“Best Beach Camping to Date”

Reviewed Jan 24, 2018

I was lucky enough to book a beach front site for the weekend. I've done about 20 days of next to water camping (lake, river, ocean) in the last year alone and this has been our favorite. Previous water sites: Seacliff SB, Yosemite NP right on Merced River, lakeside sites at Millerton SRA, Carpinteria SB. January weather was amazin... more

We have really enjoyed our stay at Doheny. We stayed in campsites 4, 60, 52 Getting a reservation was challenging but not impossible. I find that people make reservations 6 months out and then end up canceling a few days before their arrival date or a no-show. After our arrival we learned that there is a daily 'lottery' for camp ... more

“Close to the beach and Laguna Beach but also close to the Highway and Train”

Reviewed Jan 04, 2018

Overall Rating

If you are on a roadtrip between San Diego and Los Angeles this might be a good Campspot to spend a night. We arrived there in the afternoon and went to see Laguna Beach (20min North) which was nice. The spot itself is comfortable with a firepit and picknick table. The table though was very dirty. Walk to the beach is just a few feet. ... more

Mixed thoughts here. No power means GENERATORS 😩 loud obnoxious and used by some clueless people. It’s pot luck. Got off lightly as not next to us but could be a true nightmare. The beach front sites are AMAZING!! We’re at the back and sure can hear the trains and PCH but not that bad. Everything very clean and tidy. Expect to meet all... more

“Steps from the beach, but a little run down”

Reviewed May 17, 2017

Overall Rating

We really enjoyed our stay here because of it's proximity to the beach. We were steps away, but they even have some spots that back right up to the beach. Many of California's state beaches require reservations about 7 months in advance in order to get a spot on the weekends. Since we are fine staying during weekdays, we were able to g... more

“Right on the beach! ”

Reviewed Jan 31, 2017

Overall Rating

The location of this campground is hard to beat. It's right on the beach and walking distance to Dana Point and its harbor. If I was just coming for a weekend, or with a group of friends I would stump up the extra cash for the sites that are directly on the beach. We were staying longer so decided to save a little by staying in one o... more

“So close to the BEACH!”

Reviewed Oct 17, 2016

Overall Rating

Easy to find and park. Beach was not as pretty as some, but was good overall. Agree that paying extra for beach front might be a little steep, however, it would lessen the number of campsite surrounding you, so that's a plus. These sites are small and it feels a little crowded and rowdy. No hookups. Pros: • So close to the water... more

$60 for beach front sites, however due to the giant sand berm (unless you are in a Class A and able to see over it) We would recommend saving your money and going with the $35 site 1 row back. We walked our beach chairs across the street and were easily able to enjoy the beach. Note there are no hookups here, you are boondocking in a... more
