Experience Purely Natural Beach Camping at Cape Lookout North Carolina
Take in an Undeveloped Beach Camping Getaway With Fabulous Ocean Views
June is National Camping Month! Are you looking for a camping experience that takes you literally away from it all? If you would like to camp in an undeveloped, pure beach environment, the barrier island of Cape Lookout, North Carolina is perfect. Unlike many traditional campgrounds, camping at Cape Lookout National Seashore has no formal campsites, and you will need to fend for yourself. Come fully prepared and you will have an unforgettable encounter that includes stunning sandy beaches and expansive ocean views. If you want an unforgettable camping trip, and are not afraid to rough it, this should be your next stop.
Island Camping With Sea, Sand, Sun, and Stars
To get to this unique location, you will need to take about a 3 mile boat ride. The island is part of the system of islands off the coast of mainland North Carolina. You will find white sandy beaches, with plenty of places to set up camp. You can climb the lighthouse located on the beach and take in the views. Because the night sky is so dark, it is the perfect place for stargazing from your campsite, where the night sky is awash with starlight. For those with a keen sense of adventure, you will not be disappointed. Other activities include:
Canoeing and Kayaking
Swimming and Sunbathing
4 wheel driving (bring your own with ferry access in certain locations)
Ranger guided tours and nature trails
In most situations you do not need a permit to camp, however if you have a party of 25 or more one will be required.
