Jerniman's Campground

(252) 928-0308

Jerniman's is a collective campground, gas station and golf cart rental business. The campground is the closest village accommodation to the ocean on Ocracoke Island, less than a half-mile shy of the first beach access road. It offers 29 sites, 24 of which can accommodate RVs and campers. Tent camping is allowed, and all sites have adequate space for parking. The sites offer electrical and water hookups, and some have septic as well. A communal laundry, bathhouse and dumping station are also on site. Adding to the convenience factor is a grocery store and hardware store right next to the campground. Reservations can be made online, and be sure to check their website for their list of fun events happening all year round. Hart's Hot Dog Hut is also on-site, open seasonally Tuesday through Sunday from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. for breakfast and lunch and Thursday through Saturday from 5 to 9 p.m. for dinner.
