The wide variety of landscapes and ecosystems in North Carolina offers some of the most diverse camping on the east coast. Tourists may flock to the popular Outer Banks, but the best North Carolina beach camping can be found along the southeast shores of Hammocks Beach and Carolina Beach State Parks, where dunes, wildlife, and watercolor sunrises are sure to delight. And it's not just the coastal dwellers who can enjoy peaceful beach camping: North Carolina is bursting with lakes, creeks and rivers, so you can fall asleep to the lull of the water and waves no matter where you go.
