I'm trying to help plan a trip for April 16 - 29 from Cocoa Beach, Florida to Nags Head, North Carolina. (These dates cover only the Cocoa Beach to Nags Heads part of this trip. It doesn't include the time needed to get from home to Cocoa or Nags Head back home.)
This is largely a surfing trip for 2 long-time surfers in their mid-60s and their non-surfing wives. (Me, DH & 2 good friends.) But we'll also be doing other things like "touring" Charleston, maybe some kayaking, biking, etc.
We all like scenic routes. We'll be driving a 31 footer w/a 4 door Wrangler in tow. They'll be in a Class B, no tow.
Because surfing is a major part of this trip, we have to stay as flexible as possible. The surf report comes out a week ahead and will tell them where the surf is going to be. That will influence where we go when and for how long. To make planning even more interesting, Easter weekend falls right in the middle of this. We may have to go ahead and pick a place, now, to be for those 3 days if we don't want to run the risk of ending up at Wal-Mart. (We may not need a lot to make us happy but "camping" at Wally World for 3 nights just would be miserable and isn't going to happen. Not to mention being bad for the image/reputation of RVers in general.
Any recommendations you have for places to stay - we prefer State & County Parks as we don't need a lot of "extras" - and things to see or do would be greatly appreciated. Also places to eat. We'll be out and about during the day and don't want to miss trying great local foods.
I've searched here and found some places already, like James Island County Park and Edisto Beach State Park. Would love to hear about other places along those lines. Private is okay as long as they aren't huge resort-type places.
Almost forgot - we'll head back home (Pensacola, Florida area) from Nags Head. We would like to skirt north of Atlanta (I'd really like to go to Cloudland Canyon SP in NW Georgia) then eventually pickup I 65 South. Any other spots to stop along the way home would be a bonus.
