Beachfront Camping

Since we have gotten our Camper, we have gone to parks and mountains. I realize its probably time to take the DW to the Ocean.

Anyone have any recommendations for Beachfront camping. I want to have Electric and see the ocean. Everything else is icing. I know I am probably late to make a reservation for January/ Febuary timetable, but i can always call and possibly make reservations for the year after.

Thanks in advance.

If you want to wait later in the year, end of April or the first of May, I would suggest Hunting Island SC. It's usually full during the summer and all the school vacations, but during the "off-season", you might luck into an ocean front site. It is beautiful. $32/night with water/electric.

It's a long shot but it doesn't hurt to keep an eye out for availability due to cancellations. Due to a change in plans I am double booked for Christmas and will be cancelling at one of the campgrounds, most likely the state beach. Life happens - I have picked up reservations for an ocean front site a couple of times in the past. I wouldn't count on it but I wouldn't rule it out as a possibility either.

Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...

MD Assateague State Park has electric, I believe. Not sure about its oceanfront-ness.

That said, Camp Gulf is on my bucket list!

Myrtle Beach had CG's that are at the beach, behind dunes. I've stayed in Ocean Lakes and Pirate Land. They're both nice, but Cajun's pics have me wanting that kind of site.

Either Red Coconut on the Gulf in Ft Myers or Beverly Beach Camptown on the Atlantic in Beverly Beach just north of Flagler Beach. Just stayed at them both in the past month. Both are full hookups and right on the beach. Red Coconut is my favorite...
