Save that cash and buy your honey a bouquet of flowers, this camping area is free of charge! The North Beach Campground runs along the northernmost part of the National Seashore, along the Gulf of Mexico. All camping in this area is primitive, and open to RV and tent camping. There are no marked sites, so just close your eyes and pick a spot! If you’re looking for facilities, head over to the Malaquite Campground. Last but not least, unless there is a fire ban in effect, go wild and light ‘em up! Translation: fires are permitted in barbeque grills or a pit dug in the ground.

You should go in the summer when they are releasing the baby turtles.
