Assateague Island State Park
There are oceanfront campsites all over the coast, but Assateague Island has something most don’t: wild horses roaming freely through the campground, even through campsites! The camp is situated on the Atlantic, so you can get plenty of beach time.

Take in rustic, slow-paced Maine at Hermit Island Campground. While most sites are made for tents, there are a few cabins and RV and camper sites. Rent canoes or kayaks to take full advantage of its waterfront location.
John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park
Located in Key Largo, John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park is the ideal launching point for water activities: scuba diving, snorkeling, or a tour on a glass-bottom boat. From underwater or above, explore the live coral reef and its marine life.
Massey’s Landing RV Resort & Campground
Glamping? RV? Cottages? You’ll have plenty of options at Massey’s Landing! This campsite, located right in the heart of Delaware’s stunning beaches, offers upscale amenities. From a private beach to a swim-up pool bar, this definitely isn’t “roughing it!”
Myrtle Beach State Park
Myrtle Beach, SC
The welcoming waters of Myrtle Beach are a dream getaway, and this state park is the perfect place to set up camp. Close enough to entertainment and dining options, and just far enough to find peace whenever you want.
Skidaway Island State Park
Southern charm abounds in Skidaway Island State Park, a natural beauty, with live oaks, Spanish moss, and plenty of local wildlife. If you want to explore, Skidaway Island is 30 minutes from Savannah and an hour from Tybee Island’s beaches.
Virginia Beach KOA Holiday
Virginia Beach, VA
Deluxe cabins, traditional tent camping, and endless recreation opportunities: Virginia Beach KOA Holiday has them all. Virginia Beach is just minutes away. But if you’d rather stay at the campground, you have two pools, bike rentals, outdoor games, and more.
Watch Hill Family Campground
Fire Island, NY
You’ll have to commute to Watch Hill Family Campground, accessible only by ferry or private boat. Choose from traditional camping or safari-tent glamping. But if you need a break from the Great Outdoors, there are restaurants and entertainment venues nearby.
