Don't let the map scare ya! It's not that bad once you get inside. They will lead you to your site and help you get situated. The times I was in Ocean Lakes, I stayed in section HH, with my TT. In Pirateland I stayed on site 227. I wasn't sure how we would get to our site in PL, but they took us there and helped me back in. They saw that I was comfortable and started telling me that they pull a golf cart a week out of the lakes and the week prior to my visit, someone went right off the edge with their camper , There are a lot of posts about both places in the forum. I like both places alot but favor Ocean Lakes. My DW favors PL. I hope it helps.

Otter lake in the Poconos. They have a lake beach. Very nice campground. Drove through it last year and will be staying there over Memorial Day this year.

It's well beyond your 8 or 9 hours from western PA, but in Florida, there is a campground right on the water:
Welcome To Beverly Beach Camptown RV Resort | Beverly Beach Camptown

In Maryland, I feel like either the state or national park at Assateague is quite close to the beach. Very limited hookups (only electric at one or the other).

I actually don't know of anywhere else that's on the water. None of the NJ campgrounds that I know of are beachfront.

I just found this from Google:
Ocean Front RV Parks in Virginia | USA Today

I also found comments on this one, "Hunting Island State Park in South Carolina".

We really enjoy the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Our favorite place is Camp Hatteras Hwy 12 @ Mile Post 40.5 between Rodanthe and Waves, NC. It's a 50 acre facility with campsites on the ocean and across the highway on Pamlico Sound. There are protecting sand dunes on the ocean side so you can't see the ocean from your RV. On the sound side you get some of the most beautiful sunsets I've ever seen. Good staff very good facilities. In the same area is Ocean Waves Campground at Waves,NC. Much smaller with only 68 sites. Many of the people there are serious surf fishermen. Several very good restaurants in the area.

I found this one:
Bar Harbor RV Resort - Maryland

it's on our list, especially since we live near it.

Hunting Island State Park is beautiful, the beach is great. But be careful. The reserve america map is not accurate. It makes it look as if some of the campsites are very near the ocean. In reality, they are quite a hike!

Another vote here for PirateLand. If you want a quiet location Frisco Woods Campground in Frisco (near the Hatteras Lighthouse) on the NC Outer banks has a beautiful view of the Pamlico Sound. Beautiful sunsets.

Two more state parks to look at: Edisto Island near Charleston, SC and Huntington Beach near Myrtle Beach. The beaches are beautiful! Once again, look at maps to try to get spots near the beach access points. Also, have to book early!!!
