Overall Rating

Nice place to camp not far from Santa Barbara and the Pacific Ocean. Great views and not far from Solvang and Wine Country. Park access is on a winding rather steep at times road, but doable for RV's.

The National Forest campground like many others is ran by a concessionaire. Clean well manicured sites with dirt and grass. Paved interior road needs a lot of repair work. The Host at this small campground was very friendly.

The normal nightly camping fee is pretty high at $30, although I paid $15 with the America the Beautiful pass. There are clean flush toilets, trash service and water is available, but the campsites are barebones. While I may have given this campground a higher rating, $30 dollars is way too high for the facilities (but it is California). Also they don't have a RV Dump and you will have to travel 10 minutes to the State Park, pay a day use fee of $10 to use their less than desirable Dump.
