Description: Tucked in the dunes with a view of the Gulf of Mexico and just half of a mile north of the visitor center, Malaquite Campground features 48 semi-primitive designated sites. Tent campers are welcome to set up camp on the beach or at the campsite. Each site has a maximum capacity of two tents, two vehicles, and eight people. Camping is accommodated on a first-come, first-served basis. No reservations are accepted.
Amenities: This campground provides flush toilets, cold-water rinse showers, and paved parking. Each site has a picnic table. Sites on the Gulf side also have shade structures and grills. There are no hook-ups available, but there is a gray/black water dump station and potable water filling station off of the entry road to the campground. No food, firewood, or fishing licenses are sold in the park, and the park does not have a gas station. The nearest amenities from the park entrance station are about 12 miles away, so please come prepared. The park also does not have a post office or sell stamps, and cannot mail items for visitors. Ice is available for purchase between 9:00 a.m and 5 p.m. at the Malaquite Visitor Center.
