Outer Banks West KOA Amenities
If you are looking for a campground right on the water then this may be a good choice. Outer Banks West KOA is on the point in Coinjock, NC right on the Currituck Sound, just across the sound from Corolla and Duck, NC. Being right on the water offers lots of fun things to do. If you happen to have your own kayak, canoe, paddleboard or other watercraft, there are two boat ramps on either end of the campground for your use. If you didn’t bring your own, they do rent paddleboards, kayaks and large floatables at the store.
Of course you can always just play in the water if you’d like. Fishing is always an option and they have 5 piers where you can fish or even crab. We have never tried crabbing, but the lady working in the store was telling someone how to go about it, so maybe next time. While they don’t have a swimming pool yet, they are in the process of having one added. There is plenty to do at the Outer Banks West KOA.
Aside from the water, many other activities are in the center of the campground. For the kiddos, they have a large playground and a HUGE jumping pillow. There are also several sets of cornhole boards on a concrete pad, stone fire pits with adirondack chairs around them for relaxing, and picnic tables with umbrellas just outside the store/snack bar so you can enjoy your ice cream cones in the shade.
In that same area, Outer Banks West KOA offers a laundry room and bath houses. The bath houses are more like private bathrooms; unisex lockable rooms that each have a toilet, urinal, sink and shower stall. They also have a volleyball court and a game room/arcade. Sites that are offered are everything from tent sites to waterfront deluxe patio sites. Most RV sites are back in and they are all 30 or 50 amp full hookup sites
Things to do near Outer Banks KOA
This KOA is in a more secluded area so there aren’t too many things really close, but with all of the water activities and fun stuff the campground has, you don’t really have to leave to have fun. We did visit Sanctuary Vineyards for a wine tasting which was less than a 30 minute drive. If you don’t mind driving a little farther, you could visit Kitty Hawk or Nags Head, NC which are both full of lots of shops and locally owned restaurants. There are also large fishing piers in that area as well. Even further away, you can visit Corolla and take a tour to see the wild horses that live on the beach there. It is such a beautiful area, it’s definitely worth the drive!
Restaurants near Outer Banks West
When you’re camping at Outer Banks West KOA, there aren’t many nearby restaurants. We did try the Coinjock Marina which has something for everyone, but specializes in seafood of course. Don’t forget the snack bar at the campground if you’re just looking for a hot dog, pizza, snack or even ice cream. If you’re looking for a broader selection, you’re going to want to head over to the Outer Banks where there is a larger variety of restaurants.
