Well, well, well . . . look who is writing a Monday Story for all my camping friends near and far. I am coming out of my dog-days-of-summer snooze for a campground review for you. Momma Sharon and Aunt Becky spent all last week at Hatteras Sands Campground on Hatteras Island with Cousin Rob, Trisha, and Jackson. While The Cousins camped in Miss Anne, Mom and Bec stayed in a very PINK cabin just across the canal from them.
Originally I was supposed to go, but I knew that Aunt Becky would want AC and spreading-out-space and indoor plumbing, so I sat this one out. That's OK because it would have been an 8-hour trip in 90° temps. Besides, I gotta get geared up for my big annual trip to the MD DOG next Sunday!
Anyhoo, I wanted to tell you about Hatteras Sands Campground in case you were thinking about a camping trip to the OBX. Momma Sharon took lots of snapshots for me to share with you to go along with my Story.
The folks that own Hatteras Sands also own American Heritage Campground in Williamsburg, VA. The very first rally I ever went to was in early May of 2007 at American Heritage!!
Rob and Trisha were on a corner campsite at the canal and enjoyed good breezes all week. In fact, lots of sites are on the water and would be a good choice for you. Their site (#16) was grassy, flat, and roomy. There was plenty of space for Rob's easy-up, cooking station, awning, mat, and the campground's picnic table. Plus they enjoyed early morning breakfasts in the cool of the morning and gorgeous sunsets each day.
The PINK cabin sat across the canal from The Cousins and Mom was able to see Miss Anne and her two flags from their porch. It was a quick walk across the bridge for a visit.
There are 6 cottages (without bathrooms) and 18 cabins (with bathrooms) in addition to the 74 RV sites available. The PINK cottage was #9 and sat right at the bridge. The sunsets from the porch each evening were pretty spectacular.
I don't know how many square feet their PINK cabin had, but it was like a tiny house and perfectly adequate for a week at the beach. If Mom and Aunt Becky ever go back, they will know what to take besides linens and towels (2 small plastic folding tables for their bedsides, an alarm clock, 2 folding camp chairs, a twin Aero bed). The upper bunk bed served as a storage area, so everything had its place.
Mom said the AC worked great and the fridge and microwave came in handy. Wet towels dried quickly on the front porch. I think there were some pretty happy campers in #9!
