Explore the Crystal Coast from Bogue Sound RV

Our waterfront RV Park is a wonderful place to spend the day relaxing, but our location at the intersection of Highway 24 and NC 58 is also an ideal point of departure for a variety of adventures on North Carolina’s Crystal Coast.

Bogue Sound RV is minutes away from some of the most beautiful beaches on the east coast. After a short drive across the bridge, you’ll find yourself on Emerald Isle, where you can find a spot on the pristine, white sand beach from a variety of public beach access locations. Driving a little further up the island will bring you to Indian Beach, Pine Knoll Shores, and Atlantic Beach. With so many great beaches to choose from, you can’t go wrong.

If you’ve had your fill of fun in the sun and need a day off, you can visit some of the historic sites on the Crystal Coast. Historic Downtown Swansboro, only about five minutes from BSRV, has a variety of shops to pique your interest. Serious history buffs may want to consider driving a bit farther to visit Morehead City, Beaufort, and New Bern to explore historic sites from America’s colonial period.

Of course, the Crystal Coast is known for its wonderful restaurants and fresh seafood. If you’re wondering where to eat, check out “Getting Hungry?” for the scoop on the best local restaurants.
