The Great Outdoors

Camping at the Green Acres Family Campground is a good base for visiting the Croatan National Forest, which lies around 90 minutes’ drive to the south. It was established in 1936 and encompasses around 160,000 acres of estuary, hardwood forest, and pocosin along the Atlantic Coast. You can explore along the 21-mile-long Neusiok Trail, which connects to the long-distance Mountains-to-Sea Trail, or get active while off-roading and mountain biking along the Black Swamp ATV Trail.Directly east of the Green Acres Family Campground is the Mattamuskeet National Wildlife Refuge, which encompasses North Carolina’s largest natural lake - Lake Mattamuskeet. It’s home to the Lake Mattamuskeet Pump Station, which has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The refuge also provides a habitat for white-tailed deer, black bears, and river otters. It’s a popular birdwatching destination, too, with a variety of migratory bird species that include tundra swans, snow geese, great blue herons, and great egrets.Continue driving east from the Mattamuskeet National Wildlife Refuge, and you’ll arrive at the Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge, a 152,000-acre protected area of Atlantic coastline. It was established in 1984 to preserve a tract of pocosin and the wildlife species who rely on it for their survival, with a highlight being its population of red wolves. Begin your visit at the National Wildlife Refuges Visitor Center on Roanoke Island to learn about the ecology of the region, then head out exploring along the Wildlife Drive. If you want to stretch your legs, you can embark on the short Creef Cut Wildlife Trail, which is renowned for its waterfowl viewing during the winter months.

Exploring the City

The campsites at the Green Acres Family Campground are just ten minutes’ drive from Williamston, where you’ll find several supermarkets for picking up grocery supplies. There are also gas stations here if you need to fill up your motorhome rental and a wide selection of eateries that include fast-food restaurants, barbecues, and an oyster bar.While you’re in Williamston, don’t miss a visit to the Senator Bob Martin Agriculture Center, a state-of-the-art indoor coliseum where rodeos and dressage events are regularly held. It features two modern barns and almost 300 horse stalls, as well as seating for 2,400 people during ATV and motocross races, circuses, and boat shows.Also in Williamston is the Asa Biggs House, a historic residence that was once the home of U.S. Congressman Asa Biggs. It was constructed in 1835 in a Federal style and later enlarged with a Greek Revival addition, with the Martin County Historical Society now occupying the site. The Asa Biggs House forms part of the Williamston Historic District, which features impressive examples of Gothic Revival and Colonial Revival architecture dating from the early 19th century through to the 1940s. Its 368 contributing buildings include the Williams-Knight House and Frank N. Margolis House.Fort Branch Confederate Earthen Fort Civil War Site is a short drive northwest of the campsites at Green Acres Family Campground. Its displays include seven of the fort’s original 11 cannons, as well as 18th-century pottery and Native American artifacts. The site is considered one of America's best-preserved earthwork sites. Coincide your visit with the annual battle re-enactment, which takes place at the start of November each year.Whether you want to wildlife spot in the coastal reserves of North Carolina or catch a rodeo in Williamston, book a travel trailer rental in Martin County and start planning your next Tennessee camping vacation.

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
