  • No need to worry about trash piling up during your stay. Trash is collected each morning and afternoon! Please leave your trash beside the road at your campsite for our road-side pickup. Trash will be picked up each day around 9am and 5pm. Do not leave trash outside on your campsite after 5:30pm!
  • Do not leave doggy bags out for our roadside garbage pickup. Dispose of these bags at the appropriate doggy bag stations.
  • We are not responsible for disposing of anything other than common RV and campsite garbage. We will NOT pick up couches, mattresses, tables & chairs, grills, umbrellas, tent & canopy frames, paint cans, appliances large or small, bicycles, etc. Dispose of these items at the county dump: Solid Waste & Recycling, Swansboro, NC 28584.
Emerald Isle Bike Path

The Town of Emerald Isle has developed over 20 miles of bike paths that connects you to all of the shopping, entertainment, and dining areas on Emerald Drive! This is the prefect way to get around the Island for those of you looking to explore.

Squeaky Clean & Modern Restrooms

We have 3 sets of bathhouses in the Resort: 1) next to the Pool; 2) in the Blue Section; 3) in the Red Section. We keep them locked at all times in an effort to keep them safe and clean.

You can obtain a bathhouse key with a $5 cash deposit in the Resort Office and it will be refunded upon return.

Cable TV

Our cable is Analog, not Digital, so you are able to chose from around 60+ channels. Please bring your own Coaxial Cable if you plan on using cable. If you do not have one, they are sold in the Resort Office. If you have issues with you cable TV after arriving on your site, please do the following (2) things:

  • Turn your antenna booster off and/or satellite switch off and make sure you have switched it to Cable TV.
  • Do a channel re-scan on each of your TVs to program it to our channel line-up.

If the above (2) steps do not work and you are still not getting a connection, please call the front office at 252-354-2250 and we will send someone down to take a look at your setup.

Free WiFi

With 1000+ devices at any given time, our WiFi network will not run like a personal, home network. WiFi connections are not reliable in a campground environment. Due to the capacity of our WiFi, please keep the following things in mind when planning your stay with us:

  • We cannot guarantee 100% WiFi coverage at any point in time and at every location throughout the resort.
  • There is no charge for WiFi, so no credit will be given to you if it is unavailable.
  • Our WiFi is not designed for streaming video, downloading documents, pictures, videos etc.

Please take this information in consideration when finalizing your reservation(s).
