Another travel day up the Coast about 137 miles to North River Campground in Shawboro, NC. It took us a little over 3 hours coming up US-17. They are really improving 17 throughout the Carolinas, bypassing the cities, and they are hard at work developing the route into a 4-lane divided highway all the way. Again there was great scenery along the route and we did run into rain off and on.

North River Campground and RV Park is about 6 miles off Highway 158, which is a major route from US-17 to the Outer Banks. It is worth the side-trip to get to it. It's 70 plus full hook-up campsites encircling a 5 acre lake. Total peace and quiet in a beautiful setting. They also offer tent sites, cabins and have a pool, miniature golf and a pizza parlor. $20/night for 30Amp and $25/night for 50 Amp. $25 for a pull-thru. A good bargain.

The first evening we unhitched and drove back into Elizabeth City for dinner and found "One Track Restaurant" quite by accident. It is not much to look at but we have found that to be the case with some amazing dining places. The waitress was super nice and told us all of the food, sauces, dressings, desserts, etc. were homemade in-house. We had spaghetti and barbecue and enjoyed them both.

We made an easy and interesting day trip to the Outer Banks and the Wright Brothers Memorial.
