    East coast beachside campsites

    Does anyone have any recommendations for a beach side campground with surf good for beginner surfers? (myself and my kids)
    Many Thanks,
    Tom.

    Assateague island, MD has beachside camping and usually user-friendly surf.

    Anywhere along the East coast. Thanks- I'll check it out.
    We are in KY so we are looking at a 10 hr drive minimum anyway you look at it. I have this recurring notion of me and the family taking a surfing/camping vacation.

    You can't go wrong with the outer banks either, there are several beachside campgrounds down toward the cape.

    Agree. But, check the Assateague and Cape Hatteras National Seashore sites on-line for campsite availability (sites are bought up way in advance during peak season) and the NS sites are not open year round. There are also some decent private campgrounds in the Lighthouse area (Buxton and Frisco) and up north in Rodanthe (these tend to be more RV-oriented).

    Check out long point/great island for good family cabins n the beach.

    Or go to shackleford banks for no amenity camping. Access is ferry only for both.

    for beginners, I'd say Fort Story in VB. It's right behind Cape Henry Lighthouse.
