It's hardened areas, but with sand blown over it.

Last summer I camped at the military campground which was right on the sand but not too close to the water. I don't have 4 wheel drive so it took a little more effort to get to the site. Of course I don't know how much of the effort was "lack of experience" related. I have a light weight TT.

If driving on sand with RV, good thing to do is bring your credit card for the tow out if needed. Would never do it in a HM for sure.

We have a great military campground on Camp Pendleton California called Del Mar Beach.

it would help if you posted what region of the country you're in or put it in your sig line.
the West Coast has very few places that allow this, with RV's.

Thanks for all the responses. Im in Florida, so either Gulf or Atlantic coast. Sounds like a campground on the other side of the dunes is the way to go

Padre Island National Seashore allows beach camping. No hook ups, but has nearby water and dump station. It is free!! we had a 24 foot Winnabago ERA and had no problem as we stayed on sand area that was damp/packed. Really great experience. There were larger units there and I did not see anyone get stuck. That same area has a paved area with hookups.
