  • 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.
  • It's a great place to go camping, although if you are on a fishing trip check the weather. We were there when a cold front hit and only caught a small yellow Perch.
  • 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.
