Cape Hatteras

We are planning from Asheville to Cape Hatteras campground.
Do we go down to Cedar Is catch the ferries etc up to the campground or do we track to Manns Habor and drive south to the campground
Can either be done in a 40 ft MH and toad?
What will the roads be like?
Is it worth the extra miles to do option 1 ?
We are leaving Asheville this Sunday 25 th march so hopefully the big frontal storms will have abated by then

I would think that it would be better to go I-40 to I-64 to Mans Harbor. Then you get on Hwy 12 and drive to Hatteras. If you go to Cedar Island you have a 2.5 hour ferry ride to Ocracoke Island which runs 4 times a day this time of year and cost $15 up to 20 Ft. ; $30 up to 40 Ft. and $45 up to 65 Ft. Then from Ocracoke to Hatteras there is a free ferry that runs every hour. In my opinion it unless you want the hassle of the ferry system or you just want to see Ocracoke go to the Mans Harbor Nags Head area and drive down Hwy. 12. The best way to see Ocrocoke is to drive a small car, because the streets are narrow and there are not too many places to park an RV.

The info below was easy to get. The advice above was more difficult.
Needless to say the best way is via nags head.
To get to our campground, take Highway 12 South at
the intersection of Highways 64 and 158 (the
Manteo and Nags Head Causeway intersection). You
will travel 27 miles South and we are on the left
side of the road. (Milepost 40.5) As you enter our
driveway, the registration area is the first large
building on your right.

The campgrounds copped a caneing from Irenand are still rebuilding. The manager advised us of this when we booked and really wanted to make sure we we're still happy to come.

I'm here.
Follow your nose on 64 and you can't go wrong
Great roads, some slow areas due to repairs but it was a piece of cake

Just a thought to those wanting to visit the OBX
This place is seasonal to the point where everything is closed between thanksgiving and call it Easter
The restaurants etc were gearing up to open but you couldn't by a cup of coffee to save your life

A bit of an exaggeration. My daughter lives in Nags Head and there a many places open all year long. The OBX even has chains like, Applebees, Chili's Dunking Donuts, etc., and they, along with lots of local places are always available. Now, if you get down to Hatteras, Ocracoke, and the like, you will have to look around a bit to find the full time local places.

Yes you are right. We didn't discover Nags Head until we ventured north of the turn off on the way to Virginia Beach. Some more research would have been valuable on my part however we are glad we did the cape to Ocracoke journey.

Did not intend to sound cranky, just wanted folks to know there is another side to the OBX. We love Ocracoke - go down there almost every time we visit. Glad you had a good time.
