When you think of camping in Texas, do you imagine taking long walks on the beach, and waking up to the sun beaming over the Gulf of Mexico in the morning? If not, then it’s time to reset your expectations--and stay at this primitive campground on the beach! You know the drill with primitive campgrounds (no amenities), but the East Beach Primitive Campground isn’t too far from hiking, day-use picnicking, oodles of parking, and of course, the water!
