This place was horrible. Rude host. Totally clueless ranger staff at kiosk. They have is no trail maps, area guides, or even knew about the swimming hole the website talked about. The swimming hole seems to be spring fed, but is full of bad bacteria...or so the camper with the rash informed us. We wanted to see the MASH tour,... More

Wonderful place to spend a day, hiking and communing with nature. You'll also enjoy seeing the site where MASH was filmed

the rock pool can get crowded but it's worth it, especially if you're going to be jumping off rocks into the water. so much fun. everyone is very nice and friendly as well. the MASH site is here which is a nice, easy hike. but so far, the rock pool is my favorite thing here.

Very nice state park that was not overly crowded even on a Memorial Day Weekend. Took the hiking trail to the site where MASH was filmed. A hot day so bring water for the longer hikes. Some people were carrying/dragging coolers to and from the lake (about 45 min walk) and they did not look like they were having fun... More

The location of this park is great. Just 10 minutes driving from US101 and the view is pretty good. The place we went for fishing was the Century Lake. First, you have to take the trail for 1.5 miles before getting to lake. The dam side is noisy with music and people crossing and swimming sometimes so it is not... More

I was so excited to go cliff jumping in the rock pool but we couldn't find it. I'm from Sacramento and I was really looking forward to going there. We spent a good 2 hours hiking and people were just pointing us in different directions. It was hot and I was really looking forward to swimming. I would love to... More

Easy hike with spectacular views. If you want more of a challenge there are trails off of the loop that are a bit more strenuous. Go early or late to beat the heat in the summer. Bring a water bottle. Take care around the water people have been injured diving off the rocks.

Malibu Creek is a beautiful State Park in the Santa Monica mountains. Best seasons to hike are late fall, winter and spring. Summer days can be very hot. This is an old movie site. Many of the movies are listed on a plaque near the little museum. The museum is only open on Saturday and Sunday. The television show M.A.S.H.... More

I loved the approximately 5 mile hike bit felt the MASH site wasn't makes well. And understated. I didn't expect Ferris wheels, nor are they there, but a sign, mess hall resting place and a few rusted vehicles don't pay proper tribute for the amount of people taking the trek Beautiful hike. Paths not marked very well for this novice.... More

I enjoyed a beautiful morning at Malibu Creek last weekend. The trails are well marked and the map (totally worth $2!) was so helpful in navigating the area. I started out on Crags Road to the M*A*S*H site - an easy 2.3 mile stroll through wooded areas. This was definitely the most heavily traveled section. I then backtracked and crossed... More
