Outer Banks Camping Locations

Where and when to camp Outer Banks Style

Outer Banks Camping Interested in camping out at the outer banks? Having spent the majority of my young and adult life camping and hiking I naturally gravitate towards outdoor options when it comes to travel and vacations. I've stayed in more KOA's than i can count and have to say they may be then next best thing since sliced bread. So if you want to go to the Outer Banks of North Carolina and enjoy the true beauty of the beach there really is no better way to go about it that to camp. The middle of summer is probably not the best time to camp out at the outer banks, unless you have a nice camper with air, or plan to spend the majority of the day out shopping or some other indoor facility. So the fall, winter, and early spring is the best time.

Where to Camp?

There are quite a few facilities to choose from and we'll highlight them below. If you happen to have a camping facility not listed please visit our Advertise page and tell us about it. We won't charge you anything to place it here, the advertise page is just the best page to contact us from.


Cape Hatteras KOA

Cape Hatteras KOA (800)-562-5268 is our #1 choice for camping, like we said above we've used KOAs for years, they are like the McDonalds of camping. Very universal as far as amenities and they are everywhere. This facility is open all year. For endless unspoiled sand and surf, head for this oceanfront KOA on the Outer Banks. It's just a few steps from your campsite over the dunes and right to the Atlantic. Walk the beach for miles, hunting for shells, casting for bluefish and scouring the surface for dolphins that often cavort on by. Or head across this sliver of an island it’s just a quarter-mile wide, to Pamlico Sound, where windsurfers and kiteboarders scoot off toward the horizon.


Cape Woods Campground

Cape Woods Campground (252) 995-5850 is a family-oriented campground, nestled in a quiet and secluded spot on Hatteras Island. With lots of amenities to offer, your visit is sure to be a fun, safe and a memorable occasion. We are minutes from the beach, the best fishing spots on the island and area attractions!
