I'm in the market for an RV campground on the beach that is dog-friendly. Thank you, Insiders!

Here is info on a couple of RV parks I recommend:

Castaways (888.733.9497 Ext. 0) is about 5 miles from OC off Route 611 in West OC. All sites have hook-ups (Water , electric, Wi-Fi, sewer and cable). They offer a complimentary shuttle bus to OC memorial Day - Labor Day. They allow leashed pets.

Frontier Town (800.228.5590) is another great option. It is about 6 miles form OC, also off Route 611 in West OC. They also offer sites with hook-ups,  shuttle bus service to OC, and allow pets. Checkout their camp guide here. Frontier Town has tons of amenities, including a great water park (free for registered campers).

You can also camp at Assateague National Seashore with your pet, but I do not believe they have hook-ups on any of their sites. This option is more spartan, and is about 14 miles from OC, but you are camping adjacent to the Assateague ocean beach.

If you are looking for a more permanent solution and want to purchase an RV site, checkout Bali Hi Campground in nearby Bishopville. It is about 4 miles from OC.

My favorite RV park is Treasure Beach - http://www.treasurebeachrvpark.com.  They have great amenities and a nice location in Fenwick Island.  Pets are welcome, but may not be left unattended. Pets are required to wear current rabies and identification tags.

To "camp on the beach" the place that comes to mind for me is Assateague. Here is the link to their Camping at Assateague page.

I have stayed at Castaways RV Resort before. They have a pool and beach on the bay. It is in West Ocean City but they provide a shuttle bus to Ocean City and Assateague Island. Plus they are pet friendly :) 

Have fun!

There is no camping in Ocean City.  You would have to go to Assateague or Fort Whaley.  Assateague has no hookups for campers, but do have fire rings and some have picnic tables.  I think Fort Whaley would be my choice, It's not near the beach, but it's not a long drive to the beach either. .  Here is their website.  http://campground.fortwhaley.com/
