June 2010 OBX Camping Meet!!!???

Found out from Sara that some weekend in June, she will be going to a bachelorette party down at one of the beaches (not sure which one). Well me and her dont get to go to a beach together this year because we are saving money. Soooo since she is going to go to a beach, I'm going to go to a beach. This isnt in spite or anything, i just figured I would take the chance to do something Ive always wanted to do and that is camp on the OBX. You would think that since I lived down there, i would have done this, but nope!

Now to the details. I wil be camping June 18-20(Fri-Sun) so thats 2 nights for a total of $40. Trent said it should be easy to double or triple up at the camping spots.
I will get a headcount later so i can reserve some camping spots.

Going:

Scott
Marcus (Maybe)
Joey (Maybe)

Your crazy man, you know how hot it is down there. I did that last year and it was miserable lol. The campground at Oregon Inlet is pretty nice though, right down from the entrance to the beach and the showers and bathrooms are in good condition. It gets PACKED on the beach though so just a fair warning. If you have a lot of people and want to park together your gonna want to get out there semi early. You can also walk to the beach but its a good distance to carry a cooler back drunk so just remember that lol.

Now depending on the weekend I might come down but I'll be in a hotel room with the girlfriend most likely. Unless we bring our friends and then we'll probably bring a camper.

You can easily fit 2 vehicles and 2-3 tents on each campsite as well so doubling up won't be an issue. Save some cash

alright sounds good, How much did you say it was per campsite? So really the only cost its gonna cost me is gas, two nights for camping, and what food i eat.

Also, guys, I'm going to be down there June 18-20th. Anyone game to go camping!? EDITED ORIGINAL POST

I do need to know at least by May 18th (a month in advance) so I can reserve us some spots

I think your right it was around 18-20. Your going to want to pick up all your food in Kitty Hawk or Nags Head, theres no anything down near the campground except for a small gas station type shop over by the coast guard station. I would fill up with gas up there too

lol, I know, used to live about ten miles away in Nags Head. But the OBX has changed alot since I lived there. So its only $20 per campground but you can have 2-3 trucks/people at one campground? SO other than that, i jsut need to get a headcount so I can get a reservation for 1-2 spots side by side. You said they have showers, so we're good to go there! Well, NC peeps, lets do this. Also dont forget about the Meet this month at Jordan Lake!

2 for sure, 3 might be pushing it. I would call and verify you can fit 3 before doing it.

I would love to come down Scott. I probably wouldn't stay the night in the campground if I decided to stay, but I am all for hanging out for the day.

I would consider it, but can't plan ahead like that.
I went last August (I think) and it was hot, and bugs were out in full force.

Honestly if I come down I might look at a hotel as well. I hate that you have to pay to camp, and you are 10ft from the people next to you, bathrooms are shared and always gross, too hot at night, etc... Might as well have a room at that point. Camping just isn't the same on this side of the country!

We should all get together and decide on a hotel, and all stay at the same place. That would be neat. Of course one of you older guys will have to "Buy" my room for me, being that I'm only 17.

If you don't mind sleeping in the heat then you probably wont have a problem. I just hate laying there and sweating, I refuse to do it. When we went the campground wasn't very full so the bathroom stayed pretty clean. But in the middle of the season I can expect them to get pretty gross when the campground is full.

Yep, I freaking hate trying to sleep when it is hot and humid. I'm use to camping places where it is not as humid, and it cools down more at nights (desert, mountains, etc). Sweating my ***** off all night isn't so much my idea of fun!

UPDATE!

Well Ive made up my mind what I'm going to do! June 18th (Friday) im taking the day off and heading out early to Hertford, NC (next to Elizabeth City) to spend the day and night at my Grandma's house (fist time since grandpa died). I will get up early June 19th (Saturday and head down to the beach), check in to the campground early and get setup. Then spend all day wheeling/fishing/drinking..lol. Spend the night at the campground (yes im going to rough it for one night). Do some more wheeling Sunday morning and head out sometime. Anyone who want to come can. If you want to camp, im fine with that. Trent said i can fit 2-3 trucks per campground. As of the moment, its just my truck and possibly mossyoak03 (marcus). So Joey (Silver) Trent, David, William (willinthe04ranger), etc....Come on down if its not just for the day. It'll be fun as **** fishing and wheeling! Like I said, i will be camping that night, so come on down!

Trent, how does the campground work, can I make reservations? Also, on Sunday, is there a certain time I have to be off of the campground (check out..lol)

Joey your 2wd right? The entrance to the beach is the worst, just lower the pressure and try to mob right through haha

Scott as for reservations I don't really remember, I would just give the campground a quick call.
