Cabins come with ocean views or mountain panoramas in this southeastern state.
Whether you prefer the view from your cabin to involve misty mountain peaks or golden sands, North Carolina provides campers with options. Summer campers make a beeline for the Atlantic Coast, where you can rent a camper cabin at Carolina Beach State Park, check into a rustic wooden cabin right on the beach at the Cape Hatteras National Seashore, or escape to a coastal lodge in the Outer Banks. In the spring and fall, cozy up in a mountain cabin in the Blue Ridge Mountains, where the forested slopes provide endless options for hiking and mountain biking. There are cabins along the Appalachian Trail in the Nantahala National Forest, hike-in mountain cabins in Great Smoky Mountains National Park, and vacation rentals right on the edge of the Pisgah National Forest. The main camping season is from April through October throughout the state, but heated cabins make it possible to camp year-round.
