Cape Hatteras/Outer Banks KOA Resort is the ultimate oceanfront camping destination in North Carolina.
The Atlantic Ocean on one side and Pamlico Sound on the other provide you with gorgeous water views, endless water activities, and a vacation like no other. If you love being outdoors, then you will love OBX camping on the beaches of Hatteras Island, NC.
Our island retreat offers a much different vibe from the northern Outer Banks, as Rodanthe and the other island villages have a more laid-back feel, perfect for getting away from it all. This area still has all the same OBX offerings, though, from water sports to nature-inspired recreation. If you are ready to relax, unwind and slow down with some oceanfront camping in North Carolina, plan your beach vacation to Cape Hatteras/Outer Banks KOA Resort.
