In July, 2012, we traveled to the Outer Banks of North Carolina. We camped one night at Oregon Inlet Campground at Cape Hatteras National Seashore. We liked that campground quite a bit, so one day we went to check out two other US Park Service campgrounds, Frisco, and Cape Point.
All three campgrounds are very different. Cape Point is one giant field. This campground resembles a giant football field, with paved driveways and paved parking areas for campsites running through it. There are bathhouses and showers scattered around every once in a while. There are no trees whatsoever, and absolutely no shade, unless you bring an awning of some sort. It could be very exposed in the event of a storm or high winds.
The grass was in really good shape, and would be great for frisbee or kicking a soccer ball around. I don’t know if there are a lot of sandspurs like there are at Oregon Inlet.
We rode through on Thursday, July 12, and very, very few sites were taken.
Cape Point is at the corner of Hatteras Island, south of Oregon Inlet and north of Cape Point. The famous Hatteras lighthouse is just down the road, and very visible from the camground.
Here is a good map of Hatteras National Seashore.
