RV on the beach

Has anyone taken their RV on the beach? Is it allowed, and has anyone had issues such as getting stuck in the sand?

Lots more info required...

I know nothing about beach camping, but saw your query. Neither your question, your signature, nor your profile provides a hint of what part of the world you are in, what type of RV you are talking about, etc. Short of writing a treatise titled "Fresh and Salt Water Beach Camping around the World" (assuming you are in this world), people won't be able to answer that question. Care to add a few details?

I know Pismo SB allows camping on their beach but it requires a 4 wheel TV to make it worth going into the beach You would have let some air out in the tires to drive better on the sand. The shops outside the beach will pump it up when you leave, $1 per tire tho.

I checked it out with my 2wheel drive Silverado but didn't go too far, you can easily get stuck.

X2 - there have been some posted here in the past - both on the beach and in the water.

Probably best to settle for campgrounds that just have a big sand dune between you and the beach. Ocean Lakes and Myrtle Beach Travel Park come to mind. There are lots of others like that.

I saw an RV campground last time I went to Myrtle beach. Looked very appealing. It was beach front, In line with all the hotels and right in the midst. I think that would be a lot of fun.

There are several like that in the Myrtle Beach area. We go in the winter and enjoy camping near the beach and walking over the dunes (via wooden stairways) and right onto the beach.
