South Padre Island Beach has approximately 60 miles of primitive beach camping. This area can be accessed from Beach Access #5 and Beach Access #6 and you can camp anywhere north. During the on season access by vehicle is $12 to enter, regardless of the length of stay, though camping cannot exceed 14 days. Offseason is free (from autumn until spring break). During the off season north of access 6 is recommended 4x4 only. Fires, pets, and fishing are allowed, but keep in mind several miles of beach have a road on the other wide of the dunes so keep an eye on pets and children. There are also no amenities and it is recommended to be aware of tides and weather conditions as it can get quite windy on the beach.
