Harkers Island, NC -- Superintendent Russel J. Wilson announced a 25% discount this year, from June 8 through September 1, 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). 

 

“Traditionally, the camps have been used by fishermen, especially during the spring and fall fishing seasons,” noted Wilson, “with the current economic uncertainty, many visitors are staying local, and so we decided 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 2009 season on March 30, 2009. For cabin reservations please call the following numbers, Monday through Friday, 9:00 AM – 2:00 PM.
