Squeaky Clean & Modern Restrooms
We have 3 sets of Men and Women’s bathhouses throughout our resort. There is also 1 handicap bathroom located in the Red Section on our Resort Map. They’re kept locked at all times in an effort to keep them very clean. Your help is appreciated!
You can obtain a key to our bathhouses with a $5.00 cash deposit in the Resort Office. This money will be refunded to you upon the return of your key(s).
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.
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).

Laundry Facility ($)
Our Laundry Facility is being remodeled and will not be available for use until May, 2021.
Our Front-Load Washing Machines, Dryers, Detergent Machine, and Folding Station are located in the same building as the Red Section Bathhouse (on top of the hill). They are all coin-operated an there is a change machine inside the building. Load ’em up and enjoy the beach in-between cycles!

Please keep in mind that our washing machines are HIGH EFFICIENCY. This means you do not have to put a lot of laundry detergent in them for them to wash thoroughly. If you put too much laundry detergent in them, it will cause a soap-suds overload and they will lock up until all the suds have been rinsed out of the machine. The amount of time they are locked up with vary between 1 and 3 hours.
