The CurbCurshers are on the road for their second week of vacation in 2008. This time we actually took the RV out the State of Florida for a few days and headed to North Carolina. Lady CurbCrusher has always been a fan of lighthouses, and of course I like aviation stuff, so the Outer Banks of North Carolina provide a little of both: Four easy to visit lighthouses, and the birthplace of powered flight.
But, the challenge is to get there. It’s about 800 miles from the CurbCrusher homestead to the campground we’re headed for in Waves, NC. That means we wanted to stop somewhere to break the trip up. Our choice was Rock Ridge Campground in Rock Ridge, NC. I couldn’t find a web site for the campground, so the link just shows you where it is. The campground is located about one and a half miles off I-95 near Wilson, NC.
I’m not sure of the total number of sites, but the place was fairly large. There are a number of pull through sites and 30 and 50 amp service and sewer hook up. We took a electric-water only site as we were just staying the night, and the cost was $20.00 with a AAA discount of $1.00. The site was a pull-thru, so the Saturn didn’t even have to be unhooked. The roads in the campground are dirt, and the sites are grassy and shady.
As far as amenities, they have a pool and playground so Little CurbCrusher took time to enjoy both in the evening after we stopped. The park is large and there is a pasture near the front that has some cows and an ostrich. There is a lake/pond on the site with a number of ducks that were calling it home during our stop over. The camping area was shady and comfortable with a reasonable amount of space between sites. In some ways the park had more of a state park feel than an RV park feel.
We would definitely stay here again as an overnight stop. If we had a reason to spend time in the Wilson, NC area, we would probably use this place as our home base as it was very pleasant. If we lived within a couple of hours, we’d definitely consider this as a place to go for a weekend.
