Great campground if you want to be on the beach at the Outer Banks. 4 stars rather than 5 because of road noise and cars on the beach which I personally do not like. We have a camper van, did not use hook ups. It’s a wide open campground close to the road so there’s car noise during the day but not so much after dark. Bathrooms are clean. Showers are separate—basically an outdoor shower building. It’s a short walk through the sand dunes to the beach—beware of lots of vehicles lining up to fish. When we were there, it was very windy which is not good for sitting on the beach but it kept the insects away. It’s a quick drive to restaurants, shopping, lighthouses, Jockey Ridge (go for the sunset!) We chose this campground for its proximity (half hour) to the Alligator River Wildlife Refuge which is fantastic for kayaking and bear spotting.
