$25 day FHU concrete site Pros Level concrete site FHU Easy access to RV park from gate Max stay 30 days (leads to more opening and better maintained lots) Laundry (1.50 wash/dry) Strong WiFI Base golf course nearby Cons Cable was down while we were there (no biggie but if it matters to you double check).
Grounds were very clean and well lit, and amenities were in great condition. Camp host was helpful and very professional. Please note the camp host can only accept cash, so either arrive while the office staff are present or pay by credit card over the phone. As noted by others, there are no fire rings or picnic tables at the sites, but there are a number of picnic tables for on a grassy area near the middle of the park. The showers and laundry are clean well maintained. This park is very quite. There are no playgrounds or other "recreation" areas for kids in the park but there are a number of recreation areas on post and in the area. The electrical/water/cable hook ups are near the front of each site, so one may have pull forward more than normal or use extensions to reach the hooks ups. Absolutely a park we'd come back too when traveling or exploring eastern North Carolina.
This new park is a jewel with its generous spaces and well kept premises. The staff members are extremely accommodating and friendly, the showers, restrooms, and laundry facilities are clean. Bring your kayak or canoe and take advantage of Pelican Point's waterway, a short drive from the RV park. Base stickers are not needed to enter this facility. We did use the main gate but others at the RV Park indicated they used Slocum with only their ID card. We came through Slocum with the car after an excursion and only needed to show an ID card. Call ahead to verify access control.
The camp host took my reservation and the office called and confirmed it. Campground was fairly easy to find and all the gates recognized my Homeland Security decal on the vehicles. The park is still very stark looking with just a small cherry tree at each site and no other landscaping. Lawn is mostly weeds mowed very short. Sites are about 45' wide, one after another. Wish there were some shrubbery between. Brand new post for utilities with two hangers for cords. Excellent power and water pressure. But not even a picnic table. There's a nice community room with TV and a good laundry room. Four picnic tables sit in the middle of one loop. Restrooms/showers are individual but gender-assigned with three each. I can't praise them enough. Everything was functional and spotless. Is there a reason the dumpster was outside the park on the road? Nor were there any recycle containers. $25/night is too high for April and October. It's not a prime location, although the coast and historic sites were within driving distance. I see little reason for a checkout of 1100 - it's not like they have to clean the site or rake the concrete. The manager was looking forward to improvements and expansion.
J.A. left this review using the Directory software: - We enjoyed our stay. Nice blacktop roads to ride our bikes or walk for long distances. The marina had a nice picnic area. People were very friendly there. I would not hesitate to return to this location.
Gorgeous campground! BEWARE - you cannot enter station at either gate if you do not have a DOD sticker on your RV or tow car! We had to pull into a small parking lot to register both vehicles and it was a nightmare getting in and out. We are retired Air Force and that entity no longer requires DOD sticker. Knowing this in advance would have really been helpful. Lauri, who runs the office is a sweetheart and very helpful, although she did not know about the DOD sticker. The campground is brand new and beautiful and worth every penny. Exchange and commissary are very adequate, and about 3 miles down the road.
We just completed 10 days camping at the new facility. The facility was very nice and well layed out for big rigs. The downside was poor maintenance of restrooms and showers. Dirty most days and lack of paper products. The water pressure very low in showers. Staff friendly and helpful. Maybe the bathroom issues were doing in part to the new facility? I would go back.
