“Near a beach. Reserve site 25 if you can, apparently that’s the hot spot with a water view. ”

Reviewed Sep 25, 2018

Overall Rating

Bathroom at the beginning of the site, not super convenient.

You have to check the list to see what’s taken, don’t just assume you can have spot 25 (our bad). Walk to the beach is a bit of a walk but not too bad.

Nice State Park by the ocean and pretty decently priced for being this close to the beach. If i come back i will be sure to reserve as they go day by day unless you reserve online.

“Nice site, close to the ocean but pricy”

Reviewed Mar 23, 2018

Overall Rating

We stayed here in a bit of a pinch after our free Nationals forest site plan got thwarted due to a Hwy. 1 closure. This is a state park and our visit in March was fairly quiet. Lots of nice parking and even pavement for rigs. Spots for tents are very flat. The area is wooded and is really beautiful. The last loop is just a short eas... more

“Nice state park. Close to hipster Santa Cruz, but not too close.”

Reviewed Feb 06, 2016

Overall Rating

We stayed here during the offseason - Jan 30 through Feb 7. Two of the three campgrounds all closed this time of year and the park was nearly empty during the week, but did fill to capacity with a mix of tent and RV campers over the weekend. The campground was well maintained in my opinion - tidy, and to my pleasant surprise provi... more

“Off the Beaten Path”

Reviewed Jul 19, 2015

Overall Rating

Stayed here 5/3-4/2015 in site 27. It's kind of convoluted to get to this place from Hwy 1 so pay attention to the small signs or use your GPS. It's a few miles of the highway and surrounded by strawberry fields and the park fronts on the ocean. I was here on a Sunday and Monday nights, so there were not very many campers here. The day... more
