Places to camp on or near a beach

Does anyone know some great places to camp on or near a beach? Preferably in VA, MD, or DE.

1st Landing State Park in Va. Beach. Not on the breach, but pretty darn close.

Thanks I read about that place but wasn't sure how close it was to the beach. Is it a nice place with things to do for the kids?

What about state park with lakes? There may be a better chance of finding a campsite backing onto water.

There is only a dune separating many campsites from the ocean. Several nice board walks are available to get to the beach.....no walking across the dunes is allowed.

There is no swimming pool or video arcade for the kids. Plenty of nature trails, bike trails, and the beach to entertain.....at least from my standpoint.

Camping near the beach, still 15 minute ride. Ocean City MD, We stay at Castaways off Eagle's Landing Road.
Best place near the beach and camping has to be Myrtle Beach. There are 4 very large Campgrounds that border the ocean. Lakewood, Pirateland, Ocean Lakes and Myrtle Beach Travel Park. We've stayed at 3 out of 4 and this year are going to Pirateland, which will be our first time there. They are all very nice places.

Assateague Island State or National Park. Outstanding beach camping, wildlife (including the famous wild horses), 20 minutes south of Ocean City Boardwalk, great surf fishing, clamming, crabbing, surf or bay kayaking, etc....
