North River Campground
Reviewed 22 July 2013 via mobile

Found this campground sear thing through the Good Sam website. Since it was close to home, we stopped in for a quick tour. Liked what we saw and booked a stay. The grounds are immaculately kept. Sites are laid out nicely. Full hookups on all RV sites and 50 amp service on most of those. They have cabins and motel rooms too. Didn't go on those however. Clean laundry and bath facilities. There is a pavilion available to bigger groups. The pool is small but enjoyable. The campground is indeed out of the way and secluded. Sites arranged around a five acre lake. Small camp store with pizza too. Nearest store is about 15 minutes away, so plan ahead. We will be regulars.

Reviewed 17 July 2011

We stayed here for a weekend in July 2011. The owners & staff are very friendly & helpful. Their staff helps you back into your site, the sites are beautiful, complete w/a concrete pad & flowers. There is a nice stocked store, paddle boat & hydroboat rentals. They just added a brand new pool & kiddy pool this year. They offered movie nights both Friday & Saturday nights. There is a new screen enclosed pavilion & train rides for the kids. Check their site for festive packed weekends. The 5 acre lake is perfect for fishing. This campground is QUIET, VERY QUIET!! It is only 30 mins from Elizabeth City, NC & 30 mins to the Outer Banks. Their is also a Pizza restaurant right on site that offers yummy pizzas & chicken finger baskets. You can't go wrong in anything staying at this campground!! It's a little hidden treasure tucked in Shawboro, NC. The owners have done an amazing job w/this place. This campground is for all ages, from the youngest to the oldest....just a SUPER GREAT PLACE TO CAMP!!! You have to come see it to understand....just don't forget the bug spray.

This is an excellent campground. The managers are very welcoming and the layout of the site is superb. It is well worth the detour down country roads.
