Camping on Cape Hatteras National Seashore

Camping on Cape Hatteras National Seashore Professional Review and Guide

"Camping is the logical extension of any outdoor experience, and it’s the best way to get deeper into the nature of the Outer Banks. Sleeping on the soft barrier island sand, feeling the constant stickiness of the salt spray in your hair and on your skin, and falling asleep to the sounds of the ocean waves rolling in and wind rustling the roof of your tent—there’s no better way to end an Outer Banks day.

Cape Hatteras National Seashore provides excellent accommodations for camping, with four designated National Park Service campgrounds at Oregon Inlet, Cape Point, Frisco, and Ocracoke Island. Camping is not allowed elsewhere in the national seashore, and that includes the beach."

This review is for camping at any of the established campgrounds on the outer banks.Camping here can be great if temperatures and humidity are low, and there is a breeze. Otherwise mosquitoes and flies can be quite bad. Also, no campfires are allowed. Sites are first come, first serve, so arrive early, drive around to see what suites you, then go reserve it at the Ranger office.
