Campground in the Goldsboro/ Kinston NC area

Hello, guys and gals as some of you might know that my wife and I are planning a cross country trip to see my mother sometime in April/May do any of you who are in that area know of any good campground that we can look into?

Thank you for your comments, we are planning now, I have never been to any campground around that area, so I don't know of any around there.

I have done some search but not coming up with too many around that area, we have to have full hookup because we will probably stay there for a few weeks.

Since you're retired military, how about the Fam Camp at the AFB.

Seymor AirForce Base, I did grow up there and I know it all too well and that will be an option from well my mother is staying it's only 10 miles. My problem is one, the wife didn't like that to well and two I will be carrying, so I don't know too well about their policy as far as carrying.

If I have to, I might have to work that out those, thank you.

Most don't allow side arms, but they would possibly be a good resource as to what private CG's are in the area.

Yes, I agree, that's why I was looking elsewhere, but I have few more months.

There is a KOA in Bridgeton, NC. It is right next to New Bern, have driven past it many times as we live outside of Vanceboro. Doesn't look very big. It would be an additional 35 miles or so to the east. Will keep my ears open for others nearby

Okay, I will have to look into that one, I'm not sure how far that is from Goldsboro/ LaGrange my mother lives in LaGrange.

Oh, wow, I just check it out and they are charging $75-$80 a night and we would probably want to stay about three to four weeks. I put that one on the list those.

It is an easy hour or less drive, all 4 lane, highway 70, and mostly 70MPH. only slowdown is going through Kinston. A new bypass is on the way, but not ready. We live 20 minutes from that campground and never been there. I need to go check it out.

Oh, okay, I haven't look at it that way, I told my wife about that site so I told her that I will show her, and really, I don't mind the little drive and since is mostly hwy miles.

I have been through and to Kinston many times when I was living in LaGrange, which there is where my mother living at now, now my son is talking about coming down when we get there.

So have you check out the price there? I'm going to check it again and let my wife know.

My pleasure, Lagrange is between Kinston and Goldsboro, an even shorter drive, maybe 45 minutes.
