Overview

Overview

Great Island Cabin Camp is located on South Core Banks within beautiful Cape Lookout National Seashore just off the mainland of North Carolina. The historic camp has been a favorite of fisherman and beach goers for many years.

The camp can only be reached by boat, adding an element of both privacy and adventure. Visitors can travel by personal boats or reserve a spot on the ferry, which cruises across scenic Core Sound to South Core Banks to the Great Island Cabin Camp.

Natural Features:

Cape Lookout National Seashore is a low, narrow ribbon of sand running from Ocracoke Inlet, to Beaufort Inlet on the southwest side. At 56 miles long, these barrier islands consist mainly of bare beaches with low dunes covered by scattered grasses, flat grasslands bordered by dense vegetation and large expanses of salt marsh along the sound.

Recreation:

The park's sandy beaches are a prime location for fishing, exploring, beachcombing, swimming, birding or simply relaxing. Spring and fall at Cape Lookout offer what many consider to be some of the best fishing on the Atlantic Coast.

Kayaking is a popular activity at the park. With 112 miles of uninhabited shoreline ranging from docile sound to pounding surf, Cape Lookout National Seashore has become one of the premier paddling destinations on the Mid-Atlantic Coast.

Facilities:

Great Island Cabin Camp offers 25 rustic, wooden beachfront cabins for individuals and families or small groups of up to 12 people. Cabins range in size from 288 to 960 sq ft., and Cabin 2 is accessible.

Each cabin contains bunk beds and mattresses, a private bath with sink and shower stall, a hot water heater, a table and chairs. Small kitchens are equipped with cabinets and a propane oven/stove. A grill is just outside each cabin. Bathroom facilities are also centrally located within the camp.

Campers must provide their own linens, bedding, cookware, food and food storage, coolers, first-aid supplies and anything else needed during their stay. Most campers also bring flashlights or gas lanterns. Ice and gas are available at the camp office.
