There are a few within a reasonable distance from our house: Shallotte, Wilmington, New Bern, and Cape Hatteras. Any opinions on any of these places? Looking for a nice family campground not too far from Southeastern NC.
Thanks!

The one is New Bern is pretty nice,its under new ownership and has been completey redone.We rode through checking it out for some friends. We stayed at the one on Hatteras years ago,drove by last year when we stayed at Ocean Waves,still looks pretty good,don't know anything about the other ones though.If you have kids there isn't much to do in New Bern though,its a pretty town on two rivers with a lot of historical homes,but we would love to have y'all come on down!

Our son lives in Wilmington and so we have stayed at the Wilmington KOA many times. The last visit was November. As with all KOAs it is a little expensive but is a well run campground with friendly staff. Most of the sites are long pull throughs. They didn't have wireless internet the last time we were there but they have an ethernet LAN in the office to connect your laptop as well as a spare computer in the TV lounge that you can use for internet access. The only problem we have had there is trying to get a reservation on weekends. There isn't any other campground close by and it seems that lots of people in the area come in for the weekends only since it is fairly close to the beach. Weekdays never seemed to be completely full but 50 amp sites in the summer are at a premium and they go quickly.

The Wilmington and New Bern KOAs are under the same owners.

Thank you both for your comments. We are moving back home to Jacksonville in June and are looking for campgrounds to check out, as we didn't have a camper when we left. We'd like to try Myrtle Beach too, but those places down there seem so big, and I have to wonder if they are too big. Probably lots for the kids to do though. I guess you never know until you try.
Thanks again!
