“Primitive Campground on a beautiful lake”

Overall Rating

Pettigrew State Park in Creswell, North Carolina has a small, primitive (no water, electric, dump and the RV sites are dirt) campground located on Lake Phelps.

While the sites sit among old growth forest, it was a warm and humid summer day when we camped here requiring us to run our generator for a bit until the sun got down after dinner. Because there's no electricity offered, I'd recommend camping in the park in cooler months, but there's hiking and swimming in beautiful Lake Phelps. The campground does offer restrooms with showers which are older, but relatively clean.

The park is in a remote farming area in eastern North Carolina. We used it as a way point on our way to the Salina on Cape Hatteras in the Outer Banks.

Small but nice flat layout to this campground. Clean bathrooms with showers. Limited amount of campsites. Stayed here on the way to Cape Hatteras. Don't take the GPS turn on the dirt road, continue for another mile for a paved road that takes you right to the campground.

2018 Road Trip would stay here again
