The OBX Campground is located on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, which is a narrow strip of land that sits on the state's far eastern coast. While this spit of land covers almost 100 miles in length, it is less than 10 miles wide in some areas. The small community of Kill Devil Hills is nearest to the park, though the closest true town is Nags Head, located less than 10 miles to the south. The nearest larger city is Chesapeake, VA, at around 90 miles to the north.This area is surrounded by water, from the Atlantic Ocean to the east, to Albemarle Sound, which separates it from the mainland to the west. In several places, this part of the state is comprised of a series of islands that are connected by long bridges, or vehicle ferries. The local towns are small, but there are still plenty of gas stations and grocery stores where you can acquire any supplies you may need. There are also plenty of restaurants available that specialize in two local favorites, seafood, and BBQ! With a stay at this family-friendly campground in eastern NC, you shouldn't struggle to locate any services you may need.OBX campground offers both short and long-term reservations. There is also cable, WiFi, bathrooms, showers, and campsites with varying hookups available for guests. A playground for the kids is provided, as well, and some of the sites offer water views. You will even find a historic cemetery within the park's boundaries. Camping with an RV near here makes for a great base camp when exploring all over this scenic area.

The Great Outdoors

Motorhome camping at OBX Campground will make it easy to engage in a myriad of outdoor activities found nearby. When you're this close to the ocean you want to go to the beach, right? The Cape Hatteras National Seashore is located near Nag's Head. This locale offers easy access to the beach and ocean, for sunbathing, swimming, and paddle sports in the water. Should you have a four-wheel-drive vehicle, there are even places you can drive it out on the beach. (If you lack one of these, you can rent some from local vendors). This is also a prime place to spot local sea and wildlife.Jockey's Ridge State Park is located near Nag's Head. Hiking trails, picnic spots, and water access are available at this site. There are also places for swimming and fishing. It is well-known for the sand dunes that comprise it, which are some of the tallest of their type on the Eastern Seaboard. In addition to walking on the dunes, sleds can be purchased for sand sledding. There is another unique activity available here, hang-gliding over the dunes! Trainers will help people learn how to use the device, as well as how to run and jump so that you can float above the sand for a short time.One unique site you can see on the Outer Banks is Wild Horses. There is a sanctuary for these beautiful animals in Corolla, around 30 miles north of the campground. There are open-air jeep tours that can take you to places where the horses are commonly found. You may also be able to observe them along the beach on your own. Please note, these are wild animals. They can be dangerous and should be treated with the respect you would afford to any wildlife you see along the trail.

Exploring the Area

Book an RV in Dare County, and you will find many different activities where everyone in the family can have fun. As you're so close to the coast here, you'll find several different lighthouses along the lengths of the Outer Banks. Some of the more well-known of these are the Bodie Island, Currituck Beach and Cape Hatteras Lights. All of these are known to be quite picturesque. Some you can only view (as they sit on an island), while others you can actually tour. At their tops, you will have expansive views of the local islands and waterways. RV camping at this campground will make it easy for you to reach any of the local destinations you may be interested in.You will find all sorts of historical spots in the local area. The Wright Brothers National Memorial is in Kitty Hawk. This is the location where, in the early 1900s, the Wright Brothers successfully flew their first airplane (albeit only for a few seconds). Tour Fort Raleigh, at the tip of Roanoke Island, which is around 20 miles southeast of the campground. Near here, there is also information on the Lost Colony. This was a European settlement where more than 100 residents just up and disappeared. While there are many theories as to what happened to these people, to this day, their fate is still unknown.You will also find one of the North Carolina Aquariums on Roanoke Island. All sorts of sea life are on display here, from sharks to stingrays. Large tanks allow you to observe the creatures as they navigate their natural habitat. Educational programs, movies, and hands-on exhibits are offered, as well.When you've been looking for a great place to vacation, that offers scenic views and many fun things to do, consider a campsite at OBX Campground.

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.
