during tour stay for some great food and beverage.
Cell service and wi-fi are spotty at best, but what do you expect? You are in the middle of the mountains.
Each full hook up site has a picnic table and fire ring. Fire wood available for purchase.
*Warning, if you stay at a full hook up site and are parked in an odd number spot, you will need an extra long sewer hose to reach the connection. For example, we have a small travel trailer and we needed a 30 foot hose. The sewer connection for the odd number sites is on the opposite side of the RV than the electricity and water. The good news is that in a pinch, and your sewer hose does not fit, they do have a dump station on site.
