This was a find! The campground seemed remote, yet I was minutes from Downtown Elizabeth City, NC. Beaches were a descent drive, maybe 45 minutes with some nice samplings of wine and brew house along the route. The 5 stars are for the campground itself. Its layout was so lovely,, and no RV/camper faced anothers Utilities. Someone really used their heads on Layout! A nice fishing lake, a Salt Water Pool (I am chlorine intolerant) and a sweet store and small area to eat food purchased from their limited Kitchen!
The Owners are downhome friendly and helpful!
This is a number one stop on any trip North or south near the East coast! Lovely!
