Just returned from a long weekend of camping. First time I've camped in almost 20 years. Usually rent a house in Hatteras Village, but thought I'd give camping a try. Chose this campground partly due to the fact that they take reservations. Have only ever done day trips to Ocracoke thought it would be fun to stay longer.
Can't say I'm a fan of the "here's your registration paper, drive around, pick out a few spots and come back to check to see if any of them are available" process, but whatever. Lucked into a dune-side spot (D3) - loved the spot.
bushes gave a sense of privacy
proximity to beach - although this spot has one of the taller dunes to climb
bathrooms were clean
even though there was a "public" access path next to our site, people were constantly traipsing through our site - annoying as we were trying to get to sleep
lack of shade (not that we weren't warned of this)
quiet time apparently doesn't mean the same to all
Not sure if we will return to the campgrounds, but only because camping really isn't our thing.
LOVED Ocracoke as a destination!
