Seashore Offers 25% Discount on Cabin Rates
Contact: Wouter Ketel, (252) 728-2250 Ext. 3020
Harkers Island, NC -- Superintendent Russel J. Wilson announced a 25% discount will again be offered, from June 1 through August 30, 2010, on cabin rental rates for the Great Island Cabin Camp (on South Core Banks across from Davis, North Carolina) and Long Point Cabin Camp (on North Core Banks across from Atlantic, North Carolina).
“With the current economic situation, many visitors are staying local,” noted Wilson, “and so we are trying to make a Core Banks vacation more affordable during the months when schools are out and the cabin camps have more vacancies.”
This discount will automatically apply to those who have made previous reservations for this time period.
Each cabin has bunk beds, a bathroom with shower, hot and cold running water, and a gas stove. Visitors must furnish their own cooking and eating utensils, linens, and ice chests. (There are no refrigerators.) Some cabins have electricity; at others visitors may bring their own generator or other light source. Before checking out, visitors are expected to clean the sinks and table, remove trash, and sweep the cabin. Pets are not permitted in the cabins.
Great Island and Long Point Cabin Camps open for the 2010 season on March 26, 2010. The Great Island cabins will operate until December 3, 2010. The Long Point cabins will operate until November 28, 2010.
