Comments:

This campground is the hidden gem of the OBX area. The park has very few amenities, but the views, peace and quiet, and manager/owner make up for it.  A few miles away in Manteo there are restaurants and a Piggly Wiggly for groceries. 

Conveniently located near Nags Head (10 miles), Wright Brothers Memorial (15 miles) and Cape Hatteras (25 Miles)

This is now our “Go To” campground for this area
