Wilmington KOA

The minute you set foot at Wilmington KOA, you’ll see for yourself why we won the prestigious Founder’s Award for the past 3 years, a coveted honor that proves we’re leading the way in the KOA camping and lodging experience. Our relaxing nature retreat is hidden in the heart of Wilmington’s city life, providing the perfect blend of solitude and entertainment. With sprawling Southern Pines shadowing our RV resort and luxurious cabin accommodations, you and your family will experience the fun of camping with all the comforts of home. There’s something for everyone – from a sparkling swimming pool and cozy game room to a stocked camp store and even a playground for your pets. And when you venture beyond the campground, our friendly staff will help point you in the direction of wherever you want to go – whether it be the historical U.S.S. North Carolina Battleship, a romantic riverboat cruise, or the North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher, one of the region’s largest aquariums. Plus, you’ll find yourself only five miles from the sun-drenched sand and surf of Wrightsville Beach and mere minutes from the charming historic downtown shopping and dining district. You have to see it to believe it.


From I-40, take exit 416A-416B to merge onto Hwy 17 North toward Topsail Island/New Bern. We are located at 7415 Market Street (Hwy 17).
