So, I have been wanting to do a trip there for a while. The national seashore park has some backcountry camping sites. I'm looking to go on the weekend of Nov. 17. There's a meteor shower that night as well. The back country campsites are 4-10 miles back in. Originally, I planned to kayak out in the back bay. As I stated planning the trip, I found that the bayside campsites are closed for hunting that weekend. After double checking with the park rangers, I wouldn't be able to access the Oceanside sites from the bay. We COULD paddle back in the ocean, but there's regularly 3-4 foot waves in the surf. I have some lesser experienced people coming with me. That's not something I wanna try in November. With all of that said, it looks like we are stuck doing it on foot. We're gonna go to the one site that's 4 miles back. The problem is, there's zero fresh water there. At 1 gal a day, that's close to 17lbs of water to go in the pack per person for 2 days. Plus, we're hiking out across the sand. That's going to be a bit tiring. We will plan our hikes in/put around low tide in the hopes of being able to travel on the harder sand down at the water line though. Just thought I would share the planning stages here. Right now, the plan is still in its infancy.
