  • I visited the park for the annual Audubon Christmas Bird Count on December 27, 2016. Even though I'm a native and lifelong resident of North Carolina, I had not visited this park or Lake Phelps before...  more »

  • It's an hour drive from Outer Banks. Very good camping spot near Outer Banks as most of the camping spots in or near Outer Banks are expensive or closed during winter or spring. Showers and toilets are provided in this park. Also, this park is nearby to the lake and a farm with beautiful houses. Highly recommended.
  • The park rangers were very nice, and when we went the campground was basically empty. The showers and bathrooms were also in nice shape.
  • Looks very creepy, USA make sure to travel with a companion so we don't end up missing, Blessings USA
  • A great swimming platform, super easy for young kids. Staff informative and kind.
  • Campsites are nice and have some buffering. The best part is pettigrew lake. We kayaked west from the boat ramp and scenery was fantastic withe cypress trees. You can kayak or canoe through the trees and is great experience. Continue on to the point and the bottom os sandy with crystal clear water. Swimming and wading on a hot day.
