Camp Hatteras is a pet friendly resort.

Entertainment:  The Timeline Band

Barry Fedesco and his band are members of the Virginia Country Music Association. They have been playing in the Portsmouth and Hampton areas and Northeastern North Carolina for many years. They play venues like the Virginia Beach Farmers Market, Virginia Beach Campgrounds, and to audiences ranging in size from 20 to 250. Oh by the way, you loved them when they were at our Rally in 2013. They perform mostly old country, some new country, and rock n roll from the 50s, 60s, and 70s. They also play some beach music, can mix in a little Jimmy Buffet, the Eagles, and Merle Haggard along with others. Think about who you want to hear and then ask for it when they do their show on Saturday night.
