Sleeping under the stars has never been better. Dare County has three NPS campgrounds on the Cape Hatteras National Seashore and handfuls of private choices too. The Outer Banks is a compelling destination for camping families looking for a cost-effective experience in a vibrant, family-friendly atmosphere. See these barrier islands in a new way while reconnecting with family, friends and your lovable pets. Many of our sites are only a few sandy steps away from the ocean, nestled near rolling dunes. Looking to mix it up? Find your spot near the calm waters of the sound or underneath blankets of live oak trees. Whether in a tent, a camper or recreational vehicle, you’ll find a place to suit your needs. Call or reserve online before you come, many sites are seasonal and weather dependent.
