Electric and water services are now available at 23 of the camping sites at Oregon Inlet Campground on Cape Hatteras National Seashore. The upgraded amenities are expected to be in high demand, so it is recommended that reservations be made in advance.

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.

“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,” says Superintendent David Hallac.”Our staff has made excellent progress on this project.”

The Seashore also operates the Cape Point, Frisco, and Ocracoke campgrounds. 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.

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

The 2018 camping season extends to Nov. 26.
