From our Blogbook:
Our first stop is a beautiful little RV park in a residential area and within 8 miles of the Boardwalk at Atlantic City. Shady Pines Carefree RV Resort offers truly shadyed campsites with FHU for $37.80/night. Not hard to navigate to but with some heavy highway tolls to get into and away from it.

Next stop is within walking distance to the Atlantic beach at Delaware Seashore State Park. $37/night. FHU (Yes, including sewer in a State Park!). Gravel/gravel. Beautiful location with great views and includes beach access. Located in between Rehoboth Beach and Bethany Beach. Would stay here again but would avoid Matt’s Fish Camp Restaurant – overpriced and tasteless seafood.

Holiday Park Campground. Regular $48/night. Sandy sites. Dump station on the way out. Rate it rustic. Probably would not stay there again due to the horribly uneven pavement going in and the rude hostess.

Richmond North KOA/Americamps. $45.75/night. FHU, PT, EZ. Gravel/gravel. Campground is nothing special except economical propane. It is a favorite stopover for many I-95 travelers. A more inexpensive stop at the same exit would be
Ashland, VA. . Be sure to ask directions to Guido’s Italian Restaurant. Excellent!

North River Campground. Regular $40/night. FHU, PT, EZ. 6 miles off the main route. Sites circle a pretty 5 acre pond. Friendly staff. 50 minutes from Kitty Hawk, the Wright Brothers Memorial and the Outer Banks. Be sure to find a little diner near the campground by the name of Track I of Camden. Home cooking at its finest. Skip overpriced Kelly’s in Nags Head.

Moonlight Lake RV Park. Regular $32/night. FHU, PT, EZ. Historic NC town. Much to see and do. Small campground. Clean, safe – with friendly hosts. Take a trolley tour of the city. Stop for a float and popcorn at the Pepsi-Cola birthplace & soda fountain. Don’t miss great seafood at the Sting Ray Cafe.

Huntington Beach State Park.  $36.96 w/fees, 30Amp, water, dump station, beach This State Park is located on the Atlantic Ocean in Murrells Inlet, SC, just South of Myrtle Beach and just across from Brookgreen Gardens. The Park covers 2,500 acres and includes a camping area, day use picnic area, a large sandy beach with relatively few beach goers, hiking/biking trails, and many places to enjoy birding and gator watching.

The camping area consists of 131 campsites nicely spaced for the most part. Maximum trailer lengths vary from 30’ to 40’. They are arranged in loops around a green space usually with a combined rest room/shower building in the center. There are access trails to the beach from the camping area

Jolly Acres Campground. Regular $44.60/night. FHU, PT, EZ. Gravel roads and pads. Nice country setting. We wereblown away with the great menu of home-cooked Southern food at Shugg's Restaurant in town. Don't miss the opportunity to dine here if you pass this way.
