Loved Jalama Beach County Park!!! Stayed in two campsites. One on the beach and one above the beach. Loved both. However, the above the beach facility had electricity and that was very convenient. They were also testing wifi. Worked great even though we didn't use for any web surfing. The weather was incredible, just light sweaters during the day. The... More

When it foggy other places this place is clear. It is quiet but sometimes with a high surf. The really bad part is the long curvy road getting there. You need good brakes good eyes, good steering car. Watch out for bicycles.

Jalama is a great beach for surfing, walking or having a delicious burger. A great beach for camping as well. Can be windy .

Jalama Beach County Park requires an effort to get to. It's a 14 mile trip, one way, off Hwy 101. We went there for the first time in 30 years and had an enjoyable day. It's $10 per car for day-use. Camping spots are available and there are cool cabins there for rent. Flush toilets and showers are available. A... More

My family and I have been going to jalama beach for the past 23 years. We do not typically go to the same places but Jalama's beaches draw us back every year. It is definitely an escape from the fast paced city life with cool breezes and relaxing atmosphere. I would recommend this place to everyone.

The Jalama burger is the food of choice. Sitting on a picnic table overlooking the ocean is restful. RV park right there. It was full. We will try sometime. The park is about 20 miles from Lompoc out a basically one way road. Stop for the views, the ocean and a peaceful place unless your RV neighbors are into drinking.

Really enjoyed going back in time to hippie days visiting this beautiful beach for the day. Camping didn't look all that great and the windy long road would not be fun in our motorhome. But what was fun was arriving and finding this very busy little store where you could buy a few groceries and other camping things and also... More

Been going here for over 30 years, and it is still one of the most beautiful beaches on the central coast. Sunset Magazine wrote several articles praising the place, and now everyone knows! Hard to find a campsite now! Always expect wind, so be prepared whenever you arrive. Bathrooms need to be updated, as they haven't changed in over 30... More

My family usually does mountain camping but a friend invited us, so.... We stayed on site 70 and like any beach camp spot, you are right up against your neighbors, but this site had some shrubbery separation. Being the second row from the beach the wind was not bad at all. Bathrooms kept clean and trash was emptied regularly. WiFi... More

Jalama Beach is usually not too packed and the weather is typically nice out there. It's a short drive from Lompoc which is nice when Surf Beach isn't so accommodating for beach-goers. Also, Jalama Cafe has great burgers.
