Cape Hatteras National Seashore is located in North Carolina. The national seashore preserves an area of the Outer Banks between Bodie Island and Ocracoke Island. These islands are constantly changing due to shifting currents, tides, and weather. The area is rich in history and historical figures. The most notorious of these figures is likely Blackbeard, the 18th-century pirate who was known to pillage ships along the Atlantic Coast.
There is much to see and do at the national seashore. Two lighthouses are open for self-guided tours including Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, which is the tallest lighthouse in North America. Many different types of wildlife can be found in the water and on land including five species of sea turtles. Fly a kite in the breezy Atlantic air or see what shells you may find on the beach. On hot summer days, take a dip in the salty water of the Atlantic Ocean.
There are four campgrounds at Cape Hatteras National Seashore, all of which can accommodate RVs. Reservations can be made in advance online or over the phone. All campgrounds are located near the beach, separated only by dunes. There are many modern amenities at the seashore to make your stay comfortable, such as restrooms with showers. Pets are welcome at the park but must be leashed.
