This location is...”ok” in my opinion. There are a ton of rocks in the beach so the kids weren’t able to play in the water. We have Verizon and had no reception. We had to drive a few miles in either direction to get service(it may be a plus to some). Lots of trash found on the beach, fire pits were full and had to be cleaned out for u... more

Okay, so like others before me...there are lots of cons to this campground, buuuuuut location, location, location! Cons - - Right next to the busy road. It does quiet down some at night as traffic slacks off, but you will hear cars all night. - No amenities - we boondock 90% of the time so we sort of expect to have some amen... more

“May have trouble exiting”

Reviewed Nov 07, 2018

Overall Rating

We had two days reserved and decided to check it out before taking the Airstream in. Nice sites right on the beach, but when we drove in (on a Monday at 1:45 p.m.) there was no one manning the entrance booth or anywhere at the campground apparently. Sites are to the side of a narrow one-way paved road, but although there is a gate at t... more

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

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

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

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

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
