Camp Grounds on NC or Virginia coast

Hi, I'm new to this forum, but I wanted to know if any members had a recommendation for a campground located close to the ocean in Virginia or NC.

We were just here Holiday Travel - Virginia Beach (Holiday Trav-L Park)
Spent a week and had a great time. If you like crab legs there is an all you can eat buffet called "Captain Georges". Now we usually do not do buffet's, our son lives there and he insisted, and we both really enjoyed it. They also have a lot of other sea food like clams, oysters, ect.
The worse part is the roads going out to Va. Beach. I-264 is terrible. Also make sure you stop at the inspection station on the way out if you go. They just check you have your propane off prior to going through a tunnel.

Some ideas

X2 Trav-L park Va Beach

Some other ideas: Outer Banks - there is a nice ocean front campground in Rodanthe NC called Camp Hatteras (I believe) a little pricey but great location. Also a nice ocean front Trav-L park in Emerald Isle NC, again a little pricey but ocean front. To stay near coast Wilmington, NC has a nice KOA which is not far from beach, 4-5 miles, nice town to visit (my home). Further down NC coast pickin' are slim, most campgrounds are trailer parks with some transient space, can find them in Surf City NC, Holden Beach, NC, for a few. Now a little further down the coast Myrtle Beach SC, just over SC/NC boarder, there are many opp's, our personal favorite there is Myrtle Beach Travel Park.

Shoot me a pm if you need more info or suggestions

We returned yesterday from four days at Camp Hatteras. This place is quickly becoming our favorite. There are numerous seafood restaurants, water sports, and the fishing is outrageous this time of year.

We were at the Cape Hatteras KOA in Rodanthe, NC for 6 weeks. The area has several good restaurants. If you love peace and quiet, the Outer Banks is the place to go. This campground is on the Ocean.

'First Landing State Park' is nice for a couple days. It's just North of Va. Beach.

We were also at Holiday Travel Park two weeks ago. Very nice place. Did not stop at the check point however...

You do not have to stop at the check point before entering the tunnels if you have your propane off. Holiday Travel Park is really nice and they have a free parking lot for patrons located at the oceanfront. Traffic is horrendous any time on the interstates surrounding the Tidewater area, well really everywhere and if you are sensitive to noise, the military jets flying over the campground will drive you crazy. It is so loud that conversation outside is impossible. Lived in this area for about 20 years and would never want to live there again.

Pine Grove Campground and Waterfowl Park is one our favorites on Chincoteague Island, VA.
It's not on the water but also not crowded like Tom's Cove or Maddox. The beach is an easy bike ride through the wildlife refuge, or you can drive out to it, at least you used to be able to. There was talk about banning cars out by the beach and implementing a shuttle bus system, but haven't heard anything about it for a while.
