Is it possible to camp on the beach? Specifically, I'm hoping to do this during Jeep Week. Thanks!

Sorry, but you cannot camp on the beach. Overnight sleeping on the beach (or camping) is prohibited year round.

Castaways is a really nice campground in West OC and it's close to Assategue Island.

You can also camp at Treasure Beach and have full use of their showers and facilities.

Sorry, but no.  You are not permitted to sleep on the beach at all after 10 pm.  The reason is that the beach sweeping machines and the garbage collection machines run on the beach overnight and may not see someone asleep on the beach and the results would be tragic.  If you want to camp, you'll need to look at Assateague or other campgrounds in West Ocean City.

Derrick, no camping is allowed on Ocean City Beach at any time. 

There is campgrounds in the area that do allow camping. Please check them out below.

Assateague Island camping would be the closest thing to camping on the beach.
