One of four National Park Service campgrounds within Cape Hatteras National Seashore, Cape Point Campground is near the oceanfront next to Cape Hatteras Lighthouse Historic Site and Cape Hatteras. You can walk from here to the beach, the lighthouse and the Buxton Woods Nature Trail and ride a bike to the village shops and restaurants. The NPS campgrounds accommodate both tents and RVs on 202 sites with no hookups. Each site has a grill, picnic table and parking pad. Restrooms, unheated showers, potable water, a recycling center, and a dump station are available to campers. Be aware that while it’s a beautiful campground, it’s also low-lying and can be quite buggy. Bring insect repellent and make sure your screens are patched! Sites may be reserved via www.recreation.gov starting Spring 2016. Pets are allowed if they’re kept on a leash. The campground is open from April 15th to November 28th this year, but it may open late or close early if there is any standing water due to heavy rains. Always call ahead.
