Very good park, clean, friendly people, well spaced sites. Our only negatives were the sand roads and we had difficulty getting out of the park onto the highway because of the traffic during rush hour.
This is an awful campground. No Utilities, cold water showers, located right on the road, the beach is a long walk away, and it is not even a good beach. The only reason I stayed there was it is the closest campground to Nags Head and Manteo. The worst part was the lack of security. When the ranger on duty leaves, there is absolutely no one in control. No gate, only sporadic patrol, no campground host. Quiet hours are supposed to start at 10 p.m. but there is no enforcement of the rules. People ride through making noise all night and groups have loud parties. A whole group of campers complained to the ranger about a loud drunken party the night before (with air horns and car horns blowing until 3 a.m.) but the offenders were only given a warning and were not even asked to leave. I left earlier than I had intended because I did not feel safe. I plan to complain to the National Parks Service. I will never stay there again.
The campground itself was acceptable, but the management had a bad attitude. The people in the tent next to us went to the pool leaving their dog chained to the picnic table in their campsite. The people went to the pool, the pool was close by and the poor tied dog could see her family. The dog barked, cried and howled because it was left alone for at least half an hour. Even with our motor home windows closed and the air conditioner on, we could hear the poor dog. The campground rules clearly state that dogs are not to be left tied at the campsite so I went to the manager about the dog and he said "what do you want me to do about I can't muzzle the dog" in a sarcastic voice. I read him the campground rules and said the people were at the pool. It was later that the manager got the people to take care of the poor dog. I was mistreated as a customer and the dog was mistreated. I will never stay there again.
