The adventure begins before you even get to your campground! This all-exclusive primitive paradise is accessible only through the 4WD area of South Beach and by boating down the Laguna Madre. To find the campground, drive to the 15-mile marker and backtrack approximately 100 yards. Look for a notch in the foredune ridge, turn right, and you’re there. Be aware that the road through the dunes can be filled with exceptionally soft and deep sand, and that even the most B.A. adventure mobile can become stuck (call 361.949.8068 for driving conditions). And heck, once you put in all of that work to find Yarborough Pass Campground, the fee’s on them. Your stay is free!
