Looking For Beachfront Campground Ideas

Hello everyone! We are wanting to get some trips planned for the year, and looking for some suggestions.

We would like to find a campground that is located on a beach for a summer vacation, keep in mind we live in KY. Probably wanting to be on Gulf Coast or possibly Atlantic Coast.

Also, any other great campgrounds around our area that people would highly suggest for smaller trips and etc would also be appreciated.

We bought our North Point 5th wheel late in September, and only got to use it a few times locally before we put it up for winter, but so far are loving it.

Any suggestions or help will be greatly appreciated!

Beach front campgrounds fill up real fast. Our state park reservation window opens six months in advance so for fourth of July week I had to be on the computer January 1 hoping to grab a beach front site on Lake Michigan which I got lucky and got one, within a few hours the whole campground was reserved for the week, and now most of that park is full for the whole summer.

We really First Landing State Park in Virginia Beach. Sites back on to the sand dunes and you're just a few yards away from the water.

We also really like Fort De Soto in Pinellas County just south of Tampa....heading there in just over for 4 weeks.

If you make it out to So Cal, Carlsbad state beach is pretty incredible! Right on the beach overlooking the Pacific! Sooooo nice!

We have visited “On the Beach RV” in Port Aransas and “Sand Piper RV” in Galveston several times and completely enjoy them both. The former is quieter and more laid back but Sand Piper has a great location if you want to be a tourist.
Both have easy beach access.

There are a couple RV places on Cape San Blas, Florida.

Rated one of the top beaches in the country and has a fairly remote feel to it.

I own a house on the Cape and there is a house lot converted to a single RV space a few lots over and a couple more along the cape I have seen.

Here's a picture from my place -- the one RV space is closer to the rocks.
There's been a good bit of erosion == but you get the idea of the beach quality. This was taken during spring break one year. We've lost much of the dune there -- but there is a seawall protecting this section of the beach.

If you have kid's Lakewood campground in Myrtle Beach is nice. It's on the beach w/ waterpark with slides and lazy river. It has several eating places on site and rental golf carts. It's rather busy in prime time but we go in the off season with grandkids. Ran by very nice family.

If you are looking for a coast to coast trip here is a place to stay in Oregon on the beach.


It has been a few years since we have been there, but it has never changed over the years we have visited.

We have never been farther east than Illinois. Maybe one day!! We do have a daughter in New York state. No one never knows where life will lead people with a RV.
