Carolina Beach State Park





YesMust stay on or near the tent pad in the campground.

Can rent a group camp area (there are 2) for $13 - up to 6 hammockers without extra charge. Plenty of good trees and a pit toilet. Site 2 better for hammocks. These sites are about a 1/4 mi. hike from the parking area. - PappyAmos, Feb 2014.

Cliffs of the Neuse State ParkYesNote 2 and 3 ...Gunner76Group Sites 1,2 and 3 are real nice with lots of trees but road to get to group site is a PITA. While a 2 wheel drive vehilce can make it, I would be worried about driving on this dirt road after a heavy rain as it is one lane with very limited.places to pull over. Large parking area. Camp sites less than 100 feet from parking area. Pit toliet, no showers or sinks. Water at camp sites, Pleanty of picnic tables with a rock fire ring and steel cooking ring., Site 4 would be a creek as all the water in the area will be flowing thru it after a rain..
