I'll show you mine if you show me yours!
 
Specific GPS locations on the east coast where you can pull out onto the beach and spend the night?

Go west young man, go west!

North Carolina has some beaches on the outer Banks that allow vehicles on the beach. Some require a permit.

Personally I wouldn't drive my motor home on a beach.

We traveled down the east coast and the outer banks last fall, and although we didn't find any locations right on the beach, we found 2 that were very close to the water that we enjoyed very much.

You want GPS coordinates? OK, the place we loved in Kitty Hawk is at:

36.069386,-75.693955

You should be able to get a spot right across the road from the beach, and it's close enough that you can hear the surf at night and see gorgeous sunrises. We detailed our experiences at:

Betsy’s “ferryfull” adventures – Outer Banks, NC | The Lowe's RV adventures

There's another place down the coast at Cape Hatteras, NC that we mentioned in that post. It was a NPS campground which was closed when we arrived in November, but we would definitely like to go back as it's very near the water:

35.235612,-75.538838

We really enjoyed our trek down the east coast and hope to do it again soon. I hope you have a great trip!

I'm curious about why you and Mr. Sdlowe11 would not want to drive on a beach or be near the water?

Salt water would be my reason if you were asking me. It doesn't take long for rust corrosion to appear.

The link above will take you to NPS info. None of the NPS campgrounds are open now.

Yep, Clifftall nailed it. That and the sandblasting your coach will get.

Spent a week at Ocean Waves Campground a couple years back, wonderful place!
Rode my Harley everyday! sunshine and 80's everyday! Washed the Coach and Bike trailer when we returned home, Harley "appeared" to be clean? (No rain, sunshine riding) wiped it down while down there, put it away for the winter, next spring, chrome pitted, front aluminum forks ruined, pitted, mirrors ruined, had to replace......anything facing forward......green corrosion...........bummer! I failed my HOG! DID NOT WASH IT! salt is in the air! Wash everything when visiting.......or after visiting near the ocean!

My Wife loves the beaches, I guess I am blessed with a 25 year old rig.

My 1995 C spent it's first 15 years on the Gulf Coast of Florida, the owner had a waterfront house north of Tampa where he and it lived full time. It's spent the last few years in Canada, we drive it in winter (heavily salted roads) 4 to 6 times a year and heavens knows how many ocean front camping trips since.

There's not a speck of rust on it anywhere.

Myrtle Beach has 3 campgrounds where you can stay by the beach. We were at Pirateland in October and had a site next to the beach on a concrete pad. Don't know the coordinates.

John H thanks for the camp ground recommendations but I am looking for free spots!!
