American Locations 14- Frisco Campground, Outer Banks

The trip is from New River, West Virginia, to Stinking Creek, Tennessee, by way of Long Key, Florida.

Frisco Campground, Outer Banks, North Carolina


When we left Cape Point Campground we decided to check out the ferry we would take to proceed on to Ocracoke Island. To get there we had to drive through three more seaside town – Buxton, Frisco, and Hatteras.



We drove to the very end of the road on Hatteras Island.



From where we saw a ferry coming in to dock.


We stopped by the ferry station to get the schedule, then drove to Frisco Campground. We got a site on a hilltop that gave a view out over the ocean.


It is a long trek from the top of the hill to the beach.


Looking back, you can see our motor home perched on the hilltop. You can also see a mound of crushed shells on the left ready to be spread out on the campground lanes.


People can drive down onto the beach here, too, with the permit.


That evening I & my wife took a stroll on the beach.




As you can tell, the surf was still agitated. Besides the big waves there are vicious hidden rip currents that can pull you out to sea. So it is best to not venture too far out into the ocean after a hurricane until the water settles down. We only stayed one night at Frisco, after having spent two nights in both Oregon Inlet and Cape Point.
