RV Campgrounds on the Ocean and Gulf of Mexico

Spread the love


Chuck and I decided we want to live on the Ocean or the Gulf of Mexico as much as possible.


The results are in!!! I asked a Facebook Fulltime RVing group for a few suggestions. Well, it turns out the post was a hit and everyone wanting the list of RV Campgrounds on the Ocean and Gulf of Mexico. It was really fun putting the list together. I wanted to share it with everyone.


Friendly Reminder: Before booking any campgrounds, be sure to do your own research.
Have fun on the Beach!

Notes from Facebook – “Homer isn’t exactly the kind you will spend the day laying on the beach though, high temps usually in the 60’s”


Flying Flags Avila
6450 Babe Ln
Avila Beach CA 93424 USA
(805) 888-0158
Notes from Facebook – “Every site has an unbelievable view. The park is on a hill. You walk down the hill (through the rv park), cross the road and there is the beach. we have learned after that trip that some sites are better view with less rvs right below you. You. An ask them for recommendations. The staff is awesome.
We take our e-bikes but you certainly don’t need them. You can walk out on the pier and have the best fish and chips. Breakfast at Fat Cats.
The negatives about the spot are: Not a lot for kids to do. Perfect for adults wanting a view and relax. They have entertainment on the weekends. They also have minimum night stays. Summer is 7nights. However, it’s so nice. Quiet, not a lot of turnaround”

Beach Rose RV Park
147 Beach Rd,
Salisbury MA 01952 USA
Notes from Facebook –  “It’s super tiny, only 1 pull thru. But, it’s dog friendly, with two fenced off leash areas within feet of your site. The beach is a mile away, but it’s a walk thru protected marshes. And the beach is worth the walk. Owner/manager Melissa, is amazing! Laundry Express on Main Street (we have a washer/dryer but sometimes like to spoil ourselves) is brand new, super clean, and efficient. Staff is especially friendly. Our experience was probably enhanced because we’re off season, I suspect the peak summer months might be chaos, but I highly recommend stopping by if you’re on the North East Atlantic coast.”

Be sure to get your camping pass in town I believe the grocery store sells them. Plenty of space for big rigs. The police do ticket if you don’t have a pass so be sure to get one.”
