We stopped here to break up the trip from Shenandoah to South Carolina. It is a good spot and I wished we stayed a few extra days. The campsites near the river are nice. You can stroll 50 meters from your campsite and sit on the lovely riverfront. It is a nice campground with all amenities in good working order. A nice games room for the kids. New Bern is an interesting town and there is enough to do in the area to spend a 4 or 5 days. It is a charming southern town, similar, but much smaller than Charlotte SC. There are quite a few good restaurants.
This was a nice spot. September is shrimp season so everyone else was here to catch shrimp. That made it interesting but a bit noisy. Fisher folk are focused on fishing and when they get back to camp they don't care too much about the nice views, etc. They are friendly folks but like to shine their lights bright and turn the country music up loud. The toilets and showers were clean. It is a comfortable 20 - 30 minute drive to Charleston. There is plenty to do in the area and it is well worth a visit. In September the mosquitoes were a bit fierce so come prepared. Definitely a nice spot that will give you a good base to explore the low country.
