Beach campin' would be "THE BOMB" I hope to get the chance someday. I have been to Port A in Texas for a day, It was awesome. We seen a few tents and some vans.

I hate to give away a local secret but Indian Pass Campground is a very nice place to spend some beach time. Indian Pass Campground - Indian Pass, FL - World Class Fishing, Campgrounds & Cabins

I've only actually camped "on" the beach with a tent, but in the last month I've camped at state parks that were "next to" the beach. St George Island in FL, Goose island state park in TX, and Galveston Island state park in TX.
Goose Island we actually had the water right out the back window of our Scamp, but there's a seawall there so it's not really "beach". We liked Goose Island. Galveston Island state park had some sites destroyed by hurricane Ike, so the closest sites are just behind the sand dunes, and have electric and water, plus a shelter with table. Another nice campground.
As we departed Galveston and went through the Bolivar peninsula in TX, it appears that there are several areas that you can just pull onto the sand and camp, so you might check into that.
We would have spent a night or two on Padre Island National seashore, they have sites on the beach there and also at Mustang Island state park, but thunderstorm predictions hastened our side trip to San Antonio instead.

It's not really camping but we use our trailer as an extra bedroom when extra family comes to the cottage on a Lake Erie beach. Last summer the wind came up during the night and burried the wheels in a foot of sand. We had to winch and drag it out of a huge drift to get it back to the driveway.

James, that looks pretty good for beach front camping! You would have a constant 'campground full' sign out if you let people camp on your lake lot!

We found some beautiful, varied, lake beach campgrounds in Ontario. Lake Superior was amazing, watching the full moon drop blood red into the lake water, and everyone around us joined us in applause. Tiny Rossport, by Rainbow Falls, offered a rock and sand shore vista to overwhelm anyone. Sturgeon Bay, Pancake Bay, Sleeping Giant and Neys offered up different, still awe-inspiring views. All so memorable.
Edit to add: Thanks to our wonderful neighbors to the north! We can't wait for another opportunity to explore more of the Canadian parks.

There is Dune Camping on the Outer Banks of North Carolina.. Not right on the Beach, but walking distance, & you can see the ocean from alot of the sites.. There are private & Federal campgrounds along the Islands.. There are free dump site here also.. The sand is soft here & it takes 4 wheel drive to go on the beach, so I don't think you would want to try to drag a camper out there, you can however drive on our beaches to fish & enjoy the day...
