Brunswick Beaches RV Campground is located in Sunset Beach, part of North Carolina’s Brunswick Islands region. We’re less than an hour from Wilmington, NC, 2 hours from Fayetteville, NC, and 3 hours from Charleston, SC, and Columbia, SC. And while we have plenty of on-site amenities, if you’re looking for things to do outside the campground, there’s no shortage of entertainment, shopping and dining for travelers of all ages.
The Brunswick Islands region consists of 5 barrier islands with 6 beaches. It’s an area rich with maritime history that vacationers appreciate for the laid-back vibe and Calabash-style seafood. With an average winter temperature of 61 degrees and only 90 degrees in the summer, you can enjoy outdoor adventures all year long. And with more than 30 nearby golf courses, it’s no surprise Brunswick Islands is “North Carolina’s Golf Coast”.
If you’re visiting in May through October, you could take in one of the many educational tours or programs that give an up-close view of female sea turtles burying their eggs on the beaches, followed by hatchlings making their way to the ocean. You won’t want to miss this 200-million-year-old-ritual!
There are several ocean piers within a short drive of the campground, where you can fish for trout, croaker, king mackerel and more without renting a boat: Ocean Isle, Oak Island, Ocean Crest, Sunset Beach, and Holden Beach (currently closed).
The Brunswick Islands area is also home to expansive salt marshes. Not only are they another popular fishing spot, but they’re also a great place to kayak. You could catch a glimpse of a wood stork, one of NC’s largest water birds, or even a dolphin. Enjoy a sunrise paddle or schedule a sunset tour of the meandering waterways.
