We stay at the Thornehill broome campsite every year. It's great, campsites are large and open. You have a full view of the ocean and all its wildlife. This trip we have seen humpback whales, dolphins, sea lions and pelicans. Great place to stay for the money. Arrive early for a good spot.

If your driving up the PCH this is a wonderful spot to stop to stretch your legs and take some photos. That's all the time we had, but I'd love to come back to enjoy the hiking and beach.

I really love this place. It provides options of hikes where you can do more if you want and stay flat if you want. Add to that the amazing views from the mountains and the ocean. Breathtaking! There's good /reasonable restroom in the area. If you like to camp there's also a place. There's daily fee to pArk 12usd for... More

We love coming to Point Mugu for mountain biking usually at least a couple times per visit with some other Malibu friends. It's very primitive, not a ton of parking or facilities, just nature. Good views of the Naval Air Station, too. Nice dunes and rocks to see and climb on.

I hiked to Mugu peak several times (Chumash trail?). Also hiking La Jolla Canyon and Ray Miller to the overlook trail. Typically you have a steep climb up until you get to a plain which is mostly just grass lands but the climb in has interesting rock formations, and interesting plant life. The recent fire however turned everything black on... More

We did a short walk with the kids even walked up the sand dune and beach time . Nice clean well marked. Needs more parking.

Here it is. Views all over to enjoy. South of Pt Mugu Naval Air Station. Look across the water and check out sea lions on the beach of the Naval Air Station. It is a good place to enjoy on the way to someplace else.

I really enjoyed an afternoon of trail running here. What I really appreciated was NPS maintained Circle X Ranch building that had running water and restrooms. The facilities are a single building located on the south side of the road at 12896 Yerba Buena Rd. I accessed the trailhead about 1 mile further east on Yerba Buena Rd where there... More

The beach is fine, but he support services need improvement. A very busy beach, especially on weekends. The seals were busy playing in the surf and we caught a few pics of one chasing the waves just like a surfer. i was surprised my camera picked him up so far away. I have visited most of the beaches and this... More
