Myrtle Beach –excellent!Hart State Park, also or Tugalo State Park. Tybee Island in Savannah has a campground,
but of course, it's at the edge of the town so you have drive on in to the town to get to the decent beach area.sandy creek park?
it has a beachThere’s a park on the Florida Panhandle that offers wilderness camping and regular camping.
It’s on anisland (I think) so there would really only be campers and not many tourists. However,it’s only 3 miles E of Panama City so you could get some touristy stuff in if youwanted. We were going to go in 2006 but couldn’t. http://www.floridastateparks.org/standrews/default.cfmThis is the one we were looking at, but this site in general (esp. under mapsand directions) will show you all the parks in Florida . Fort Yargo
State Park in Winder,Ga. has nice camping spots (water & Elect but no sewer) and has a lake beach...so
close you can ride over and check it out first...)My husband went to Watson Mill last year w/the kids while
I babysat granny :) They had a blast. I didn't realize it was back there, but it was shady, quite and my 4 yr old could ride her bike. It only has the river to walk in though.Another place would be Lake Russell. It's about 45 min. away towards Elberton.
They have a beach that was pretty nice last year when I went.We used to go to Hart State Park a good bit,
I've got the perfect spot and it is near the beach.
Edisto Beach , S.C. It's a state park with campsites on the beach and on the bay (mosq), and has cabins to rent. Go to SC State Parks. We have gone there for 25 yrs, and it is our favorite place. Between Charleston and Hilton
Lake Russell State Park – in Elberton
Several Hartwell Lake campgrounds have beach areas
It's not a beach but Stone Mountain has nice camping area for families.
