August 2018

I stayed at Pelican Point for a couple nights August 2018. As bad of shape as the Marine Corps base was in and how the scarey local community looked this has to be one of the nicest RV parks that I have stayed in. It's clean, new, and spacious. Spaces are concrete, oversized, and level. I was checked in by a lady named Lori who I found to be extremely pleasant, helpful, and friendly. This park had WiFi and cable included in the rate. The bathhouse was very clean, new, and in great shape as was the laundry facilities. I gave it two stars for the location for obvious reasons.....location. You have to drive a distance to get to somewhere nice. Constructive comment, this park really needs more spaces and needs to be expanded. Its 25 spaces stay full. Overall, this rv park is professionally managed and is in really great shape.

We returned for 3 weeks again this year & we’re not disappointed! Miss Lori & Miss Carissa in the office we’re akways smiling & so helpful, as was the camp host. Grounds always tidy, good WiFi & cable. Met a sweet family there, whom I hope to keep in contact with for years to come! More washers/dryers added to laundry facility, which is wonderful! Cannot say enough good things about this campground & hope to return next year! May God continue to bless our military! ???

My wife and I loved the RV Park, the office staff was excellent, the facilities are very clean, there is plenty of room between sites, and the hookups and concrete pad space is more than adequate. If you’re into kayaking make sure to bring yours or rent one, if your into bicycles and walking your in the right place, miles of walking/biking trails. There is a kayak launch site about 400 yards from camp ground, you’ll need wheels on your kayak to get there but the road is paved and the kayak launch site is the best we’ve seen. Slocum Creek is a great body of water if you just want a lazy paddle or you can fish as well. We spoke with the camp host and he is a wonderful helpful guy. This is a great place to stay, we will be back to Pelican Point.

A great campground in a great location. Small and quiet with level concrete sites and an excellent bathhouse. The base is big with a nice walking path and a lot of eating establishments that can be used by everyone on the base. The Croatan National Forest is nearby and has many hiking and biking trails. Need to be aware that DoD Civilians need to be sponsored and cannot get on base with a DoD Civilian Retiree ID. This was the first time we were denied access. We were turned around at the gate and had to go to the Pass and ID office outside the gate to get advice on how to get a sponsor. Fortunately the Recreation Manager was in his office and agreed to sponsor our two week stay. Also, USPS mail will not get delivered to the campground address so use Gen Del at the Havelock Post Office if needed.

First time visiting this park. Outstanding! Office staff was very helpful during the reservation and check-in. The park is extremely well kept including the shower and bath facility. Sites are large full hookup with all the newest utility stands. Only minor issue is the bright lights at night. Between the lampposts and bright yellow lights on the utility posts, there's sure no need for any flashlights in this park. My personal preference is for a darker night-time experience just to be able to see the stars, but that's probably just me. It certainly does add to the safety factor. The park is also within easy walking distance of the river where you can watch boats and beautiful sunsets. Great for kayaking too. Bring your own if possible. Rentals are available, but not at the campground. Since Hurricane Matthew in 2016, you have to go elsewhere on base to pick up a rental. This is a wonderful location too. We spent a day touring beautiful New Bern just a few minutes away and another couple of days at the nearby beach towns. Will definitely return.

This was our first time here, and certainly won't be our last! Beautiful, spacious sites & campground with friendly & helpful staff & campers. Enjoyed all the jets that few over & especially visiting with our military men & their families, makes me feel so proud of our military! Cannot brag enough on the office staff - such kind ladies! (Staff at Mayport & Destin Army Rec Area can certainly take lessons from these ladies!) The only reason I gave a 4 is because campers could benefit from more than one washer. The whole facility was clean, & the sunsets over Slocumb Creek were breathtaking - sunsets that only my God can paint.

July 23 - 30, 2017

We stayed at the MCAS Cherry Point old RV park about 10+ years ago and enjoyed the local area. This year we decided to return for a one-week stay to once again explore the North Carolina coast and to see if the Pelican Point RV Park is as good as rated in other reviews. Yes, Pelican Point RV Park and the staff deserve those high ratings and compliments. The park is great; it was well designed with good driver side view angled back-in and pull-thru sites, plenty of space between the sites, large concrete slabs that can easily accommodate the largest RV’s, the utility hook-ups are located away from slab giving you extra room for positioning your RV on the slab which allows you to fully utilize the slab space for your outdoor activities, the grounds and facilities are clean and well maintained, and finally, MCAS Cherry Point is located in Havelock, NC which, in our opinion, makes it a good location to set up a base camp for day trips to visit the many surrounding historic, recreational and dining out sites. Over the years we have traveled up and down I-95 and US-17 many times and never gave this area, known at the Crystal Coast, a second thought. We believe that subconsciously we thought it was too far out of our travel route and the highways were not the greatest for driving a large vehicle. Today the highway conditions have changed with the improvements to US-17, NC-24, and US-70. Getting to this area has become much easier – we enjoyed our trip down from Wilson, NC (I-95) to Goldsboro (NC-264 & I-795) and then eastward on NC-70 to Cherry Point. We stopped for lunch at a beautiful rest area located west of New Bern, NC on US-70. Since we are here for only seven days we choose three days for playing tourist and the remaining days as do-nothing days. We are enjoying our stay but did not allow enough time to visit all the great sites in the area, therefore, we look forward to not waiting another 10 years before returning to this 5.0 rating MCG. A big “thank you” to Cherry Point and all those involved with the design, construction, and operation of the Pelican Point RV Park – you are doing a great job.

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.

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.

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.

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.
