May 5th, 2017

One of the top 5 military campgrounds we've visited, the new Pelican Point FamCamp doesn't disappoint. Sites are large and level. The grounds and facilities are clean and well maintained. Our late arrival was handled efficiently by the host, who was courteous, professional and knowledgeable. After the daily airshow of Harrier and helicopter ops (they should charge extra for that!), the park was very quiet. Overall, a great facility and value. We stayed in a 36 foot 5th wheel.

April 14,15,and 16 2017

My wife and I stayed there for Easter weekend, It is one of the nicest camp grounds we have ever stayed at. The office staff were incredible, They also have a camp host for after hours and weekends. All you have to do when you leave is drop your cable remote at his site. He also has the a list of sites for late arrivals. It was a very clean and managed site. The pads are about 20x40 ft. with a picnic table. They do have pull thru site there also. Roosevelt gate has a height limit of 13.6 ft. Slocum gate is higher . 100% id check in progress. Was a great time.

Summer months 2016

Excellent stay! Stayed at RV park for in the summer of 2016. RV sites are large and clean, and Kayak launch at the RV Park was was outstanding, they even had a floating slip designed just for kayaks so boarding kayak was a breeze. Fishing was excellent, caught some flounder and Red Drum while venturing out on a fishing kayak. Also caught some shrimp off the dock area, other folks there were catching blue crab with nets. Will definitely come back again in 2017 summer!

November 2016

RVs are no longer limited to one gate. DOD vehicle sticker requirement was cancelled several months ago; ID is all that is needed. Nightly rates are $25 after November 1, 2016. One of the nicest military parks we have visited. Park is well laid out -- some sites are pull-through but all sites have plenty of space for RV and vehicle parking, plus picnic table. The sites here are full hookup and wonderful: level, concrete pads with light-topped poles which include electric options and cable hookups. Clean well kept grounds. Wifi worked well. Staff was great to work with. We came in on weekend, so registered with staff host (office closed on weekend). We had difficulty getting our cable setup (which ended up being a problem with our RV connection, not the park's connection). The park host came over and helped us figure it out. Showers, bathrooms, and laundry w/TV room (two washers, two dryers) are all in one building which was well maintained. There are individual rooms for each toilet/shower (3 each gender) and you will need the code for access. Also need quarters for the laundry ($1.50 per wash or dry). PX, Commissary, Bowling Alley, Theater all on base. Also can get propane filled at the Outdoor Rec building; however, car wash is now an empty field! Restaurants and shopping abound right outside gates. Things to see within 30 minutes or so: New Bern, Fort Macon/Atlantic Beach. River is close by but not visible from campground. We stayed four nights, but would have definitely stayed longer if our plans permitted.

Very nice, well kept campground. Extra wide concrete pads. Good WiFi. Only downside is the rather clumsy cable TV setup. Campground staff worked hard to get our connection operating. I am told the system will be upgraded in the next few months. It appears that there are a lot of active duty homesteaders so recommend calling ahead as soon as possible to ensure you get a spot. Price is right. This is the only campground we've stayed at that has handicapped sites (3) so if you qualify consider asking for one of these spots as they are the closest ones to the showers/laundry.

Dec. 27 2015 to Jan. 27, 2016

First time here and Lori and Julian are top notch and Ed filled in one week and he also was attentive and helpful. The sites are some of the best we have seen in FamCamps as they are very long and wide with a very level concrete pad and a picnic table. Lots of grassy area between sites and we are in site #6 so had the deer from the woods behind us come for a nightly visit around midnight. Since we came here after visiting family for Xmas in the Raleigh area lots of places along the Crystal Coast are closed so will come in the spring or fall next time. A trip to New Bern is delightful and full of history so be sure to go there. During the winter time you can request an extension a few days before your scheduled departure date and if sites are available you could probably stay longer.

November 2015

This is a very clean, friendly location.  Many miles of asphalt paved running/biking trails about 1/2 mile down Monroe to Roosevelt Road.  The park's bathrooms and laundry facility are password protected for each camper for admittance.  There are three men's and three women's private restrooms with enclosed shower.  Always clean, plenty of hot water , I wish all facilities were like this!  Laundry has a lounge with TV, sink, books and games.  There are two washers and two dryers.  Bring your own changes (quarters only), as there is no change machine nearby.  Office and checkin are easy and very friendly.  Wish we could stay longer than the 30 day limit!  Lake within 5-7 minute walk, commissary short 5 minute drive.  Lots are hugs and all level concrete pads.

Lori and Julian who take care of the RV park do it with such professionalism. The stay was fantastic. Double lots and the atmosphere was great with the sound of freedom (jets and Helio's) flying over periodicially. Highly recommend this Diamond in the jewel. We will always come back here when ever in the area. My son is stationed here currently. All the necessary shopping and recreation is so close and available. Thanks again to Lori and Julian for running and taking care of a great RV park. Jobs well done.

