Below is another photo from the 1965-1966 brochure advertising Hyde County mainland and Ocracoke Island.
This photo shows the campground that was located between the OPS museum and the NPS Visitors Center...where the large day use parking area is today. (Follow the directions to the left to enlarge the image.)
Does this scene look familiar to any of our readers?
