This is not a traditional RV campground. A closed lighthouse that requires a key to unlock a gate when you come and go is not traditional. However, we found our visit to be quite pleasant. If you have an RV, it better not be too big or you will be challenged getting in. Getting through the front gate is tight and manuevering to your site and getting level can be a challenge. We stayed at Site 6 in a 31 ft Class A. When you arrive in your RV, I recommend walking from the gate to your site and leave the RV on the side of the street, where there is a large shoulder before cresting the hill. You will be glad you performed a recon of both the route in and site. It's only 1/4 mile. Having said that, we stayed for three nights in the middle of the week, and had no one else near us. NO ONE! Can't say you will have the same, but to get an electric and water campsite and be totally alone is "not traditional", but nice. Considering the extra step to get the key and the challenges to setup at one's site, I recommend staying two or three nights, but definitely not worth the hassle for a one night visit. You can obviously tour the lighthouse if it's open and the Maritime Museum in town. There is also a great walk along the beach at the Lighthouse State Park with a paved biking or walking trail. In addition, within convenient walking distance, are the Lighthouse Bistro and Blackbeard Brewery, which we recommend.
