Its illegal to camp ON the beach in most places. You will have to check the rules for where it is allowed. There are campsites down there. I know there is one close to Oregon Inlet. You can drive on the beach year round in parts and can drive most everywhere else up until April I think. You do have to have a permit now for the national sea shore.

Where are you looking to be in OBX? Are you looking to be "near" things like grocery stores and bars and stuff? North of (and near) Currituck National Wildlife Refuge is mostly sand roads and nearly uninhabited at this time of year (if you feel like winging it) . Basically all beaches should be open for walking and stuff, but not camping. Unless it's changed again, beach driving is not allowed anymore throughout most of the OBX, but I could be wrong...and that may have only been during certain months of the year or something.

Beach camping would be awesome though.

Depends on what part of the Banks you want to hit. There is a National Seashore Campground on Ocracoke which is pretty decent and right up against the beach. If you really want to rough it, you can head down to Cape Lookout National Seashore. You have to take a private ferry over to the island (approx. $50-$100 each way depending on # of axles), but you can camp on the beach. Should be good fishing there around late March to beginning of April. Anywhere along the Banks though, be wary of the mosquitoes, especially in the less developed areas. They can be vicious.

Good luck with your planning. It should be a nice trip!
