Beaches to Ride/camp

Yo, I was wondering if there are any beaches in NJ that allow primitive camping and that you are allowed to ride jeep on. Are there any places that allow both or just riding on the beach? I appreciate all the info, thanks.

that sounds awesome, I'm totally in! But (and maybe I scrolled to fast), I didn't see any place saying you could camp?
driving along in perfectly flat sand... well... I've been to the pine barrens lol.

Although I'd be totally up for a weekend trip someplace I can camp on the beach...

I have a pass for island beach. Doesn't mention camping but I've seen campers on the beach. You have to be fishing if your driving in and if your fishing you can stay all night. Just not sure if you can set up an actual tent

Have you ever camped there? I read that you can't have fires either but I've seen Bon fires on the beach too.
We should get a bunch of rigs together n head down there. Bar bq n do some fishing. Get a nice setup with a bunch of people. Maybe on the fall when the water cools off and the fish come back

think you can have fires at island beach but it has to be a certain amount of feet from the dunes.

The park is closed from midnight to 4 AM, but beach buggy permit tees will be permitted to stay in the park 24 hours per day providing that during this period they actively fish or park in a designated location.

The total number of 72-hour permits will be limited to 50 at any one time and may not be renewed for more than one consecutive 72-hour period. $50 yearly fee for statewide state park pass is good for unlimited walk-on.
Permit obtained from: Gatehouse.
Beach access points: Areas of buggy operation include the area from Gilliken's south to the inlet.
