Question about Bolivar Flats Beach Dispersed Camping

camper-730802 asked on 12/24/2022

Is there a difference between the “permit” beach and the free beach? I’m seeing two different listings here but it looks all the same? Sounds like if you have the permit you’re covered?

At the end of Rettilon road, if you go to the left it’s free, go right you need a $10 permit for the year. Not prorated. I just spent a month on the permit side and I couldn’t see much difference in the surroundings. Although it was off season. I don’t know about the busy season. There are portapottys at the entrance of the beach. They say there’s not but I just left there 3 weeks ago and they do have them. Enjoy!

If you have the permit - you’re good anywhere on the beach. And when we camped there, they did indeed drive around and check vehicles for the sticker/permit.
