Where to drive on the beach

The gf and I are taking some east coast road trips and want to find a few places where offroading and maybe camping on the beach is legal. I know of a few places: Outerbanks, NC; Island Beach State Park NJ, etc but I'm wondering if there are more places out there on the East coast... Preferably where there's not a lot of red tape and permits to acquire. I know for OBX you can just pull off onto the beach almost anywhere. I'm not finding any good resources out there for this sort of thing so I thought this would be a good place to start a thread and document all the places. Thanks all!

Try to give as much info as possible:

directions:
regulations:

I don't know about the East Coast, but in California Pismo (Oceano Dunes SVRA) in San Luis Obispo is the only beach you can drive on.

Daytona Beach, FL. Can't camp and it closes at dusk. Plus I think its like $5/day or you can buy a yearly pass for like $25. Huguenot Memorial Park in Jacksonville, FL offers beach camping and driving, plus it is one of the best places for kite surfing on the east coast. Of course neither of these places is really "off-roading" just beach driving.

Almost forgot, there is some more places in Virginia and Maryland but I don't believe you can camp on those beaches either b/c they are national or state parks.

Pretty much if you want camping and off-roading don't go to the beach.

you cant camp on the beach in NC along the OBs. I looked into this a while ago. You do need 4wd to access most of the beaches though. There are some really cool spots and its easy to get away from everyone if you want. There is camping right along the beaches though, but you do have to pay.

At Carolina Beach, NC just south of Wilmington, NC you can drive out on the beach and camp as well. Its called Freeman Park and you can get a day pass or a season permit from a lot of places down there. Just south of that you can do the same at Fort Fisher still I believe.
