A beautiful private beach in a unique setting (adjacent to the pier and bridge). I didn’t have time to visit the nearby wind caves or the hot spring, but all the more reason to come back! Bathrooms are clean and there's a snack shack for convenience. The campground draws a diverse crowd (rv, tent, surfers, families) and by 9pm the whole campground quiets down pretty quickly and despite being next to a train bridge, I did not hear the train while I was there. Slept with the camper window cracked open and fell asleep to the sound of the nearby waves. Quite nice. The campsites all bleed into one another with little to no division between sites. Tents are essentially out in a shared open space. Verizon reception was good with 15mb+ down.

Great little campground with a private beach, a pier (currently closed) and an Amtrak trestle bridge for the Coast Starlight route up and down the coast. Bathrooms with flush toilets and cold water sinks are kept clean. Hot showers $.25/2 minutes. No hookups that I know of. IT CAN BE VERY WINDY in this area so beware, especially if you're tent camping. Each site has a picnic tablet and a fire pit.
