Silver Strand State Beach Campground is an RV/Trailer campground only, which means all you tent campers are going to have to just sleep on the beach if you want to stay overnight (although we aren’t quite sure if that is legal…). There are 120 sites at the campground and visitors must reserve sites beforehand, and all sites have water and electrical hookups for your camping pleasure. Ramadas, bbq pits, tables, and fire rings are all available for public usage, as RV’s are parked together lining the beachside.
