Great camp sites, clean bath house with hot showers. The trails are good with some awesome scenery. Once you get there it's hard to believe that you are right there on the edge of the town of Carolina Beach. Can't wait to go back!

I arrived after dark and found a perfect campsite - there was a trail at my campsite #74 that led directly to the water. I called the office number to say I arrived late and was lucky that someone was still in the office and said they would wait for me to get to the office and check in. The Ranger that waited, the campsite on the water, the cool breeze in the humid night air - all of it was perfect. I pitched my tent and enjoyed a night of light rain coming down on the tent, which was soothing and I slept great! I loved having sand in my tent in a matter of minutes - I really did! It's the experience of each camping trip that I love! It was quiet the night I was at Carolina Beach State Park and I highly recommend this park!

Peace this Day at Carolina Beach State ParkAnother view of campsite 74 at Carolina Beach State Park - it rained lightly while I was there and the rain hitting the tent was relaxing and the breeze provided a bit of relief from the humid night. I slept so great!Water view at Carolina Beach State Parkcamping at Carolina Beach State Park was a peaceful easy way to fall asleep - the trail leads directly to the water - very nice!
