About South Beach Campground

Description

The South Beach Campground is very similar to North Beach Campground, but it’s south (obvi. ), and runs along the Gulf of Mexico from the end of Closed Beach to Mansfield Channel. 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!

Translation: fires are permitted in barbeque grills or a pit dug in the ground.

We ADORED this National Seashore.

A couple of friends and I tent camped here over Spring Break. Besides the weather being a little chilly and mostly overcast, we had such a good time.

The primitive camp sites along South Beach are completely free, you just drive down until you see a place to call home for the next few nights and set up camp.

One of my favorite things about this camp site/beach was that it never got crowded the whole time we were there. And even with the people who were there, it was very quiet.

If you are looking for a place to camp on the beach, this is seriously it.

(side note: showers in the visitor center are at subarctic freezing temperatures...)

Who knew Texas beaches could look like this! Came down from Fort Worth on a whim and fell in love with this place. Malaquite campground was full but no worries, south beach was exactly what I needed.
Easy to drive out and snag a spot even with a non 4WD vehicle ( I have a Nissan cube).
You have a gorgeous front row seat to the ocean no matter where you settle. It can get pretty windy so be sure to secure all your gear, and maybe leave your tent fly off to check out the crazy awesome view of the night sky while you fall asleep to the sound of the waves
