The Refuge, developed by Malcolm & Susan Fearing lies on property that was once a distressed sand pit.  When a contractor abandoned the pit, Malcolm, whose family has been in business on the Outer Banks for over four generations, purchased the property and began the long process of reclaiming the land to an environmentally sound condition.

The restoration process was careful to maintain the charm of Wanchese, one of the few remaining East Coast fishing villages whose residents are hardworking people and have fished the windswept waters and beaches of the Outer Banks for generations. 

A truly “repurposed” property, this once environmentally challenged land now hosts a family friendly RV Park.  Overlooking the marsh just as you enter the Village of Wanchese, The Refuge provides an affordable outdoor recreational facility for visitors and annual campers alike. 

Wheelchair accessible elevated walkways complete with benches, invite you to venture into the marsh and experience the natural environment of our area.  Spacious campsites, a modern bath house with shower and laundry facilities and a covered outdoor pavilion over looking the water create a one of a kind camping experience on the Outer Banks.
