About: The reason I created this was because I was recently in the Outer Banks and I had to do laundry. Took me a couple of days to find the sucker between having fun and eating. I'm trying to save other visitors some time. The campgrounds further south may have public laundry facilities that I am unaware of at this time.

The locals may make use of the mile posts which are prominently displayed along both of the main north-south highways so I went ahead and added them here as well. (some posts are missing this year either due to vandalism, or a recent weather event) Virginia Dare Trail or '12' is locally known as the Beach Road, while Croatan Highway or '158' is locally known as the Bypass or the Big Road.
