While it is not offically allowed, many come here to sun bathe in the buff. A 4x4 may be required. There isn't a charge for parking/camping on the beach here. It's just an "abandoned" stretch of beach. No facilities.

    This is an interesting beach. For the most part it's abandoned but not forgotten. It's not maintained do beach conditions change with each new storm. Sometimes you can get in with any cars. Other times even risky with a 4x4. The beach can be trashy in places and seaweed from high tide can be thick. If you are a perv, don't get too excited. Most of the people on this beach are older, larger and at times creepier. It's not a real nude beach, and if the sheriff or law enforcement catches total nude, they can fine. Girls are welcome to go topless with no issues. The nudist tend to crowd into areas and watch for the law with binoculars. Gays tend to mass further down the beach, but quite ironically is family oriented if you don't mind semi nude women or an occasional nude people moving about. There is a nice sandy road behind the beach burmes (sand piles ). Get caught using this road and you could be fined or charged with trespassing. That road belongs to the oil company. Take shovels and ropes if you do
    drive onto the beach. Many will help you if you get stuck and are polite. Camp between the burme openings, and place your tent or campsite behind your car. Many drunks are known the be out there after dark, and occasionally one gets in their vehicle. Most people are exceptionally friendly and not weird, but you will get the one creepy perv who comes with cameras and creepy stares. Just stare back and he will leave. Have a good time there.

      Lol! Good description of me and my hubby! Seriously, exciting place.... in so many ways! Fun! I'm not even a nudist! Husband is/was/and loves to be! I just respect, don't stare and collect shells - great shells! Apparently went at extremely good time though! Please watch the tides! Would recommend for the adventurist - for SURE! Remember FUN! EXCITING and BREEZY! :-)

Our community provides the best free camping information available. Free campgrounds can be hard to find. makes it easy. We give you a simple, map based search engine to find free and cheap camping areas. Community reviews and ratings provide you with up to date information and help you select the best camp site for your next camping trip.

This is a platform for sharing campgrounds and camp sites you have discovered. We are community driven, and while we will be adding many free camping spots, we hope that you will add some of your favorite camping places as well. By sharing camping information freely, we can all spend less time researching campgrounds, spend less money, and more time camping. If everyone contributes a few campsites, we'll all have more places to go camping.

Please come back and let us know what you find! User reviews help other campers decide on their next camping destination. The more information you have, the more informed your decisions.

Whether you enjoy tent camping, car camping or RV camping, our goal is to help you find the best places to go camping. We believe that free camping areas are often the most beautiful and peaceful camp sites. Our focus is on public lands. You own these lands and you are entitled to use them. We especially like camping on Forest Service land, BLM (Bureau of Land Management) areas, WMA's (Wildlife Management Areas) and county or city parks. We hope you enjoy the same style of camping.

We are not actively seeking Wal-Marts, truckstops or other parking lots and will not be adding very many of these. There are enough Wal-Mart and truck stop directories out there already. However, if a member of the community finds one of these locations to be useful for overnight RV parking and creates an entry, we may approve the listing.
