I've been camping on Carolina Beach where you can drive a big car onto the beach and park up. It was very exciting, I felt like I was in the beginning of the Karate kid (luckily a bunch of bullies didn't show up and break our stereo). Don;t think there's any camping allowed on Wrightsville.

I've had friends that have camped on the beach at Carolina Beach. Check out Freeman Park (also called "the North end"). Link is below:


Here's additional information about camping in the area:


Have fun!
