Absolutely LOVE coming here! We live in VA and go to the mountains quite a few times a year, always staying in Big Meadows Mixed Camping. Always clean and quiet with so much to do and the price cant be beat. Whether its an RV or a tent, the price is still $19.00 per night. Wildlife abound - I've seen more black bear this year than I have in the 18 years I've been coming up here! Highly recommend to everyone!

We booked this campground based on reviews on here. We really enjoyed our stay as it was our first time to the Outer Banks. We booked a premere site and were right at the ocean, we only had to walk over the dunes to get to the beach and that was about 50 feet or so. Nice lots and very clean; sites had concrete pads and were level, making it nice for my husband. Only complaint I have is that when I booked over the phone with the campground, I was told that the $68.95 per night was the total charge for full hook up, including cable. When we arrived, we were charged an additional $8.00 PER DAY for EACH of our children - as well as an additional $3.00 per day for cable - with a Good Sam discount, our rate ended up being $80.00 per night including tax. When I questioned the staff about the "childs fee", I was more than shocked to find out the $68.75 was for 2 people only, yet they advertise it as a "family rate". We never did get an answer as to why they would charge an additional price per day for kids, so this would be the only downfall. A "Family" to me is more than 2 people and if you already have the site with 2 people, what difference does it make if you have kids? That would be like a hotel charging for children to sleep in the bed. Makes no sense to us, but this is their policy and we werent the only ones who voiced our concern. The people booking in front of us had 8 children between them! At $8.00 a day per kid plus $64.94 for a non premere site, that can get very pricey even with a Good Sam Discount. I would stay here again given the sites are wide and spaced well apart compared to other campgrounds in the area. The KOA down the street was crowded and the sites were so close together I dont know how they got in and out of their trailers. So compared to that, I'd take Camp Hatteras any day of the week. I guess the $80.00 per night is worth not having your neighbor see and hear everything you're doing in your RV. It is the most expensive campgrounds in the area, but again, I think its worth paying a little more for the sites (except for the $8.00 per kid charge). Activities were well planned out - they had dances, bingo, arts and crafts and pot luck dinners planned throughout the week. Nominal fees for the activities werent too bad. I'd come back here but would really like the campground to change the Family of 2 to a family of 4 and not charge for children. Just doesnt make sense...

We arrived at the campground around 6:00 p.m. and were greeted by the host and park manager. Checkin was a breeze and we got the site we had requested when we made reservations back in May. What a lovely campground! Restrooms and bath house were the cleanest I've ever seen at a campground and free showers to boot! Park itself was cleaned daily, no trash to be seen anywhere. Quiet time hours were observed and followed, but even before the hours were enforced, it was very quiet and there were many children about. Concrete pads at every site made for easy leveling for my husband. You could rent a fire pit for $4.00 for your entire stay and that included a huge bucket of wood! There was so much wood we actually left about 8 pieces when we left for the next people and we had a fire every night. Neighbors were very friendly. We even got together with our neighbors and their children to play a few "family oriented" card and board games games. Kids had a great time, lots to do here with the swimming pool and club house along with the playground. Nature trail was massive and you really felt far away from civilization while walking it; its over a mile long and winds through the woods. Pets are allowed (although we didn't bring ours), and have a wonderfully large open run away from the campers, which is really nice for the animals. Manager came over to our site asking us if everything was to our liking and also asked if we would change anything, what would it be to make the park better. There was nothing we'd change, as it was all excellent. Manager stated the owner of the campground takes customers reviews very seriously and tries to improve per their requests. I would definitely stay here again when we are in the Williamsburg area. At $33.65 per night with the Good Sam discount, you can't beat it! My highest recommendations!