A little out of the way but an excellent park. Sites were large with concrete pads. Well manicured cable TV good WiFi and golf course. Nancy was a great park staff. This park is as good as Kings Bay or Pelican Roost.

This is a great clean rv park with new pads. The sewer was about 16 ft away on the site I used but still everything was great. There is no playground but they are right next to the water and had great wildlife. We saw a bald eagle flying by and lots or birds. The host was nice and the DOD office/shop lady was great and really helpful.

A bit off the track of 95, but close enough going up 17 to make useful. A hidden treasure from the Corps. We had been through it, but never stayed over. Excellent everything! Concrete pads, big enough that we didn't need to unhitch, water, electric, cable, wifi, sewer. Bathhouse was clean. Hope it stays this nice for a long time!

L.E.S. left this review using the Directory software: - Ee arrived just after closing and were greeted by Lori who had assigned us a spot via phone in route. Upon parking the camp host Julian introduced himself and took my name and then offered any assistance setting camp. Very courteous and professional staff. The park is immaculate. New bath house, double pad, power pad and cable ta-boot. Very nice park! We took a trip around Emerald Isle on Lori's advice. Spectacular public beach for miles and miles with free parking. It was 68 degrees in December and we owned the whole beach to ourselves. The park is very peaceful minus the occasional free air show. Overall AWESOME experience. We'll be back...

Grounds were very clean and well lit, and amenities were in great condition. Camp host was helpful and very professional. Please note the camp host can only accept cash, so either arrive while the office staff are present or pay by credit card over the phone. As noted by others, there are no fire rings or picnic tables at the sites, but there are a number of picnic tables for on a grassy area near the middle of the park. The showers and laundry are clean well maintained. This park is very quite. There are no playgrounds or other "recreation" areas for kids in the park but there are a number of recreation areas on post and in the area. The electrical/water/cable hook ups are near the front of each site, so one may have pull forward more than normal or use extensions to reach the hooks ups. Absolutely a park we'd come back too when traveling or exploring eastern North Carolina.

August 10-15, 2014

We stayed August 10 - 15. The sites were very spacious. The site we were on was slanted from the back toward the front and again from the driver side to the passenger side. It looks like this is by design to allow for water drainage. So, be prepared to do some leveling. If you have a Class C like me with no leveling system then make sure to have leveling blocks to drive up on. Remember the fridge works better when level; especially if operating on propane. The grounds were very well kept. The laundry and lounge were clean. The TV in the lounge needs some repair as the picture comes and goes. Not a problem really as you do not camp to watch TV. Three are three restroom/showers for the women and three for the men. Each is a separate room with a door that locks. Very spacious room and shower. The only down side was that I called April 14th and reserved a space. I checked in on Sunday and the Camp Host did not have my information. He assigned me a spot for the night. Monday morning I checked into the office and she too could not find my information. Thankfully I had all the data that Lori had provided me on the phone back on April 14th. Computers are prone to lose information! I will be back here again!

This new park is a jewel with its generous spaces and well kept premises. The staff members are extremely accommodating and friendly, the showers, restrooms, and laundry facilities are clean. Bring your kayak or canoe and take advantage of Pelican Point's waterway, a short drive from the RV park. Base stickers are not needed to enter this facility. We did use the main gate but others at the RV Park indicated they used Slocum with only their ID card. We came through Slocum with the car after an excursion and only needed to show an ID card. Call ahead to verify access control.

This is an excellent RV park with nice, wide pull-thru concrete sites and great hook-ups. It is a short walk to get down to the the river for picnicking and fishing. The WiFi was great. There is a nice commissary and exchange on base as well as several fitness facilities. There is no recycling at the RV park, but a comprehensive recycling facility is located about a mile from the park on Access Road. The $150 per week fee is very fair. We have stayed at numerous military RV parks across the country, and this is one where we would definitely stay again.

April 8-12, 2014

The camp host took my reservation and the office called and confirmed it. Campground was fairly easy to find and all the gates recognized my Homeland Security decal on the vehicles. The park is still very stark looking with just a small cherry tree at each site and no other landscaping. Lawn is mostly weeds mowed very short. Sites are about 45' wide, one after another. Wish there were some shrubbery between. Brand new post for utilities with two hangers for cords. Excellent power and water pressure. But not even a picnic table. There's a nice community room with TV and a good laundry room. Four picnic tables sit in the middle of one loop. Restrooms/showers are individual but gender-assigned with three each. I can't praise them enough. Everything was functional and spotless. Is there a reason the dumpster was outside the park on the road? Nor were there any recycle containers. $25/night is too high for April and October. It's not a prime location, although the coast and historic sites were within driving distance. I see little reason for a checkout of 1100 - it's not like they have to clean the site or rake the concrete. The manager was looking forward to improvements and expansion.

E.S. left this review using the Directory software: - The new campground is great. The sites are spacious and you do not feel cramped. There is a great bike/walk/running path just outside of the campground. The bath house/laundry is very clean and well maintained. The office has some RV supplies for sale.
