Ocracoke Campground is located at the south end of the Outer Banks. The campground sits on the west side of the dunes, so you can’t see the ocean, but you can hear it in the night. The sites are wide open, with no tree cover and no privacy. However, you can enjoy the beach, the village, the dunes, the ponies, and the history here and won’t be disappointed. The lighthouse sits just blocks away from Springer’s Point, a maritime forest and nature preserve. The forest has hiking trails and is said to be the place where the pirate Blackbeard met his demise. Farther north on the island, you can visit the Ocracoke ponies.Sit on the beach with a good book, or obtain a permit from the national park headquarters and take your four-wheel-drive vehicle for a spin on the sands.
