Stayed here last year, cable is still unreliable and WiFi is now non existent, not just rv Park but entire base. Camp host was very knowledgeable while checking in on weekend. Base has everything from commissary, exchange etc and Walmart is just outside Slocum gate.

Our Veterans Day weekend visit was our fourth time here. Absolutely love this place and can't wait to return this year. We've been here for a few holidays and love how they decorate the campground. CAN NOT say enough wonderful things about Ms. Lori and the staff. They are all extremely friendly and helpful. For example, during our check-in with one of our previous stays, we were told about a potential storm and where to evacuate should anything happen. I don't know many places that would have been that mindful to share that type of information. As previous reviews had stated, the lots are spacious and level. Fellow campers are friendly. Great atmosphere. It's nice to come to a place like this where kids can be kids and make friends. That's what helps make the wonderful camping memories. If there was a "Con", it would be there is no cooling temperature control in the bathhouses. Some days during the summer were extremely warm, so to take a shower and immediately start sweating was uncomfortable. Would be nice to be able to control the temperature in there. Other than that, awesome place. Please keep up the great work that you do.

My husband & I enjoyed a month at Pelican Point Campground last fall. As always, it was a wonderful visit. Ms. Lori in the office is so very kind & helpful. The camp host was available if we had questions or needed assistance with anything. Maurice always has a smile & a kind word & works hard keeping the laundry room & shower rooms clean. The campground was in pristine shape, even after recent flooding in the area. The RV lots are very spacious. Campers are friendly. Sunsets around the corner at Slocum Creek are breathtaking! The base is clean & the commissary & MBX (?) are easy to access. We’re looking forward to returning this summer, God willing. This is one of my very favorite military campgrounds!

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.

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.

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!
