We stayed overnight at Trap Pond last Thanksgiving. There were a few campers there, but no one at the entrance to take our money. Been to Assateague a few times in the state park.

Raz,
My wife and I are also lovers of the OBX. Spend two weeks there every October. We usually stay at Camp Hatteras campground in Rodanthe with our 35' (3 slide)5er. We would ferry over to Ocracoke for the day while there. Always wanted to camp at Ocracoke but wouldn't put our big rig on the ferry. After years of camping we finally got tired of the large units and thats why we bought out Scamp 5er. This October we are going to camp at the Ocracoke NPS campground for the first time. We cain't wait. We will be there for at least 11 days. Last year while fishing at Oregon Inlet we were finding huge conch shells washing up on the beach. I've never found that many before. I found one huge dark blue one that was all orange on the inside. My wife also found the front part of a childs skull. She is a nurse and I'm in Law enforcement, so we both knew what it was. Turned it over to the rangers. However, could've been from a shipwreck many years ago???
Anyhow, great to see someone mention OBX. Great pictures. Thanks for sharing.

Wow Papa-T,
That was some find on the beach - skull - what did the ranger say?
I sure hope it was from a very long time ago

October is a fantastic time here (OBX) - barring hurricanes, etc.
******
btw - OBX is a fairly new acronym - Outer Banks. I believe one of my former co-worker's husband came up with it - his inspiration was the acronyms/abbreviations for countries (can't think of an example at the moment)

Ranger said exactly that. It could've came from a shipwreck 100 years ago. He was going to send it off to the lab to see if they could tell.
Here is a picture of our 8 lb Snchoodle at the OBX. Believe it or not he is 16 years old. He actually loves to wear the glasses, because he has cataracts.

If any of you who've been to the Outer Banks have at some time also been to the Florida panhandle shoreline, I'd be interested in knowing how you think they compare or contrast. Or how OBX compares to the Florida Keys. I was looking at St. Joseph Peninsula or the Pensacola area, where one can get out on a small strip of land. and I was thinking it might be similar to the Keys, which my parents took me to 3 or 4 times when I was a kid. Now wondering if OBX would also be very similar?

It's a long long way to the Keys from OK, but I'll be picking up my Lil Hauly in early June (it's been ready for a while now) and was thinking of visiting some shoreline as long as I was out that way. So I'm wondering which one I'd like better, OBX or panhandle?

D10? I don't believe we have but will check it out this weekend. Also, I've noticed the Orange Blossom while going and coming but have never stopped there - thanks for the suggestions. If its not our last day, we usually take an early ferry to Ocracoke and have breakfast at the Pony Island Restaurant. I'm not sure which I enjoy the most - seeing the sun pop up over the Atlantic or the crab & swiss omelet on the other side.

We'll be making a stop at the bakery Monday morning - thanks again and have a safe trip back.

We passed by Trap at about 2:30. Too early to stop. Of the three parks off Rt 13' I like Lums the best because of the grass sites. As we don't ever plug in it's also a little cheaper. Tried Assateague three times, got in once. At the time we had to go to the federal campground as the state one wouldn't take dogs. Watch where you step.

I'm sure you know you won't need reservations. The campground will be at 20-30% capacity except maybe Columbus day weekend. Mostly retirees. We should be there. How long we stay will depend on where else we go in the fall. Raz

Be aware there is no way you will park in their parking lot with a trailer. I parked across the road at the bank/county offices. Near the transfer station. We went down to the turtle pond near the light house to eat. Enjoy
