Sleeping on the beach

How safe is the camping area? I am a single female & am worried about sleeping alone in a tent.

Do you mean Hither Hills State Park? MY understanding is that the campground fills up months in advance. Do you have reservations?

Sleeping on the beach is illegal. If the police find you they'll issue a warning if you're lucky. I would not consider it a good idea.

No. Illegal and dangerous. get a hotel room. If you are a US citizen you will be arrested and have a criminal record. If you are from abroad you will be deported.

I do have reservations & there will be a campe/rv. I just thought I would enjoy the solitude of sleeping by myself in the tent & wasn’t sure how safe it is.

I have reserved a spot at the campground, just wondering about the safety of sleeping alone in my own tent instead of in the rv with others.

Elizabeth if you have a reserved space in a campground you will be fine. Your question was about sleeping on the beach, we assumed it was not a campground. Single women are in no more danger than single men if you are prepared and careful, just put your tent in a reserved safe spot.
