Just curious as to how your plans have evolved? We're gonna be at Camp Hatteras in 78 days, but who's counting?

Camp Hatteras at Rodanthe (it is south a good ways) is nice and popular and you are within easy drives to many attractions (already mentioned here). Can get sites very close to the ocean as well

Question for those of you who have visited the OBX with your trailer - have you taken your rig on the ferry before?

I am planning a trip and thought making a "loop" would be the best way to see everything on our visit. We would drive in through Manteo and camp in the north for a couple of days, then make our way down to Hatteras/Buxton for a few more. Eventually we would take the ferry to Ocracoke and leave on the long ferry to Cedar Island.

I'm curious if entering/exiting the ferry (as well as the ride) is uneventful or would you recommend avoiding the ferry system and driving back out through the north end?

I went with my 2 grand daughters 2 summers ago.We stayed at the KOA in Rodanthe.It was not crowded and we literally walked a couple of feet to the dunes,then over them and there was the beautiful Atlantic Ocean.....Theres sooooo much to see and do that its almost overwhelming....Overwhelming in the fact of taking in all its beauty and nature and slowness!!!! We are from Baltimore where everything is fast and people in general are not as hospitable as I wish they were...So taking in the OBX was an absolutely great bit of time warp for us!!!!!

We have taken the ferry numerous times, although never with the trailer. I've seen camping rigs on the ferries (along with tractor trailers) so there is room. Other members will likely have done this and chime in soon. Enjoy your OBX trip!

I personally have not. My parents use to do it all the time with their PU. They told me when we started to discussed going. To make sure to have reservations if you have a trailer. We still have not done the trip, but will sometime in the next few years.

Good post. Just a thought, the Hattera to Okracoke Ferry requires no reservations. The Okracoke to Cedar Island ferry does...

Good to hear, we will be at the KOA Hatteras in 4 weeks. First OBX experience for the kids - 6, 8, and 11.
