For those of us that have an all wheel drive mid size suv. Where would be the best place to set up for beach play for kids? We come out several times every year but recently traded in our truck so no 4×4 this year...

Has the entrance to the public beach access been plowed so you can actually get your car on the beach? The last few times we have tried (we do not have four wheel drive) the sand was too deep to even get our car on the beach thru the public entrance.
