Our first summer road trip is going to start on the Jersey Shore. Although I grew up on the Northern Shore, I've never explored the Southern end much. I'm looking for a few good campgrounds that are within biking distance of beach areas. We're concentrating on Atlantic City south to Cape May.

And in case anyone is raising an eyebrow in skepticism -- roadtrippers know you can't judge a state until you go. The Jersey Shore is one of the most wonderful stretches of beach in the country -- everything from honky-tonk boardwalk life to undisturbed nature to Victorian elegance-- so no Jersey jokes for this Jersey girl, please!)
