After check-in at the Front Office, HTP Staff will escort each guest to their specific campsite. HTP Staff will be waiting for you at the Guard Shack when you pull into the Park Entrance.

Trash Pick-Up

No need in worrying about going to the dumpster every other day. Your trash will be picked up everyday around 9:00am and 4:00pm. Sit it near the road next to your campsite and our guys will grab it! Please remember recycling bins are located at the bathhouses and at the dumpster on Reed Dr.

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 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 at the time of check-out after you return your key.

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).

Swimming Pool (renovated in 2018)

Our recently renovated, 70 foot long swimming pool is located right next to our Resort Office. This past year we added quite a few new additions to the pool and are very excited to see all of our guests having so much fun! This is also the area where we have many events planned throughout the summer. Please help us keep our pool clean by rinsing off any sand and dirt before swimming! Swim at your own risk, no lifeguard.

Live Bands & Music

Check out our Activity Schedule to see when all the different bands will be here! We’ve got an awesome line up this year so don’t miss out! All live music is located at either the Stage or Pool area of the resort.

Church Service

We’re excited to have Curtis Hyler & Jubilation back at the Stage to host our Worship Services throughout the season. They are some of the nicest gentleman you’ll ever encounter, and they sound great too! As always, anyone is welcome to attend our Sunday morning Worship Services. Those not staying in the park, please park in front of the Reservation Office and walk in. Services start at 9 AM, and dress is beach-casual.

Laundry Facillity ($)

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!

$2.50 to Dry

$3.50 to Wash

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.

Convenient Store & Wine Market ($)

The Emerald Isle Wine Market is located in the same building as the Resort Office. It’s packed with all kinds of good food, drinks and a few odds and ends as well. It’s also the best place on the Crystal Coast to find fine wine, craft beer and specialty foods. Stop on by and check it out!

Arcade ($) - UNDER RENOVATION IN 2019

The Arcade is located in-between the Pool and Go-Kart Track. The Arcade is currently under renovation until a later date in 2019.

Go-Kart Track ($)

The Go-Kart Track is located next to the Arcade, directly across from the entrance to our park. There are single, double, and kid’s karts! You must be 56” (single/double) and 48”(kid kart) to drive.
