NOT A BAN – A BETTER PLAN 

If you’re going to the Long Beach Peninsula to celebrate the 4th of July, remember to have reservations at campgrounds or hotels. Overnight camping is not allowed on the beach. Drive safely on the beach and watch out for the tide – high tide at night is around 10 o’clock. And pick up all your garbage - pack it in, pack it out!
