Discovered this campground and absolutely loved it. It’s away from the town in a beautiful natural setting, but only a 5 minute drive from the beach and the action in town - perfect combination! Facilities are clean with hot showers, tent sites are large, staff...More

We went to the park and walked around the water. We saw a lot of fiddler crabs. The kids really enjoyed watching them. Nice area to dock boats.

We’ve been to Myrtle beach a few times but enjoyed Carolina Beach more. The boardwalk is beautiful. Beaches are clean and always a nice surf to play in. Plenty to do and everything is close. Not over commercialized ! Will definitely be coming back !

We dropped in for an afternoon visit and enjoyed the park. We love to hike trails and enjoyed our walk on the trails here. There are nice overlooks of the Cape Fear River.

We had a fun drive south to the state park. We liked that it was a way from the active beach life. We only walked about a mile due to the thunder storm. It was flat and easy to walk around. We didn't see any...More

Campsite are variable in shape and size. You can go online to see them. I'd say most sites are large enough for two tents. My experience with hammock-tents is that you can always find a spot for them! :)
