Vacationing at beach camping parks has become a popular trend. While there are still those who prefer to stake their tents on a forest floor, parking an RV, or spreading a sleeping bag on the sand and sitting out beneath the stars, while listening to the gentle roar of the ocean appeals to many. Though this is a popular trend, this certainly isn't something new. There are beach parks all over the country, and the world for that matter. Read on for a sampling of our favorites.
