Overall this is a nice famcamp. Sites have 20/30/50 amp service, water hookup, cable TV, sewer, and OK WIFI. Gravel and fairly level sites on main drag going in and sites have shelters covering picnic table, no firerings. If you have base sticker it's easy to get to the CG from highway 172 from the north or south. Check in and check out times are a little earlier than most, check out is 11 AM and check in is noon. The CG is just a couple hundred yards from the beach but about a half mile from the beach that allows pets. CG checkin was simple and easy, we had made reservations about 10 days in advance and had no problems with checkin. Prices have gone up a bit since our last visit, they are up to $24.50 per night now, still not bad when you consider you are so close to the beach. There is a new little store which is open from Thursday thru Monday which is the highest usage for the area. Unfortunately the store was closed for the weekend we were there, I guess due to the holiday. The bathroom/shower was clean and well stocked while we were there but is showing its age. There is a laundry with washers and dryers available. Good bike riding area along the beach road, must wear helmet on base. Fishing is available both on the beach and the intra coastal but you will need a license. All in all we had a good visit here and will go back in the future.

We stayed in our 30 ft motorhome, level enough sites, nice covered picnic tables, very convenient to go to the beautiful sand beach. The office has a chart on shark teeth, we found a few. Staff very helpful. Loved watching the helicopters overhead and fishing pier. Once we figured out the draw bridge opens on the hour and 1/2 hour, we could time our trips on and off the island. Only downside: A long way from any base facilities, a bit pricey ($24.50).

Stayed in a 40 motor coach pulling a car. The sites are not paved, but were pretty level so we had no problems. No pull thru sites, so you have to take the car off the trailer and move the trailer, but we were allowed to put it next to the RV, so that was fine. The staff was friendly and the sites have covered picnic tables which is nice. Cell phone reception was fine and cable was available. Loved watching the helicopters overhead and watching the draw bridge right next to our site. The beach is easily accessible and has handicapped access. Several people were fishing at the intercostal waterway (probably 100 feet from our site) and catching fish regularly. Only issue we had was the set up for getting a permit for the car we were towing. They did not ask us to get one until we were returning to base after being out shopping and that was a good thing, since we could never have gotten into the area for the pass with our RV. Be prepared to take in your registration and proof of insurance, or you will be making a trip back to your car and loose your place in line. We would stay again.

PLEASE NOTE: the campground rates are going up on October 1, 2013 from $17 to $24.50 or 44% which is ALMOST the same as our retired pay increase! Other than the rate increase it's a great place to visit.

What a great place to stay! We called about a week before Memorial Day and we were able to get a spot. We stayed in the loop and really liked it there away from the main area, close to the fishing pier and the Intercoastal Waterway. We loved the pet beach, though I do wish, because it's a pet beach that they could be off leash. Seems silly to me to have a place for them and then not to allow them any freedom. Each gravel site had its own covered picnic table usually with a clothesline around it to hang wet towels, etc. I was not impressed with the WiFi. It usually took me about an hour or so to get connected and then it would lose the connectivity and not let me back on. The water hookup is on the opposite side of where the sewer is. If you don't have a long enough water line, well, you won't find any close by. The little MCX is fairly well stocked, and as others have said it is quite a little haul to the main side commissary/MCX. We will definitely stay here again, the cost was outstanding for the location and time of year that we visited!

What a hidden jewel. This is a fabulous campground. If you like a quiet, beautiful beach this is the place for you. It is quite a distance from the main interstate north, south travel route so this would be a destination campground. It is such a tremendous value. We had a full hook up site (electric, water, sewer), multi channel cable, very fast wifi and a tin roof covered picnic table. To top it all off, it is a short walk to a lovely beach or to the pier at the intercoastal. The check in staff was very helpful. In fact my husband was experiencing some eye problems and they were extremely helpful in finding proper medical care. Also, our motorhome was experiencing some mechanical problems and they worked with us with no hassles to adjust our departure date and provide a refund. The sites are gravel, somewhat spacious but they do slope to the rear. Our Verizon signal was exceptional and we were able to easily use our roof mounted satellite. The base exchange was very large and also the commissary was outstanding. Hated to leave this bit of paradise but hope to return soon.

Decent sites with gravel. Water connection is located behind next site picnic areas. Cable TV is excellent. WiFi is excellent and responsive. Camp Host walks the entire CG at least 3 times a day and is ready to assist in info. Temp CG office is South of CG. New Temp Mini-mart is convenient if you don't want to drive to the MCX/Commissary which is not exactly around the corner. Head/shower facilities very clean. Laundry facilities also clean. Ocean breeze is very nice and cool during the day and makes for ideal sleeping weather. Boat traffic on the ICW is nice to watch. Office asked about dog but didn't require proof of shots even though I had the entire record. This CG is great for relaxing and tanning on the beach. Highly recommended.

