Is a very nice campground. One side is on the ocean, which you can't see because of the sand dunes, the park has a walkway and steps over the dune to the beach. The other side of the campground (across the highway)is on the sound (bay) side and is great for sunsets. Campground has a large outdoor pool and a smaller indoor pool. Very interesting area -much different than the NJ shore. If you have the time continue down to Cape Hatteras and take the ferry to Ocracoke Island, which was the home of Blackbeard the pirate. Most interesting quaint, really small island. The Outer Banks are definitely worth visiting.

Camp Hatteras is nice and has concrete pads. Very nice since you can pick between sound side or oceanside. Nice Sunsets. Within 1mile is Cape Hatteras KOA and a smaller private campground called Ocean Waves. The Wright Brother memorial is nice. If you like to fish there are tons of places, if you like to crab go behind the Bodie Lighthouse. Oregon Inlet fishing center and the Bonner bridge are great places to fish. If you have 4X4 you can drive out to several great places at Oregon Inlet and down in Hatteras at "The Point". There at several lighthouses, Bodie, Hatteras, Ocracoke. Be sure to take the ferry to Ocracoke. We go often since it is short trip for us and we loce the OBX because it is SOOOOO undeveloped. Once on OBX there is virtually no comericailization, we love to go to get away from it all.

Sounds to good to be true. I can't believe all these years of camping and we have never done the outer banks. Thanks guys. Check the Mid Atlantic forum, there is a small rally being formed over the Easter holiday.

Out of curiosity, are the Outer Banks a good place to visit in November or early December? Or is it too cold and windy to enjoy?

MK, I would say yes since it is right on the Atlantic ocean. It might not be to bad if you have a good wind break, like being right up behind some sand dunes. But give it a try, it will be a new experiance

The wind can be bad at anytime out on the OBX, you never know. We go all year, in fact we just got back last two weeks ago. In early Nov there can be some good fishing and in Dec if the weather is cold enough the rock fish (striper) start coming in. Just depending the OBX can be fine all year round but the wind can blow VERY VERY HARD out there.

One more things, many shops, food places, etc close done in Oct and Nov so there may not be much open. Get plenty of Grocery before heading to the Rodanthe area (no Grocery store), there is one further south near Hatteras

The Outer Banks are awesome, and we enjoyed our stay at Camp Hatteras in July. It is expensive though, but a nice place. Ocean Waves looked nice, much less expensive, but much smaller and tighter spaces.
The wind blows out there alot, thats why the Wright Bros. chose it to try to fly. In a week, we only put our awning out a couple of times. We stayed on the sound side at Camp Hatteras, it was much less crowded and the sunsets were great. Here is a pic of our site, #64:


Here is what you do with your 4X4 out there:


Do not be tempted to go on the beach without 4 wheel drive.
There are also several decent NPS Camping areas without hookups if you can get by without them.
The OBX are a great place to see the nature of the beaches and ocean. Can't wait to go back.

If you want to see more pictures or a write up on our blog, go to www.lomaxonline.com.

Nice pictures....wonder if your hookups could've reached if you pulled into the spot instead of backing in....What a waterfront view out the front window that'd be!!

Just an observation....

We were at Camp Hatteras on 9/11. Although it was very strange and a bit scary being there at that time, we really liked the campground. It was not crowded after Labor Day. The sites are nice with a concrete pad and the beach is just over the dunes. They have a very nice outdoor pool and a small indoor pool. It wasn't quite as pricey off season. Remember to bring everything you need as there are no supermarkets close by. There are some small mom and pop stores, but that's it. Of course that is part of the beauty of the Outer Banks. I sure wish we could join you but we just don't have the time. Maybe another year.
