    Wow, sounds like you're on the right track! I've heard good things about Huntington. Of course, the Outer Banks -- and in particular Cape Hatteras and Ocracoke Island -- offers excellent camping. Further south, Little Talbot Island State Park in northeast Florida is worth a look. Lastly, check out Virginia's Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge, which offers an awesome hike-in route to False Cape State Park and primitive, beachside camping at Barbour Hill (look out for loggerhead sea turtles, who nest on the beach between May and September!).

    I lived there for 4 years and favorite time of the year was off season. Typically "the season" would end after Labor Day. Temps are still nice. I personally love the beach in the mid/late fall,winter,and spring (before Memorial Day)quiet and peaceful. Enjoy your trip when you go!

    Where to stay in OBX?

    First think about where you want to stay... we stay in Duck, a small town on the Northern half with good waves but not much else. Kitty Hawk and Nag's Head to the south are larger. Corolla is the farthest north and has a grocery store (and BrewThru!) We rent through these guys: (http://www.resortrealty.com/index.htm) but there are plenty of options. Most rentals are pet-friendly but charge a ~$150 pet fee. But the best part? The beaches in Duck are pet friendly and allow the dogs off-leash, all the time!
