The Great Outdoors

While every part of North Carolina has epic outdoor recreation and scenery, Hawkins Creek Campground is surrounded by some of the Tarheel State’s very best parks and beaches. Within an hours’ drive, you can find yourself at wonderful nature parks like Hammocks Beach State Park, a delightful slice of land by the coast. Hammocks Beach State Park consists of a few different areas, with land concentrated around the mouth of the White Oak River. Most of the park is located on Bear Island, a heavenly place devoid of development, giving it a wild and free feel. You can reach Bear Island or one of the park’s other islands by taking a ferry trip across the channel, enjoying its untouched beaches and primitive camping facilities, among other things.Fort Macon State Park occupies another island, over by Morehead City to the east. This historic site is equal parts beautiful and fascinating, and you can tour the massive fort that still stands on-site. Learn about key conflicts during the Civil War, or tour the many rooms and chambers observing artifacts from different eras.Cape Lookout National Seashore and Cape Hatteras National Seashore are two premium places to visit if you want to take a trip to the Outer Banks. These amazing stretches of coastline on the undeveloped islands have absolutely dreamy views, especially at sunrise. Cape Lookout National Seashore is a popular spot for birdwatching and fishing. Anglers can cast a line from the shore, and shell collectors can search the coastline for treasures of various shapes and sizes. At Cape Hatteras, you can paddle around Roanoke Sound or spend a day lazing on the sandy beach. Seek out the Cape Hatteras and Bodie Island lighthouses, and if you time your visit right, you may even have the opportunity to climb the lighthouse towers.For some more outdoor explorations, aim the Hubert camper rental towards Croatan National Forest. This massive 360,000-acre paradise contains several different ecosystems and an array of plant and animal life. Trek through swamps, wetlands, marshes, and coastal dunes to learn about nature, while enjoying the lively sounds of the forest.

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.
