Blue Water Development Expands to North Carolina, Acquires Hampton Lodge Waterfront Campground

Coinjock, Nc. (July 24, 2018) – Blue Water Development, a real estate developer specializing in commercial and hospitality properties, has acquired the waterfront Hampton Lodge Campground in Currituck, North Carolina. This is the corporation’s first property in North Carolina and will be operated in partnership with Kampgrounds of America (KOA).

“We’re very excited to expand the Blue Water family into North Carolina,” said Todd Burbage, Blue Water co-owner. “Water access is the common theme connecting all of our properties, and this one certainly fits the bill with its stunning and expansive water views. We knew it was a gem as soon as we saw it.”

Located roughly 50 miles south of the Virginia-North Carolina border on 480 secluded acres abutting Currituck Sound, the family- and pet-friendly property hosts tent and RV sites, many of which are waterfront.

It offers a general store with groceries, and RV and fishing supplies; updated restrooms; laundry facilities; a recreation room and kids’ playground; and a pier providing easy access to fishing, crabbing, and swimming. It also offers an easy drive to many local attractions including the Currituck National Wildlife Refuge, the Currituck Marina & Restaurant, and the famous H2OBX Waterpark. The campground will host regular seasonal activities and themed weekends, from crab feasts to campfire cookouts, that will keep campers well-entertained on site in true Blue Water hospitality fashion.

Blue Water hosted an official ribbon cutting ceremony on May 11th during which they revealed a surprise dedication of a fire pit in honor of Jim and Anne Slade.

The Hampton Lodge Campground is open March 30-October 31 and is located at 1631 Waterlily Road in Coinjock, North Carolina. For reservations, call 757-303-1932 or visit its streamlined online reservation system at
