“Grassy, treed campground - walking distance to lovely beach”

Reviewed Apr 29, 2016

Overall Rating

Stayed here one October. We did not have reservations but there were a few spots open still. We were able to not have immediate neighbors yet still views of the ocean. We were adjacent to some brushy vegetation which helped with the privacy feel to one side of the camp. Since it was a drought year, the grassy lawn was struggling a bit, still good for tent camping. Otherwise there is no understory vegetation growth to provide privacy - just the large standing trees. The restrooms were newer, but the water was turned off (only toilet was usable). Water spigots still worked to fill up water containers. The best part of this spot (other than it was available and nice), is that is 0.7 miles walk to Sand Dollar Beach. This is normally a day use area with a fee and parking lot on the bluff, but you can walk to it easily from camp. Stairs take you down the cliffs to a crescent shaped beach. Sand shores and rocky shores both to explore. We stayed for the sunset and had the entire beach to ourselves. I don't recall my cell coverage, but it was probably spotty. It was a bit of a drive (or backtracking) to any restaurants so we were glad we had a dinner with us for that night.

“Great if you have dogs...”

Reviewed Apr 11, 2016

Overall Rating

Many beaches along the coast do not allow dogs but the beach across the street from this campground does. Easy walk over.

Campground is for smaller rigs only and has a plethora of children. Very noisy over the weekend. No Verizon service; did not use the toilet facilities. No threaded water, fill jugs only.
