“Oceanside! ”

Reviewed May 18, 2018

Overall Rating

While this campground is nothing more than a narrow strip of pavement sandwiched between the Pacific Ocean and the Pacific Coast Highway...if you want beach access it doesn’t get much better. As other reviewers have stated, what this place lack in amenities, it makes up for with the amazing beach right out your door! We camped there in... more

“Lots of sea life!”

Reviewed May 16, 2018

Overall Rating

Nothing between your bed and the ocean but rocky beach! The sound of the waves mostly drowns out the traffic on hwy1 which is just a few yards away from all the sites. When I was there in May the beach was too rocky to walk down or play in the water. This park takes in around $60000 a month but not much is invested in it. Really shabby... more

“Beautiful, quiet stay right on the beach”

Reviewed Mar 20, 2018

Overall Rating

We camped at this location the 12 &13th of March and the place was almost empty. All we could hear was the crashing of the waves and the smallest amount of road noise. There are 2 locations with toilets that are decently maintained and a spot for you to fill up your water. Apparently you can use the dump at the spot across the street, ... more

“Seal and dolphins with morning coffee”

Reviewed Nov 11, 2017

Overall Rating

Camping and RVing all across the country and this has definitely been one of our favorites. No hookups, $35 right on the beach and dogs are allowed! Enjoyed watching dolphins, birds and even seals and sunrise and sunset. The waves crashing cancel out most of the traffic noise! What a gem! Stayed two nights on the weekend with no r... more

Thornhill Broome is one of many places along the California coast to camp at the beach, but more peaceful than many of the others because there's less highway traffic going by. The PCH at this point isn't very heavily traveled, so it's an easy drive north to Oxnard for supplies, and also southward to Malibu. The sites are all aspha... more

“A Mixed Bag”

Reviewed Nov 24, 2015

Overall Rating

There aren't many places where you can camp right on the beach in Southern California. Tent campers can camp on the beach, and RVers have sand right outside their doorstep. As the other reviewer mentioned, sites are nose to nose. Since we arrived on a Saturday, I was worried that we'd have to parallel park, but I think that's why yo... more

“Classic Southern California beach camping”

Reviewed Apr 30, 2015

Overall Rating

It's a strip of nose--to-tail parking spaces wedged between Pacific Coast Highway and the ocean, but it's just what I wanted. Tents on the beach with the surf lulling you to sleep. Traffic noise drops off eventually.
