“Expensive Camping, Gorgeous Beach”

Reviewed Mar 12, 2018

Overall Rating

While there's nothing wrong with this campground, I had to deduct a star because $65 a night with no ocean view is kind of ridiculous. Yeah, I know it has full hook-ups but I am not sure we could ever use that much power/water/sewer to make it worth the price. On the plus side, the beach here is gorgeous! The soft sand stretches for mi... more

“Beach camping that’s not a parking lot.”

Reviewed Mar 06, 2018

Overall Rating

Most of the beach camping in San Diego and orange counties is a glorified parking lot. SCSB is a nice big park up on the bluff. The beach is a steep walk away. The park is great to just cruise around on a bike. Our daughter loved playing with kids that were camped near us. It’s a family vibe. We stayed up next to our fire past the quie... more

“Full hookups, great ocean views ”

Reviewed Dec 22, 2017

Overall Rating

This is one of the best! None of the sites are oceanfront as the campground is up on a cliff, but it’s just a short walk to watch some amazing sunsets! There’s also a dog friendly hiking path that leads down to Calafia Beach where you can hop on the pedestrian/bike path to the pier (no dogs allowed on the beach though). The full hookup... more

“Fantastic views and spacious sites!”

Reviewed Jan 31, 2017

Overall Rating

This campground is in a great location on a bluff. It's a short, steep walk to the excellent San Clemente State Beach. Walk one way and you can get to the pier in downtown San Clemente, and the other way is Richard Nixon's old home. There are dry and hookup sites here. The hookups are a little closely packed but the sites in the lo... more

“Nicest place to camp in the area - Closest to surf”

Reviewed May 13, 2015

Overall Rating

$25.00 Off-Season - $35.00 Summer Months ($50.00 for full hook-ups) Best place to stay for South OC Surf. Clean Spots, Coin operated showers and a great beach break right out in front of the campsites. Surf: Short walk to T-street and short drive to Lowers. Note: The receipt that you get for paying for your site gets you into... more
