Following this because although I've lived here all my life, I couldn't think of a single campground with beach views. Will pull from this in the future.

Long Key State Park -- the back of your trailer is about 30 feet from the lapping waves. Almost impossible to get into in the winter, though.

For our yearly spring break, we spend 2 weeks on the beach camping in St. Augustine, FL at Bryn Mawr Ocean Resort, on the Atlantic coast. It is awesome. The beach goes on for miles and is great for jogging and walking. There are many places to kayak as well in bays, rivers, etc. Lots of history in the area too. A perfect way to leave our northern Vermont winter behind.

Not right ON the beach...but a short walk away...St. Joe Peninsula State Park. Great sites, and you have the Gulf beaches (that rival Grayton Beach) on one side, and St. Joe bay with its scallops on the other. A great part!
A little further east you have St. George Island State Park....although its a walk to the miles of undeveloped soft-sand beaches. And stay at the Carabelle sites if you like mosquitos (season dependent)...although beautiful Dog Island with miles of pristine beaches lies several miles offshore. You'll enjoy all of these. jon

Fort Desoto Park - near Tampa Bay. Vanessa and I stayed here over Christmas. Many of the sites are waterfront, some sandy some have breakwalls with a canal view. Beautiful beaches part of the park a short drive away.

Florida campground on beach

We have been at the red coconut @ fort myers beach 4 years now late nov thru dec; lovely beach, dogs allowed. Campground is crowded & expensive & internet not always available which is a downside for canadian travellers. We do enjoy the beach there. Full hookups but you do pay for the services.

Fascinating. Many choices, but have to plan so far in advance.

There is a state park in St Augustine that is really nice. Anastasia Park. No sewer but water and electric with dump station on the way out. It sits behind the dunes so you have the best of both worlds. Woods and ocean. If you haven't been to St augustine, it's a great place to visit. Lots to do. I agree with Panama Red if your wish is to be right on the beach.
Jetty park in Cape Canaveral is right on the beach also. You can watch the cruise ships come and go from your Zip Dee chair.

A few more:


Fort Clinch Sate Park north of Jacksonville. Some sites just behind the dune lines others a short drive away. Nice park several AS there when we camped there Last year. Great fishing pier

Anastasia SP St Augustine No waterfront short drive inside the park to beach also Kayaking and canoeing inside the park. Nice park have camped there.

Jetty Park Port Canaveral. No ocean front but great walking access to the beach. Inside the port on the inlet. Watch the ships cruise in and out, Warning must like ships horns in the AM if the weather is foggy. Ask me how I know

Long Point Brevard County park Sabastian Inlet . Near the beach on water riverside. Warning we looked here on a weekend and it looked like an anything goes park complete with inflatable waterslides and park as many cars and boat trailers as you can fit on your site or any where near by We passed on this one.

Sebastian Inlet State Park (don't confuse with Sebastian river SP). Not on the ocean but within walking distance. on the inlet nice views. river access for boating.

If you are retired or active duty military:

Mayport Naval Station and Key West Naval Station

Hey Beach Bum. Have you been to outdoor resorts in Melbourne? It sits in between the river and the ocean. Very nice. 3 pools, one on ocean, one on river other in the middle. Has boat ramp for river. Beach is very private. Not full of giant hotels. All paved sites and nicely landscaped.

Have not stayed there. But know the Melbourne Beach to Sebastian Inlet area well. Nice area a lot less crowded than most areas on the Atlantic coast of FL. We try to stay in state or federal parks when they are available.

That's Beverly Beach... Awesome spot! I also can give a hearty second to Anastasia, Ft Clinch, St Joe and one of my new favorites, Topsail Hill Preserve. All great state parks, and quite a bit cheaper than Beverly, but not RIGHT on the water like this...

-Red, planning his next visit...

Hey Becky, we'll be right down the beach from you for the entire month of November 2015. We'll drop by and say hi.
