We have made our vacation plans and we are SO excited.
We are headed to Hatteras, NC for a week in July. We are camping [squeee!] on the beachfront [double squeee!] at a KOA there.
We have camped at a lot of campgrounds and I am sure there are several in Hatteras that are not as structured as a KOA, but we like that KOAs are always, without fail, clean, well maintained and staffed by wonderful people.
This particular KOA has guaranteed our site near the ocean [bonus!] and there are several activities within the park to entertain the kids if they are bored with the beach [as if. :)]
We are so, so, so anxious to go - we are writing the lists, stocking the chuck box and cleaning/accounting for various camping gear. We do need to buy air mattresses as I simply cannot sleep on the ground anymore and another tent because the girls have decided they want their own space - which is fine by us ;) - no problem girlies .... heehee
Plus this will be our longest time camping - the longest we camped before was 4 nights and we were only 30 miles from home, so that didn't count as a long time, like this.
I would love if anyone has any suggestions for good beach reads - I will spend a lot of time reading, I know it. The two genres I do not like are romance novels and horror. I will read anything else you suggest - so please help me!
