There is no camping or fires allowed on the beach.

GUESTS ARE REQUIRED TO LEAVE A CASH DEPOSIT OF $150 FOR SECURITY & GAS. Guests should return the boat with the same amount of gas as they received it (usually always full). If the boat is returned with a full tank, the cash deposit will be returned back to the guest. If the tank is not full, the cash deposit will be kept. No alcohol, narcotics, or illegal substances allowed on board. Any guest found under the influence of alcohol or substances forfeits the remainder of their reservation and deposit.
