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 campground accommodates both tents and RVs on 202 sites with no hookups. Each site has a grill, a picnic table and a 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. Pets are allowed if they’re kept on a leash. The campground is open on April 21 and will close November 27 this year, but it may open late or close early if there is any standing water due to heavy rains. Always call ahead.
