Places to Stay in Ocracoke: Campgrounds

Ocracoke Island camping is the stuff of dreams. Imagine yourself sleeping in a place so dark that you can see millions of stars and so quiet that you can hear the roll of the ocean waves. That’s Ocracoke camping for you. Two types of Ocracoke Island camping are available. You can enjoy an oceanfront Ocracoke campground within walking distance of the beach or one that’s in the center of town, closer to the shops and restaurants.

If you choose the tent camping option, bring longer tent stakes for anchoring your tent in the sand.
