Default Can you camp on San luis pass

We are trying to do a quick fishing trip and thinking about pitching a tent.

Bring some off! I'm not 100% but don't see why it would be a problem.

There used to be a campground and marina there but I think it got wiped out during Ike. You may still be able to camp there.

I see people camping all the time. Be careful with the currents if you wade out into the cut.

Which side of the pass? Each side is a different county. On the Galveston side camping is not technically allowed but it is not enforced. I see people camping on the beach at the pass with travel trailers for a week at a time.

Hey man. It's none of my business, but if I were you I would camp some place else. I believe there is an actual camp ground on the beach side if you are coming from Galveston headed to Jamaica Beach. San Luis Pass is way to dangerous. Especially if you have kids. Just my .02. Have fun and be careful whatever you decide!!!!

We always fish the pass but I stay at the rv park. I would rather just stay on the beach and leave the stingrays and all out over night. It will be exciting to get woke up to a screaming run. I wear my pfd when I kayak and I don't wade any deeper than my knees.

Just curious, is it very dangerous out there? Several
Have said not to wade or not go past your knees? Is it because of bad currents?

you can tent camp on the Brazoria county side on the beach. The rv park is still there, but they require an RV. Don't wade without a PFD. Two people have died out there this summer.

Yes, people panic, try and fight it, and drown. It's no different than a river. You will drown trying to fight a river current, go with the flow and you will be fine. In Florida I have jumped into some gnarly rip currents, on purpose. I have had one suck me under a time or to but they spit you out just as quick.

San Louis is fine, as long as it's not a holiday. If you pitch a tent on the 4th, and the cops come up and tell you to leave, don't ask why . You'll be put in cuffs and treated like a criminal while they make your girl disassemble camp by herself. All 5' of her. Ask me how I know.

DO NOT WADE FISH THERE. This is my new stance it will take your life or one you love.

There are other places to camp and fish.

San Luis Pass can be very dangerous in more ways than one. The channels and currents make wade fishing very risky, especially for the inexperienced. Also I highly advise you take protection for you and your family in the form of a firearm of some sort.

I'm not, didn't ask your opinion either , not do I give a **** whether you give a ****. It simply applied to this post, and his question.
