Located near Alligator River on the Little Alligator Creek. Fishing all around, just a short walk thru the woods or down the road. Public boat ramp in walking distance. Game lands are nearby with hunting for deer, bear etc. in season of course. No hunting allowed at Gator Creek. Not much light pollution so great for sky watchers. Lots of wild plants. Fiddle Head Ferns, Hearts A Busting, Wild Blueberries, Eelderberry and more. We have an outdoor shower and porta john located at my personal cabin but guest are welcome to use it or even pitch your tent in my cabin yard. City water available. We are adding a cooking shack for your use and hope to have it ready in a couple weeks. We do ask that you dispose of your trash appropriately because of the wild animals at Gator Creek. Hope you enjoy your stay.Pitch your tent anywhere on the wooded property. There are several nice places. At the present time there is a picnic table, outdoor shower, porta john and a fire ring down by my personal cabin you are more than welcome to use. I ask that you dispose of trash properly as there are animals around. We do offer a shooting berm for target practice. We are surrounded by public game lands and plenty fishing spots.

This was a perfect spot for us to make a base camp while we fished and viewed wildlife around alligator river.

Quiet, secluded paradise
Second time camping with Joyce and had such a relaxing time! Very quiet and secluded spot with zero light pollution at night so the stars shine extra bright. A quick 30 minute drive to the outer banks if you decide to leave this oasis for some reason. Plenty of land to explore while you’re there. Saw a couple critters this time including a hummingbird and a little black rat snake. Can’t wait for our third trip to Gator Creek!

Winter Camping at Gator Creek!
Gator Creek was a great base camp. I spent four nights tent camping in early February. From the property, I travelled 30 ish minutes to the northernmost OBX ORV ramps and spent most of my day time on the beach. Windy and cold but fun! drove a few miles on the sand and I cooked dinner over the fire. The cabin yard was a cool place to camp out. The fire pit, table, and (almost finished) cook shack create a great environment to be immersed in the outdoors! **A note about my visit - the neighbors are active hunters in the area. They did not exercise caution with regards to Joyce's property line.** Joyce is aware and has responded accordingly.

Secluded, close to wildlife refuge
Joyce’s Hipcamp was perfect! So private and secluded. The property was flat which made finding a camp spot super easy. Her amenities (porta Jon) were very clean. It was the midway point for visiting the two local wildlife refuges. Will definitely be staying here again and recommending it to others. We were visiting the local refuges to learn more about the red wolf population and we may have heard them howling from her property after dark (or maybe coyotes). Either way, It was magical.

Quiet, peaceful, lots to do
It was a fantastic trip! totally secluded, yet close to amenities, if needed. Fishing in the river was great, caught some big crappies. Saw tons of wildlife. It has everything you need to enjoy a laid back, no electronics style lifestyle (but have good signal for T-mobile!) and see a billion stars! I thoroughly enjoyed the Perseid meteor shower while there. Definitely will come back.
