Located in the Neuse River Recreation Area in eastern North Carolina, Flanners Beach Campground is situated on a bluff overlooking the scenic Neuse River and within a half-hour drive from the Atlantic Ocean and Intracoastal Waterway.

Natural Features:

The Neuse River is a coastal waterway where saltwater meets fresh, and is approximately two miles wide where the waters meet. The river empties into the Bogue Sound just a few miles down-stream.


The area includes a three mile non-motorized trail. Water activities abound and include canoeing, kayaking, and fishing. Hunting is also popular in the area.


The campground has 41 sites; 22 of the sites offer electrical hookups. Amenities include a bathhouse with private hot showers and an adjacent day-use picnic area with access to the Neuse River beach.

Nearby Attractions:

Special places in the area include the Beaches of the Crystal Coast of North Carolina, Tryon Place (the original governor's mansion of the thirteen colonies), and Fort Macon (an original pre-Civil War Fort).

Know Before You Go
  • 22 campsites have electrical hookups, and all sites can accommodate RVs and tents.

  • In addition to the basic campsite fee, a $5 surcharge fee will be collected onsite for all campsites with electrical hookups. This fee is not subject to Interagency Pass discounts.

  • No full RV hookups, electrical hookups only.

  • No boat ramp available.

  • A few sites are designed to accommodate two times the number of people that a single site can accommodate. The cost for those sites is double the single site fee, plus double the electrical surcharge.
  • Don't Move Firewood: Help protect our forests! Prevent the spread of tree-killing pests by obtaining firewood at or near your destination and burning it on-site. Moving firewood is illegal in some states. Visit dontmovefirewood.org to learn more.
