Overall Rating

We love Refugio Beach. My Parents started taking me here back in the late 80's and here I am now almost 30 yrs later and sharing this same great state park with my kids.

The Park has changed a bit over the years. The state chopped down a lot of the old growth Eucalyptus tress (bummer) and a fair amount of the beach has eroded away over the past 30 yrs.

All the spots are level and clean and easy to back into. the bathrooms are cleaned daily and showers are HOT! The camp store has most everything but the hrs of operation can be spotty.

there is no place to dump or get fresh water on site, which is a bummer but overall the place still hasn't lost its charm. The only drag is the proximity the park is to the train tracks. I usually sleep like the dead, but those freight trains that come down at night stand on their breaks and the sound is brutal.
