  I Have Some Experience There
  Posted by: Kudzu on Aug-31-13 10:44 AM (EST)

The inlet there (Barden Inlet) has always been pretty kind to me. The 'hook' shape of it seems keep the water in check. Beaufort Inlet down at the other end of Shackleford Banks can be really mean when the tide is gushing out.

Camping on the ocean side of Shackleford is very nice. The breeze keeps the bugs away. I've seen tents set up on the sound side but I'd avoid it unless the wind was howling. Finding a spot to land on the sound side of Core Banks is very difficult unless you're up near the lighthouse.
