7 Spectacular Spots In North Carolina Where You Can Camp Right On The Beach

To be honest, I’ve always preferred the beach more in the fall than summer. The temps are still warm, but the crowds have diminished. You still get a cool breeze every now and then, but you can fully experience the most of what the beach has to offer.

A peaceful ocean soundtrack to fall asleep to at night, gorgeous sunrises, warm days and of course the most beautiful sunset – that’s what a typical day camping on the beach is like. Fall is the perfect time to pitch a tent on the beach, and luckily in North Carolina just that is possible. These 7 campgrounds will offer you an unforgettable experience.

There’s really nothing like waking up to the sound of waves crashing on the shore – and also nothing like falling asleep to that sound. I’m ready to pitch a tent right beside the water – what about you? Have you visited any of these before or want to add any to the list?

Sure, camping is fun and all, but what about owning your own private island in North Carolina? These five could be yours!
