This was our third year staying at this campground which is about three hours from our home. The access to the Outer Banks was awesome as always. This time we kayaked on the nearby scuppernong River. The swampy trip did not disappoint with wildlife or fishing. The swimming area is still closed on Phelps lake, But we were able to swim everywhere because the lake is so shallow.￼ The bugs were not bad At this time of year. The campground and the surrounding area is really amazing and we are glad we stayed for four days this time.
