We stayed at Rodanthe Watersports one time and it was weird. We got there really late, like 1am and there was nobody there to pay but there were other campers, so we set up our tent, then in the morning there was nobody there to pay again so we broke down our tent and put it in the car and surfed all day then drove home. Was trying to pay but there was no one to pay! Maybe it's b/c it was in the winter, I dunno.
Camped at Frisco back in July - It was alright, too many RVs and few trees. If the conditions at Frisco isn't good, you always could drive 15 minutes north to Buxton. Heard that there were better campground in Buxton?
yea there is cape woods in buxton, anyone know anything about this place? Would the surf and wind conditions be about the same in buxton as in rodanthe?
From looking at a map, it appears that staying in Buxton would give you the chance to go to either an E or S facing beach depending on what works best for wind and swell direction. In Rodanthe, you are limited to the E facing beach.
I go camping at ocean waves at least three times a year. It is great!!! A bajillion times cheaper then KOA. Tent sites are only like 28$ as opposed to like 60$ at KOA. It is more of an RV park but if you are down there to surf you will probably be drinving to S-turns anyway. It does break there but it is kinda far out. And a little messy.
Hope this helps. I am heading down there today thru sunday, see ya there!
