I’ve been wanting to go camping on the beach for as long as I can remember, and no matter what anyone says, to me camping at Assateague isn’t beach camping.
So in order to check this item off of our bucket list, we’re teaming up with our friends at Augie’s Adventures and Overland Gear Exchange to spend Memorial Day Weekend on Cape Lookout National Seashore.
If you’re so inclined and want to join us for the weekend, we’re going to post up the details below, all of the regular camp out caveats apply.
Friday, May 26 – Monday May 29, 2017
Our ferry departs Davis, NC at 1 PM and we’ll be heading back home on Monday at the same time.
Cape Lookout National Seashore, the ferry will drop us off here. We’ll have cell service on the island and will update our position via e-mail and Facebook.
RSVP Get There:
Step 1: Drive your truck to North Carolina (preferably the side that touches the ocean).
Step 2: Get a ferry reservation, we used the Davis Shore Ferry Service, they were super helpful and a pleasure to work with.
Step 3: Camp on the beach.
Also if you’re planning on making the drive, shoot me an e-mail at Alex@DirtRoadTrip.com and I’ll make sure to push out our coordinates as we move throughout the weekend.
What You’ll Need:
Whatever you normally take camping, if this means packing your sectional couch and loading your hot tub on the trailer, by all means do whatever makes you comfortable.
Now keep in mind, the weather in the Outer Banks can fluctuate substantially so plan accordingly. Also you’ll have to be 100% self sufficient since the availability of fresh water fluctuates throughout the year. This should be common sense, but make sure you pack enough food, water, equipment, WAWA sandwiches, etc. because you’re only way on and off the island is via the ferry. Also remember this is a beach, so if you’re whiter than pre-steroid Carrot Top, bring some sunscreen.
Really this is not an official event by any means, so remember you accept all liability for yourself. This includes but is not limited to shenanigans, Sasquatch, and stupidity. Also remember to pack out ALL of your trash, and leave no trace!
We’re looking forward to seeing all of you, drive safe and we’ll see you on the sand.
Now for the legal stuff to cover our butt’s.
