Gorgeous over the water sunsets, all year long! Riverfront on Neuse River, with kayak launch and small swimming and sunbathing beach. 

Please note:  Check-in on Thursday is only offered 4pm or later.  Weekends (including Fridays and Sunday) check-in is allowed at 1pm.  Monday is blocked off, but an exception may be made if you arrive on a weekend day (Fri., Sat. or Sun.), and want to extend your stay through the next week.  Contact host for details, and to have us unblock the additional days you desire. Max. length of pull-behind campers 21', max. R/V 32'. 

Beautiful views of New Bern across the river, particularly gorgeous sunsets. Lots of waterfowl, including resident duck population, as well as my own small flock of chickens (no noisy roosters, just a few egg-laying hens :) 

Private flush toilet access, as well as hot/cold water deep basin sink with pull-out wand, provided on-site.

Great place to Kayak, three available for free use. Nice sandy beach, perfect for taking a dip to cool off :)   Shade trees and picnic table, fire pit.  Lots of fishing opportunities, both from shore and by boat! Launch kayaks easily from shore.  Trailered boats may use a public boat launch 3 miles away, and there are poles in front of the campsite to moor your boat.

Summertime breezes are usually prevalent from river, keeping bugs down and nights comfortably cool. Take your pick of spot, RV/Van/Truck camping limited to gravel site, tent campers may opt for either shade tree in front yard with level and grass, or gravel site where RVs normally park.  30 & 15 amp 110 Electric service, as well as sewage connection available for extra fee. (selected through the 'Extras'). For R/Vs, campers, back in to site required. 

Concerts in New Bern at converted Maola Milk Plant is now a concert pavilion.  It is located directly across the river from my property.  Union Point is also within paddling distance, and has a host of free concerts nearly every weekend.  See the included photos for scheduling of artists.

Mosquitoes are not nearly as bad as they are in many of the other backwater campsites that you will find are located in the upper reaches of the creeks, and typically surrounded by marsh land.  These marshes of Pamlico, Craven and Carteret County are magnets for mosquitoes.  We do not have the amount of stagnant water that is prevalent in a lot of the other sites around the area, as the site is not adjacent, nor near to any marshland.   As well, the river is constantly moving, either by wind and/or current and is not a breeding ground for mosquitoes.  Lastly, normally there is a good breeze to keep them in check.  HOWEVER, as with any outdoor activities in eastern NC, they do abound and occasionally in the right conditions they are prevalent.  Bring bug spray, JIC!

Your privacy is important to me, and though I offer two sites (tent or R/V), I will never book more than one of them for any given night.  The place is all yours, when you are here :)

Pet friendly and kenneling options available.  See the many extras we have to offer!

Come see Winston, the famous fishing dog!

Important notes: 

*Electric is not included in the site price, no exceptions.  It is available for an upcharge, in both 15 and 30 amp depending on your needs.  No 50 amp service available..  See the 'Extras' for details.

* Max length is posted at 35', and is defined as 'entire rig'.  Ex.  Car and towed camper, or R/V and towed car.  The space is a bit tight for R/Vs or campers with dual slides.  Max length cannot be exceeded, else you will have trouble backing into the site. 

*During prime season May-Oct., I have a minimum two-night reservation requirement for weekend stays.  Guests MUST book two days to reserve for a weekend. (Friday & Saturday -OR- Saturday & Sunday).  If it is Thursday of any given week and you see that the upcoming weekend is open on my calendar, I will relax this requirement and allow a single-night booking.

Steve was a relaxed and generous host. Site was perfect for our rig and the sunsets and fire pit were magical. Winston the dog was a love, and thr fresh eggs Steve offered made for an epic omelette. Great jumping off point to visit New Bern and Croatan National Forest. Would return In a heartbeat.

Steve has a wonderful place, the location is amazing and he was a incredible host making us feel very comfortable and welcome. The views are gorgeous and he has the sweetest dog, Winston. To top it all off you are so close to everything in just a very short drive. We will definitely be back to camp here again. One of my favorite Hipcamp spots so far!

Gorgeous waterfront property! Steve and his trusty sidekick Winston 🐕 were the perfect hosts. The property sits directly against the river and provides gorgeous views all day long. Took the paddle board out multiple times and the water was calm and beautiful! He also has numerous kayaks available to take out on the water if you'd like. His pup, Winston, is the friendliest, sweetest good boy who will show you all around the property and greet you every morning when you wake up. Loveed my stay and would highly recommend it to others!

Loved having you and Pirate :) Hope you all will come back soon, and you had a safe journey back home. Glad Winston didn't bother you too much, he is just a friendly old dog and likes the attention, just like his dad lol Take care, and happy camping!

Enjoyed a beautiful sunset and a great breakfast on our one night stay. The whole family enjoyed talking with Steve, watching the free range chickens go by, and playing with his dog Winston. Incredible view right on the water. Plenty of room for our roof top tent on the gravel space next to Steve's residence.
