    hiya, we're planning to get way this summer for camping vacation in North Carolina. Apart from the Great Mountains, anyone know of campgrounds near the see?

    Hi there,

    Cape Point is an excellent place for camping if you're looking to get views of sea, and you also have the town of Buxton itself where you can get provisions.

    Okracoke is another of the most popular campgrounds in the park, and you can only camp here if you have a reservation, which can only be made over the phone through the Reservation America hotline.

    You can use a credit card to pay for your reservation over the phone. The Frisco campground is toward the south of the park and offers some of the best chances to see native flora and fauna undisturbed.

    Also, be aware that check-out time for all campgrounds is noon.

    Hope this helps

    The Appalachian Trail, which stretches 2,174 miles from Maine to Georgia, runs along the crest of the Smoky Mountains and marks the North Carolina-Tennessee state line. There are three visitor centers: Oconaluftee in the former state and Sugarlands and Cades Cove in the latter. US Route 441, alternatively designed “Newfound Gap Road,†provides internal automobile access and crosses the Appalachian Trail midway through the park. The hiking trails, however, provide the best connection with nature and lead to 1,008 developed campsites and 100 primitive ones.

    For a variety of camping options, the Outer Banks and the barrier islands offer over 20 locations for camping in North Carolina. You’ll have your choice of primitive campsites, tent camping, secluded cabins, and full hook-up sites for RVs and motor homes. Some of the parks provide have swimming pools and hot showers and most are convenient to local restaurants. Of course, camping on the barrier islands puts you in direct contact with the Atlantic Ocean for swimming, fishing, and sailing.
