We go to Camp Hatteras Resort & RV Park - The World Class RV Resort on the OBX several times each year. The nicest on the OBX for full hook ups. National Parks I would recommend are Oregon Inlet on the north end near Nags Head, Frisco which was just mentioned in Airstream Life and Ocracoke if you want to be removed totally and deal with the ferry.

We've been there early April.
Having Ocracoke to ourselves is like a little slice of heaven.
No bugs that time of year either!
The ocean is a little cold that time of year though.
Absolutely loved it!

We go in the spring and the fall. Novemeber can be very nice down there! We like the mountains in the summer, with cooler temps and less crowding!

This is a good thread to find. I've been kicking around the idea of going there for a week or so. It's only a few hundred miles from me

Ok outerbanks I can definitely comment on. The wife and I went there a couple of summers ago and the best place was Frisco Woods. It is in hattaras and directely on the sound. It was awsome. Not sure if you windsurf but they rent equipment there and the hole nine. It is tough to get in though. Call to call way ahead. Also took our tin can over on the freeies from wilmington area. It was way cool. They really know how to squeeze thoese rv's on those ferries. Hope this helps.

Bob,

If you have time for a journey, take the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel to the Eastern Shore of VA and continue up route 13. We took the Lewes-Cape May ferry when we last made the trip and enjoyed it.

My least favorite route is to meet I-64 to east of Richmond then pick up I295 to meet I95 north of Richmond. I95 is just all work and no play.

Pat

Trailers on ferries?

I thought trailers were forbidden on the ferries? Is that not the case? Can you take trailers on the ferries?

We also like Camp Hatteras. I plan to go there this summer.

see ya on the road,

Woodalls shows two with good ratings. One has already been discussed Hatteras Sand RV Resort (www.hatterassands.com not much of a website).

The other is Frisco Woods Campground (in Frisco, of course). www.outer-banks.com/friscowoods Lotsa useful stuff on that site, the ferry schedule, for example.

Have a great trip!

We are on Cape Hatteras as I write this, our planning-a-day-at-a-time mode failing us when we discovered the National Seashore shoreside campgrounds are all closed for at least a couple more weeks.

We took the toll and the free ferry here yesterday morning and there was an AS with tow vehicle waiting in line to go south when we arrived. There are no signs nor other restrictions posted on length, etc., just charge accordingly. We met a couple back the road with a large class A who ferry here all the time without problem.

We saw several campgrounds here, opted for a PA one (Sands of Time) in Avon for $20 a night with full hookups. It is not on the shore, but nothing is very far from the shore here , is very neat/tidy and has lots of sites this time of year. This PA cg is unusual in that they have no restriction on length of stay for the 50% discount. We are going to do our exploring from here before heading inland.

Travel safe,

Maggie

We stayed at Frisco Woods last Fall, very close to the Sound. A huge windstorm resulted in water lapping at our AS wheels, so we relocated in the middle of the night! Exciting, but still a great campground. The national parks are beautiful if you want to boondock.

These sound like some sweet spots! If you get a chance add them to the favorite campsites google map. It is starting to get enough entries to become a useful planing tool, I think.
