Electric and water services are now available at 23 of the camping sites at Oregon Inlet Campground.

The National Park Service says the upgraded sites will be in high demand, so reservations are recommended.

During the winter of 2019, the Cape Hatteras National Seashore staff will complete installation of electricity and water at another 24 sites, for a total of 47 with the utilities.

“These amenities help to meet the desires of today’s park visitors and provide a quieter camping experience for RV and tent campers by reducing campground noise that is present when generators are used. Our staff has made excellent progress on this project,” Superintendent David Hallac said in a statement.

The Seashore also operates the Cape Point, Frisco, and Ocracoke campgrounds. All campgrounds accommodate tents, trailers, and motorhomes up to 35 feet. Each campground also provides rest rooms, potable water, showers, grills, and picnic tables. Utility connections are currently only available at Oregon Inlet Campground.

Reservations for the campgrounds can be made by calling 1-877-444-6777, or on the Internet at www.recreation.gov, up to six months in advance.

The 2018 camping season extends to Nov. 26.
