Just a half-mile north of the visitor’s center, Malaquite Campground features 48 semi-primitive sites. Camp at your site, or pick out a sweet spot on the beach! The campground provides flush toilets, cold-water showers (who needs coffee in the morning when you have a cold shower?), and picnic tables for each site. Take note: the twenty cash transfer apps on your phone won’t work here. There is an $8/night fee in addition to the park entrance fee, which can only be paid in the correct amount of cash or with a check! If you just thought, “what’s a check” then you may be too hip to camp. JK, just bring cash.

We visited here on 4/27/17 (before the hurricane)

There is free beach camping south of the established campground (After you pay the park fee, that is). Much less crowded and you have access to the whole beach. Stop in the visitor center to get the park pass and instructions on how to get there. The established campgrounds were quite packed when we visited.

We very much enjoyed the beach here an the sunrise from this side of the island can't be missed. Salt and sand everywhere.
