Electric and water hook-ups available at Oregon Inlet Campground

Electric and water services are now available at 23 of the camping sites at Oregon Inlet Campground.

During winter 2019, seashore staff will complete installation of electricity and water at another 24 sites for a total of 47 sites that will provide water and electric services.

National seashore superintendent David Hallac said “These amenities help to meet the desires of today’s park visitors and provide a quieter camping experience for RV and tent campers by reducing campground noise that is present when generators are used. Our staff has made excellent progress on this project.”

Other campgrounds in the national seashore are Cape Point, Frisco and Ocracoke. All campgrounds accommodate tents, trailers, and motorhomes up to 35 feet. Each campground also provides rest rooms, potable water, showers, grills and picnic tables. Utility connections are currently only available at Oregon Inlet Campground.

Oregon Inlet Campground has 120 sites. The camping fee is $25 per night without utilities and $35 per night with utilities.

Reservations for any of the four campgrounds can be made by calling 1-877-444-6777, or on the Internet at recreation.gov, and can be made up to six months in advance.

For more details, see nps.gov/caha. The 2018 camping season extends to Nov. 26.
