We stayed at the MCAS Cherry Point old RV park about 10+ years ago and enjoyed the local area. This year we decided to return for a one-week stay to once again explore the North Carolina coast and to see if the Pelican Point RV Park is as good as rated in other reviews. Yes, Pelican Point RV Park and the staff deserve those high ratings and compliments. The park is great; it was well designed with good driver side view angled back-in and pull-thru sites, plenty of space between the sites, large concrete slabs that can easily accommodate the largest RV’s, the utility hook-ups are located away from slab giving you extra room for positioning your RV on the slab which allows you to fully utilize the slab space for your outdoor activities, the grounds and facilities are clean and well maintained, and finally, MCAS Cherry Point is located in Havelock, NC which, in our opinion, makes it a good location to set up a base camp for day trips to visit the many surrounding historic, recreational and dining out sites. Over the years we have traveled up and down I-95 and US-17 many times and never gave this area, known at the Crystal Coast, a second thought. We believe that subconsciously we thought it was too far out of our travel route and the highways were not the greatest for driving a large vehicle. Today the highway conditions have changed with the improvements to US-17, NC-24, and US-70. Getting to this area has become much easier – we enjoyed our trip down from Wilson, NC (I-95) to Goldsboro (NC-264 & I-795) and then eastward on NC-70 to Cherry Point. We stopped for lunch at a beautiful rest area located west of New Bern, NC on US-70. Since we are here for only seven days we choose three days for playing tourist and the remaining days as do-nothing days. We are enjoying our stay but did not allow enough time to visit all the great sites in the area, therefore, we look forward to not waiting another 10 years before returning to this 5.0 rating MCG. A big “thank you” to Cherry Point and all those involved with the design, construction, and operation of the Pelican Point RV Park – you are doing a great job.
