Nice place! Yes, it’s a little soggy, just remember to pitch your tent so that it isn’t within reach of the swamp! I made the mistake of forgetting that the swamp grows and rises considerably when the tide comes in, luckily my awesome tent kept me safe and dry! I moved it for my second night. Staff is lovely and helpful, the other guests were super welcoming and fun. Bathroom is very clean, nice hot showers (helpful after you spend a whole morning dragging your tent out of a swamp in the middle of February.) The lighthouse is easy to hike to and the view is worth the climb! Lovely beach. The park is recovering from severe hurricane damage so some parts aren’t open and there is lots of downed vegetation, but it’s still beautiful.

Tight, damaged but nice beach/lighthouse
Roads and sites are still in rough shape. A couple sites have paved or gravel pads. Some sites are tight to maneuver into or crowded with your neighbor. Utilities are new and the restrooms were nice but a bit sandy.
Park staff was friendly upon checkin and checkout. Apparently it's pretty easy to move sites if you're not happy initially. Lots of campers with dogs, some were rude. The beach is the real draw here. Uncrowded and a nice 1.5 mile walk to the lighthouse. Watch the tides though if you go.

We stayed for 3 nights. The beaches are fantastic and the area is very nice. The bugs are terrible. The deer and raccoon are willing to come within 10 feet of you. I would go back when it cools down a little more to avoid the bugs. Also bring your own fire wood! They charge 6.25 for a small bag of it. They also give a great military discount.

We were there a day & a half before we had to evacuate for Florence. Love it - beach was quiet, peaceful, and uncrowded - the only way to be at the beach!
WiFi’s a little sketchy, try to get front row, beautiful but a shame how much was lost in the past two hurricanes!

The beach was the most peaceful I have ever been on. I could look both ways as far as I could see and could count 15 people on each side. Awesome! 5 stars for beach. The camp sites were submerged and mosquitoes were the worst ever. The staff did an excellent job attempting to pump out the water but the damage done by hurricane Matthew was overwhelming. Hopefully they will get it draining again.

First of all, the park service has worked very hard to reopen the campground and it shows. The new restrooms are nice. Sites are level and in good shape. They lost all of the ocean front sites. The outermost sites are a haven for mosquitoes, especially those near the marshes. You will need lots of spray, a strong fan, and a tent with netting if you want to enjoy your campsite. Beach is beautiful and never crowded. People are super friendly. Will come back in the non summer months to avoid the mosquitoes.

Grounds are a bit crowded, but they're well maintained, level and clean. The location is gorgeous, right on the beach, with lush "jurassic park" looking forest all around. Bring bug spray!
