I'm not sure this is the right forum or even if its of interest to anyone in the group and its definitely not 'egg' friendly but Cape Lookout National Seashore is one of our favorite Parks. Mods, please move or delete as warranted.
CALO is part of the NC Outer Banks and is just south of the much more famous Cape Hatteras National Seashore. Its accessible only by boat or private ferry services (several pedestrian and three vehicle) and is one of the least visited federal properties. There are no roads or amenities but the Park Service does offer a number of primitive cabins with kitchens, bunks and bath facilities.
We recently spent four days tent camping on the Portsmouth Island section, which is about twenty five miles in length with an abandoned village on the northern end.

Camping is allowed most anywhere along the dune line
A quarter mile long swash from the beach to the parking area for the village limits the number of visitors.

The Methodist Church is still the focal point of the Village. Its bell was purchased from Montgomery Ward in the early 1900's and sounds great even today. At its peak, the village had nearly seven hundred residents and a dozen or so structures still remain including homes, the post office and the school.

Cape Lookout NS has the most pristine beaches we've found anywhere on the east coast and, if tenting isn't for you, the Park Service cabins aren't bad at all. A 4WD vehicle does make it much easier to get around and would be a requirement to get to the village from the cabin area.
