The Great Outdoors

While on your camping trip in the Outer Banks, you'll be close to quite a few natural areas. Jockey’s Ridge State Park is a popular place on the Outer Banks, over near the town of Nags Head to the north. This breathtaking environment has towering sand dunes which were the site of the first flights of the famous Wright brothers, known for being the fathers of modern aviation. Gorgeous hiking trails running through the dunes and an amazing visitor center make this a favorite for outdoor lovers.Just a few miles away when you're camping at Hatteras Sands Campground, Cape Hatteras National Seashore is a brilliant federally-managed park worth seeing. The beauty of this beautiful stretch of coastline is only matched by its treachery, known for being the Graveyard of the Atlantic due to the volatile waters off the coast where many shipwrecks have occurred. Head there for an exciting day on the beach, with tons of hiking, swimming, fishing, and surfing, among other things.Cape Lookout National Seashore is farther south, also managed by the federal government to preserve the integrity and beauty of the Outer Banks. Fifty-six miles of undeveloped beachfront comprise this unbelievable preserve, with historic village districts, old lighthouses, and some amazing wild horses that roam freely. On the mainland, Croatan National Forest covers over 300,000 acres of land, with a vast network of trails for trekking, mountain biking, and more. Rustic camping facilities are ready to accommodate you and your RV rental, but staying overnight is not necessary to make the most of your visit. Guests can also kayak, canoe, fish, hunt, or go birdwatching in the lush forest between the Neuse River and the Atlantic Ocean.

City Sightseeing

The inviting seaside village of Hatteras and its surrounding area are packed with cozy cafes, art galleries, shops, and historic lighthouses, like the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, which is one of the most iconic in the country. The tallest lighthouse in the nation is no longer on the shoreline, as it was moved inland to preserve the massive black and white tower. A climb to the top allows people to take in amazing views of the vast, watery terrain.The Frisco Native American Museum is absolutely fascinating, containing thousands of artifacts from both local tribes and other bands of Native Americans around the country. This excellent museum has lots to teach about the nearby tribes like the Croatoan, Roanoac, and Hattarask people. See brightly colored costumes, small figurines, weapons, arrowheads, and more at this gem of an institution when you rent an RV near Hatteras Sands Campground.Widely considered the biggest attraction on the Outer Banks, the Wright Brothers National Memorial pays respects to Wilbur and Orville Wright, who came from Dayton, Ohio, to test their airplane on the dunes of Kitty Hawk and Kill Devil Hills, changing the course of modern history. You can learn about the innovation and legacy of the brothers, as well as the science behind airplanes while seeing a replica of the first plane they built.Book an RV rental near the Outer Banks and immerse yourself in this oceanic atmosphere. Relax and enjoy your campsite at Hatteras Sands Campground, branch out to explore the stunning shorelines, or dive into the exciting history of the area when you head here for your next motorhome camping experience.

Questions about RVs?


What type of RV should I choose?


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.


Do the RVs have bathrooms?


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.


How does check-in work?


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.
