Is the high tide going to the dunes or is there a lot of beach for camping overnight ?

Y’all gonna over advertise that place and wind up with 4000 short term rental houses, and wind up with year round crowds/over crowding and regret it, just like Port Aransas did, never and off season here now and it sucks.
