The 2020 Cape Hatteras National Seashore camping season at the Cape Point, Frisco and Ocracoke campgrounds will begin Friday, April 10 and end Monday, Nov. 30.

Thanks to a multi-year campground modernization project at Oregon Inlet Campground, the seashore’s most popular campground stayed open all of last year. Read more about Oregon Inlet Campground’s electric and water utility hookup upgrades at 47 sites.

All campgrounds accommodate tents, trailers, and motorhomes up to 35 feet. Each campground also provides restrooms, potable water, showers, grills, and picnic tables. For more details, go to:nps.gov/caha/planyourvisit/campgrounds.htm. Reservations can be made by call 877-444-6777, or on the internet at www.recreation.gov.

Campers should be aware that multiple loops within the Frisco, Cape Point, and Ocracoke campgrounds may be temporarily closed over the next several months in order to finish improvements and repairs at the campgrounds and to complete portions of a Federal Highway Administration paved road and parking area preservation project.