EDI left this review using the Directory software: - This is a real stickler! I stayed on Military Campgrounds all across the country and never had a problem with my dogs. This place requires that you present actual shot records from the vet. I am all for having pets shots up to date but you had better have your shot records with you or you will not be allowed to stay. Loved the fenced Dog Run!

This is an awesome campground. Stayed here 2 weeks in the off season. The park and facilities were spotless. Friendly staff to assist your needs. You are right next to the beach and can hear the ocean at night. Can't beat the price. As stated previously go over the draw bridge and turn right to check in. They are in the process of building a new beach bx/annex. Main exchange and commissary is on the mainland about a 20 to 30 minute ride. Base traffic is very heavy at times so expect delays. If entering from main gate off NC24 travel about a mile or better to Sneads Ferry Rd on left look for signs to Onslow Beach. This is a very active Marine Camp so you can expect to hear and see Marines training. During our stay they were firing 155's about a half a mile from the campground and Ospry helos were flying overhead day and night. I am not complaining as this was music to my ears but let the spouse know there will be some noise and some nights into the wee hours of the morning. During your stay be sure to check out the $3.00 movies on base also a well stocked commissary with great prices.

Just stayed for two weeks that ended Nov 4th. It was great as usual. My wife and I both love it there. They have changed one thing. Now from Nov thru March you can rent for a month or more and get an additional 10% off. The only drawback we had was the Wi-Fi was slow this time. I've heard that they have had problems since the Hurricane. Still the best bang for the buck.

I was able to stay an extra day normally it is 14 days but on the off season you can stay longer if there is opening. I enjoyed the hospitality, the Atlantic Ocean which is only about 75 yards with swimming, sunning,surf fishing (10 days for 10 dollars) or you can fish off the pier in the Intercoastal Waterway the PX/Commissary is great with plenty of activities right on the base. I would mention the WIFI is not working well since the Hurricane but Cable is great. All in All I wouldn't hesitate to come back.

Fantastic as always. Posting mainly to advise that the check-in office is not in its usual place behind the (temporarily closed) exchange. After you cross the bridge turn RIGHT and go to the end of the parking lot where you will see the temporary office. Plenty of maneuver room, at least in the off season.

Currently staying here and loving it. The beach is very close to RV park. We have to drive a bit to the park we use to take our dogs but the fact that you can is awesome. Very friendly and helpful staff. Only drawback is the very loud beeper that goes off every time someone goes into the ladies bathroom. Will certainly come here again.

Still have 3 nights left in our current stay. Pros: wonderful people here, beach is CLOSE. Ran on the beach 2 days in a row and jumped in the ocean after, walked 75 yards back to RV. Can't beat that! Cons: Beach exchange has been closed now for an hour, not to open again until next season. Regrets: cannot stay longer.

WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We loved this campground! The staff is really friendly and helpful. They are building stuff all over Lejeune. The MCExchange is undergoing a facelift but still well stocked. Should be finished by the fall. I got a chance to play golf on one of the 2 courses there and it is well maintained. Best days to play are Monday thru Wednesday. If you have never been to the protestant chapel you should make the time to go. The windows are beautiful!!! Each Marine Division is represented with the major battles fought and their parton Saint. If you are coming from the south you can get to Onslow Beach off Rte 172 and miss the base traffic. We plan to go again next year.

Still a great CG. They are in the middle of getting a new office building so for now they are in a temporary building to the RIGHT. Look for the signs right after you cross the bridge, otherwise if you follow the GPS, it takes you right to the vacant lot where the office used to be. Our only hitch was that the beach bath house now only has cold water...? The bath house in the CG had hot water for days.

One of the best campgrounds we have experienced. The cost is excellent. We love meeting new people, and the beach is the best! The rules of the campground could be more consistently enforced. Office personnel all need to be told the rules, because there seems to be different interpretations. The rule for pet "pick up" needs to be enforced!

One of the best Military RV parks we have stayed in. Beach is about 75 yards away. Good facilities in the park, catv, good water pressure. Only drawback is the occasional late-night Oprey and Helo ops but that is a truly minor drawback. Base is huge and has ample facilities. We have stayed at quite a few military rv parks and this one ranks up there in the top three. Getting reservation wasn't hard; in fact, we were able to extend our stay here. Would recommend it and will stay here again. We stayed from May 11-22, 2011. Excellent cable and wifi service. The price cant be beat.
