    LOL, I was speaking more in terms of the general development full of strip malls and crappy restaurants with stupid names. Nags Head and Southern Shores is a carnival, but so is Rodanthe--all full of pasty, poundy Pennsylvanians. I prefer Avon and South.

    Hatteras and Ocracoke are great. I'd lean towards Hatteras. I went to Ocracoke last year and it is now overrun with those "fantastic" people mentioned earlier in the thread. Ocracoke has recently been rated "Best Beach in the US" (if not the "best"). Now all of these people are there. There are golf carts everywhere for instance. I'd elaborate, but I have never seen that since my dad has taken me camping down there since 89 (when I was 3). Pops even had his bike stolen. Never even had that happen in VB. Pardon the rant but that's my 2 cents.

    Not sure about camping cause I usually stay around Avon, Salvo so im kind of mid ways of the Island for surf ventures.....Ocracoke is basically a tourist trap and not worth the hassel so you'd be better off in Hatty.

    cape woods campground is in buxton on the back road and is closest to the breaks at the three jetties at the lighthouse beach. orange blossom bakery is on the main road in buxton. frisco woods campground is in frisco and closest to breaks behind the park service campground, frisco pier and hatteras village. the gingerbread house bakery is on the main road in frisco.

    Wow never relized the pennsltucky knew how to get to the outer banks, thought they all got stuck in OC, shame they spread that far down, I feel your pain. But to the subject, Hatteras , You can do Ocracoke island in a hour on a bike, then be done with it. sorry to say , worth a Free ferry ride to visit, but not worth a stay.

    Cape Woods! I got mixed up, haven't camped up there in a couple years. I need to cruise up that way just to get an egg and cheese sandwich and an UGLY!

    let me guess.. your homeboy who wants to stay at ocracoke is a longboarder.. kidding.. but really, dont cut yourself off from >50% of the swell that hits the islands. And all you Northeasterner haters may be in luck, the cost to get down there is insane these days, and tons of people are opting for cheaper rentals up in corolla.. so weird how when i was a kid, there were buffallo roaming the beaches in corolla and no roads, now for some reason, a lot of out of towners think its the only place that exists in obx. they trapse down to the beach with their big stupid hats and their kiddie pools.

    did you bring the pool? what? we're going to the beach.. but we have to bring a pool with us to the beach! duh! who goes to the beach without a pool anymore, this is America damnit!

    frisco woods for sure. theres also a national parks camp ground in frisco by the airstrip that huge and super cheap. Take the ferry over to ocracoke if the swell has some south in it. It's only a 30 minute ride.
