  • One of the only places in the Continental United States where you can drive into the beach, and camp! Absolutely incredible and immense fun.

If you venture into the dunes, air down your toes and be ready to self extract. Heavy vehicles are a bit of a struggle on some of the hills.
  • My brother got stuck in his scion. If you're taking a car, drive faster so you don't sink into the dirt! But overall, it was sooo much fun!!! Oh! And wear sunblock!!!
