We have vacationed and scuba dived in Two Harbors every other year for the last 12 years. Two years ago when visiting there were no lockers for storage as there had been in the past. Since we always stay in the campground we would use the lockers for our scuba gear so that we didn't need to hike it up... More

t was very disappointing this year at Two Harbors Campground. If you do not enjoy seeing animals get stabbed to death, then do not come here. We've been coming here every summer for years, and we have never liked the spear fishing, but this time it was really out of hand and we will never return. It's bad enough that... More

A place to go with your boat or for camping! The views are peaceful and nice on both sides of the isthmus but plan to stay only a few days because there is not much to do other than drink (if your a boater) or hike! The restaurant, ate only one night the entire week in the dinning room, should... More

A relaxed beach feel with marina. Shuttles from the mainland bring passengers over for the day or for camping. I stayed on my boat and rode my dingy (little boat) to the dock to get to the activities. They have rentals for all sorts of water activities. A restaurant and bar along with a grocery store. Public restrooms, coin operated... More

There aren't very many things to do here which makes it perfect for a totally unplugged get-a-way. You can camp, hike, snorkel and just hangout at the beach.

I've been visiting Two Harbors for over 25 years and while it's changed a bit in that time, it still remains my favorite city in LA County. A more rustic and tranquil alternative to the overdeveloped touristville of Avalon, Two Harbors has fantastic camping, hiking, swimming, fishing and other outdoor activities. I'm always impressed by the service of the TH... More

We took 50 Boy Scouts camping at the campground last weekend and had a blast. We usually have the whole place to our selves but this year we booked the same weekend as the Catalina marathon. The campground and town are a fantastic get away form Los Angeles. Outstanding views from the campsite of the harbor and the coast of... More

This place was so awesome. So beautiful and so much fun. Definitely a must see. Make sure you do the submarine tour and the golf cart tour.
