Status: Open through Sat Nov 28 2015   Season Dates


Long Point Cabin Camp is located on North 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 both privacy and adventure to the trip. Visitors can take their personal boat or travel by ferry, which cruises across scenic Core Sound to North Core Banks, to Long Point Cabin Camp.

Natural Features:

Cape Lookout National Seashore is a low, narrow ribbon of sand running from Ocracoke Inlet on the northeast side 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.


The park's sandy beaches are a prime location for fishing, exploring, shelling, swimming, birding and 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.


Long Point Cabin Camp offers 10 rustic, wooden beachfront duplex cabins on the Atlantic Coast for individuals and families or small groups. Visitors can rent one half of the duplex (sleeps six) or the whole duplex (sleeps 12). Cabins 9-20 have a connecting door in the center. Each unit is approximately 500 sq ft., and Cabins 9 and 10 are accessible.

Each unit contains six single bunk beds with mattresses in a combination sleeping/eating area with ceiling fans, a table and chairs. Kitchens are equipped with cabinets and an oven/stove. Private baths are located in each unit, along with a hot water heater and lighting fixtures. Cabins 9-20 have propane heaters. Cabins 3-8 have air conditioning. 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. Ice and gas are available at the camp office.
