Hatteras Island - NC

I know some don't care for the wide open feel of these campgrounds (no trees, just grass, sand, some concrete), but Camp Hatteras and the KOA in Rodanthe/Waves/Salvo are literally right on the water. We enjoy the KOA. We park 3 rows back from the dunes. Short walk using the walkway over the dunes and you're on the beach. You can walk across NC 12 and go crabbing in the sound. Check it out on Google Maps/Earth and you can see how narrow that portion of OBX is and how close you are to the water. Very quiet in that part of the OBX as well, as compared to Nags Head, Kitty Hawk, etc.
RWS is also known as the Tri-Village area. You'd have to drive to Avon to find larger stores (Ace Hardware, Food Lion) and a lot of restaurants.

Spring & Summer Trip

We stay at a great campground Jellystone in Cosby TN. It is a small (about 70 spots) family owned and family friendly campground. It is clean as it can be and quite. Almost every spot on the stream, full hook ups with plenty of shade. Dave and Adam will welcome you as if you are a part of their family. All of what you will need, camp store, large game room, pool, hiking, hay rides, basketball court, horse shoes, corn toss, miniature golf, movies for the kids and most weekends entertainment. We have been going there for about 15 years and never get tired of it. About 12 miles from Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge and Dollywood. Climbworks zip line and mountain biking about four miles away that is absolutely mind blowing. I don't think you would be disappointed staying there.

I haven't camped in Myrtle Beach in over 30 years with my parents but I have reservations for ocean lakes from July 30 - Aug. 6. Can't wait!!!! I also have reservations to stay in a cabin in Gatlinburg in October. Thought we would scout out the campsites in that area before camping there.

Try RV Parky app for android or RVParkReviews. Both are full of good info. I would also check out Passport America. Good deals can be found there but look carefully.
Another suggestion is to go to/through northern GA. In the Helen/Lake Hiawasee area. It is on the north western corner of the state. Really pretty and there are a few lakefront CG's right on the lake
IMHO Camp Hatteras wold be a fine choice. I don't particularly like KOA's. I always feel squished in and cramped.

Keep in mind all the campgrounds along the ocean in the Myrtle Beach area are HUGE. All (pretty sure) have full hookups. As mentioned some sites have concrete pads but, most will be on sand or grass (poor quality grass though). Because they're so big, many of them have lots of amenities from pools (multiple), snack bars, adult bars, restaurants, playgrounds etc. But, I don't think open campfires are allowed in Myrtle Beach. I also think they all have easy access (walk) right out onto the beach.

But, plenty to do for the kids & adults.
