The park has two developed campgrounds--one on the Gulf-side of the island and the other on the Laguna-side--with varying amenities. Primitive beach camping is available on North and South Beaches and Yarborough Pass allows 4-wheel drive access to a primitive camping area on the Laguna-side of the island.
