Ft Fisher is an open base w/many camping spots. We had a large shady back-in site. Hookups were close & convenient but saw others were not always standard set up. Some sites required pull in w/water & electric on one side & sewage on other. Confusing & some moved unit around for most convenient layout. Amenities were amazing: had very nice swimming pool w/chairs, lounges & a few umbrellas for shade, activities center w/multiple items to rent, I.e. Bicycles, beach equipment, etc. There was a pier well used for fishing. Registration center had a mini-store of some food items, snacks, beach equipment & clothing. Received mail here & no problem since this was my first experience using a mail service. Ladies at the desk were very sweet. There is a war museum on the base. Base is located across the street from the ocean beach. Had easy parking w/in the base & walkway onto the beach w/cart. Weather was perfect most days & ocean was refreshing in the blistering heat. Disappointed in the access to the ocean since the entry to water had about a 12" ledge to step down (was a surprise unless warned). Ocean bottom was stoney & sharp shells, hard on the feet. Sand bar allowed one to go way out. Base had a restaurant & lounge overlooking the bay w/a deck. Great sunsets from this vantage point. Stayed 2 weeks & hated to leave.
