Cape Hatteras Island nc

Hi guys,

Next week, we are going to Cape Hatteras Island NC. I would like to know which is your best campground for a travel trailer between Cape Hatteras State Park, Ocracoke Campground, Frisco campground, Cape Point Campground and Oregon Inlet Campground and why? Thank you in advance for your suggestion.

Thinking the same thing in a few weeks and watching for suggestions.

I do know that Ocracoke involves a ferry ride. I'm wondering if the long overhang on my class C will hang me up, on the ramp.

I'm currently at the cape Hatteras koa and it is really nice. Big pool, hot tub, easy beach access. Jumping pillow and playground for kids, if applicable. Bath house is the nicest I've seen although I've only been at this for 8 months.

Drove past the Good Sam park on the way in, just up the street, it looks nice from the street.

We have stayed at Camp Hatteras RV Resort several times and also considering visiting the area in a couple of weeks. We called to see what was available and must have caught them at a bad time. The person seemed really put out responding to basic questions and those closest to beach access were taken so we may look elsewhere or just go further south. Past experiences have been good however. As with most campgrounds now a days the sooner you reserve the better. The campground at Oregon Inlet has no hook ups but is much less expensive if you can find a spot and dry camp a few days. A lot of people speak well of Ocean Waves and the KOA has made a lot of upgrades. If you have children there may be more there for them to do at the KOA. Sorry I can't help you regarding the ferry to Ocracoke except based on other campers we have spoken with I don't think that would be a problem.

We stayed at the KOA. Very nice pool and facilities. Consider a patio site to cut down on sand in your RV. We drove through Waves which is next door to the KOA. Nice, small, tight but probably a better beach point address. There are more options for shade! The pool at the KOA rocks! We drove down to the CH NPS CG and it was basically deserted in July. It would be a very quiet location and somewhat isolated. That's not everyone's cup of tea.

I stayed at Hatteras RV Resort over the Labor Day weekend. Very nice place with good amenities. If you want a nice smaller place I suggest Ocean Waves campground. I rode my bicycle through there and it was very nice. All concrete pads and was well kept and maintained. Price was very reasonable also.
